funnylittlestory Posted November 22, 2013 Share Posted November 22, 2013 This is my first post, but I've been reading the forums throughout my W30. I've done great. I don't think I've really experienced the whole tiger blood thing, but I feel confident and healthy and proud that I've made it so far. My favorite thing is that I no longer have blood sugar swings. No more ups and downs! Even when I am hungry, I don't feel that frantic hunger where you would eat anything at all. I can always wait until meal time. So why, in the name of all that is good and holy, am I so completely looking forward to everything I "can" eat on Monday? For me it's a permission thing. On the W30 there are rules. It's almost as if I don't have control over it. There are things I can and cannot eat, period. Once the 30 is over, it's back to me to make choices. I don't trust myself to choose my food when I have everything to choose from. I do not want to go back to eating junk. I ate pretty well before W30--probably 70/30 paleo. But over the last few weeks I didn't even really miss the treats I used to eat. Didn't think much about ice cream or pancakes or chocolate chips or oatmeal or anything. Now all of a sudden I have these cravings. Shouldn't they be gone? I know I don't have to eat any of that garbage on day 31. I know that I pick what I put in my body and I can choose to eat like this for as long as I like. But I really am not looking forward to having an internal mental struggle over potato chips for the rest of my life. When does this go away? Link to comment
