Freeeating Posted December 7, 2013 Share Posted December 7, 2013 What magic 30 days! My weight didn't change, that was a bit more surprising than disappointing, that is ok, I don't trust you and depend on you anymore, scale! What went well? 1. Tried so many fabulous recipes and learned so many ways of preparing and storing food, my fridge is always full of satisfying healthy food. I will definitely continue using them as my weapon to defend against cravings! 2. I can't believe I didn't touch sugar and junk food for 30 days, before I need to lock up or throw away all the junks so I wouldn't eat them, now they don't talk back to me anymore even right in front of me. 3. Didn't live on scale, that includes food scale to count calories and weight scale to measure myself, that really set me free and make me listent to my body much more. What could have gone better? I was sick from a flu for almost half of these 30 days, so if I were not, the whole experience probably would be even better, that is probably the only thing I can think ofâ€¦ What I will do in the future? I actually plan to do another whole 30, starting on Monday, rather than â€œreintroâ€, I want to do a reextro, I want to get rid of nuts, starchy vegetables and dried fruits to see how they affect my body, I think the main reason I didn't lose any weight might be due to the excess of nuts or just excess of eating, I am still not sure how much I should eat to feel full so I won't be tempted by the bad food. I think the biggest lesson I learned is that, life is a long journey, it is not ONE meal on the plate that I need to calculate how much calories in it, it is not ONE number on the scale in the morning that negates all the effort I put in the day before. Give myself some time, enjoy my meal, enjoy the good mood, experiment and adjust, 30 days at a time! Thank you for all your support and suggestions! Here is my log for the past 30 days, I plan to start a new one on Monday. http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/14577-new-start/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
