aj123 Posted January 28, 2014 Share Posted January 28, 2014 Hi, I am on Day 21 of my Whole 30. Positives first, I am feeling good! I am sleeping great, have more energy, severely reduced cravings, and my skin looks great! And I am really happy about all of that. However, I had my 3rd baby 7 months ago and I have 35 lbs to lose and I am getting really discouraged. I did a Whole 30 before my last pregnancy to help with insomnia and had the fabulous side effect of losing that "last 10 pounds" . I felt great, really great, and just happened to get pregnant the next month(after trying for 14 months). So I am a huge believer in Whole 30 but am starting to really get frustrated with not losing ANY weight so far. I am especially shocked because I was eating so poorly to my Whole 30...cookies, ice cream, wine, and snacking on cereal at late night feedings. I really thought once I jumped on board with this I would see some results. I am definitely going to stick with the Whole 30 and continue eating in this style after in ends because I do feel so great. But just wondering if there is anything I am doing wrong that is stalling the weight loss. So here is what I eat on a daily basis.... Meal 1: at least 2 cups of veggies cooked in 1 T of coconut oil, 3 eggs cooked in the same oil I used on veggies. Coffee with 1 T of Kerrigold( I know this is not Whole 30 but I never had a problem with it effecting my sleep or energy after my first Whole 30 so I kept it in for this one...could this be an issue?) No snacking...which is crazy amazing for me! Meal 2: salad with tons of veggies, and a palm size of protein(either leftovers, deli meat, or tuna, and bacon), 2 T of olive oil and 1 T balsamic. 1/2 avacado No snacking..again amazing for me but I do have another coffee with 1T of kerrigold between 1 and 2 on most days. Meal 3: At least 2 cups of veggies and 1 or 2(mostly closer to 2 palm size serving of protein) using recipes for Clothes Make the Girl and Well Fed etc. So most are prepped with 2-4 T of fat. After dinner I have a small apple with 2 t of sunbutter I am drinking water...between 80-100 oz a day and am exercising not much but I wasn't at all before my Whole 30. I do 2x 40 minute walk/runs and 2x yoga DVD each week. Oh yes, and I am not breastfeeding. Anything you can see I should change or do I just need to be patient this time around? Thanks so much!
