SalsaEzz Posted March 10, 2014 Share Posted March 10, 2014 I'm back! I successfully completed a Whole20 last month but was plagued by constipation, stomach pain & bloating in weeks 2 & 3. I ended up in the ER on day 21 and my blood sugar dropped so low that I was injected with a huge syringe of glucogen, fed a sandwich and juice... Plus 2 days of hospital food.. There goes my Whole30 Emergency surgery Monday morning for a burst ovarian cyst with a half cup of blood in my abdomen, a week of comfort foods at mums and now back home and ready to start again tomorrow. Here's to a better Whole30 second time around! I really was on struggle street those last couple of weeks feeling lousy but hopefully that was just my medical issues. What have I already learnt for this time around? - have bought natural calm & digestive enzymes - will include a carb dense vegetable with all meals where I can - will monitor protein portions as I think I was over doing it affecting weight loss - will take measurements this time (but conscious of belly due to post op swelling) - no stressing about what I'm eating or over analysing myself in the mirror, compulsive squishing, is my stomach flatter today!?! or weighing until the end. I'm going to hide the scales and move my mirror to the living area - stop obsessively scouring for success stories and before and afters and expecting the exact same of my body Plus this time I will get to exercise! Last time I was on rest due to an internal oblique tear. Last meal of Pad Thai tonight! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
