Melody7464 Posted March 12, 2014 Share Posted March 12, 2014 I'm well into my third week of Whole30 this week & while I'm proud of myself for having stuck with it so diligently, I'm beginning to get a bit discouraged by the lack of results I'm seeing. As a bit of a back story, I was on the Medifast plan for a couple of years, on which I lost around 50 lbs. During that time, I was also working out around 5-6 days a week - which I found out later was a reason I plateaud. We tried a variety of things to correct it - more protein, fewer Medifast meals, etc. - but nothing would make it budge. I finally got so discouraged with it - and frankly, tired of eating all the prepackaged food - that I decided to go it alone. And, of course, I regained about 20 of the lbs. I lost. I heard about Whole30 through a friend & decided to try it. I got started on February 24th with high hopes of more energy, weight loss, etc. However, as of today, I'm still feeling a bit bloated, my clothing doesn't fit any differently, I'm extremely tired/sleepy all the time & just not even close to where the guideline says I should be at this point. My meal plans are essentially the same every day (creature of habit) - poached eggs, spinach, tomato & avocado for breakfast; roasted veggies & fish for lunch; lettuce wraps of GF turkey or avocado/shrimp salad for dinner; snacks of fruit & nuts (not excessively, as I messed up the first week with smoothies). Am I simply impatient? Or is there something more I could/should be doing? Thanks for any help you guys can offer! Melody Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
