MrsPefy13 Posted March 24, 2014 Share Posted March 24, 2014 Hi all, I'm on day 24 and usually feeling pretty good at this point (at least relative to how I used to feel, no tigerblood though) but today is just not a good day.I didn't sleep well and I'm just feeling really discouraged and anxious about what I'm going to do after my whole30 ends. I'm significantly overweight- 225lbs, 5'7" and I've been a chronic dieter for over 3 years now - usually weight watchers/calorie counting and a brief stint following the "Sugar Busters" method. I'm worried that I won't lose weight, or God forbid I will gain weight by the time this is over. I'm a true scale addict (my husband had to hide the scale from me this month) and I'm worried if I don't see numbers I'm hoping for that I'll fall off and start binging again - because that's what chronic dieting/failing has created in me. I've tried looking for some advice or encouragement here, but it looks like most of the people who express concerns about weightloss only need to lose 10-30lbs. I have a hard time relating to their "ditch the scale and follow how your body feels" theory because I have such a significant amount to lose and I'm worried that if I do that I'll never get healthy - which I know sounds ridiculous. I'm sure I'm just in a funk because I couldn't sleep last night and that I'll feel better tomorrow, but I'd appreciate any advice or encouragement.
