Hi All!


Well day 30 came and went yesterday and today is day 31!!!


For those who want quick stats on the success of my own Whole30....


Weight Loss: 12lbs

Waist loss in inches: 2

Hips loss in inches: 2

Number of migraines in the past 30 days: 1 (on day 3)


I am totally in love with Whole30. The first 3 weeks (yes 3) were HARD. Tough Love. Tiring. Draining. Exhausting.....But the past 5-6 days have been fantastic! I have been so full of energy, have almost completely forgot that I was on a Whole30 until I was thrown into situations where those around me offered me food or questioned my choices.


I found once I got into the swing of it, meal planning and making sure I was being compliant were just as simple and straight forward as brushing my teeth twice a day. I am so appreciative of the lessons I have learned on whole30. It wasn't until the very last days that I came to appreciate these though. Throughout most of my whole30 I just kept thinking "Yeah I can feel I'm loosing weight and maaayyybbeee feeling a bit better but I am for sure just gonna eat a huge chocolate bar on day 31". But now I am ready to make some serious comitments. I feel like I want to try and stay whole30 compliant as often as I can. I'm going to allow myself the occassional off plan item but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I like paleo baking and will do it when I feel like it, and I am a social bunny so will divulge in that as often as I feel it is worth it.


I didn't come into whole30 with any dietary restrictions apart from that fact that large intakes of dairy really hit off my Aura Migraines. I am overweight (in a scale and non-scale kind of way...I jiggle a bit!) and have a little way to go yet to reaching what I think will be my optimum health, but not weighing myself has been liberating. I know if I continue my whle30 lifestyle I will only get healthier and reach what is optimum for myself. I also know that I need to increase my fitness to get there. I only attended Zumba once a week whilst on whole30 because I felt so tired and drained, so I'd like to intensify my workouts and try HIIT.


Writing my success story, I finally realise why others write so much too. I just want to shout about how great Whole30 is, and rave about my results and my happiness after completing a whole 30 days of healthy, nutritous, good-for-you eating!


I wish everyone the best of luck, and even if your reading this on day 23 (like I was doing) and thinking....this is not going to happen to me...it will, you will get there and it will feel awesome!

Congratulations! I'm glad to hear that you experienced some exhaustion too. I thought it was just me.  :-)  I'm on day 11 now. I have pretty good energy in the morning but by the afternoon and evening I'm pretty spent. I've been eating a banana in the afternoons to help give me a little energy boost (and avoid thoughts of the snack machine).
