Noboru Posted May 27, 2014 Share Posted May 27, 2014 I know the Whole 30 isn't a weight loss diet but since I did need to lose some weight (I had a baby 12 weeks ago), it was a lovely bonus to discover at the end that I had somehow, fairly painlessly, managed to get back to my pre-baby weight. I felt great! I felt light and slim again, after months of feeling ungainly and heavy. Then, on Day 31, my husband (also on the W30) and I celebrated with our first night out alone since I was pregnant- some wine, some tapas, followed up with a lovely, semi indulgent brunch (crusty rolls, bacon and eggs, tea and chocolate digestives...). Basically, we had a weekend of some of our old favourites, not stuffing our faces but tasting little bits and pieces that we had missed. It was really nice but we realized that we didn't like the heavy feeling in our guts or the sugar spikes so we're back on the Whole 30 again today. So that's cool. What I don't understand is how I managed to regain half of what I'd lost in just 2 days... I had been so happy to find myself back at my pre-pregnancy weight- relieved that it had been so effortless thanks to the Whole 30. But was it just an illusion? Was it all just water and bloating? I'm confused. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
