karenD Posted October 9, 2014 Share Posted October 9, 2014 Hi. I am now on day 18 of my Whole30 and as far as I am aware, I have stuck to the rules 100%. I decided to do the program in an attempt to "reset" my eating and drinking habits. I am an absolute sugar fiend (and have been since I was a little girl) with the ability to consume the most unbelievable amounts of the stuff without even flinching. I also love my wine and tend to drink a glass if not two of dry white wine almost every night of the week. Based on those habits I expected the Whole30 to be torture. I also expected massive gains (in how I felt and in how I looked) if I stuck to it. The odd thing is - neither have happened. I read the timeline and waited to go through the madness of the first 10 days but didn't experience much at all - perhaps a slight headache on day 3. I geared myself up for the insane sugar cravings but again - they haven't happened. And - I eagerly waited for the "tiger blood" and slimming down phase but alas... nothing. The only change I can see is that my nails - which I have never been able to grow - seem stronger than before. Question I am obviously asking myself is - why continue. Sure it's not terribly difficult but it isn't as easy as eating exactly what the rest of my family eat and as a full time working mom with a fairly stressful job and two young sons - easy is awesome. . And, I would really love to have a glass of wine with my husband in the evenings again. If I feel and look pretty much the same as I did on Day 1 - does that mean its simply not working for me? Would really like to hear your thoughts. Will be sticking to the programme in the meantime - or at least until I get through all the vegetables I have in the fridge. Thanks so much.
