MeghanOD77 Posted March 23, 2015 Share Posted March 23, 2015 First, I'd like to say that I am so proud of myself for actually sticking to this. It's hard (in a sense that there is a LOT of cooking, a LOT of prep, etc) but it's possible! This, coming from someone who doesn't cook at all to begin with. My husband and I basically went out to eat all the time. Neither of us were ever unhealthy eaters, but we're also not cooks! So that was my first nervous challenge. I'm getting quite good! Shopping each week is getting better too. Anyway, it's day 14, and I was sort of hoping I'd feel different in my clothes a bit. I'm 5'8' and started this at 154, so not so bad... plus I have a personal trainer (have for the past 15 months) that I see 3 x a week, so I am strong. Any other "diet" I was on, like extreme ones like Dukan (I know, don't judge) and slow carb... almost instantly I'd feel different in my clothes. B/c for me, removing carbs from my diet my belly would immediately respond. Now, not so much. The only time I feel any slimmer is first thing in the morning. I know it's not a diet. I know it's a reboot. I'm not discouraged to the point where I'd give up. Not at all. My husband is doing this with me - he's awesome and always on board for my crazy ideas! I think we both individually have things that we THINK have improved? Maybe recovery time after his hockey games are shortened... same with my recovery time after the gym. I sleep better and I believe he does too (I've introduced him to natural calm and I think that's helped him too). I wake up alert in the morning instead of wanting to sleep for another 5 hours. I believe he does too. He feels an extreme focus on things now (he runs a business and is laser focused now) and I guess maybe that has something to do with this reboot too? But... my clothes feel the same. I know it's only day 14. I should be patient. But I'm just 2 days from "tiger blood" and I'm getting a touch nervous. I try not to set myself up for too much of a disappointment, but maybe I won't lose a pound? Maybe my clothes will feel the same after 30 days. That would be a bummer. Oh - I'd like to add that I didn't experience the Day 8-9 my pants are tight phase. Anyway - I guess maybe I'm just looking for a little bit of reassurance that it's ok to still fit the same in my clothes? Maybe there's still time for that to change? Sigh...
