SkiBlue Posted April 26, 2015 Share Posted April 26, 2015 Today marks the start date for my second Whole30. I completed my 1st Whole30 recently in January and make the mistake of not trying it for longer to help with bad habits and skipping the entire reintroduction protocol. So it ended like every other time I tried to make a permanent change. I'm here this time around because I'd really like to make a conscious effort to change my food habits along the way this time, like it's really meant to be done. I'm also here because I tried to restart after January and have been struggling to stick to it the 2nd time around. I was hoping to keep myself accountable here, really analyze what's going on with me and my thoughts throughout this one, and hopefully get some tips and encouragement along the way In January, the Whole30 worked wonders for me. What happened wasn't the Whole30's fault, but mine. Instead of really evaluating my food habits and coming up with different solutions to old habits, I just focused on following the rules. When the Whole30 ended, I knew that I hadn't made enough progress with my relationship with food. During the Whole30, I would munch on raisins and snack on fruit when I felt like I needed sugar or a treat, instead of snacking on something else, or changing the habit entirely. Instead of giving myself more time on the Whole30, I stopped and didn't follow the reintroduction protocol, letting my cravings come right back after I finally felt like I had control over them. That will be my focus for this second time around, which is why I believe it'll be harder than the first one. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
