TracyA Posted January 20, 2016 Share Posted January 20, 2016 Hi everyone! This is my first post and my first time doing the Whole30. I decided to start looking into this program about 2 weeks ago. As I was researching and learning I was easing myself into the program...having some Whole30 approved meals here and there and just generally trying to refrain from any foods that are not approved as much as possible. I didn't want to officially start until I felt I truly understood the program. Yesterday was my official Day 1. Yesterday went great! I had made a shopping list based on a few recipes I found in the Whole30 book. I had shopped and I was ready with a plan. This morning, I woke up and before I even got out of bed I thought about cheating and having my morning coffee with cream and sugar! So, I will confess that I broke the rules and got on the scale. I will admit that I am still at the mindset of being motivated by progress. I had weighted myself on Monday morning (because that has always been my Weight Watchers weigh-in day and it has become a habit that I will have to break). When I got on the scale this morning [moderator edit to remove scale results as weighing is against the rules]. I happily skipped my coffee and am enjoying some leftover "Melissa's Chicken Hash" for breakfast. I am going to try very hard to break my scale addiction and not weigh myself again for the duration of my Whole30, but I knew that if I saw results on that scale it would motivate me to keep going vs. quitting already on Day 2! I had to choose the lesser of the two evils. Can anyone else relate? This is going to be a mentality challenge for me more than anything else. I just thought I would post here to introduce myself so that I can get some support along my journey! If any of you who have done Whole30 before can relate to my mental challenge, any advice or suggestions would be appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
