round 2 help much appreciated :)


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I completed my first round of whole 30 over the summer. I was so proud of myself and almost slightly prideful and self righteous during it. I couldnt believe that I actually made the commitment to the strict 30 days and held myself to it. It was tough. 4th of July, girls wine nights, etc. I was sure at the end of the 30 days I would "see"  significant physical changes. Well I did not and the scale said I gained a pound. I was livid and bitter to say the least. But I remember how much better I felt from doing the Whole 30, no bloating, I was regular, I had more energy and definitly slept better. I also did not follow the reintroduction protocol because i was so angry that I had gained weight. So now Im here 7 months later and my body is screaming at me. I am constantly bloated and full feeling and my sugar dragon is worse than ever. I know I need to do another round for strictly the purpose of feeling better but in the back of my mind I want to lose some weight. I am not over weight and have been the same weight for a while now. I am sick of feeling "gross". I am an athlete and i should feel good inside my body and right now I do not.


Anyways I am resisting doing a round 2. I know how hard it was on the first round at times. I also was off during the summer and could focus on me 100% and now I am back at work ( Kindergarten teacher) and my days are crazy. I find myself reaching for anything sugary at school. I know these are fear in the form of excuses. 


So I would love and welcome any loving constructive suggestions to help me take the dive into choosing whats right. I know that it truly is one day at a time.

Hi Sarah!  I did my first whole30 in July as well.  I did lose weight, but gained it all back. I went back to my eating habits, and did not do the reintroduction. I tried to do the Whole30 in January and only lasted 7 days. I started again on Sunday, February 21st. I am on Day 5. I plan on sticking to it this time around.  I just felt so good the first time and I am angry at myself for letting that feeling go.  I will do the reintro right this time, and not just bail at 30 days.


I think it is harder the second time around.  Only because we know that it can be done, have done it in fact.  But, for me I am not done learning.  So, I have to do it again. I obviously learned some stuff the first time around, but not enough.


You can do it!  Just do it!  Make a list of the NSV you want and see if those are achievalbe at the end of the second round of Whole30.
