(m)eat to live Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 It's day 31! I have to say, this has been such an interesting process. I learned so much about food and I'm already planning another Whole30 for January Good things that happened in the last 30 days: * I lost 10 lbs. - without additional exercise, counting calories, feeling hungry, or thinking about it much at all, really. * I tried a lot of new foods and found some delicious new favorite recipes! * I got organized! It was sort of a necessity to stay on track, but I love my new meal plan calendar so much, I'm sticking with it! This will save me SO much time! * I got to know some of my local farmers at the farmers' market! It's nice to meet the people who grow/raise my food and I feel good about contributing to my local economy in such an important way. * I feel a LOT better! Between my thyroid and teething child, fatigue is just part of my life, but I have twice as much energy as I did before, even though I'm still not getting enough sleep. (Trying my best to improve this!) Reasons to stick with this new lifestyle: * I still have weird aches and pains in my muscles with no apparent cause. I'm hoping this changes someday in the future. * I only lost 10 lbs. For some reason, I really expected more, based on the way my clothes are hanging off of me. I know I shouldn't be upset about this! I'm working on it. * I still have gas and bloating sometimes. I haven't been able to trace the cause. * My breastfed child has all but stopped spitting up! Perhaps something I was eating before was upsetting her stomach. * One of my first thoughts this morning was, "I could have a chocolate bar if I wanted..." Yikes. So, all in all, I loved the Whole30, I will definitely be doing it again, and I intend to stick to a lot of the changes I've made! I'll be doing a reintroduction of some foods to see how I feel, but I've also realized there are some that I don't miss at all. (Like rice. I don't think I ever need to eat rice again. Plus, hello arsenic? Ew.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
