ereiam Posted October 11, 2012 Share Posted October 11, 2012 I did my Whole30 in August and finished up on August 30. I had been eating paleo for about 6 months before that but had started "cheating" a lot. The Whole30 totally put me back on track. I felt good and I lost 10 lbs. (I still have about 25 more pounds to lose.) But I have totally gotten off track and it is only Oct. 11th. I'm so discouraged and don't really know what to do at this point. I had told myself that I would start another Whole 30 if I got off track again, but I didn't think it would be after 6 weeks. Really? I can only make it 6 weeks without blowing all the benefits of a W30? Here's what I did: I decided to let myself cheat once a week (or treat as a better way to look at it). So I had chips and salsa and I had Hershey's kisses and then I started having wheat. I ate a burrito and I ate some pizza. And I was eating a lot of sugar, cookies cake, etc. Somehow I only gained back 3 pounds, but I feel like crap. I think it's time to start another Whole30, but I wonder if this is just going to be it for me. Whole30, cheat, Whole30, cheat. Do I need to do a W30 for life? I felt so deprived while I was doing my W30 and kept looking forward to easing things up when I was done, but I have obviously loosened up way too much. I am sick of being so f*ed up about food. I had sanity on the W30, just not satisfaction. Maybe I'm not going to have satisfaction. Maybe that's the price I will pay for sanity. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
