csullivan18 Posted January 9, 2017 Share Posted January 9, 2017 Disclaimer: I have not been on the scale since Day 0. I am on Day 14, this is my first Whole30. So in the 2 weeks that I've been strictly abiding by the rules of Whole30 I've seen a lot of change in my body composition. My stomach is flatter, my thighs are thinner, and when I lift weights my arms are noticeably more lean. However, I have this sneaky suspicion that on Day 31 when I get on a scale I'm going to be sorely disappointed. I know the Whole30 isn't presented as a weight loss challenge, and I'm desperately trying to remove pre-conceived ideas that I should lose weight. If it were up to me I'd never step on a scale again, but here's the thing: On January 23rd, they're starting an incentive based challenge at work (meaning if I complete it I get money). It's an 8 week challenge starting 4 days before my Day 31. I want to do this because, hey, easy money... On the other hand, part of the challenge incorporates weight loss. I could theoretically complete the challenge without losing a pound, but I have to make sure I do cardio and weight training every time I go to the gym and I have to go 5 days a week. I try to hit the gym 5 days a week, but I work full-time, go to school, I'm a wife, a mom, and I have a household to run. Sometimes 5 days a week doesn't always happen. Does anyone have some words of encouragement for how to handle potential weight loss disappointment? Link to comment
