peacefullyfierce Posted April 9, 2017 Share Posted April 9, 2017 Well, well, well. I'm starting my Whole30 over. Poop. This would have been Day 9. I had vowed to order club soda with lime and olives last night, and this morning, I'm still tipsy and my tummy hurts. Curses. I'm an adult, no one to blame but myself for making a different choice than I thought I was going to. Do I regret it? Yes. Was it worth it? Mmmmmm, it was a pretty fun night…..and I don't know if it would have been as fun without all those Dirty Shirleys. Interestingly, when I woke up at noon just now, I also was like, screw it, I'm having a cookie too, and the cookie didn't even taste good so I took one bite and left it. Wow! I feel like that's a non scale victory. My taste buds did seem to change within just the first couple of days of this program, everything tasted so good, it was like waking up. Also, I just felt better in general. My jeans were falling off me and my overall body composition was leaner. My skin seemed nicer without makeup. I was enjoying food and the process of eating/preparing it. I was just getting to the point where I didn't care about weighing or measuring my food, which is a big coping mechanism for me. I know this forum isn't moderated, so I hope that it's ok that I 1) curse, and 2) talk about doing things that aren't ok to do. I am in recovery from an eating disorder, never been inpatient and it's been ten or so years since my lowest weight, but I still carry certain behaviors with me, and when life feels out of control, I quantify things. So to just eat, and enjoy it, and feel hunger and fullness and satiety, that was a NSV. I don't feel those things the same as other people. And to not have weighed myself for 8 days was good too. I didn't step on there this morning, either. So I'm starting over! My coffee right now has Nutpod in it (it's still disgusting, sorry, won't be buying those again) and I'm considering this my Day 1 again as of noon, April 9th!!! (because of that dumb bite of cookie and because my last drink was after midnight last night but I really want to get right back on track today!!! Extra water to flush out these toxins, extra rest, and I'll be fine! I will use this forum as a journal of sorts, to keep me accountable and log my food and how it made me feel, any symptoms or stressors, and who knows, maybe my situation will be helpful to others and I can find others helpful to me. Everyone's Whole30 path is different, but we all have a common goal, to FEEl BETTER! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
