aped Posted November 5, 2012 Share Posted November 5, 2012 I'm seriously struggling. Life after the Whole30 isn't doing well for me. It's like without that "Whole30" title i'm falling apart. I did so freaking well, and I didn't even splurge when I lost my best friend--my 4 legged son. Now, i'm not so good. It's like all the pent up emotional eating is coming out. I try really hard, and I know that I do better without dairy but the bad days I've had i'm like, "Eh, what the heck." I don't know where it is coming from, and quite frankly it sucks. I don't want it to be like that. I've read and reread the chapter in the book about getting back on and doing a whole7, 14, etc. But, my emotions have just been a wreck. I'm working on getting back on track emotionally (acupuncture). I'll get back on w/ the guidelines, and I feel better but then another day comes where I give in. It's so weird. I know the flow chart and to be completely honest, I run it through my head. But, I guess, for this time--my body concedes w/ the eating being better somehow. Maybe i'm not scrutinizing it enough. The things I thought I would struggle with from the beginning of the Whole30 aren't even the problem--i.e., coffee w/ cream or half and half. I don't even like it anymore. It's the comfort foods--ice cream, cupcakes, and only for a time pumpkin spice lattes from my favorite place ever Atwaters. I don't do bread or gluten, well except when I eat a cupcake. To be honest too, the ice cream isn't really that bad, it is the damn cupcakes which is weird. That was the one thing I craved the ENTIRE Whole30. Before the Whole30, ice cream was my passion. Ok, that's totally more of a rant than asking for guidance, but does anyone have thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
