I loved this.  The dizzying highs, the terrifying lows....

today is day 32. I was very sure that I hadn't lost much weight. I was guessing about 4 pounds.  Day 30, crack of dawn I jumped on that scale and...8 pounds!! I am 5"2" so that is quite a lot of weight for me, but I had been carefully scrutinizing myself the whole month and I never would have thought I lost that! When I have been on Weight Watchers and dropped 6 pounds in a month my pants are MUCH roomier, but not with the W30.  My face is narrower, my breasts are smaller, (not need a new bra size, but smaller) and I guess my pants are more comfortable, but not like when I have lost weight in the past.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I feel like maybe it's not actually water weight like on the other diets so that's why?

The really best part is that I absolutely loved this experience.  NSV indeed.  I am continuing with it happily and gratefully.

Anyone else surprised in this way?

If I remember what I read in "It Starts with Food" correctly, we're losing inflammation as opposed to water weight.

I typically lose about ten pounds when I do a Whole30 but it all comes back when I'm done and reintroduce cheese (the only dairy I ever reintroduce). I'll have a little bit of Irish cheddar and will be five pounds heavier the next morning because it causes so much inflammation in my body.

Hi Bex111 - I finished my first (and so far only) W30 at the end of March, so about a month before you - and I wondered how you are doing now.  It has been an amazing 6 months for me as all of those good things continued to happen and honestly it's been tremendous fun.  It has also been super expensive (though I am willing to pay that price!) because I am in the process of literally replacing my entire wardrobe.   I hope your journey has continued to be wonderful.
