melody Posted January 22, 2013 Share Posted January 22, 2013 Last night my husband was eating corn chips in the evening and I was really tempted to have some. But I didn't eat them. Instead I "cheated" and ate a bowl of blueberries with coconut milk, spice, and pistachios. It was a total SWYPN dessert. I've never been a dieter, so the whole concept of cheating is a new thought pattern that for me that only began when I started Whole30. I find the whole SWYPN concept a bit odd, but I felt totally guilty while I was eating the berries last night. The only other time in my life when I can remember feeling guilty for anything I've eaten in my life was when I was a child and snuck cookies that weren't meant for me. But that's a different type of guilt. I found myself mentally beating myself up today for the "cheat" last night. Not a good feeling. And also not what I think Whole30 is really supposed to be about. I started Whole30 to eat a cleaner diet and feel healthier. But so far I haven't felt healthier. Yes, I have had sustained energy and (for the most part) haven't felt a need to snack. That part I love. And my sleep seems to be a bit better. But for the past week or two I've been grumpy, irritable, and non-stop cranky. Totally not like me at all. I still can't fit into my normal pants (had gone up a size before starting this). My digestion isn't working so well--I've been cramping & constipated almost as if I had eaten gluten (Which I haven't). I really want this program to work for me and I'm not sure why it's not. I'm on Day20 and know it takes longer for some people, I get that, but is it normal for things to get a whole lot worse? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
