Jessica M. Posted February 18, 2013 Share Posted February 18, 2013 Friday was the end of my Whole45. I'd found ISWF over the holidays and jumped with my eyes closed into a Whole30 on January 2, not feeling very braveâ€”more skeptical of my ability to give up so much, cold turkey. Even my best friend was shocked and called to tell me I was crazy. After a couple of weeks, I was adjusting and feeling like I COULD make it to 30 days. In the 20s, I realized it was juuuuuuusssst starting to work, so I should take it to 45 days. Admittedly, I was good on the food part of the W30 plan, not good at the other stuffâ€”sleep, stress management, exercise, mindful eatingâ€”I'd grade myself an F for all of those. Still, I lost 12 pounds and am starting to see improvements in mood and attitude. I have at least 70 more pounds to lose (charts say at 5'1" I should be 114-118, I would be happy at 130 or 140), and I am on medications for anxiety and depression I would like to ditch. So, I will be backing off for a couple of weeks and then dragging my husband along on another Whole30, this time hopefully mixing in more sleep and at least a little exercise. Went off-plan a bit Friday night and had 2 Girl Scout cookies yesterday (Saturday), so have not really done good reintroductions yet. Saturday and Sunday, I had some sour cream and full-fat greek yogurt (plain, with fruit). Thought that went fine, but I did have a stomach ache yesterday. I had a sore throat too, so I thought it was part of that, but perhaps the yogurt. Just put 2 teaspoons of maple syrup in my coffee with coconut milk. I don't like it enough to tempt my sugar dragons. Back to compliancy for at least a few days. More detail later, need to get out of the house.
