Well I’m in the middle of my second week in Whole30. Some days are better than others. Sometimes I feel like I have so much energy I could go for a run, and other times I just want to crawl under my desk at work and take a big long nap. I know that my body is still adjusting and this is all normal. I can say that I have noticed a few changes for the better.
1. 3 meals a day and 1 snack – I used to have to eat small meals like every 2-3 hours or I’d get so hungry I was agitated. I would get cranky and unreasonable. I knew it wasn’t normal, but I didn’t know how to stop it. I now eat my breakfast, lunch, and supper with barely a thought about food in between. In fact depending on what I’m eating I might not even be hungry when it’s time for those 3 meals! That is huge for me.
2. I haven’t been handling stress with food – There have been a few stressful things going on in this last week. And my husband can attest to this – I handle ALL stress with food. If I had a bad day at work, or something didn’t work out as I hoped – I would come home and bug him to let me eat. It was always something unhealthy and then after I would beat myself up about it. This last week food either didn’t pop up in my head, OR if it did I was able to calmly push the thought out of my head. I may not be able to always control the thoughts, but I feel that I’m more in control of what I do with those thoughts.
3. Cloths fitting better – I’m only on day 12, but I feel like my cloths are starting to fit me better. I have SOOO much weight to lose so it’s not that I feel skinny or anything. lol But I have noticed that the cloths I currently are in are not cutting into me and even look loose. While the whole time I’m not feeling hungry. I love it!
I’ll do another update next week with how I’m feeling, and I hope if anyone is thinking about doing the Whole30 that you give it a try! It’s only 30 days and so far I don’t regret one day of it.
