Whole 30 End Week 3
Friday, May 24, 2013
BODY - I've slimmed down a good amount over the last 2 weeks. Of course my chest was the first to go as it always is when I loose weight. I'm happy to report that I also lost a great deal in my waist and have started to finally loose some weight off my hips. I'm hopeful my saddlebags are next to start shrinking. I'm easily slipping into old pairs of capris that I either couldn't fit into or were quite tight when I went on my annual vacation to Disney this past January 2013.
FOOD - I've only had one intense round of cravings for a bag of sweet potato chips I opened up for my daughter. Salty crunchy is my weakness and technically I can have sweet potatoes on this meal plan so my brain went wacko but I was able to control myself and not eat any. There have been a couple days where I've needed a small handful of nuts between lunch and dinner but part of that was waiting too long between meals or from not having enough to eat at lunch.
MOOD - I'm happy! I had a couple days this week where I was more tired than normal but the pollen count has been high and the weather turned hot and humid fast so I had some trouble sleeping. I'm in a fabulous mood today because I was able to buy 6 new shirts, 2 skirts and a pair of capris and everything I brought into the dressing room fit and looked great. It's been years since I've had a good experience in the dressing room.
OPINION - As of today I can't imagine eating another bite of dairy, legumes or grains. I know that after the end of the Whole 30 that I will occasionally indulge in a piece of GF cake or some coconut milk ice cream or I will have a GF sandwich or a few slices of GF pizza but I feel SO GREAT that those treats will truly be just that, occasional treats. I'm over 40 and have been struggling with these last 10-15 lbs of weight gain for the past 6 years and for the first time I'm loosing weight without counting, measuring, starving or killing myself in the gym. I have energy, I'm happy and I fit into my clothes. I feel that I will eat this way forever.
