Day 17 Whole30 losing weight

Saturday, November 10, 2012

No, you are not supposed to get on the scale. I knew I would have to break that when I started as I previously committed to a weekly weigh in on my 5% fall weight loss challenge.
So, I do get to see the weight weekly an am down again. Just needed to feel what is right, amount, type of food. In this case, I cut back on the carbs, increased the protein and cut the fat some. I cut way back on the nuts. I am allowing more today as a calorie challenge.
This Whole30 way of eating is soooooooo tasty, so natural, so basic. I noticed that I was full 1/2 way through my plate of bkfst of two strips unprocessed pasture bacon, two eggs, 1/2 avocado, and two T coconut oil. I trimmed it back to 1 egg and a slice of avocado with the rest.
I don't make myself eat at a certain time if I am not hungry yet. I keep my homemade grass fed beef jerky around if I need a snack.
I have lots of food made ahead into meals that are ready to eat.
I am taking care of my gut with homemade pickled cauliflower.
My weight is down again, I feel like I am going for the goal and making it. I think you have to be patient with yourself and recognize when you are ready.
Seems like I have lost some and hung out at that weight for a while, then get Sparked to drop a little more and hang out there.
With some preparation of meals and not focusing on a scale, this is a breeze.
Well, outside for some MI training in the pool. Get the body cold and it has to give up calories to keep the core temperature. FREE WEIGHT LOSS!

    Patience is a virtue. As long as it doesn't become procrastination. LOL Sounds like you are doing great.

    Good for you! You are in the spot I'd like to be in - where diet simply means what you eat on a daily basis instead of some horrible restrictive plan. emoticon

    It always sounded so restrictive to me until I did HCG. I think I might be able to tackle it in the near future. Was thinking of trying JJ Virgin's Virgin Diet where you eliminate 7 foods to lose 7 lbs in 7 days. Goes on for 21 days total and there's no dairy, soy, corn, gluten, eggs, peanuts and sugar/artificial sweeteners. Giving up eggs will be really tough, and the butter part of dairy. I figure it's a good elimination diet. She seems to stress lean meats, though, and I don't get that because you add in a fair amount of "good" fats. Maybe it presumes you can't get grass-fed/pasture-raised meats.

    Going to have to research this one. Did you get all of your info online, or from a book?

    I've been on a similar regimen for two weeks now, and am losing weight after being on a forever plateau and almost given up hope
that I'd ever lose any more weight. Best
wishes for continued success.
