I posted this on Monday because really what I have missed the most this whole time is Chocolate Shakeology... so you better bet I had my chocolate Shakeology first thing this morning and it was too sweet for me to drink! I tried again with Vanilla after I worked out and it was better! I was glad to have it back in my life.
Sooooooooooo what do I think?
I think Whole30 literally changed my life. I have felt SO good the last few weeks. Food has lost its grip on me. My favorite thing about Whole30 is that I could basically eat as much of the "right" foods as I wanted. I didn't have to count calories or containers. I've been sleeping more soundly and my stomach has definitely flattened.
So I wish I had good pictures... and I don't. But my final results are...
-I am down 10ish lbs in the 30 days. I didn't weigh myself right before we started. We had just gotten back from vacation/Bryan's birthday and I knew I would be upset. I weighed myself a week into Whole30 and from that weight I know I have lost 8 lbs. So I am assuming 2-3 lbs or so for that first week is probably accurate. I also lost 2.5 inches off of my waist. I can see a difference in my upper body and in my face too. But seeing a number on the scale that I haven't seen since before I had Hudson is DEFINITELY exciting.
-Bryan lost closer to 15 lbs. I have before pictures for him, so I need to take some afters but he has definitely changed. He stuck to the program about 95% of the time and still got amazing results.
Where am I going from here?
I am reintroducing somethings slowly to see if I can pinpoint what I have issues with and hopping back on 21 day fix. I'm staying away from sugar, dairy and gluten completely. So basically reintroducing Shakeology, Corn (tortillas and chips), maybe rice and beans and Peanut Butter. Besides that... I'm good. I don't miss cheese or dairy at all, I don't miss gluten and I don't really miss (added) sugar. Which means yes, I'll still be drinking my coffee black. I actually like it this way now.
I am taking a month off to add these things back in and see how I feel... and then I am gearing up for Round 2 of Whole30 in mid-September with my best friend.
More than anything I feel like this has become a lifestyle change. I realize how good I feel and I don't WANT to feel bad. I also love that I feel like the weight is really just falling off. Bryan feels the same way. He said he notices an improvement with his acid reflux and anxiety for sure. That's great!
I think for round two I'll be inching my boys (especially Rhett) to a gluten free lifestyle.
I'd love to answer any questions that you have. I have loved the program and I basically stuck to it to a T. It's amazing how great I feel now!!! I'll prob post another update in a week or so after I've tried reintroducing some things and let you know what I think and how I am feeling then!
