I love/hate Whole 30

Weight is coming off. I love it. I'm so thankful. I weigh myself & see the number dropping and I could tear up because I normally will take a calendar & write "-2" at the end of every week to see where I could be at by X date. I always look back at the calendar depressed & angry at myself because I didn't lose anything. 

Not this time. :)  Yes it's hard. Holy moly it's hard. But here's the awesome part: LIVE LIKE NO ONE ELSE NOW, SO LATER I CAN LIVE LIKE NO ONE ELSE. 

Okay I stole that from Dave Ramsey but still it's my new motto, & it's getting me through. Because LISTEN! Weight is coming off so quickly, AND more importantly I'm detoxing my poor body & healing it. So if I can buckle down & LIVE LIKE NO ONE ELSE right now, later in life I will 1: be at my dream weight & 2: be able to enjoy yummy foods OCCASIONALY & not have health issues.

Im on day 17!! I have been getting really really bored with food (the hate part) and I don't even look forward to eating right now. I'm about to go grocery shopping so I'm gonna spice it up a bit.  I can't tell you how many cupcakes and cakes, and tarts, and chips and dips I've passed up these last 2.5 weeks! It's like I'm being tested.... But alas I did it because I want to live a healthy vibrant life at my goal weight. 

Being out of town last weekend was difficult but I didn't detour. (Ok I had a tiny bit of heavy cream in coffe but that's it!) 

Oh.....I didn't do Wharf to Wharf. My very first did not start. I know! I just really didn't want to get up at 5:30am, get all the kids in the car, wait in traffic, wait for Porta potty, wait to start walking, make my family wait 2 hours, then drive home.  So I decided to stay and visit family. I'm glad I did.

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited, happy, clapping for you. Whole30 is where I'm headed. I have to give myself *lots* of transitional space; I even break down baby steps in to microbaby steps. But big picture, I'm aiming to a whole30 lifestyle.

You're post today is so encouraging.
