My Whole30 Results Are Incredible!

Wow!  I can’t believe how fast time has gone by.  Round one of my Whole30 Experience is complete and my Whole30 results are incredible!

Non- Scale Victories

Before I even get to my measurement and weight,  I have to share my non-scale victories.  There have been so many over the past month, I almost don’t know where to start and I am probably leaving a few out.  So let’s start with….

  • Sleeping better and waking up remembering my dreams for the first time in 17 years
  • Feeling lighter and more comfortable in my body
  • Gained mental clarity and much better memory
  • Completely sleighed the sugar dragon – no sugar cravings whatsoever
  • Less bloat
  • Clothes fit better – tossed two pairs of pants and one shirt
  • Kids are eating healthier than they ever have
  • Flatter stomach
  • No PMS and much easier menstrual cycle
  • Practicing mindful eating for the first time in my life
  • Haven’t experienced acid reflux symptoms
  • Happier
  • No migraines
  • Handle stress better
  • Thoughts are more organized
  • Eliminated carb cravings
  • Healthiest I’ve eaten in my entire life
  • Better workouts and accomplished my personal bests in yoga and at barre class
  • Quicker recovery from workouts
  • Compliments abounded from friends and family
  • Eating Whole30 foods went from being a challenge to a practice, and turned into an easy comfortable habit
  • And…….this one is huge for me.  Less reliant on the scale



Inches Lost

I made a big mistake and didn’t measure before starting the Whole30 – ugh. I highly recommend anyone starting the Whole30 to measure before because you will be amazed at how your body composition changes.  Luckily, I realized my chiropractor’s office had measured me right before I started and was able to get the measurements.  I lost 12 inches in one month – the length of a ruler!

Weight Lost

Would you believe me if I told you I wasn’t even that excited to weigh myself? It might be because I was feeling so great with all of my non- scale victories in tow or because I was so happy to have lost twelve inches, but It just didn’t seem like a big deal.  I lost five pounds.



For a minute I compared myself to other Whole30ers who reported much more weight loss.  Then,  I looked back at myfitnesspal and I could clearly see that I have averaged a weight loss of 4 pounds a month over the past six months of the weight loss clinic’s high protein low carb diet.  Knowing my metabolism runs on the slow side because of all the factors I told you about in How I Gained Over 100 Pounds and My Best Advice To You ,I decided to celebrate the 5 pound weight loss since its 1 pound more than my average and I feel great!

I had a great experience with my Whole30 practice and think it’s something everyone should try at least once.  We have a fantastic Facebook group of Whole30ers who are supporting each other and would love to have you if you are interested.
