Yay, week three of Whole30 and I'm doing really well. I am over the cravings and the initial feeling of exhaustion when you overhaul your eating, is gone. I feel really good and my belly is getting flatter.
I honestly don't know how much weight I've lost. I stopped weighing myself a long time ago and am just going by how I look and feel. Sometimes I'll try on a piece of clothing that couldn't fit to get a sense of my progress.
There are some jeans in my closet that are a bit snug in the waist. At the end of the Whole30 I'll try them on again and if they fit comfortably then I'll know I was successful because they couldn't even get them past my knees the first time I audaciously tried them on in the store.
The second time on a whim I decided to try them when I revisited the store and they totally went up and I could actually button them.
Of course I had to get them and they're my "skinny" pants. Haven't worn them once but I will. Just need to keep myself on track and continue to focus on my goals.
Here are some of my meals for the past week, hope something inspires you. Feel free to reach out to me if there are any recipes you'd like.
