I feel good. I'm not sure about the reported tiger blood yet, but maybe a fast kitty cat.
So, there's that.
My cravings are gone. #miraculous
People are sort of noticing less puffiness.
I disobeyed. The #Whole30 Powers That Be tell you NOT to weigh yourself. NOT to measure yourself. Especially NOT on the days labeled For the love of Gosling, my pants are tighter.
I did it. Cringe. I stepped on the scale. Because surely, surely I've lost 10 pounds by day 9. Surely not putting sugar near my face and swearing off the world of all things processed has resulted in lower numbers.
My heart sank. My mood shifted. I rolled my eyes and may have slammed something down on the counter top. Then, I . . . DID NOT pray, DID NOT read scripture, DID NOT count backward from 10, DID NOT dial a friend for emotional support.
I was just irrationally irritated. First at the scale. Then at myself.
For real, y'all.
The power of that stupid number derails me every time. Thank goodness I had enough moxie to stay on plan and punch the desire to quit square in the face. But still.
I'm not even a fan of math and science, which is what weight is all about BTW. Yet, Argggghhhh!
And that, my friends, is why they tell you NOT to do this. It's not about the number. #Whole30 realizes most people have an unhealthy relationship with food, but oftentimes, the scale. Therefore, focus on the why behind the what and not the numbers.
Not. the. numbers.
I'm confessing, leaving it right here, and will not do it the remainder of these 30 days.
Now, I'm going for a sanity walk.
