This morning I faced the scale. Over the course of these Whole30 days, I lost a grand total of 15.8 lbs. In ONE month. Pretty damn good, if I do say so myself, and even a bit more than I had hoped. How often does THAT happen when you step on the scale?
I’ll admit I am/was a bit of a scale addict. As in, it was the first thing I did each morning, and it set the tone for my day. NOT being “allowed” to weigh in each morning has been rather freeing. Going forward, I think we will keep the scale out of the bathroom, check it only weekly or so, and certainly not let it set the tone for my day.
I’m still considering how and where I’ll go next. However, this is a holiday weekend; July 4th. It’s ALSO my birthday weekend. And I’ve been celebrating. Today (Independence Day) included family and friends and gluten-free pizza, Mike’s Hard Lemonade (x3), potato chips, and a little ice cream. Tomorrow (my birthday) will include fajitas and margaritas and frozen custard (hello Abbott’s). This weekend I plan to see how certain foods make me feel and decide if and/or how they’ll be added back. But after that, I think I’ll return to the paleo diet. Perhaps not quite as strictly as I did during my Whole30, but close.
Happy July 4th! 🇺🇸
