    Alriiiight! Sleeping better, had the energy to go on a run this morning, and my stuffy nose is completely gone. I have stuck very closely to the whole30 guidelines, although I did weigh myself this morning. I think the dairy-free aspect is making a big difference in my energy levels and weight. My pants fit a lot better than they did 2 weeks ago.

    Today I feel like garbage. I have some kind of allergy thing going on that I've been battling for 4 weeks. It's causing a cough and that cough has my chest(ribs) and throat hurting. I am so tired of coughing. Dr offered to call in an antibiotic for me but I don't know if that's what I need. I think I just need a truckload of sudafed to dry up these nasal passages and stop the post-nasal drip so that I can finally get a break from coughing. It seriously hurts so bad. Laying on my side and stomach last night resulted in protests from the ribs. Throat is raw so even breathing is irritating. Someone told me to pick up some benedryl b/c it'll dry me up faster than Zyrtec or Claritin. I wish it didn't knock me out. I'd be all over the benedryl. Maybe I'll wander down to the PX and get some anyway. I wonder if they have any upstairs in the cafeteria... probably want $100 for it...

    Anyhow, Day 7 went like this:

    B:
    4 sausage links
    2 eggs
    vitamins

    L:
    1 pkg Hormel Natural Choice Nitrate/Nitrite free Mesquite Turkey breast
    grapes

    D:
    BAS with lots of turkey, pico, eggs, multiple veggies
    watermelon, grapes, pineapple
    too many almonds

    Still up a lb. Hoping to change that soon.

    I didn't have to take out a small loan to get some benedryl from the caf, so I took one. Hopefully I can remain conscious. lol Also picked up some Halls b/c my throat is so raw. Sadly, there is soy and sugar in them...

    The Halls was nasty so I spit it out... benedryl is helping with the congestion, but I still feel like crap and now I'm tired...

    There's no logical reason to avoid the scale. It's not going to improve the effect of the program.

    Day 7 went really well until gathering of friends, I had a bit to drink and that led to a slice of pizza that I'm pretty sure is still messing with me today. But back on wagon!
    Happy Friday everyone I love how awesome everyone is doing and the recipe ideas yum!

    Read the site again to see the reason for no weighing and this is what it said:

    One last and final rule. You are not allowed to step on the scale or take any body measurements for the duration of the program. This is about so much more than just weight loss, and to focus on your body composition means you’ll miss out on the most dramatic and lifelong benefits this plan has to offer. So, no weighing yourself, analyzing body fat or taking comparative measurements during your Whole30. (We do encourage you to weigh yourself before and after, however, so you can see one of the more tangible results of your efforts when your program is over.)


    Since I already KNOW the way no sugar, no dairy etc feels, I feel I am safe to check weight loss results. I know this is about getting healthy, but i'm not "testing" the process like it sounds like this is geared toward - non-primal/paleo people "trying" it on for size before committing. I'm already commited. I'm using the Whole30 as a way to boost my already present weight loss (and to kick sugar). For me, it IS about weight loss. So, I'm weighing. Weighing isn't going to derail me and isn't going to cause me to eat garbage b/c I've lost a lb and it's ok. I'm beyond all that because of Primal. I just like to weigh so I can see where I'm at.

    Not trying to be inflammatory here, but there are specific rules about the program that are there for a reason; according to Dallas and Melissa weighing yourself detracts from the benefits of the program. Maybe some people didn't read this website before they started.

    I read the site before I started and just now. Since I'm not doing this to switch from one lifestyle to the next, but rather to help me get away from sugar and boost my weight loss progress, I am going to continue weighing. For me, it won't add or take away from the experience.
