    Alright, so, after a few days of frustration, and one more day of bad eating, I've decided to start a Whole30.

    3 meals a day and dropping dairy in addition to everything else I've cut out, and no more weighing for the rest of the month.

    I don't know what in the hell went wrong, but as of this morning I weighed 314.6. Which just makes no sense. I mean, day before yesterday (yesterday being a day of pizza), I was 312.8, but still. For almost a week, my weight just bounced up and down, which really doesn't seem possible, and isn't like anything I've ever experienced before when dieting. I never plateau in week two or three!

    Only thing I can figure is that the fasting just seriously was not working for me, and despite eating sub-2000 calories a day, my body was just laughing at me and storing it all away. Even though I somehow wasn't low on energy or anything.

    I don't know. I'm seriously confused.

    Anyway, the plan is to just go ahead and jump into the Whole30 and see what happens. 3 meals a day, no dairy, no weighing.

    And, try and teach myself to like vegetables. That's probably going to be the hardest part, ha.

    Sounds like a great plan at this stage, especially the no weighing. Maybe give IF a go after the Whole30, once you're body is ready again.

    So, yesterday, Day 1 went pretty well.

    3-egg Scramble + Mushrooms, Asparagus + few slices of avocado on the side for breakfast.
    Big spring mix salad + chicken and avocado, topped with a delicious Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette that I made for lunch.
    Sirloin Steak + half a sweet potato with a tiiiiny bit of roasted cauliflower on the side (it wasn't ready in time for dinner, and I was stuffed by the time I was done).

    I did weigh myself this morning, which was I mistake, ha. I really just sort of wanted an actual starting point, since the two days prior had been bad. Unfortunately I went up another 2 pounds to 317. Buuut I'm not going to let myself freak out. I'm eating healthy, and once my body gets used to the 3 meals a day again, hopefully it'll all get better.

    Was checking out Nerd Fitness last night too. I wish the books weren't so expensive, because there are some pretty amazing success stories over there. But, not up for spending $80 on books when I can just spend some time doing research.
