Alright guys, the verdict is in! I weighed myself, took my measurements, and took photos yesterday. I was honestly expecting a little more weight loss and inches lost, but am still happy with the results and can’t wait for the next Whole30 Challenge!

Weight

I started off at 155.2lbs and ended up at 149.2! I ended up seeing the 140s after all!

Measurements (before, after)

  • Arm (left) – 13″, 12.5″
  • Arm (right) – 13″, 13″
  • Bust – 36.25″, 35.75″
  • Waist – 29″, 28.25″
  • Hips – 36.25″, 35.5″
  • Bum – 38″, 38″ (phew!)
  • Thigh (right) – 24.5″, 24.5″
  • Thigh (left) – 24″, 24″

I saw most changes in my mid-section which is fine by me.

Photo Evidence

Ugh, I hate posting photos, especially where I look bad, but I noticed a lot of progress that I’m proud of and want to encourage you guys to try the Whole30, so here you go. If you can’t tell, before photos are on the left, after photos on the right.

Whole30: Day 30

Well, guys. I made it. I made it to day 30 and am absolutely baffled. I truly thought I would fail and give up less than a week in, but I stuck it out.

Obviously I didn’t blog last week which I’m a little bummed about, but shit got real busy and I just had no energy left at the end of the day. I honestly struggled to stay on track the last week due to the stress of being so busy. Stress is my main trigger and all I want to do is eat. I did end up snacking a little more than I should’ve some days, but at least they were still Whole30 friendly foods.

I’m going to take a week to de-load, maybe enjoy a couple treats, and then jump right into my second Whole30.

As for results, I’m not sure yet, I need to take my pics and measurements tomorrow morning. I’ve been weighing myself periodically throughout and have dropped 5lbs. I’d really like to see the 140s and after dropping those 5lbs the first week, I sat at 150.2 for the remainder of the time. My body was just trying to fucking torment me. Well, it didn’t work! However, I do hope to see the scale budge some during the next go, but it’s by no means my only measurement system. My jeans are fitting much looser and I actually fit into a size 4 the other day although it was pretty snug. Still! I don’t know if I’ve ever fit into a size 4! Oh, and I just PR’d my back squat and front squat, but that could be because I did the Wendler program too. Not to mention I just feel all around better; happier, less mood swings, less tired, more energy, lighter… so yeah.

Be back tomorrow with my progress!
