    First Whole30 Starting July 2nd

    Hi! My name is Hope and I am trying out my firat Whole30. Yes I am starting on the 2nd and not the first! This was done on purpose because of vacation. I have had digestive issues since the birth of my daughter 10 mo this ago. Since the doctors cant seem to tell me what is wrong, I am hoping the Whole30 will give me some answers!

    congratulations, everyone! thanks for the support, and the recipes, I really appreciate it. as much as I want to weigh myself, I don't own a scale, so I have to wait until Monday and pop into my doc's office. that way, I'll have my starting weight (from my last visit) and my ending weight done on the same scale, and I can ask them if they'll consider redoing my bloodwork, so we can see if I managed to affect any other changes, as well. hope to see you around on the other forums, or here, or somewhere else - I am so happy we've been here for each other!

    Although the day is not over yet, I did my last June workout and had the satisfaction of watching that third ring close for the last time this month making the thirty day streak perfect. I then came upstairs and found my neighbors setting off fireworks. No doubt in celebration for me?!? (or, oh wait, I guess there is that one certain holiday coming up...still made me giggle!) Hurrah to all of you...picture me tossing confetti in your general directions!

    I'm proud of everyone who hit 30 days today. I'd love to hear more about your final thoughts, day 31 reflections, reintro experiences, etc. I'll add mine as well. I ran into a friend today who's done Whole30 twice, and her advice was to take reintro slow, like focus on one food group for a week at a time. And with sugar start very slow, like with honey, etc. I think I'll try to take her advice on that!

    I agree @Crimsann it has been really helpful to have us all go through the month together on this forum. I hope you all got out of it what you hoped! I definitely have less sugar cravings, but fear 30 days has not been long enough to tame my sugar dragon. I’m going to try and eek out a few more weeks of being sugar free and see how it goes from there. Definitely like @crimsann said, I hope we can all keep checking in over the next month or so to know how everyone is doing!

    @AmandaRG ooh thanks for the recipe tip, I’ve seen a couple Chow Mein recipes and always sort of hesitated because I don’t always like the “real versions”. At the same time I have always suspected that I would like a more all natural one. And this is a perfect time to start stretching my meal plan beyond mostly tried and true faves. Ive been thinking about found some Salisbury Steak Meatballs and Mashed Potato (mashed with coconut milk) for lunches next week but I’ve been flailing around about dinners and that might be just the inspo I needed. Especially since I can cram that full of veggies while my lunch is more protein/fat dense. On our last day I just want to say this has been such a steady group and I’ve really enjoyed doing this with you. I’m going to miss reading up on all of you so for those not going into July, drop in and say hi and I hope you get the most out of your reintroduction time. For those of you facing/looking forward to a Day 31 weigh in, I have one last trick to pass on that’s always helped me do a real check on progress without letting one single number make or break me. I always set out to check in on myself by planning to deliberately weigh myself about four times spread over two days. Then I go with the average. I’ve always found it fascinating to see how much it does swing from morning to night or day to day and the first time I did this it helped more than anything to break the hold that number had on me. Or, of course, after all the work this month feel free to go with the lowest number too, lol! Personally I had found I always seem to weigh the least on Monday morning and it’s left me nearly convinced that two days away from work lightens me in some real non-food related way. Does stress actually add pounds?! Maybe so.

    So do I! I’m also feeling quite tired but i know how the process works and I’ll overcome it. I have an order from primal kitchen on its way and I’m really excited about it because that means mayo!! Haha

    Welcome!! I am on my third day and definitely have the "lack of sugar" headache going on. I did stock up on some Whole30 goodies (the TIO gazpacho soup is delicious!)
