  1. I finished my Whole30 yesterday. Awesome job everyone!! I know this is a tough thing but it's totally worth it!! I weighed and measured with my trainer yesterday at the gym but I didn't look at the results yet. I'm trying to stay focused on eating good food and maintaining healthy habits and I don't want how much weight I did/didn't loose to impact that. I'm just WAY to emotional around what the number on the scale says. @Laura of The Great White North thanks for sharing your first reintroduction! Isn't it crazy how your taste buds can change in just 30 days? I've experienced i
  2. Great Job Laura! That is totally a win and an NSV I'd mark in my book! At this stage of Whole 30's in the past I've definitely needed to mix things up. What worked for me was finding one cool (possibly more involved meal) to make each week but then making everything else super simple (think sheet pan meals, or hashes, or instant pot/crock pot meals). Things you can set & forget or even freeze extra servings of if you don't feel like having it 4 days in a row (there's an awesome WH30 meatball recipe that makes pretty much 8 servings - I always freeze half and have the other half with sp
  3. Hey Kara! Just thought I'd share my experience extending a Whole30. I extended my 3rd Whole30 to 45 days. My main motivation was to cement my meal prep and healthy eating habits and really ensure the addictions to sugar/carbs were thoroughly broken. I kept on for another 15 days with no reintroduction. I'm sure there are some Forum answer and I know I've seen a Blog post about it but if you're really looking to see improvement in a preexisting health condition I would advise against re-introduction then doing another 30days. I'd wait to reintroduce when the full 60 is over.
  4. Had a dream last night that I ate bread and drank wine. Was SO relieved when I woke up
  5. Hey All! Sorry I haven't posted in a while! Things have been busy but I'm 100% still on it and still compliant! It's my Day 17 and I actually had to count that up early today cause I'd lost track! I'm noticing that this Whole 30 round (It's my 5th) has been a lot easier. I've been able to quickly recognize cravings, process it, find an alternative, and move on. It's not taking near the conscious effort to resist temptations as it has in the past. I guess I'm trying to say, it get's easier! And it's really resonating with some things Melissa says in the Food Freedom Forever book.
  6. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! @Laura of The Great White North Way to stay strong! If you’re craving something like that try these recipes from Paleomg. I haven’t tried the potato salad but the jalapeño Popper chicken salad is life! I’ve already got it planned for next weekend’s meal prep for lunches. She’s got a lot of good salads and casseroles. Not everything is Whole30 but a lot of it is. @KaraS making healthy meals your fa
  7. @Laura of The Great White North I’m with you and @kirbz my symptoms the first few days are more subtle (I’ve also found during reintroduction that I don’t have strong interactions to any particular food group but I do when I start mixing them together or having things several days in a row). The biggest things I’ve noticed today was some fatigue, mood swings and variable energy. @KaraS great job fighting cravings and getting better in touch with your body. I hope the pain recedes and you’re sleeping through the night soon! I know that’s one of my FAVORITE Whole30 NSVs...awe
  8. Ok you guys, tonight was tough. I have a new foster dog and I came home from work to a whole bunch of things chewed up (including a new pair of expensive shoes) and pee and poop on my bed...yep, on my bed. Needless to say all I wanted to do was order takeout and pour a drink. BUT, I did neither. I stayed strong and make steak, sautéed squash and pan-roasted potatoes instead. It was REALLY hard to resist going to food for comfort when I was stressed and tired and frustrated but I did it! Now to figure out how I can help my foster not be so anxious and not ruin my stuff, lol.
  9. Hey All! I just started my Whole30 yesterday. I hope you don't mind if I join you all on this thread. I've completed 4 Whole30's in the past and an active/supportive Forum group has been really helpful to keep me accountable and focused on my goals. I did my last Whole30 in January and pretty quickly returned to poor eating habits. I just got back from a lot of travel and determined that a mid-year Whole30 reset would be the perfect thing to get me back on track. With every Whole30 I've completed I dramatically improved my health. Each time I learned an enormous amount about
