    Taylor C. got a reaction from Saritawho? in Starting March 1st   
    Hi all,
    I am starting March 1st which give me eight days to prepare myself, house, and fiance for the pretty dramatic change that is going to be happening. I am excited to be doing this but am also nervous. I have never been able to stick to a diet change and I am ready to say that I have. This is a lifestyle change that I want to get on board with!

    Day 5. 
     
    I have felt pretty good this week. I think today has been the hardest. I had to make cupcakes for the movie night at work and pop fresh popcorn as well. I was huge snacker with an even bigger sweat tooth so the sugar cravings are real. I don't think I have hit the "kill all things" mode but maybe. 
    A victory I have noticed is that I went wedding dress shopping today and I didn't body shame once. I didn't feel bloated and I knew I was eating what I was supposed to and I was able to find confidence in that.

    @JulieP757 I think I have got the meal template almost down! I have eaten whole30 almost five full days now! I can't wait to see the results.
     
    Thanks!

    I am total newbie to the Whole30 program although I have been eating pretty healthy about 70% of the time for several years now.  At one point I lost 90 pounds, but gained back about 30 and have been pretty steady since no matter what I tried to do to lose the last 30 pounds again.  I am a recovered binge eater and just recently started having some digestive issues which is the main reason I am doing the Whole30.  I want to determine what food sensitivities I may have and focus on eating for health and not weight loss anymore.
    I just finished reading the Whole30 book earlier this week and have been cleaning out my kitchen.  Today I am meal planning for the week and will do shopping tomorrow and prep Monday and Tuesdays.  For years I have always done meal planning for the following week on Fridays, food shopping on SAturdays, and meal prep and portioning on Sundays.  Having my meals ready-to-go really helps me to stick to a healthy meal plan.
    My biggest obstacle for the Whole30 is going to be giving up the grains and added sugars.  Plus, I am not much of a veggie eater.  Because I know i will have a hard time eating a lot of 'plain' veggies I ordered some Whole30 approved sauces from : http://www.tessemaes.com/collections/all/whole30-approved
    These should help not only with 'seasoning' veggies and salads but giving me some toppings for my meats instead of having just plain baked/grilled.  I also ordered some Ghee and avocado mayo along with some coconut flour and milk because I have seen a lot of Whole30 recipes that use these ingredients. 
    I figure the more taste I can give to my foods and the more variety of recipes I can make the more likely I am to stick to the program for a full 30 days.
    I will try to check this forum daily for support but am really better with Facebook.  Anyone want to be in a private FB group for the month?  I find that platform easier to use than an online forum like this.
