    @kjmc hang in there!  I usually give up beer for Lent and that's hard enough, but I'm right there with you giving up everything else too.  But it's worth it.  I'm 2 years away from 50 and carrying too much weight and too many bad habits.  I want to live to see grandkids, and my DS is only 16.
    Yesterday was a success, even faced with a really tough mac n cheese challenge.  DS doesn't like fish, so I made him mac n cheese for supper.  It was TOUGH but I didn't even lick the spoon.  And what he didn't finish went right into the trash.

     
    Today is going well also.

    @kirstenmichelle thanks.  I'm not averse to leftovers for breakfast, but my breakfast is usually eaten on the go, which is why a Larabar with a piece of fruit is perfect.  I'm up and out the door by 6AM, so I don't have time for a lot of AM prep or even really time to have a sit down breakfast.  I always have a snack at work around 9 and have lunch at 11, so today snack was apple slices with the almond butter, and I found myself sated enough to push lunch off until 11:30.
     
    Since today is a fast day for Lent, I'm trying to eat small and will have a nice big piece of cod for supper

    Hi everyone, I am starting Whole30 today as well... I did my first Whole 30 last June with no cheats or slips!  Our house was on the market, but not selling.  The day I started Whole30 we got an offer!  So I got through selling the house, looking for and buying a new house, negotiating both contracts and scheduling a co-ordinated move without a drop of wine or chocolate.  However, we moved on July 12, and once the kitchen was packed up, and then unpacked in a different kitchen, all the habits I learned disappeared.  I need to restart the whole thing and this is the first month I think I have enough "space" to do it since moving.  I am looking forward to building on what I learned last summer and continuing this journey.

    Hello all, another Whole30 newbie trying this for Lent!  I hope the board participation doesn't die off because of the FB group, though.  I don't do FB.
     
    My biggest problem is going to be breakfasts since I hate eggs  but I did find a sausage recipe that I'm going to try making tonight.
