    Dannelle got a reaction from cortadoplease in Starting March 1   
    HI Everyone I am Dannelle, I would love to join this group and share in the journey with you all! In my experience, this doesn't work without a support system! I completed the whole 30 challenge back in February 2017 AND   IT   FELT   AMAZING!!!!  (emphasis on amazing, because seriously you will not believe how good you feel the last week of your journey!)  Not to say it didn't come with challenges and late night cravings because it definitely did. I was fortunate to have a good group of Whole 30 supporters who got me through it! I hope we can all be that to each other this time around!
    Since 2017 I have fallen back into terrible habits, Comfort eating, stress eating, failing to prepare and grabbing the easiest and likely the unhealthiest snack around. I know, it makes NO sense to talk about how Amazing the whole 30 made me feel and then to revert back to bad habits that made me feel frumpy and sluggish. It's like going to the gym or exercising in general. I know I am going to feel better afterward, I know the results are worth it, but I just don't want to LOL but hey, at least I'm being honest with myself. 
    This is going to be my 2nd "SUCCESFUL" whole 30 journey. I have made many attempts to start back up, but for reasons that I cannot logically understand I have not been able to bring myself back to it. Today is Day 3! It was a rash and impulsive start and pretty poor timing on my end if I am being honest ( Which I always am... a little too much :) I too suffer from chronic illness which forced me out of work early 2017. That has come with its own set of challenges and sacrifices. We have had to be inventive with our finances which we have succeeded in doing, but at the moment finances are tight and eating healthy is not cheap. HOWEVER No more excuses for this girl!!!
    Me leaving work and being chronically ill with Lyme's Disease and Fibromyalgia is also what lead me to Whole 30 in the first place. When Medications were barely medicating and physical therapy didn't bring enough relief my doctor suggested going Gluten Free. I started doing some research and found Whole 30, which seemed extreme to my doctor at first, but when he saw results he got on board!  By cutting out all irritants out my diet, my pain was significantly better! By slowly introducing things back into my diet I learned that dairy, wheat and gluten are all big No No's for me! Unfortunately just because I learned it, doesn't mean I stuck with it ….
    I look forward to taking this journey with everyone and making healthy choices STICK!

    Greetings all!
    Something has come up last minute with work and I'll be traveling for most of March 2019. This isn't the best time for me to do a W30. I want to wish everyone good luck, strength, healing and wellness on this journey!

    I've been doing research and planning for about 2 weeks now. I plan on starting March 1st and doing this with my cousin. I have been diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses. All of them stemming from digestive issues. I'm hoping this will help with the chronic pain. If anyone else is starting March 1 I'd love to keep in touch!

    It always seems like when I decide to start my eating program something always comes up to keep me from starting or taking me off. I had a small surgical procedure and my brother comes home saying he has tested positive for influenza A and B last week when I was supposed to start. I mean...COME ON REALLY?!!! Thankfully the procedure went great and I didn’t get the flu. I will be starting with you all on March 1st. I completed the whole 30 in 2013 and have never been able to make it through all the way again. I MUST change my relationship with food. I don’t drink anymore so this is the next task. I am now the heaviest I have ever been which I now have fatty liver. My allergies have turned into or contributed to asthma, I have high blood pressure again. I have high cholesterol as well. My NSV the last time(s) I made it and got to 25 days was I was able to get off allergy and blood pressure medicine. 
    In the upcoming days I am doing a big meat prep. These are what I am planing on making. 
    Turkey Meatloaf from Autoimmune Wellness https://autoimmunewellness.com/nutrisclerosis-meatloaf/, Greek Lamb Skillet from Adventures in Partaking http://adventuresinpartaking.com/2015/07/real-life-recipes-3-greek-lamb-skillet-aip-paleo-whole-30/, 
    Moroccan chicken, Marinated chicken in a brine & Pork breakfast sausage. 
    I have the Day by Day book so I will be doing that with the program.

    Hey @Elizabeth33 and all!
    I really LOVE this. Thanks for sharing your action plan. I also meal prepped. I tend to really bulk batch to 2-3 recipes a week. I made a carrot sweet potato squash curry soup (something like this but omit the peanuts); that goes along with steamed sea bass. Paleo beef chili. Roast chicken and steamed kale with a drizzle of olive oil.
    I posted my goals above but I'll repost now:
    Slay the dragon! Food freedom Body reset Taking set times thru out the day to slow down, calm down, breathe and reset. I am also customizing this W30: I'll be omitting nuts/seeds and eggs. My body doesn't resonate with these. This will be easy as I cut them out about a year ago.
    Can't wait to get going. What else is everyone making?

    *wave* Hello, all
    I just completed my first round this past January. I know, that wasn't long ago! My reintroduction was on a very slow roll and I actually still haven't quite finished reintroducing everything I wanted to test (I was doing specific foods, not just general food groups)... but several foods put my body into such a distressed state that I haven't fully recovered, so I've put the remaining tests on hold. I'll be doing another round of Whole30 starting March 1, so my body has a chance to heal.
    One change this time, though -- last round, I didn't purposefully increase my activity level... this time, I'm adding in daily walking/exercise to keep pushing my metabolism in a positive direction. My goals this round are to gain more physical confidence/grace (I feel very clumsy and heavy most times), eat no fruit later than lunch time (I habitually eat a banana with dinner but after everything else on my plate and it has started to feel like dessert), and lose a little more weight and/or size (I'm happy with either one, since I know I may be gaining muscle).

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Brittany, I’ve done some research and I believe this program is going to be a success! One of my friends tried it and her results were amazing. I’ll be starting March 1 as well. I am looking to correct issues with my skin and just improve my overall health and self discipline. I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you.
    Good Luck!
