  1. So I started my Whole30 journey today and already messed up! Grr! A couple of girlfriends asked me to lunch at work today and I said, sure, as long as we go to Pei Wei or Chipotle, where I've read you can find compliant menu items. (BTW - I had packed a lunch already, but I never miss a chance to catch up with these two fun ladies!) So we went to Pei Wei and I ordered from the gluten free menu. I ordered Spicy Pei Wei chicken, which had lots of veggies and "Pei Wei spicy sauce." Like a true Whole30 rookie, I started eating the dish only to taste the very sweet sauce. I asked an employee what was in the sauce and she told me "sugar and vinegar." Then she proceeded to rattle off all the sauces that have sugar in them. Like everything basically. So, I'm bummed I made a dumb mistake on Day 1. And I'm bummed that I'm starting over ALREADY! I want to be able to enjoy an occasional lunch out with friends. If you've done this successfully and eaten more than just steak and plain baked potato, I'd love to hear from you.

    Start Date- July 23

    My mistake! I was looking for a group starting at the same time as me, and I saw there were 2 starting virtually the same day. Wasn't sure which one would be more active. Thanks for the reminder about the posts. This is all new to me!

    Starting July 24!

    Hey guys! I'll join your group. I'm starting on Monday, July 24. I work full time and have three school aged children. Thankfully I have a supportive hubby, but he is not doing Whole30 with me. I can't throw out all the snacks my kids eat so I am hoping I won't be too tempted. Ugh. This is real life, after all! Thanks for starting a new group. Oh, and my reason for doing Whole30? One, to see if I can! Two, to see if I can kick my sugar cravings. Three, to try and get rid of my love handles (caused by sugar cravings). Going to need your help to make it through! Good luck to us all!
