  1. August 12 start date

    Hi. Yes, I started on August 12, also. I'm thinking about how to break a bad habit: I read (somewhere on the Whole30 site) that cravings only last 3 to 5 minutes, so theoretically if you go to another room and do something else for 3 to 5 minutes, the urge to do the bad habit will pass? We are on day 4, and I think this will be very relevant for us today. Let me know how it goes and good luck!
  2. Overcame so many challenges but I made it!

    Great job! Thanks for sharing. I, too, wonder if I can really do this, and I hope that, if I do, it will help my chronic migraines, as it helped your arthritis. I hope so. Thanks for the inspiration.
  3. It's tomorrow and, what do you know? I am starting. This would be Day Zero I guess. I read and planned and shopped and now I I am ready for go-time tomorrow. I signed up (and paid) for the Whole 30 daily newsletter and I expected to get one today, but I didn't. Not sure what to think about that....
  4. Well, I think the Title and Tags say it all but, at the risk of being redundant, I find myself at the kitchen table, once again trying to determine a strategy to get this old bod back into bikini shape. HAHAHA. Not really. Just fitting back into my jeans would be a start, though; looking good in my riding pants would be amazing. I've done the Whole 30 once before, for 42 days actually, and I remember that I thought it was great at the time. I was never able to repeat or maintain that level of commitment and eventually gave up. I'm not sure I'll be able to this time either but I do know that I can probably do it for 30 (or maybe even 42) days. If anybody else finds themselves in similar circumstances to me and wants to start tomorrow or thereabouts, join me! They say Misery loves company, but I find that Happiness can't live without it. And I'm wondering if I could do better on this program with an online friend or two?
