    4/2/2018 Starting Whole30

    @Let's Dooooo It! I usually do the Whole Sisters mayo and you just dump the light olive oil, mustard, egg etc and blend with immersion blender and it comes out great.

    @Dave K even though I’m not part of your group I’ve been reading some of your comments and it’s great that you all have great enthusiasm. Regarding your dressing issue of not having found one that’s Whole30 approved, try Primal Kitchen dressings or mayo. Whole sisters have a recipe for Ranch dressing which is addictive as well as one for mayo. I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Continuing to Whole90

    @carolw I made it to 91 days and then I ate at the baby shower for my daughter, Jennifer. I had all this food and one slice of cake and champagne punch, etc. I went home and I ate a slice of pizza. The next morning I felt horrible and started right back on the Whole30. I did learn one very important thing, for me, that made a difference. The food did not taste as I had imagined it. Not even the pizza which I was hankering to have before tasted right. So I have decided that I will continue on this journey for a while longer. It wasn’t hard to return to eating the way I had been doing. I realized that I have not missed eating junk food, cake or even wine. I will go this time, perhaps, till next year and then reassess. The baby shower was lovely. I am glad for your weight loss and hope you are better from your cold. I have restarted at Day 1 so now you are definitely ahead of me. Let’s continue to keep in touch and see if we both can achieve food freedom forever.

    Thank you Jim4884. I will definitely try this. I love some of Mel’s recipes and have done quite a few in the past.

    So happy for you carolw!!! I’m on day 58 today. Feeling energetic and joint pain is better. I’m so accustomed to reading labels that it’s just a way of life now. I do still get a pang to have something like pizza or a piece of cake but I have managed to stay firm. I just say to myself that it will still be there after am finished. Continued success to you.

    Continuing to Whole90

    Thank you carolw. I will be at 90 days on April 6th so then I can enjoy my daughter’s shower on the 7th. I know I can do it if I’ve come this far but I also know that I will have to restart again the next day and continue on until I’ve slayed my sugar dragon.

    Continuing to Whole90

    I’m on day 44 today and I just want to say that even though I haven’t lost much weight ( haven’t weighed myself since January 7th) I feel less bloated. My stomach issues are nonexistent and it seems to have gone down. But my biggest accomplishment has been that I’m off diabetic medication. I was on Metformin 1000mg 2x/day and my HgA1C has drastically decreased so my PMD has told me to stop taking it. I feel good. Not so much pain in my joints but the weather here in NJ has been rough so I’ve been taking Tylenol on occasion. I still have food urges. My granddaughter’s birthday was Saturday and they ordered pizza and that with cake (sweets are my downfall) was almost unbearable. I remained strong. I ate before going to party and I just drank water there. I’m planning on continuing on to April 7th ( my daughter’s first baby shower) and then will restart again for maybe a month or two then start re-introduction. I’m planning on having some broiled ir baked fish with plenty of salad so I don’t overdo it. I wish everyone who also has decided to extend much success.

    Continuing to Whole90

    I’ve finished five Whole30’s in total, not consecutively. The last one I completed before this one was two years ago and I went to sixty three days. I started getting into bad habits and along the way developed DM type 2 and a whole lot of weight also. So i started the fifth one on January 7th and want to continue to possibly Whole90.

    @DAMeek I hope you’re feeling better. Gee I don’t know what happened to the other post I addressed to you. Oh well!! Whatever. Unfortunately, I’ve also come down with a cold but I’m marchimg on and continuing ahead. It’s day 26 for me and I do feel good minus the sniffling/coughing. It’ll be nice to have someone else along for the ride. Anyone else continuing??

    Hi everyone. How are you all doing? I’m feeling pretty good and looking on to continue past the 30 days. Who else is continuing on?
  13. @Jessmcdermott SugarcubeOD is right. I did that on one of my previous Whole30’s and I felt miserable for two weeks. I had horrible headaches, felt antsy, nauseous etc. Try to avoid it.

    Hi everyone, day 16 today and I think I might be in Tiger Blood status. I woke up this morning energetic, full of bounce and cleared brain fog. It feels wonderful!!!!! I hope everyone is doing great.
