    The crazy things people say

    Co-worker who started Whole30 a couple days after me was describing it to another co-worker. I wasn't really part of the conversation. Her: (turning to me) The 30 stands for 30 days, right? Me: Yes. Her: (turning back to him) So it's like a cleanse, kind of. Him: Yeah, but she's probably doing it as a diet. (meaning me) Thinking to myself, but not looking up: Yes, I'm overweight. But, no. I'm not doing it as a weight-loss diet. I'm trying to identify my food sensitivities, and weight loss will probably happen. And dude, I'm right HERE.
  2. I'm on day 3 of my first Whole30, and have been a lurker on this forum until now. But today, after reading https://whole30.com/2012/04/sometimes-it-is-hard/ I was motivated to actually sign up to post something. My message? A simple THANK YOU. I needed to read this article. Specifically, I needed to read, "If eating the same healthy foods every day makes things easier, do it." Because this can all be very overwhelming. I struggle with finding a variety of foods that I want to eat, and have fallen back on fruit & almond butter for snacks and breakfasts when nothing else appeals. I know it's only day 3, and folks keep telling me it will be easier. And I believe them. So, I'm going to be a little easier on myself on this particular crutch, if it keeps me on this diet.
