    Planning to start September 1. Are you?

    Hi There This is my second attempt this year. I have completed two in the past. My son is doing the Keto and lost 50 lbs and has motivated me get started. He is willing to do the whole 30 with me, and with my daughter at college I can keep and whole 30 compliant house! I am 55, have about 20 lb to lose (any would be good). I am going through menopause and nothing else has worked. I have a bunch of minor issues including high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I am due to get my blood work done in the next week or two so it will be interesting to see where I am. Mostly I want to feel better. This is the first year I have felt pain. I look forward to all the encouragement. Carol

  3. I am starting today and would love the support of a group. I am already wanting to cheat. I feel like i battle the way through my day and deserve something carbish or a glass of wine. I used to be able to get away with a lot but now that I am hitting perimenopause I cant lose the belly. I also have less energy and struggle to make it to the gym. I had done this (the whole 30) a few times a few years back and nothing else has worked so I either need to make better choices or be okay with the added weight, achy body etc. How are you all making out this week?

    Starting July 1 - Anyone want to join me?

    Hi, I am rejoining and starting today. I have done this several times in the past, and only finished once. I have been playing around with other diets and have been unable to commit. What I have accomplished is cleaning out my house of any sugars, breads etc. My motivation this time is that my son wants to do a strict Keto. I do not do well on Dairy but thought this would be a nice compromise. I will just add cheese to his portions. He lost 50 lbs and then gained back 20. I have put on the standard peri menopause 20 in the last year, went up a size and turned 55. I am tired, weak and sore. I did start exercising again and have started ballroom dance lessons to add some fun to my life. Now I just need to lose the belly. :) I would love some support!
