    KayLynn got a reaction from MizRik in Let's Support Each Other — doing a January Whole30   
    Hello, my name is Kayla and this will be my first Whole30 experiment/experience. My start date is January 3rd.  
    I used to be a nutrition and CrossFit coach at my own gym, and felt the healthiest I had ever felt in my life.  I had to close my gym due to being diagnosed with cancer and then going through a nasty divorce.  In order to support myself and my daughters, I took an office job (which I do love) that aligned with my degree. Fast forward 6 years, and I have never weighed as much as I do now in my entire 36 years.  Not to mention how terrible I feel inside and emotionally.  I’m slowly finding who I am after a long terrible marriage and I’m finally ready to take care of me so I can take better care of my girls and be more present and happy.  
    I stopped drinking alcohol 4 months ago, coffee one month ago and now I want to tackle the unhealthy foods that exacerbate my cravings and poor eating habits.  I’ve been preparing for the past 2 weeks to make sure I have meals planned and proper ingredients and even bought the Whole30, Day by Day book, I highly recommend it.  The Real Plans app is also amazing.  I’m looking forward to finding what foods are not my friends and just feeling all around better.

    Hi there. What if a group of us introduced ourselves in this forum topic, and checked back to support each other throughout the month?
    I signed up to do the January 2022 Whole30 on the website. The email from Melissa informs me that this officially starts January 3. I also have a couple of friends in my local town who are going for it.
    How about you? Are you doing a January 3 or a January 1 start date? Have you tried Whole30 before?
    It would be great if you could answer using complete sentences, and without a lot of Internet  or Whole30 abbreviations, which can get confusing...
