    Little Kirbo Yes, you will fit back into that dress!! I think its a great goal!! Trez, i know i have had dreams like that too and woke up feel guilty even though it was just a dream. Mine was also about ice cream Its been a crazy day....im a paramedic and we have been running 911 calls all day. Our meals have been ay crazy times.....Its the only time i allow myself to snack between meals is at work out of necessity....usually nuts, dates, homemade beef jerky. We are finally getting dinner & lunch was over 7 hours ago. Can be a challenge but on day 26 & determined to make it work!! Everybody keep up the good work!!! Gin

    Welcome Trez your story is inspiring and way to keep up the great work!! I work out as well mostly cross fit or interval training, I have been wanting to try kettle bells myself they sound fun. I didnt really have any cravings until the last couple days and its been ice cream!! I have NOT given in though. Going all the way to Whole 100!!!!!!! Gin

    Fransois, From what i undestand about Crio Bru is that the theobromine is a naturally occuring substance in the ground cocoa beans. It is supposed to help with alertness. I like your " cheesy" quotes they are entertaining. Gin

    Zoodles, That sounds tough! Last week i had a frustrating time cause my kids were all eating Halloween treats, i went to a conference at work and i had brought my own lunch because i knew chances are that the linch that would be provided would NOT be W30 compliant & it wasnt....but seeing everyone else was eating the fancy gourmet lunch that was provided, was annoting!......then the police who we work with at work had given all the guys at the station a huge bag of Halloween candy and they were eating it in front of me... yikes!! I felt like this lonely person in a world of forbidden foods! I did get through it successfully but had a melt down of frustration at one point even though people weren't doing this purposely but it felt like it was being shoved in my face. I agree with Francsois getting a handle on the sleep. You may be right that it is cause you were hungry. I agree that do what you need to do even if it is snacking between meals on healthy on w30 approved foods. I find i have to do this at work cause often times we are so busy meals get delayed. I found homemade beef jerky is great & i made my own Lara type bars super easy just throw a handle full of dates, nuts in a food processor and in a couple minutes you have your own. I roll them into little balls and roll them in organic unsweetened raw coconut...yummy. I reserve them mostly for work emergencies when meals are delayed. I also find stretching before bed can help with getting to sleep. Francsois how is the no coffee drinking going? Im not a coffee drinker but like my tea. I was wondering if you have ever heard of Crio Bru or organic ground coca beans instead? I have fallen in love with this drink. It can be brewed like coffee and has tons of antioxidants and theobromine which is great for you and acts similar to caffeine but without the jitters. Maybe they have something similar to it in Australia. I hope its going well for you. We are going to this and it will be an awesome journey with all of you!! Gin

    I would love to introduce myself. I live in the USA and I am also a fulltime Paramedic in a busy city and work crazy shift hours. Im married and have 4 great kids. I went gluten free several years ago after having several health issues for the previous 18 years & wasnt able to find a doctor who could explain them lots of debilitating joint pain, skin rashes, iritis etc. After many hospitalizations, medications & doctors I finally found the right doctor who discovered it was related to a gluten intolerance. I went gluten free & My heatlh improved dramatically and i went from 78kg down to 54kg. I was in my best shape i had been in many years & went off all my medications. I was able to become the mom i always wanted to be and get my firefighting certification & go to paramedic school which was a lifelong dream!!! However I still was having some intermitent issues. Recently My brother & mom decided to do W30 & im 18 days into it & already seeing huge improvements no more joint pain, clearer skin, mood has improved so has sleep & energy. Im motivated & want to stick with it!! I like the idea of a whole100 especially doing it with other people like yourselves. Thats awesome a couple of you are from Australia i have wanted to go thete since i was 12 years old. Im excited to be aboard with all of you! Gin
