    Hi Everyone,
    Hubby and I are starting our second whole30 tomorrow (March 2nd).  We did one in the beginning of 2014.  We loved the results and have changed a lot of our habits since then.  However, some joint issues still linger, so we are going to try another one to see if it helps.
    The first whole 30 we did was 'hard' for me because I was a  big sugar addict.  It took almost two weeks in the whole 30 until I started feeling better.  I had a dull headache, felt lousy and had tons of cravings.  By the end of the month, giving up that sugar made such a big difference in my energy level etc, that I've mostly stayed away from my bad habits since then (ie. no m&ms for lunch, no oreos as an afternoon 'pick me up' etc.)  I was apprehensive about the program the first time.  But this time I'm looking forward to it due to the results I got the first time.
    It really helps that both of us are doing it and we like to cook.  It helps having someone nearby to keep you honest and share the cooking tasks.  We worked on our weekly menu this morning.  And I started a batch of the silky ginger soup from the Well Fed 2 cookbook.
    Anyways, I just wanted to say Hi and am looking forward to catching up with other forum topics.
