    This is the next journey by a crew of "seasoned" Whole 30 participants that have been doing this for awhile. But don't head for the exits yet! We love having new members join our group. We have fun, recipes, offer encouragement, and bring everyone along and "never leave a man (or woman) behind! Feel free to join in and offer help where you can or ask questions that the group will happily answer. We don't allow bullies in the group and will un you off if you try. This group will start on Columbus day so make sure you do your shopping ahead of time and get ready to improve your health.....mind, body, and soul!

    All - good morning and welcome (for most) to day 1! We have 30 easy days ahead of us. Be strong, confident, and lose the self-defeating attitude. If you have been cheating in the past...STOP! It's time to make a choice. Are you in this to better yourself or do you need to find the door now? I believe in you and will help pull you thru to the end.
     
    Everyone should have the weigh-ins, measurements, and before pics out of the way. Get rid of the scale for the next 30 days. NO CHEATING! Most of you will feel a difference in your clothes or the way you feel in the next couple of weeks. Just be confident that the weight is coming off and don't rely on sneaking a peak with the scale.
     
    Eat well today, do NOT starve yourself, plenty of water and protein. Have fun, try new things, BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF!
     
    I will be out the rest of the day to attend a funeral but will be back tomorrow.

    All - we are here! Our 30 day journey is complete. Please measure/weigh yourself and post your results/successes if you would like. I am happy to report that I lost 3 pounds.........it doesn't seem like a lot, but to me it is a success. I am a very energetic person and I have been slowed severely since the spine surgery. My biggest fear was that I was going to start gaining weight during the recovery. It has been over two months since the surgery and I am feeling about 95%......and 3 pounds lighter.......success! I plan on continuing on with this way of eating and work towards my ideal goal weight which is still a ways down the road........slow and steady.........eating that elephant......one bite at a time. I am proud of each and every one of you for sticking with the program, offering up advice or recipes to the group, believing in yourself, and taking the time to do something goof for YOU! I hope you have a cleaner diet (and house) after these eeeaaasssyyyyy 30 days!
     
    Happy Veterans Day everyone!

    All - make sure to weigh and measure yourself tomorrow (if you want) and post any positive results. Don't be discouraged at any expectations you might have made for yourself in case you didn't meet them. The goal is to realize that "it was only 30 days" which followed a lifetime of unhealthy eating. Now that you have the tools, you can continue on. Happy Veterans Day early and Happy Birthday to the "Devil Dawgs" (the US Marines!

    KSbyer - glad you are feeling welcome here. We are all friends, helping each other along as we need it. A little bit of encouragement goes along way. The chores were an idea I threw in sometime last year and people seemed to like it so I stuck with it. It was a way for me to stay active and keep my mind off of thoughts of snacks and to whip my house into shape.
     
    For this group, if my math is correct, tomorrow (Tuesday) is our final day which means the scales can come out on Wednesday. Lets all finish strong.

    Hello everyone. A quick post before I go canoe the lake and get some exercise out of the way early. Been a whirlwind weekend with way too much driving, traffic, and bad weather. But the sun is out today and time to have some fun.
     
    Chores: go thru the closets, garage, or other storage area and tidy, clean, straighten, or throw away.
     
    Have a great day.

    All, I'm spending tomorrow with my middle son as we check out a possible future college for him next year. I need an hour of exercise from you, break it up if you have to. Tomorrows chores: floors! Wash them, vacuum, was them, sweep them, carpet them, replace them......make them like new.
