    Newbie, starting Sept 3!

    Day 3 done. Crankies took over and I didn't plan enough time to make my Real Plans chicken chili. But there were enough leftovers that I was able to make a big salad with lots of protein and avocado. I will make chili tomorrow. I had all the day 3 symptoms: headache, cranky, etc. But I did go to the gym. Hope you are all doing well with your plans and enjoying the journey. Enjoy is of course a relative term.

    I signed up for Real Plans. Tonight's chicken dinner was excellent. I was supposed to have made a quiche this morning but it didn't get done. Veggie scramble instead. I'll make it tomorrow. The thing I like about the Real Plans is their timeline. It tells you what to prep, what to take out of the freezer, etc. On to day 2.

    Hi, I'm starting Monday, too. I'm a teacher and it's the first week of school! I'm actually retired, but still substitute in the classroom and have private music students at home. Nice to see other 60+ year-young women here to start the future!

    Adjusting to no alcohol

    Hi Snowday, I am starting my 3rd W30 on Monday. I am also at close to my heaviest since my 1st W30 in 2014. I gained all the weight I lost back and fell into old eating habits (snack all day instead of sitting down for meals) as well as old drinking habits. I switched to vodka spritzers, too, and white wine spritzers. My husband is a beeraholic and probably drinks 6-8 beers a night - and these are the strong craft beers. This morning hubby was heading off to work and not happy about it. He said he was tired. I told him that he can't get a good night's sleep passed out in front of the TV, and why didn't he come to bed last night? So I asked him if he wanted to quit drinking with me for 30 days. He said that he might do that. Crossing my fingers!
