    No snow here but lots of rain. I think I'll make some soup and mayo and plan menus for the next week. Day 7 for me ( started on the 1st). Pants are feeling a bit looser and my energy is pretty good however, I made the mistake of trying on clothes at Anthropologie yesterday. It was almost as bad as weighing myself (scale is in storage for the month) from the perspective of being potentially discouraging. Not sure what I was expecting after merely 6 days but whatever it was, it wasn't there and the body I had when I started was. I had remind myself that W30 has worked for me in the past, I am not looking for the quick and temporary fix that calorie restriction will bring and regardless of that fact that I look the same, I truly feel better already. I guess my message to myself and anyone else who is feeling a tad discouraged is... just stay the course. W30 works... just stay the course and stay out of Anthropologie for a while! Have a great weekend everyone. Kellygirl

    Day 4 for me of 3rd W30 and feeling surprisingly good. I recall feeling low energy the first few rounds as I stopped eating oatmeal, grains and gave up snacking abruptly. I think the key to avoid hunger and weakness is to eat more at meals than you think you need. If I eat my "usual" size breakfast, I'm hungry within a few hours. Adding another egg or including soup from the day before or throwing in some butternut squash has helped satiate me this time. Just a thought if you're feeling sluggish. Phantommeb- vomiting definitely sounds like the flu and not detox symptoms. It's that time of year. Hang in there and if you need a tasty and comforting recipe to try Melissa Hartwig's chicken cacciatore is delish! kellygirl

    Happy New Year everyone! Started my 3rd W30 in 3 years yesterday. Seems to be an annual tradition to help reset my body and slay the post-holidays-sugar beast. Though I have done the W30 before ( with great success I might add) I love trying new recipes and tips to mix things up and keep it fresh. Today for the first time I made egg muffin frittatas and they're delicious and I have breakfast covered for days. For newbies, Melissa Joulwan's Well Fed recipes are so tasty even the kids and husband enjoy! Great luck everyone. kellygirl P.S. Being part of the forum has most certainly been a big key to my success with the program so you're already off to a great start!

    2nd Time Around starting 1 October

    Hi there, I started my 3rd W30 in as many years on Oct 1. Glad to join you all on the forum. I have found the support and accountability the forum provides, is integral to success (plus makes it more fun). What I love about the W30 and why I come back to it is that I do not feel deprived or hungry, I enjoy what I am eating, the flexibility works for my busy-mom-of-three lifestyle and it effectively slays my sugar dragon (for a while at least). I enjoy doing it in the Fall because I kick off the holiday season feeling good, looking good and being more disciplined about what I put in my mouth. But, most importantly, in the Fall I tend to succumb to Seasonal Affect Disorder ( SAD). Some may think of it as the "winter blues" but for me it starts in late Fall as the light shifts and days are shorter. I start to feel low energy, anti-social, and apathetic in general. It's like a seasonal depression. I usually start feeling more myself in late Jan or mid Feb as days lengthen and spring approaches. It's almost as if I want to hibernate, pull in, bake and eat carb & sugar laden treats all winter. It has been this way for me for as long as I can remember and I have tried many things to try to counter these doldrums. The W30 is one of the most effective ways for me to find balance and counteract the dark feelings I get during the winter. In the past 2 years while doing W30, I feel so much more positive, light in spirit and energetic. It makes such a tremendous difference in my outlook and I enjoy the holiday season much more. Four days down and so far, so good. Looking forward to sharing this journey with you. Kellygirl
