    Day 22! I love seeing all the photos and recipes. How's everyone doing? I'm at that point where my meals have become easy and routine. I still have the urge to snack now and then. That's the main thing I'm dealing with. Exercise is much easier and sleep is better. Who else from 1/2 start date are still out there? I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

    What a great lunch!  I may go fix that now for breakfast!  
    We are doing this thing!  Day 2 I fought the Sugar Dragon...day 3 was better...keeping meals simple but tasty so I don’t dread prepping.  Hope to spend a little time today mapping out this week’s meals.
    Best to everyone!

    Hello All!
    I just started today as well! I'm super excited to get my health on track, 2018 was a very unhealthy year for me. I'm very into craft beer, and I did not balance the heavy beers with healthy foods and exercise - which led to eating out CONSTANTLY and 20 pounds put on and overall feeling sluggish and down on myself.
    I did all my shopping and meal prep yesterday and it was a tad overwhelming - I'm going to need to get better at meal prepping. I wanted the first week to be delicious, so I went all out on my groccey store trip, but I think i went a tad overboard.

    Started today too, my first time around. Have had the books for a few years and finally feel motivated. 
    Today went really well. Day one✔️

    Looking forward to starting Jan 2.  Between Thanksgiving and now, I have been consumed by the Sugar Dragon!  Can’t wait to get back in control.  For first timers....plan and prepare...those are the keys to success!   Keep your meals simple (but tasty with things you already enjoy) to begin so that you don’t dread preparing.  Thrilled that there are newbies and experienced folks in this forum....let’s be an encouragement to each other.  I have been doing a Whole30 about twice a year since 2011 and so I am happy to share what works for me.

    I'm starting on the 2nd as well. This is Whole30 number 12 for me...!
    My first Whole 30 was in January of 2013. I've done a few each year ever since--except for 2018, where it was a year of weight gain and activity loss for me. So it's time to right this ship and get back to feeling the way I KNOW it feels to eat well, be active, and really enjoy the healthy choices I make. I also will enjoy the CRAZY food dreams that will invariably arrive... 
    I'll be prepping ever so slightly over the next few days, but honestly I'll be eating the last of the Christmas biscuits, drinking the last of the egg nog lattes, toasting the last of the holiday cocktails. So I expect that carb flu to hit HARD come the first week of January...and I say, bring it!
