    Wow! This is going to be a big group!! We had a great group in our "Starting May 11" thread and it was super helpful, especially since I was totally new to Whole 30!

    I did my last one over Memorial Day Weekend and I can attest - it was HARD!

    I just finished my first Whole 30 on June 9! I'm giving myself a couple of weeks where I'll continue to be close to compliant - maybe 85% - then July 1 I'm jumping back on.

    Oh! That IS interesting! I'm going to check into that, but that does sound familiar! Maybe its mostly my activity that I have to step up. I'd been walking ALOT - like competitively all last year - as all of my office got Fitbits and my husband got one. It was nothing for me to take a 5 or 6+ mile walk. Getting 12-15k steps a day. THEN - I fractured my ankle in Puerto Rico over Christmas the day before we were getting on a cruise. UGH. Of course I didn't know at the time it was fractured - I thought surely its just a bad (really, really bad, awful) sprain. I dealt with it the whole week on the cruise ship by eating lots of ibuprophen, icing ALOT and just going about my business! But it hurt. Got it checked out when we got back and yup...fractured. And now...6 months later its not healed properly and the ortho told me it may/probably will not. Awesome.

    I agree with this for me too. I need to re-evaluate my protein & fat portions. Like - I'd eat 2 turkey burgers or salmon patties instead of just 1 which is what I probably should be eating. Its a fist size portion of protein, isn't it? Not 2 fists. LOL And on my big salads sometimes I'd have a few fats - like half an avocado, a tbsp of sunflower seeds, 5 or 6 olives PLUS the dressing. I'm taking all of that into consideration. And the exercise too.

    Yay, us! We did it!! For me - 5lbs lost, but to me it feels like more, so thats what counts. I hate the scale. I'm a little nervous about eating off-plan things! Ha! But we are going away this weekend - leaving on Friday for a wine tasting trip in the Finger Lakes here in NY. Sooo I'll definately be doing some re-introducing then! Congrats all!
