    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.

    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 am starting July 1st with my fiance for my first Whole30 ever! I am reading the Whole30 book from cover to cover in excitement (and for preparation). As for me, I have been on a meal plan created by my nutritionist for the past few months (gluten free, no cow's milks dairy, low sugar), but it just isn't doing anything for me. I still have hormonal imbalances, intense cravings, and a sugar dragon that could guest star on Game of Thrones. Looking forward to embarking on this adventure with you all!

    I'm in and looking forward to it. I did my first one in February and have not gone back except for the occasional dinner out and the resumption of enjoying a glass of wine. I feel so much better and frankly, I love the cooking; it's therapeutic in a way.

    I completed a Whole60 Jan/Feb/Mar 2015 and can't wait to start another one on July 1.
     
    I've kept pretty much Whole 30 since March but find myself "off roading" why too much.

    Committing to July 1 start!
    Did my first Whole 30 at the end of April - was on Day 28 when I fell from a treadmill post workout, fracturing a bone in my foot and spraining my ankle - so I never measured or anything.
    Challenging month with the injury, so now I want to try again and FINISH this time!

    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.

    Hard to believe it's DAY 30 for me. I'm not ready for reintroductions just yet, since i've only recently come to see what a huge role lifestyle plays in my mood & energy level and I'd like to keep the food a constant for a little longer while I work out the lifestyle stuff (sleep, water, eating every 5 hours, etc). those are the biggest challenges for me so far. 
     
    Virtual Hugs and high-fives to everyone! Your doing amazing with your reintros! Keep it up!
