    Starting 8/1, would love a buddy!

    I just chugged some more water!! I feel super crappy today...I'm trying to believe it's because of this cold I'm suffering through but hope it's also ridding the toxins in my body with the W30! I feel like I could just go lay in a dark hole for days and sleeeeeep. How is everyone else?

    @Lisa RangelIt's my understanding you are still supposed to eat when you're not feeling like it or not that hungry. If you don't, you're going to risk getting more hungry later on and going off track. Also, we're not supposed to be snacking...just 3 meals a day. So, even if it's not much, just be sure to get some compliant options in your belly. I'm sure a moderator may have more tips and tricks with this question too!

    Hola! Today is my day 1 --- I'm subscribed to those dailies and love them! Does anyone else get those? I used them during my first W30 and they were great...they tell you what to expect, how to overcome obstacles and give you recipe/meal ideas. I'm hoping this first week of withdrawals goes by quickly...I have an awful head cold and have no desire to eat crap because I can't taste anything But, I'm tired and everyone at work brings in so much junk food, it's hard to get away from! Hope everyone else is doing good and just remember, to KEEP ON SWIMMING!

    A fresh start on July 31st

    Well, today is "technically" my day 2 for me but really Day 1 since I started getting my dailies this morning...ha - how confusing is that? I'm battling an awful head cold since my kiddo is in daycare, she seems to bring everything home! Hopefully, since I can't taste anything...my cravings will be at bay and I won't notice the withdrawals because I already feel so cruddy At work, people like to bring in so much junk....today, someone brought in baseball sugar cookies and chocolate nugget bars....again, glad I can't "taste" anything! LOL Hope everyone else is still doing well!!

    Hi Everyone!! This thread looks so inviting!! Can I join you? I'm actually starting my 2nd Whole30 tomorrow...I wanted to sign up for the newsletters and forgot yesterday, did it today and then it wouldn't let me get them until tomorrow... I did my first Whole30 back in 2015...we were trying to get pregnant and I needed to get healthy. Had awesome results! Since then, we were able to get pregnant, had a baby girl and NOW, need to get back on track!

    Today I woke up feeling pretty hungry! But, it was nice to be home for the weekend and have easier access to good foods versus temptations at work. Hope everyone is doing well!

    Day 4 over here...things are tough today. It's Bagel Friday at work and people bring in so much junk...We have a "sharing table" where others drop off their goodies to share and I sit right next to it. UGHHHH. So tempting to give in....just keep swimming, just keep swimming. Also, I'm already realizing that I need to go grocery shopping again! I feel like I was just there last weekend...I am going to try and prep some more on Saturday by making "meals to go" or that can be re-heated very quickly! Cheers to the weekend!

    Day 3 for me and good Lord, I feel cruddy. It was soooo hard getting out of bed today...AND I have a headache and feel like I'm coming down with something. I'm going to chalk it up to the W30 hangover and just keep pushing on. I haven't been craving much but I do miss my Dt. Mountain Dew...so I bought some La Croix sparkling water to help settle the carbonation fix. Last night, instead of going home for a glass of wine to reward myself for just getting through the day (sad, I know.), I went and had my hair done to get a little self pampering...so nice and relaxing and totally worth it versus that wine! I even added some fun color for kicks! Chef Mike, with your coffee, do you blend your almond butter and coconut milk? or just stir it in?

    Dunie - I love hearing how supportive you are with your wife! I honestly wish my hubby would be more "considerate" I mean, he's supportive but basically is like it's your choice to do what you do and then he'll eat whatever I make, so he's not fussy. But, he wasn't on board for doing W30 with me. So, AWESOME for you guys that you can do it together!

    Sounds like things are going well for everyone! I'm actually quite confident that I can finish my second W30 this time versus the other times I tried. Yesterday, went well, I didn't have any urges to snack or cheat. But, my biggest temptations come on the weekends. I got out this morning and took the dogs for a walk and I'm already starting to feel less bloated/inflamed. Based on the W30 timeline, the "hangover" is coming...if it's not already here Has anyone else felt these symptoms yet - headache, fatigue, etc? On to day 2 for me...I'm planning to make the Shepard's Pie tonight...it is by far my FAVORITE recipe in the Whole30 book! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
