    First of all, way to go everyone for making it to day 3!  We can do this!  I, too, woke up with a hangover type headache. My plan is to take a couple of Advil, drink a little black tea, and hydrate with water all day.

    Hi everyone!  It's day 2 for me, and I am really looking forward to this adventure.  This is my 2nd W30, so I know it's absolutely doable.  Thankfully, my husband is doing it along with me.  I would also be interested in a group text or some other accountability tool.  I'm 51 years old from Louisville, KY, with 3 kids.  My oldest 2 girls are home from college for the break, and I also have a 17 year old son.  I've got several compliant cookbooks which certainly help for meal planning.

    Hi all! Love this thread and would like to join in as an accountability partner as well! I'm 30, not married (in a relationship), and have started this 1-1-19. This is my first go at whole30 and I chose this program as I have dealt with weight and food issues/food issue related health problems for a while now. I am trying to set in some good habits going into the future, and lower my BMI to a normal range. I am prone to depression and have been through MDD a few years ago during grad school. Going into the future, I know setting up these habits now is what it will take to "set me up for success" in the future. Cheers all, we got this!!

    Day 3 has dawned and I'm feeling slightly better than yesterday but that remains to be seen. Had a killer headache at the end of the day 2 workday and took an Aleve when I got home, which I literally never do but it was that bad. Managed to go to bed at a decent time which I think helped a lot. I wish I could stay home and sleep but work calls! I know I'm feeling the effects of overindulging in alcohol and sweets this holiday season so I'm not too worried about it, just going to keep on truckin' and be thankful this is only a 3-day work week. Hope everyone else is hanging in there too, and happy day 3!

    Day 3!!! Each day thus far I've had a consistant headache, not a throbbing one... it's just "there". Today and tomorrow I have my personal training sessions, then meal prep on Saturday.   Other than the headache I'm doing well.   For me to get through each morning/evening I have incorporated the treadmill before breakfast for 45 minutes,  I don't bring snack food to work, I'm sticking to just 3 meals a day.  I journal my food after each meal,  and as a Christmas gift my daughter gave my husband and I each a journal book to fill out about each of our lives thus far as a memoir.   I'm enjoying filling out a couple of pages each day and thinking about how my daughter will be sitting reading about her mother and her life later on in her journey through life.   This also keeps my mind from wondering to food.  Have a wonderful,  healthy,  safe whole30 day!!

    I did my first Whole30 last January and felt great by the time I finished.  Just days later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and have spent this last year in treatment, including a masectomy, chemotherapy, and two additional surgeries.  My treatment ended in December and I'm excited to begin my second Whole30 with you all.  Day 2, feeling fine.  I got through the last year surprisingly well (yes, Melissa, cancer is hard, Whole30 is only sort of hard!) and I know that clean eating and a positive mindset made a big difference (and my doctors agree).  To any of you who are cancer survivors or have other health challenges, work with your medical team but doing something great for yourself like the Whole30 helps both the body and spirit.  I am grateful to be here to do this journey!!

    I have this same issue with wine - I found that drinking my favorite flavors of hot tea really helped with this! It's a different way to "unwind" and relax, especially in the colder months, and gave me the same sense of satisfaction. Try replacing the wine with something compliant that you like.

    Hi, I'm Tobin. I'm a 25-year-old marketer living in Torrance, CA.
     
    I just started Whole30 on the first of the month and am excited to see how it affects my skin, mood and energy levels.
     
    Last year I started but did not finish the full thirty days. I actually received some pushback/judgment from my family when mentioning my plan to start while on vacation last year. They mostly felt that the food groups eliminated were too extreme, so I've decided to keep my plans to myself this year.
     
    So far I've bought a ton of veggies and meats and have roasted them up, but I want to make more complete meals like stir-fry or soups in the coming weeks. My main craving is likely going to be for sweets, so I'm hoping to lean on fresh fruits and spindrift to get me through.
     
    Wishing everyone on here good luck and perseverance through the month!
