    Sandri got a reaction from hirondelle in CALLING ALL JANUARY 1ST WHOLE30ERS!   
    Newbie, kind of tried it last year for 14 days but putting in more effort this time to prep and plan! Jan 1 it is.
    Female, 40's, living in Pacific Northwest. Love to cook but go through slumps of not wanting to make anything; sugar addict and lover of diary. Would be great to get online support and not do it alone. Hubbie is halfway in but travels a lot, teenage son is competitive swimmer who eats like a horse. Tricky...

    Sandri reacted to Vian in A new year, a new whole30, a new me.   
    I am ready to start focusing on losing weight again. I lost, at my best, 68lbs. Over the last few years its crept back up and i regained about 20lbs. I spent the last year getting my psoriasis under control and now its almost gone, so now i want to get my weight back down to where i am happy with it. I want to lose about 50lbs, which means about a pound a week in 2016, which is absolutely doable. I will start with a whole30.
     
    My whole30 will be semi-AIP. Not only will I follow all the normal whole30 rules, but I will also not eat tomatoes, peppers or other nightshades, and I will also avoid nuts (I do ok with pecans and walnuts in moderation, but almonds and macadamia nuts make my psoriasis flair up)
     
    So here is my first meal of the new year and my whole30. Crumbled home made sausage with crumbled bacon and roasted sweet potato and onions.

    For lunch i had leftover burger with bacon, caramelized onions, and lettuce wrap with a salad on the side.
    Dinner is mini meatloaf muffins with home made nomato ketchup (made with beets, carrots, and apple juice for sweetness) with roasted brussels sprouts and sweet potato mash with cinnamon and ghee.

    Greetings!  A first-timer Sofie from the beautiful Pacific NW here.  Going to give Whole30 my best shot, starting Jan 1st.  So great to do this with a group of like-minded people! 
     
    I already posted my intro in the Log section, so here is a shortened version:
     
    I have never been able to follow a strict diet for more than 14 days, but I am currently experimenting with Paleo lifestyle and changing my mindset from a "temporary restrictive diet" to a "real-food lifestyle change".
     
    A brief intro:
    Female Mid 40s Sugar addict (especially a week before that special monthly event ) Explorer of a wide variety of diets since 19 y.o. Experienced yo-yo dieter Former believer that fat, meat, and eggs are bad and grain is good Current believer that I finally have the maturity to understand that I don't have to be skinny, but I do have to eat well and be healthy.
