    Before you start

    I am on Day 53 of Paleo lifestyle, so I have done my best not to completely blow my efforts over the holidays/last days of December, but I am definitely "loading" before Jan 1st. Oh, and no, I am not waiting to feel hungry before I eat another snack. My pre-Whole30 guilty pleasures: dark chocolate, nuts & nut butters, cheese & yogurt, bananas.

    Hi SharynP, Looks like we have a few things in common - our location, our sugar/chocolate addiction, being new to Whole30, and enjoying sleeping in our own room after sharing one for ? years. Let's stay in touch and let's do this!!

    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.

    Starting on Jan 1

    So awesome to see so many like-minded people! I learned about Whole30 a couple of days ago, did some research, and landed here. I will be starting my first Whole30 on Jan 1st as well. I am not expecting it to be easy, but seeing all the enthusiasm on this forum is making me excited and motivated!
