    First day on Whole 30 again. I did one in February. I think the hardest part is the first two weeks. I crave some sugar in the evening. I miss my wine

    Thanks for all your posts and support! Friday I'm going to keep on this plan for the most part but now and then I'll choose some Paleo ingredients. If I find that my weight isn't going down I'll do another whole 30.

    Good job Kate! I'm happy that you are doing so good. I found an awesome recipe on Pinterest for cabbage rolls and made it today. It's a recipe from " This West Coast Mommy". It works for whole 30 and we just loved it. Here it is if anyone wants it. http://pin.it/NHh9C4M

    I'm also nervous about weighing in. I think I lost a bit more. But you never know until you step on the scale. I think I'm going to continue eating this way for 95% of the time but will eat a bit more Paleo. So that means add in a little honey here and there in some recipes. I'm also going to give up dairy for the most part. I think that was the problem in my diet. I used to crave cheese. And I've heard that normally if you crave something chances are you can have food sensitivities to it. My cholesterol was always to high. I'm curious if it's gone down. I'm going to check it again in a few months while continuing on this path. Take care! 10 more days

    I was so tempted to weigh myself this morning because it was the first of the month but I didn't. I'm with Karen, just keep on going.

    Still with you. Work has been overwhelming lately. Not much time for me

    I cooked cauliflower rice at least 4 days a week. I've been buying them already pre-grated in bags at Trader Joes and I've also heard that some Walmart stores carry them. I've never thought of freezing them...Thanks!

    Naz...I got the Wow Drops in the mail today. It is amazing. It's really strong and I know why they call it WOW. It's worth buying. I also made a dish I found on Pinterest. By my Natural Family. It's Sun-Dried Tomato Creamy Chicken. It's like a recipe I used to make but substuting the cream for Coconut Milk. I was very good. Here is the link if anyone wants it. http://pin.it/itpMssJ I made it with cauliflower rice. Keep at it everyone!

    Sarah... Fitbits are great. I have one and use it everyday. I did a lot of shopping today and I put about 8,000 steps on it. When I first got it I put on about 16,000 steps a day. That was in the Winter when I take three months off of work. Since I've been back I don't have much time for walking. ( need to really push myself) Karen....I'm glad your back is better! That normally takes awhile to heal. Naz...I enjoy salads a lot too. Lately I've been making an Asian Chicken salad and taking it to work for lunch. I had a number of people walk pass my desk and commenting how good it looks. I found the dressing in the Whole 30 book under "Asian Vinaigrette. Yummy

    Karen....stay with us and keep going. You'll find the more you do Whole 30 the better you'll feel. Even if you did have a slip up. I plan on doing this as long as it makes sense for me. It's not a diet for me any longer. ( although I do love losing weight on it). It's more about putting good quality food in my body. Since I've been on this for a while I now cringe when I see my co-workers put junk food in their mouth. The thought of sodas, popcorn, candy bars, and what ever else doesn't even sound good. I guess my cravings are gone.
