    ChristyJ got a reaction from Jennifer Jensen in Mama in need of a reset - starting late October   
    I'm planning on starting Oct. 19th too!  I wanted to start sooner, but have a colonoscopy (50 yr old must do) this Thursday, so I had to wait until that was over with.  I've made a handful of soups over the past month and have been routinely freezing a quart or two per batch.  I've done a couple of Whole30s previously, but it's been a while.  I'm ready to get back on track.

    I prepare a lot of my meals by just throwing things together. But, I do love me a good recipe to break things up. These are my most frequent and most favorites recipes! 
    Golden Cauliflower Soup: (I make a double batch and use this as a way to add veggies to my breakfast) Spinach and Artichoke Twice Baked Potatoes: (this is one of my all-time favorite recipes ever) Salisbury Steak Meatballs: (this might just be the best gravy I've ever had) Sesame Chicken: (this tastes like the real deal (i.e., like the stuff from my favorite Chinese place)  Hmmm... I think that's it for now! In general, my favorite recipe authors are Paleo Running Momma and Mel Joulwan! I highly encourage you to check them out for some new and delicious recipes! 
    Best wishes to you!

    Hey group, I'm starting today. I've been doing w30s once a year for the past 5 years. I'm just finishing a 30 day yoga challenge, so I feel like this is kind of extension of that exercise. Time to take care of me! Good luck everyone.

    I'm starting tomorrow!  I'm officially in perimenopause which, along with some other things, has caused quite a bit of weight gain.  Looking forward to feeling better in my skin and my clothes fitting

    Me! Day 1 of round 3. Early last year, I did my first round to try and combat chronic vertigo which had defied any diagnosis or treatment and was getting to the point I was thinking of stopping full time work. Within 3 weeks of my first round, it was gone. I stayed mostly compliant and did another full round around May but then backslid badly at the rear of last year and now the vertigo is back, so so is W30! 
    I was going to prep on the weekend, but I was feeling crappy and so I did the minimum - made lunches and mayo, but hoping I'll feel better after a week on it and really knock off my food prep this coming weekend.

    This is my 4th Whole30.  I did my first one a few years ago and stuck with it for about two years.  My sugar dragon mixed with menopause took a toll on me over the past six months (I gained weight and have achy joints again), and I'm finally ready to get back to eating healthy and feeling good! 
    I started prepping food here and there over the past week and have done a ton of cooking today. My husband is going keto, so not as strict as me, but he'll be eating clean which will be soooo helpful!
    Did anyone else start today?
