ErinL Posted November 27, 2013 Share Posted November 27, 2013 My name is Erin. I am a 36 year old wife and mother of 2 wonderful little girls. I am currently at my heaviest weight ever. I didn't even weigh this much when I was pregnant! I am done feeling this way and have decided that the Whole30 is my best option for change. I was going to start on Dec. 2, but then I was reading on the website all the reasons not to start a drastic change during the holidays and it made a lot of sense to me. So I will take this month to research, plan meals and shop for those non-perishable items that I might not have already. There are some things that will be very tough for me to follow...I drink a lot of tea. I don't use sugar or Splenda, but I do use Sweet Leaf brand stevia. I probably have 8-9 cups of hot tea a day in the winter. So drinking it straight will be a learning curve for me. I will also have to train myself to drink more water in the winter. I do great all spring, summer, and fall. Then it gets cold and I have to have a cup of tea! That being said, all I drink is tea and water anyhow. My other challenges will be lunch for my husband, who does not have access to a microwave at work. He is a delivery driver for FedEx and eats while running his route. And my girls. They are wonderful eaters, but not having cereal, oatmeal, and toast for breakfast will cramp their style. And the no dairy. They love their milk and cheese! I'm not sure how I will handle them yet. This month will help me get prepared I guess! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
