Starting June 2 - anyone else?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I will be starting my first Whole30 tomorrow, June 2nd and I'd love to build/join a group starting on the same day.


I was hoping to start today but messed up my planning and will be officially starting tomorrow. My first attempt was May 2nd and I made it 9 days but then I "fell off". I've been intending to restart since but I haven't had much success and I've been on an emotional roller coaster of trying, failing, beating myself up for failing. Time to get off that ride.


I am fairly nervous about this because on Thursday (Day 3) I'm flying out to Phoenix for a week-long conference. I've scoped out where the Whole Foods are and I plan on stocking up my first day so I'm prepared. I'm also going to a Bachelorette party on Day 19 so that's another challenge I have to look forward to as well. One day at a time, one day at a time.


My motivation:


1) I am getting married at the end of October and I have 30lbs to shed before then. I'm hoping the Whole30 will be a great way to kick start my weight loss and set me on a healthy track.


2) I want to improve my relationship with food. I am an emotional eater and I have a tendency to eat large quantities of food when I'm stressed or anxious.


3) I want to improve my athletic performance. I love to run and be active but I am prone to injury and I am hoping that eliminating inflammatory foods will help. 


4) I want to be able to say that I did it! 


Best of luck to everyone in their journey and I hope to share success stories!

Good Afternoon. I am starting tomorrow as well. It's my 61st birthday and decided to do a challenge. I just retired and want to live this next chapter much healthier. Good luck tomorrow and keep in touch. Jill Ann

Hi all.

I started today too. It has felt a little hectic despite the planning and preparation. Juggling work, two toddlers, usual life and then the additional cooking has been a challenge but not so bad that I don't think I'll make it.

Good luck to my fellow June 2 starters. I look forward to following your progress and hopefully sharing some support.
