iogato Posted January 18, 2013 Share Posted January 18, 2013 Hi, I am a first-timer. I am incredibly excited about the Whole30 and about everyone who is on this forum. I found the forum yesterday and I think this is exactly what I need to carry me through. So many resources. How can I even begin to thank you for all that you have shared.... maybe I can show my appreciation my completing my Whole30, eh? About me: -Athletic mother of 2 kids under 3YO -work full time -lift hvy wts and cardio ~5 hrs week -too many hobbies to juggle successfully -avidly get excited about too many things Why do I want to do the Whole30: -I have an unhealthy relationship with food. I love sweets (particularly chocolate). I love salt. I love wine. I love food. -I am also looking to drop some weight to get back to my faster (and thinner) pre-baby self. I am already really active so after a year of exercising diligently, I decided it is time to look at my food choices. -Oh, and I fall asleep every afternoon (I also drink too much caffeine). My known challenge: -Resisting temptation! I have too kids that love their bread and dairy products, it will be hard to make them healthy food and abstain from putting a portion in my mouth. Although I will try and feed them what I eat. I tried to start the Whole30 4 days ago, however, fell off the wagon each day. It has been a good experience trying out the meals though. So, after reading tips throughout the forum, I am setting my start date for Monday January 21 so I can get my meals planned, fridge stocked and the support I need in place. Woohoo! Happy to be here.
