    W30 certainly simplifies things. LOL
    Unfortunately, the rest of my family is not even Primal...yet.

    About the "little things". I did want to add that I don't think people need to start over every time something that is not allowed slips in. For example, I discovered that my current coconut milk contains sulfites. That doesn't mean that I am doing day 1 again today. The balance to that is not letting more and more "No list" stuff slip in.

    Today is Day 2. Tomorrow I will go buy a different brand of CM.

    If I make 30 days without sweeteners, *most dairy and no binges, I will feel successful.
    (*I allow for butter when eating out)

        Paula, if you're going 99%, why not let go of the butter and go 100% so that you can feel the accomplishment of completing a Whole 30? What do you have to lose except a few pounds? You can do this! What restaurant food would really need butter?

          On day 1, my husband insisted that we go out to eat. I had butter on 1/2 a potato, so it is already a "done deal" so to speak.
          I don't plan to eat out again, but in my house when my husband wants to go out, we go. It is not worth the argument to say no. We don't eat out that often.

          At home, I am using ghee.

          I believe that you can have the accomplishment of completing a Whole 30 without perfectionism, but that is just me. I refuse to say day 1 again over a pat of butter or unseen sulfites.

          I'm not saying that everyone else should think this way about w30, that is just my take on it.

            i started mine on the 20th June so this is day 15 for me but I am going to the end of June.

            I cheated a little last night (New York Style Cheesecake) but I am fasting today and I am back on it for this week.

            It is always harder in the summer for me due to social commitments of the sport i play. Trying my best though

            Fast today

              Well, I am back to square one with weight this morning after OD'ing on a roast chicken and coconut milk with blueberries yesterday. Don't you just love when the hard-lost pounds come right back overnight? Back at 136 instead of being down to 131 as hoped. And that's after doing hours of pounding my stepping stones into the ground and digging, and a hap-ki-do class. Plus the swelling really intensified on my poor eye. Ew.

              Oh, well, gonna try to have a good day anyways. The first gum paste and fondant cake decorating class tonight, yay!

                don't always listen to the scale Leida, its a god dam liar.

                It usually takes 2-3 days for me to get rid of the bad stuff from my body

                    Probably just water weight. I never weigh after an od day...know it is going to be bad so why torture myself...I think the hardest part of th W30 for me is the no scale part...on day 2
                    And it is kind of nice not having the number set the tone for my day...of course i can almost always tell by the size of my stomach what my weight will be and right now that isnt pretty but what I dont know cant hurt me lol...just hoping to have tbhe strength to stay the course (the food part should be easy since Ive been primal for a while...no butter or cream r my only changes )

                      I prefer to weigh daily, as I find the hardest thing for me to deal with is the false hope. I am endlessly hopeful person, and I just can't stop hoping that one day my body will just suddenly respond with a fat loss. It never happens, and it's kindda hard. So I weigh myself to keep the expectations in check.

                      I know that my WOE is for optimal performance, but I still can't let go of a dream of acquiring a firm body without losing sleep, feeling lethargic and exhausted, starving and not eating yummy fruit. The sooner I do, the better I will be.

                        I totally understand that, Leida.

                        For the first time on W 30 I am taking up the "No weigh" challenge and it is hard. Not sure what will happen if the number on July 1st does not match my hopes. I still have a good amount to lose though so there should be some movement.

                          Yeah, i did W30 in the past w/o weighing in, and went for weeks enforced no weigh ins, and tbh, it is just hard, and not liberating in any way, and creates more stress for me than weighing in

                            Leida: Do you still have a scale in your house? One of the things that made W30s easier for me was moving to a place that didn't have a scale. If not weighing in is stressful, then that's a prime indication that you have a bad relationship with your scale.

                            Pebbles: You could always not weigh at the end of the W30.

                              First two days are behind me. So far so good. I miss extra-old cheddar, and I'm now acutely aware of just how much cheating I was actually doing as an 80% PB. Should be a good opportunity to shed some bad habits.

                              As for Whole 30 being a good or bad introduction to Primal/Paleo, I personally dont think so. If someone had presented this program to me in January (when I started being PB-ish) I would have laughed at it. Far too Draconian. Having already broken the carb addiction, I feel more empowered today to try something like this. But as an intro I think I would have been setting myself up for failure.
