Just thought that you would like to know that I have been mostly gluten-free since Friday when I saw you.
I have a had a few moments when I did indulge but I am happy to report that I am already 7 pounds lighter! I am so happy and I noticed that my feet are not as swollen anymore.
I could actually lace my shoes tighter!
This is a big deal for me because for the last 2 years putting on my shoes has been a daily reminder of the weight I was gaining and risk I was putting my health in.
I have also cut caffeine completely.
My GI issues also seem to have been greatly improved.
This has been such a blessing.
Need I say more? I love that this is really happening for patients! I couldn’t make this up if I tried. Have I told you lately that sooooo many patients are getting better with this “Food is thy Medicine” thing. Quackery, it is not. This sh&% really works!!
Don’t worry-I plan to keep annoying and preaching to you regularly. I honestly think that hearing the results from other patients is much more inspiring than hearing me preach to you. So Game On! Look forward to more inspiring patient stories!
Also, please realize this is really hard for my family and I as well. Staying healthy is expensive, takes a lot of effort, and isn’t fun. Jeez, it’s almost a full-time job. Caving into guilt and exhaustion this last week, I took both of my girls to McDonald’s for dinner (YUCK). That must be rock bottom!
This is hard –and it’s best to take Baby Steps– One baby step at a time!
That’s just about all I can say! Next week, I think I’ll move to Australia (Alexander and the horrible, terrible, no good, very bad, day)
