Back on track with gluten free living

Friday, November 02, 2012

So it is a new month and this month we celebrate Thanksgiving. I was feeling really anxious about trying to get back on track with my gluten free lifestyle because of the upcoming holidays. I had to remind myself that this is not just me on a diet, or me trying something new. I feel like crap, my body hurts, my weight loss has stalled, I am tired all the gluten intolerance is kicking my ass and the only person allowing it is me. I did great for 6 months and then relapsed (yes, like an addict...I had one taste and was stuck). So I asked my mom and grandmother if they minded doing a gluten free thanksgiving. I should really be dairy free as well, but one thing at a time, right? Anyway, they agreed to it and that made me also decide that if they are willing to do this huge adjustment for me I need to be willing to get back on track. So today was day 2 of being back to gluten free. So far I feel ok. And today was my first day back in the gym in 9 days. The hurricane, halloween, and a few other things messed up my gym schedule but now I am good to go. :)

Well, that is all for now. Just wanted to reaffirm my commitment to gluten free living. Next up will be dairy again and corn...yes, I have allergies to both and yet I torture myself by eating it.

    I love corn. It would be hard for me to give up.

    Nice job! You can do this!!! Making any type of choice that makes you feel better, no matter what it is, is a definite plus! I know when I don't eat a lot of sugar I feel amazing...but sometimes I "forget" and get back into my sugar-eating habit...and I feel horrible. BUT! Where I succeed is that I get right back on track! Here's to healthy eating :)

    It is hard but definitely doable. I relapse all the time and definitely feel it. I'm glad to be gluten free and vegan. It really helps me feel better. Good luck! You can do it!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That's fantastic that your family is going to support you. Some people don'g realize that gluten sensitivity is like any other food allergy. Congratulations on your renewed commitment to health and wellbeing. emoticon emoticon
