“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20.

A bit of success

When I first began with gluten free I had just weighed in on April 10th at 200.4 lbs. blah!

I was nervous to begin but that is just what I did on April 13th. I went cold turkey because with gluten that's just what you do. My mantra for the time.... "Ill feel better than that food tastes"

I slowly thought of all the foods Ill never eat again (Krispy Kreme, and a few other I can't remember now thank goodness)

I never really crave anything. I almost immediately notice positive differences:
I slept better
Woke up better
Had level energy through the day
Ached less (from fibromyalgia)
I also lost around 4-5 lbs pretty fast. In about 2 weeks. Considering my 3-5 lb loss over the last two years I was pretty excited.

I leveled off for a bit though I kept going. No matter what zero gluten. No cheating at all.

I had a bad week a week ago when I couldn't get enough chocolate and ice cream. I was getting a DQ blizzard or Hershey bar like every day. All
Gluten free but not healthy. I believe it was due to stress at the end of the school year and maybe some girly reasons too. Even during that week I lost .4

This week I have fixed the chocolate issue. I have weighed in today at 192.8. So I've lost right at 8 lbs in about 6 weeks. I'm super excited. I feel as though the gluten is finally out if my system and I'm on a role.

I go back to the dr in about 6 more weeks. I would love to be at 179 when I go back

This week I have a goal to get back to my weight watchers point tracking. It's been hard for me to keep that up while learning to eat gluten free.

Next week when my girly reasons have gone away I will be settling in more on a summer workout routine.

I am not only still here but I have some success to share.

I haven't posted much this spring. I have yet to find a good balance in the spring as I prepare my choirs for state assessment. That balance is something that I plan to work on each year until I find it.

Anyhow. I've still been here, tweeting, instagraming, and working to findtheskinny. I just haven't been blogging.

I have had some success with the gluten free eating and I can't wait to share.

Tomorrow is my first day of summer break and I can't wait to find my summer workout routine and get to blogging.

Details on my recent weight loss tomorrow!
