Lost 8 lbs!!

Ok, so I have been working on this elimination diet from JJ Virgin. You drink two of her shakes (breakfast and lunch is what I do) for 21 days. During this time you are eliminating gluten, soy, corn, egg, dairy, peanuts, and sugar. After 21 days, you slowly introduce them back into your diet (a week at a time) and see how your body reacts to it. I am hoping to keep dairy and eggs!!

Now I am totally on board with gluten and have been gluten free for a year. I don't eat anything wheat, wheat based, rye, or malt. It is a little hard to find the "hidden" gluten in medicines, but I do my best. Also things you would not think of having gluten such as: salad dressings, gravies/sauces, and "fillers". I felt so much better because I did not feel full (even if I only had a couple of bites), my stomach no longer was cramping, and I didn't feel like I had to vomit after eating. Even though I was starting to feel better, still no weight loss. Enter JJ Virgin.

So I have been doing this for almost 3 weeks and I have not only felt better, more energy, less hunger, but I have also lost 8 lbs! This may not be much to you, but it has put me down a size!! I love to see my results, that is what I get excited about.

You know, it is funny. I used to be an emotional eater. Now I am eating when I am hungry. I also participated in a week long, free, online Gluten Summit. There were doctors, dieticians, nutritionists, etc discussing how bad gluten is for you, what it does to your body, and how it could effect Alzheimer's Disease, RA, and Autism. How easy would it be to eliminate just gluten to make your life healthier, live longer, and increase your quality of life? I am thankful I did!

This is me, today at school. Love my top! But those red pants make me look and feel like MC Hammer! They are a size too big but I had nothing else to wear! I need to do some shopping!!
