Green Artist Goes Gluten Free

For years I've lived in pain, felt sick all the time, I simply was not a well girl. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 10 years ago.
Three years ago I found out I am allergic to wheat. After much research I learned as much as I could about gluten, Celiac disease, and all that it causes. I decided to stop eating not just wheat but all gluten. Shortly after abstaining from gluten my life completely changed! I now awake without muscle aches. I no longer feel like I have the flu ...

I decided to stop eating not just wheat but all gluten. Shortly after abstaining from gluten my life completely changed! I now awake without muscle aches. I no longer feel like I have the flu all the time. The GI dysfunction has stopped. ..........
Life is good.

Unfortunately, I did hurt my back and am now in physical therapy for it. The medication I've been on for this injury has caused extreme weight gain. I've lost some of it and I'm very happy about that, but I still want to loose a little more. Once I reach my goal I may decide I want to loose a little more. I'm starting to exercise more, so it just depends on how much I like me.

Sorry - yeah, I was very hungry and very bitchy by the time I got home yesterday. We went to Brixx last night for dinner and I was good - I had chicken and soy cheese on my pizza instead of the greasy pepperoni and whole-milk mozzarella. Not a huge fan of soy cheese after last night but at least I can be proud of myself for making a good decision.

I want a goal weight bar like everybody else has! Where are those at?

And I noticed that under the picture of you and Nate, you put the wrong date of his birth. It's May 12th, not March. :)

Love ya back! (and I love my dress!! :)

Hi and welcome to Spark People! It's the best thing I've ever done for myself and I feel great. Thank you for sharing your story - I have a dear friend diagnosed with fibro and I believe her dietary choices do have an effect on how she feels. Wishing you all the best on your journey. Blessings, Cyndy
