I was close....

I began SP when I turned 39 and wanted to lose 35 - 40 lb in a year. I lost 25 or so and was happy with that. Well, I ended up regaining it all. I can tell my age is starting to affect metabolism as I eat less than I used to but still manage to gain. From August on I was religious with the Slim in 6 workout program (great workouts!!!) but even with 6 day a week workouts nothing budged. It's time to change something else.

The past 2 years I started having allergic reactions ...

From August on I was religious with the Slim in 6 workout program (great workouts!!!) but even with 6 day a week workouts nothing budged. It's time to change something else.

The past 2 years I started having allergic reactions to chemicals in certain shampoos and skincare/makeup products. I had been wondering if being Vitamin D deficient might have something to do with it all. My sister has Celiac disease and kept suggesting maybe I had some gluten sensitivities. I have NONE of the symptoms she did except the Vitamin D thing. It was suggested to me to simply try to reduce or go gluten free to see what that might do and that was how I stumbled upon the 17DD. It seemed like something I could give a go. You can do anything for 17 days, right? That and the reduction in gluten might give me some insight. Might not either but if it works who cares? I will be relearning to eat clean and in a way that my body deserves. I mean I go all out using vegan haircare and special natural skincare products so I don't have reactions - shouldn't I treat every morsel that enters my body the same way? Here goes!!!

Thanks so much for your comment on my blogg "A Gluten Challenge". After reading your post, it helped me a lot. I also have a vitamin D deficiency. I even have low bone density - which I have had since I was in my 30's. The doctor's have no explanation. I found out about it when I broke my collar bone from rolling over in my bed one night. I was asleep, just changing position, and yes - my collar bone broke! That's when I found out I had bone density issues, and very low vitamin D. I have the "G Free Diet" - it's a great book.

Thanks for posting that recipe. I made a chicken chili in the past and everyone liked it. I was trying to figure out what to make for tomorrow so I think I'll try your recipe since I have all the ingredients. emoticon
