1-29-2017 Played around with grain-free for a year, but never cut out the sugar. Chocolates, Toffees, Trail Mixes. Did not gain a pound, or lose, but became almost diabetic.
I've been sugar and grain free since the 7th of January. Lost 14 lbs in 3 weeks, and dropped my blood glucose by 30 points.

10-3-2015: After 1.5 years of a totally sedentary job my weight and waist enlarged. But on Labor Day 2015, I had an epiphany, after having a severe allergic reaction... I found the Wheat Belly book, and my life changed. In 1 month, I lost 10 lbs without trying. I just cut out all grains and sugars and artificial foods. Just wanted to update my page to show people, there is hope. You just have to figure out that WHEAT is your killer.

    I liked what I read and what I saw and would like to be friends. Hope you are game to the idea. Is it safe to assume from your screen name that you are from Texas? Either way, you are an Aquarius and so am I! Hope to get to know you better and support you in your weight loss journey. emoticon

    hi! Merry Xmas, Happy New Year, Romantic Valentine's Day, Happy Easter (or Passover, whichever), a well deserved Mother's Day, and a wonderful Memorial Day!

    Not sure I have caught them all but I figure I owe you a number of greetings!

    Thanks for not forgetting me even though I "disappeared" there for a while. You are a true friend.

    I don't have much time to "talk" right now since I'm getting ready for work, but I'll touch base with you soon!
    Love ya!
