I am starting over on my Gluten Free Eating! I started in Sept last year and I could tell it was helping with my body's inflammation. My arthritis hands felt much better, not so stiff, and my blood pressure went into the NORMAL RANGE!!!!!!!! My Doctor wanted to start me on Blood Pressure meds and I said no. And I am so glad I told him no, and I was so glad I started eating gluten free……In a matter of only about 15 days, I took my blood pressure, and it was a happy, healthy 117/69…….WOW! I was pleasantly surprised with such a heahly blood pressure for once in my life...
Then Christmas came and With all my family home, we more or less went back to eating regular food. I could feel the difference , my fingers hurt more then, and I didn't check my blood pressure but I know it probably was elevated more too….
Still have a lot of stress in my life right now, but I can't wait for that to go away since I think the stress is here for my lifetime!!!! So I need to get out my Judith Beck books and my cards and get back on track with not trying to eat my stress away! We all know over eating make us feel even more stressed out when we see the scales going up….
But I have stopped that from going up and I only have about 8 to 10 pounds to get down to, so if I take this one day at a time, I know I can achieve my goal …. I did today eating totally gluten free and also in my calorie range for the day. Now all I need to do it to continue to take it a day at a time!!!!! Once I get a few days under my belt, and start to feel the benefits of eating gluten free, I know it becomes easier everyday !
Happy New Year to ALL!!!!!

About 10 days ago I chose to start working very hard at my weight lose journey… I still have the stress issues in my life, but I am changing my attitude to that stress. Eating my way out of the stress was not working and I faced that fact it never will. I decided I needed to take care of myself at the same time I have the stress issues…. So far so good. It has only been about 10 days and I am doing great. I have dropped 2 of those ugly pounds I had gained. But more important to me is working on my "Heart Health" instead….
My Mom died of a heart attack when I was only a very young adult, and as I am growing older, the focus on my heart is becoming more important to me then the number on my scale…I have one grandchild, and the second one is due this Spring…. I want to be here as long as I can to see them and watch them grow up….
I love the Judith Beck Book , Training your Brain to think like a thin Person…. It is a cognitive way of thinking about your weight, but you could use it for other things in your life you want to change…. THis time I have added to the weight lose desire, also my healthy heart desire…. I am working the program and I am going to continue this journey. I am taking it day by day, and building on a string of good days… I am also ok if I choose to eat something on a special occasion is I want…. I can do anything I want if I just keep my silly little brain in the right thinking mode!!! I know I can, and I know I am worth it...

I have been stressed and anxious about a lot of things in my life right now, and am handling these all in the wrong way. I have been eating my way through these issues instead of dealing with the actual issues head on…
I have worked very hard to lose weight. I have lost around 50 pounds . I have done it the right way. I ate healthier and did my treadmill faithfully .. But the last couple of years a few very stressful issues have cross my path with my life journey.. Things that will always be here now. I need to start hard to focus on handling these issues in a better, healthier way…I know this will not be easy.
My first goal is going to be dig out my Judith Beck Book and start retraining my brain to work on handling stressful issues in a healthy way… I know it will not be easy, but I AM WORTH it..It was her book on retraining how we handle things that got the 50 pounds off in the first place…. SO I know the process works for me. I JUST NEED TO DO THE WORK… Not just say I will but DO IT…
So today for me is week 1 of getting seriously back on track, not just saying a want to get back on track, but actually doing the work to really do it…. I have been creeping up the scale little by little so I will be creeping back down the scale and loving myself for doing it…
I know myself, morning I talk big, but late afternoon, I start to fall of my path. Take it day by day, or even hour by hour at the beginning helps me build a foundation for a good healthy week. SO here I go.. I know I can, and I know I am worth it….

I am doing so so for now… My life is so filled with stress right now and I don't see the issues that are giving me stress going away anytime soon.. This is a time in the past I would always turn to food to try to make me happy… It never worked and we all know why it won't work…
But right now I am happy I am maintaining my weight instead of creeping up the ugly scale… I know our weight issues are a journey for life. It is not a station I can arrive at and say, Well I am done with that. I need to be happy and joyful ea ch and every day. I don't have to wait till a get to goal to be happy, I can be happy on my life journey while working on more then one issue at a time….Life is too precious to waste so I choose to enjoy each and every day At any weight I am that day!!!!
