Okay, today is the 3rd day of my new life. I've been eating within the suggested ranges (well, yesterday I went a little over, but still better than my old habits), and have not had a single unhealthy food. It's amazing how quickly I'm feeling better.
I am gluten intolerant. I learned this on Monday, so I've been working on becoming an "instant expert" on GF eating. So far I don't mind it too much. The first difficult moment for me was yesterday afternoon, when a coworker, a dear sweet gentleman, gave me a blackberry pie that his sister had made for me. I had mentioned around Christmastime that it was my favorite pie and that I hadn't had one in years, since the aunt who used to make them for me passed away. I had to actually turn down one of my favorite things in the world! But, I was good and gave it all away to other people. My husband suggested that I should have had just a small piece, but that is a slippery slope for me. I'd rather have none than just a tiny taste. Then this morning a gentleman tried to give me a fun size 3 Musketeers. Without even thinking I said, "Thank you, but I can't have that." So, I guess that means I'm committed now!
I'll be going to Earth Fare tomorrow because I am determined to find a gluten-free pizza that I will enjoy. I've never tried one before, but there's got to be something out there, right? If necessary I will make one from scratch, but I would be very pleased to find one pre-made that actually tastes like pizza. Wish me luck!
