I feel like I'm settling in really well to my new lifestyle. I feel really good and I'm not having any problems at all with sticking to the new way of eating. I thought giving up gluten would be hard; turns out that's just not true. It appears that grocers and restaurants are friendly to the gluten-intolerant. It's still an adjustment, but I cannot say that I've suffered. The plus side is that I feel better than I have in a long, long time AND I'm losing weight--all while never feeling deprived. Oddly enough, I have not had one single craving for sweets either. I've had candy bars, pie and girl scout cookies offered to me and I have declined each time with no angst. Crazy--that's not typical for me. I guess eating a healthy, balanced diet suppresses my sweet tooth somehow!
