Being healthy is awesome!
I'm feeling better than I have felt in years.
I'm amazed at how my stomach feels after I eat. It feels so good!
I've recently realized that the crappy feeling I used to get in my stomach after I ate wasn't from overeating. I used to feel miserable after I ate and I would just tell myself that this is what I get for over eating. In reality I probably wasn't over eating nearly as often as I thought. It was just the gluten making me feel sick. It was my poor digestive system struggling to work when it was very likely damaged and not able to function as it should. The more I learn about wheat, the more I believe that it's barely fit for human consumption.
I don't get as hungry as I used to get. I think my digestive system is healing and so I'm probably able to absorb more nutrients from my food. I love food more than ever and am enjoying it more than ever.
I'm just amazed every time I eat. It's amazing how good it feels. My shoulder feels really well. My skin is the healthiest it has ever been. I'm sleeping better. I'm getting the chemicals out of my house and my body. This is officially the healthiest home in which I have ever lived - and it's only going to get better.
I've done some homework and I think that some probiotics might benefit me at this point, so I started taking them today. I'm blessed to live in a town with a well stocked Co-op where I can get healthful food and things like probiotics. I'll just have to wait and see if they seem to make any difference.
As a bonus, I've lost a couple more pounds. I'm in the 220s now - just barely, but still, I'm there.
In the past, when ever I got to this point on the scale, my ex would find a way to sabotage me. When I would get to this point, I weighed less than her and she hated it. Well, she's been out of my life for 4 months now. I lost about 230 pounds of ugliness, hatred, immaturity, neediness, and negativity when she went out the door. That was the best 230 pounds I've ever lost.
This time I will get more and more healthy and the usual road block isn't here to get in my way. I often tell my clients to not be sad to lose someone who makes you sad - and to be really happy to rid yourself of someone who makes you sick.
I'm really happy.
