Being Tam: A month Gluten Free
Thursday, October 11, 2012
Well its been one whole month today since I went gluten free. The results in 1 month are as follows: 15 lbs lost, increased energy, better mood (i still need nerve support with Valerian raising three boys lol), HUGE decrease in BP (went from pre-hypertensive to a VERY healthy low), sleeping better, my cholesterol levels are WNL, and now it has become so easy that I don't really even think about it anymore other than checking ingredients if I am unsure on something. IT IS AMAZING that I ever thought it would be just too hard to be gluten free. I underestimated my ability to overcome an addiction. Thanks Alexandra Porter for encouraging me ALL THESE YEARS and loving me all the same every time i failed or each time I told you I couldn't do it. You never gave up on me! You changed my life. Both of my sisters have been driving forces on my way to a healthier life. I love my big sisters! My husband has been supportive too, and Im so thankful for everyone in my life. Even to my darling mom in law who is mindful of my diet now and cooks for me gluten free. I AM LOVED. And of course I cant give glory to anyone without giving it to my God, who gives me strength when I am weak.
Youd think that this is me speaking of some major addiction like alcohol or drugs... but this was my addiction and super hard to beat. And I am proud of it!
