Welcome! I'm glad you are already experiencing the first benefits of this lifestyle. Looking forward to hearing how these continue for you.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

I have always been a calorie counter, portion measurer as well. I am also feeling more confident about "easing up" a bit.
I think that for now I still have to be aware, but I am definitely feeling a little free-er (sp?) to enjoy eating again without being scared to not have measured and portioned. lol

After losing weight the 'traditional' way - counting calories and measuring portions - I have found that the weight creeps back on, unless I am totally diligent.
Reading 'Wheat Belly' has changed all that - I'm on Week 1 and have noticed my cravings have really dropped off and I can see there's a huge connection with eating wheat/high carbs and not being able to keep weight loss off(at least for me!)
It has been an eye-opener to eliminate wheat and other high-carbs, while at the same time eating alot of healthy oils, nuts, cheese, eggs etc - it's a bit scary to 'let-go' of the idea that the fats are not the issue!
I have not calorie counted at all, and have lost about 3 lbs, feel very light and have very even energy levels all day!! Amazing!
