I am starting my journey again on January 14, 2014. Been here before but I am convinced this time will be different.

I am at my heaviest weight ever (260 lbs) and I am not getting any younger and I am tired of feeling so lethargic, heavy, sad and not good enough.

I am a CARB-Addict or I suffer from Gluten sensitivity. Not sure what my real issue is but consuming bread makes me want more, it makes me crave chocolate and once I consume it, I want to go back to bed.

This time around I have tried to limit gluten to a serving every couple of days. Also I am trying to not binge, or eat emotionally. I want to feel more in control. I believe my body cannot handle much gluten, what a discovery.

Discovering something so simple is miraculous. Only by process of elimination have I felt there is hope for me. Its not just a sign of will power.

I have just started cooking within the last 6 months for the 1st time in my life. I am enjoying it and its keeping me fueled. Not to mention I am able to cook for my husband.

I want to be a better person, to develop self-confidence, to feel attractive and to shop anywhere for clothes, to feel sexy and really comfortable in my body. In addition I want to be healthy so that I can be around for many years to come.

I like the feeling I feel after I work out but I am often not making it a priority. My first concern is get my food habits under control then to add more activity as I slim down and feel more comfortable.

I suffer from migraines, I have fibromyalgia, some days its a chore to get out of bed but I want quality of life more than anything. I want to experience good days, its been 3 years since I lost any weight and that was the last time I remember having a good day.

Follow me on my journey. I want to hear about your struggles, your triumphs and share the knowledge we have together.

    Hi Kimberley! I know what you mean ... I love the bad for me carbs but they certainly do not like me! I've been gluten free for about 35 days now. Migraines are much less intense. I see light at the end of the tunnel ... One day, no migraines! Wishing you the same! I know that the cravings have essentially vanished and that is a miracle for me!

    Keep getting better!

    - Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you. –Jesus (Matthew 7:7)
    - Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. –Charles Swindoll
    - If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced. –Vincent Van Gogh
    - The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself–the invisible battles inside all of us–that’s where it’s at. –Jesse Owens
    - If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. –Tony Robbins
    - Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. –Mark Twain
    - If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. –Booker T. Washington
    - The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. –Mark Twain

    The salt cave I went to is located at our local spa at a hotel we have in the area. It is a very nice spa. I live in Binghamton, NY and the spa is at Traditions at the Glen. You could google it to see if there is anything available in your area.
