I am officially Gluten-Free

Ok I’m not sure it’s official. There might be some contamination here and there.

But, I’m trying my best. My insane cravings for sugar and bread are gone. I’m back down to a normal caloric intake for my size! I feel wonderful and I really think the migraines I had recently were because I was letting go of the gluten. I’m not sure.

But, I feel so amazing. I’m sure it will be a process, but I feel amazing. We went gluten-free for our sons in the past. But, I still ate it when I was out or at school. I would down a pack of mini-pitas and hummus when I wasn’t home. Ugh.

I’m not puffy.

I’m not insane.

I’m not craving chocolate bars.

You will probably here more in the future about this. But, I had to share.

Another migraine

I have a migraine again. I have had one almost every day this past week. Could it be the weather? I broke down and I’m having a cup of coffee. It seems to work better than Advil, aspirin, etc.etc. My blood sugar readings seem just fine. I really can’t tie it in to anything except for the birth of our last son.

I want to vomit. I want to remove my brain and put it in the fridge for a day. Too graphic? It’s how I feel.


Tea, weightloss,

I love tea. Unlike coffee I can drink it all day long. It doesn’t intervere with my sleep patterns. It doesn’t leave my tummy upset and me running to the bathroom. Plus, there are all kinds of flavors and herbs. Since, my love affair with tea has begun I have yet to find the perfect tea pot. But, now I wonder if I have. If a beautiful red one good enough to make it own my wishlist?

I must loose weight. I feel so out of control. I feel blah. I’m hungry all day long. I want to sleep till an hour before noon. I’m considering trying Gluten Free again. I don’t know if I can. According to Prevention to get back to my ideal weight, why I should be consuming 1354 calories per day. What am I going to eat on that budget? I wish I was taller or just a wee bit less lazy. I’m shooting for around 1500 at this point. But, it’s so easy to go over that.
