Down A Few Pounds

Posted by nvsmom, 05 July 2012 · 140 views

I've been gluten-free for just over a week and I'm down about 4lbs. Kind of a nice bonus. If I stopped eating a bowl of popcorn in the evenings, I'd probably be down even more. :)

I'll cut the popcorn to once a week and see if I can't take advantage of my damaged gut to lose a few pounds before it heals and it becomes harder to lose weight... like everyone else. LOL I guess this is the benefit of being celiac: easier to lose weight... for a while.

It probably helps that I'm not trying to replace gluten foods with gluten-free products (except lara bars, mmmm). I've just been eating more fruits and veggies instead.

My headache is gone today. No sign of it. Yeah! And I can say for certain that my shoulder is greatly improved. I can lift it above my head now. It's still weak but most of that bone deep ache is gone. :)

It's gratifying to feel some improvements in the first week. That will make it easier to keep going. I hope the improvements are slow and gradual and last until I am really used to eating this way. LOL
