4 Months And Getting Easier
0

7 posts in this topic

Today is four months gluten free for me and I find that over the last few weeks I barely notice any more. I enjoy my gluten free pasta and bread. Yesterday I finally found Snyder's gluten free pretzels (on sale for $2!!!) and they're so good that even my husband is a fan of them. He's not only a gluten eater but is quite possibly the world's pickiest eater. I'm eating more fruits and veggies and generally feeling a whole lot better, even though I know I have a long way to go to feeling good.

Yesterday my best friend, who is practically a sister, got her masters in accounting. I was pretty excited to go, which was helped along by the fact that the ceremony took place a few miles farther up the freeway than the gluten free bakery I love. Afterward I was for the first time invited to a restaurant I knew that I couldn't eat at. Even a month ago I may have bowed out, instead I stopped at the bakery and picked up a sandwich and some cupcakes and headed off to meet everyone. I enjoyed myself and got some satisfaction with the way everyone looked on with jealousy as I enjoyed a positively divine key lime cupcake while they all had ice cream and fruit for dessert.

If I do get some gluten I have an immediate and violent reaction, but that's becoming more and more rare these days as I get the hang of things. I still screw up, but I don't let it get me down any more. There are still occasional times I feel like I might sell my soul for a donut but it passes quickly instead of making me sulk. I just wanted to share that it gets easier and maybe this will help give someone some hope that even if changes aren't drastic and even if the road is long, there are small milestones that can remind us we're doing the right thing.

Glad things are getting easier. I am approaching three months gluten free myself. I find myself eating healthier too. I still have those moments when I would do anything for a donut or chocolate cake but I have found those days are less and less each passing day.

I'm so happy to see you're doing better! You were having a hard time for a while. :D

Your post should help encourage others that are going through a rough patch.

I am so happy to hear that things are going better for you, hon. :)

You were having a rough time for a while. .

Good for you!! Going out and enjoying the company of others is what life is all about. We need to be careful, yes, but we do not need to be secluded.

Hang in there. You're doing GREAT!

It gets better every month that passes.

In time, I think WE will be the norm--- and the GEs (gluten eaters) will be the minority. ;)
