- migraines are 0-1 a month instead of a few days a week
- stomach flattened out noticeably
- lost 10-15 lbs
- some new hair growth
- less muscle cramps at night

On the other hand I also have:

After the first week there was noticeably less diarrhea/stomach cramps, and no more migraines!!! The migraines had developed to multiple times per week, and now I haven't had one since that first gluten-free week. I still have the diarrhea, but it's much less frequent. It used to be multiple times per day for over a year, and now it's only a few times per week.
After a month I was able to eat dairy again in small amounts - although that is bothering me again now. Not sure why.
After two months the anxiety was noticeably relieved, but it came back again after a glutening about a month ago and it stuck around for weeks. That anxiety is my nemesis.
Also around two months my blurry vision began to improve. This wasn't something I noticed right away so it could have happened sooner. I renewed my drivers license in March, not long before going gluten free, and almost failed the vision test. I knew my eyes were sometimes blurry, but this was a wake up call. Now my vision is absolutely fine. I can read the Netflix descriptions again without straining my eyes!
I still have some other symptoms, like cramps, pains, and balance issues, but I'm checking them off one at a time.

no more vomiting
my skin has been clearing up, but still has some issues
i've maintained and lost a tad bit more weight (not a bad thing, i'm nearly to what i should be though)
My knees only hurt when a storm is coming in or if i've walked to much
my axiety has went down majorly
I feel good and can generally go from 6am to about 11pm without a nap (when i don't have a stomach but)
i can concentrate better (yay for good grades!)
My GERD is now under better control (i can't help but wonder if there was gluten in the pills i was taking).

I just realized that I went all through August without aching feet. That hasn't happened for the last 5 years until this one. I also suffered from plantar fasheitis, but haven't had that this summer. I did have some when I went grain free.
