I'm making myself a weight loss thread. I need to keep myself accountable and doing it in public may help. LOL
When I first went gluten-free in June of 2012, I lost some weight. I was mildly overweight but I carried it pretty well on my 5'8" frame. I think I was around 175-180lbs when I was diagnosed. In the first few months lost a good 15 lbs without even trying, and was a happy size 10-12. I was eating junk too because I felt a bit deprived - my way of showing myself that I wasn't hard done by.
My weight went up and down by a few pounds over the next year but then I started on some mild steroids and my weight shifted up a tiny bit. Then at almost 2 years gluten-free my steroid dose increased for a bit and then my doctor stopped one med cold turkey. My weight went quickly right back up to close to 180. Yuck.
I am also guessing that this weight gain may partially due to my healing. I think after 2 years gluten-free, my intestines are absorbing more food than before because I really have not increased my food intake that much... I think. LOL
I am weaning off the last steroid and wanting to lose a good 30 lbs.
This week I am getting rid of junk food that I would eat, taking measurements and making my plan. I think Halloween will be a good day to cut sugar and gluten-free treats from my life. I will make some changes!
I'll check back in here and record my progress periodically. Any comments are always welcomed.
