8th Week Gluten Free

Recommended Posts

So it's been about two months now. I could discuss at great length the quality of my BMs, but suffice it to say things are great.

I'm no longer a slave to the bathroom. I don't have to worry on that hour long drive to work, "am I gonna make it?".....I can go on an hour long run and not get the runs...

Overall I basically feel better. In lots of little ways that are hard to quantify, with maybe even a bit of my imagination thrown in there.

My mood is more upbeat. When I get down, it doesn't last. I have more energy, more libido. Even when crappy things happen, I continue feel more upbeat about life. I don

Yes, it does become second nature :D

I think your post should be required reading for all those new to the diet who would like to know what to expect. There's no telling how many you have helped by sharing your "journey" with us.

Jerry, you are a true success story! B)

It's always great to see the "product" looking more healthy. :) I just had a big relapse in mine (due to eating corn... bleh!) and had to go looking for my stash of pre-moistened towelettes again.

I hear ya--I recently thought I could get away with Cool Whip (of all things). Between the corn and the casein, it wasn't at all pretty :ph34r:

Eating Gluten Free has become more automatic. It just feels right to avoid the bread and the breading and eat the fresh stuff anyway. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what to eat and although I've lost about 5 lbs now, I'm not starving. It never bothered me much to eat steak and potato's, I have a great excuse now.

Jerry,

As the weeks, months and years go by you will not even comprehend how to eat anyway but Gluten Free. I am glad to here that your health has improved.

Tonight I rewarded myself with a hefty helping of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Gluten Free of

course. It was every bit as satisfying as any gluten containing food I've ever had. :P yum

Dear JerryK,

You deserve the treat! You have earned it! ;) MMMMM! Mint Chocolate Chip! I miss that. I cannot have casein though. :( Maybe someone makes a safe version somewhere. I should check the healthfood store!

Dear L.A.,

:lol: Yep, he seems to have his "crap" together!

Thanks for the warning! You just made me crack up and spit coffee all over my monitor. Trust me, if I'm gonna take the time to look at pictures on the internet, ratemypoo.com isn't even on my list;)

Victoria's secret maybe...poo pictures...I don't think so.

Dear Jerry,

At work huh? :lol: Yeah, it might not be good if your boss caught you on that site! I know there are a lot crazy things on the net, but that one takes the cake! You might want to be concerned about your brother considering he knows about the site. :P Just a thought.

Dear jerseyangel,

Okay, I will scratch off your son as a possible date. :lol: Does it scare you that he is going to that site? It would me if I were his mom! Everyone has their hobbies, though. Some are just more unusual I suppose! Hmmm...maybe that band the Butthole Surfers started that site.

:lol: Too funny! Naw--he's a normal, hard-working guy. Owns his own home, has a great girlfriend, and normal hobbies.

I think this falls into the category of farting and belching--you know, things guys somehow find hilarious ;)

I am concerned. He says they have "names". He was particularly impressed with "The Hindenburg".

My brother is one sick puppy :lol:
