I go back to the Dr. this Friday to find out if I am indeed positively Gluten-Intolerant (which I'm pretty sure I am). He'll run another round of blood work, take blood pressure. Since cutting it out, I'm allready down 12 pounds (in my 40lb. weight-loss goal). I've been trying to work out every single day (and almost have). I'm taking my blood pressure pills every morning, which are gluten free & following a pretty strict gluten free diet.
I tried my first gluten free pizza last Friday (I had been craving pizza so badly) and didn't think anyone around here did it, but they do... So first, I found this site: Gluten Free Registry, which in turn led me to: Plymouth House of Pizza!! Now, I promised you all that I would be honest...So, I will not say that this was the best pizza I've ever tasted, though my husband really liked his (Gluten-filled...lol) pizza & my two boys certainly enjoyed it (though they also ate some of mine, so they're not exactly discerning, or finnicky judges). It did at least fulfill my craving for a pizza and probably helped me to not crave one for quite awhile. I don't mean that in a negative way, but it was not the same; it didn't make me want to run out & spend money to get another one right away, which is a good thing. I was extremely happy & greatful to have it & will certainly order from them the next time I have a craving!
It feels very good to know that restaurants have become so much more accomodating. It is appreciated.
So, today, I leave you with this quote: "When someone asks you a question, answer him or her sincerely, and when you are not asked, do not force your teaching upon others."

After recenly discovering that I am gluten intolerant (do no have Celiac disease, though I will get tested for it), at this point we have strictly confirmed the intolerance. I have started a lot of research & even cleaner eating than what I was before. And I feel great & am shedding pounds. In just under 2 weeks I have allready lost 10lbs. Here is a great article, I have placed the link to. Gluten Factsheet #2
