Journey to Raediance
I made it day 10 and I am so happy I did. I feel such an amazing sense of peace, contentment, happiness,,, I told DH this morning that I feel ALIVE for the first time in so long. I will definitely be able to take this experience with me and, I hope, use it to stay on track but also to get back on track if ever I need to. I didn't lose as much weight as I had been hoping but I feel like so much more important things have happened. I look smaller, my clothes fit better and I haven't experienced the excruciating stomach and joint pains that have been my life for so long now. I truly suspect that I have celiac but since I don't have health insurance and don't really do doctors... I am going to trust my body for now- it does not like gluten and it very much likes being gluten-free. Perhaps that is the biggest lesson here- I don't have to be 'perfect' in the future,,, but wheat products just aren't ever going to be a part of my life ever again. I never want to feel like that again and knowing (again, no official diagnosis but my body just knows!) that it is like poison to me makes it a lot easier to give up-- I associate gluten with PAIN. Raw foods is so important to me- it is so healing and so instinctively 'right' for me! Here's to progress! I'll post more when I get back from California!
