Still going strong!

Down to 156 lbs from 162.5.

Not missing wheat, gluten or carbs at all.

Walking lots...I did over 10,000 yesterday.

So proud of myself.

Wheat Belly

These photos were taken on March 20th:

I am not pregnant.

But I look it.

And I feel absolutely sick about it.

I weighed 162.5 lbs.  I am 5' 4" tall. My measurements that day were:

Neck: 15 inches
Waist: 43 inches
Hips: 43 inches

How disgusting that my hips and waist are the same measurement?  I am absolutely mortified.

But the day after I took those photos, I started the Wheat Belly Diet.  I decided that I no longer wanted to look pregnant.  I decided that March 21st would be the day that everything would change.  I would lose my disgusting belly and get healthy.

It has been a week.  I feel fantastic!  Of course, a week is nowhere near enough to lose the huge gut I have, but I can tell you several things:

1.  My belly is nowhere near as bloated and hard as it was one week ago;
2.  I have suffered from IBS for as long as I can remember, sometimes having up to 10 bowel movements, mostly diarreah, in one day.  I have not had diarreah in 3 days;
3.  I have lost 5 lbs
4.  I do not feel hungry...AT ALL;
5.  I can still eat all the meat and cheese that I want and I can still have my beloved wine;
6. I feel HUMAN again.  No more brain fog, no more exhaustion in the afternoons.

I am amazed.

I bought a FitBit, which arrived yesterday.  So far today, I have walked over 4,000 steps!  I spent 15 minutes of my lunch walking around the lobby.  I loved it.

I will take some more photos tonight when I get home and I will take some measurements to compare to the horrendous ones I started with last week.

I won't be sharing my blog publicly until I am done.  My goal is to get down to 145 lbs.  Once I am there, I will go for more.  I think my ultimate goal is about 135.  We'll see.  But I will tell you, I am done with wheat, gluten and sugar.  I've never felt better in my life and it's only been a week!

Imagine how I will feel in a MONTH! Pin It

Not much to report

Life is chugging along at an alarming rate.  It seems that time is flying by so quickly these days.  However, the winter that never ends continues to plague us.  We have enjoyed two GLORIOUS days of warm (up to 9 degrees Celcius) over the past two days, but tomorrow is looking like a January day with a temperature of -15C and up to 15 cms of snow.  Sigh...

Work is great.  I have the greatest colleagues and employees in the world.  They make coming to work a pleasure!

The boys are all home on March Break.  Boy Oneder and Middleman are just hanging around the house all week.  Threepeat is at a trampoline camp for the week.  He is LOVING it so far!!

Hubster is loving his new job.  He has to commute downtown on the train every day, which makes for a confusing schedule with Boy Oneder dropping him off and picking him up most days.  But, we are certainly blessed with this opportunity!

Dudley goes for grooming on March 25th.  He is a little ball of energy and is the most loving, gentle, patient dog in the world.  He takes such "abuse" from Julian (I mean never-ending love, not hurt) and never snaps or bites.  Rosie is going to be 13 next month.  She pretty much just hangs around these days.  She's a bit of a crochety old girl now, so we just let her do her thing and leave her alone unless she comes to us for loving.

I have several books on the go, as well as a paint-by-number and a cross-stitch.  I am hoping to have the time to finish some of them over the next couple of weeks!

I hope all is well in your world.  If you are here, thanks for checking in. :) Pin It
