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
