What a change!

I have had a real life changing three weeks (and one day).

I have had some really deep thoughts about the changes I am seeing in myself as well.

All my life, I have searched for happiness.  I have had moments of happiness that are quickly replaced with depression...sometimes DEEP depression.  But my underlying feeling has always been sadness.  That deep, long-standing sadness made me a very difficult person to be around most of the time.  I snapped at Hubster and the kids, I avoided friends because I (1) couldn't be bothered to be with them; and (2) I was afraid I would lose them.  I mean, who wants to be around a miserable, negative person?

I read books and listened to pod-casts about positive thinking.  I saw a therapist or two.  I would have a short period of, not usually happiness, but just non-sadness.

When I started the Wheat Belly Diet, it was to lose the 8 month pregnant belly I was carrying around.  I had that "OMG!" moment and realized how disgusted I was with myself.  In the three weeks I have followed my new lifestyle, I have lost 9 lbs and my belly is much less swollen.  But...the biggest change I have seen in myself is that I am HAPPY!  For the first time ever, I am truly happy.  I look forward to each day instead of dreading it.  I WANT to be with people.  I smile lots. I am truly, truly happy.

I have lost some weight before, but never felt happy.  I 100% believe that wheat made me depressed.  Sounds nutty, I know.  But I think it affected my brain somehow.  Now that I am wheat-free, I don't snap anymore.  I hug my family more.  I actually kinda want to be around them!

I cannot say enough about this lifestyle.  I am a changed woman.  I want to sing it from the rooftops!!  I want EVERYONE to feel the way I feel!!  And the added bonus is that I am losing weight and not missing out on ANYTHING!

My goodness....I am simply amazed! Pin It
