The great wheat debate

I posted before that my naturopath told me to give up wheat, sugar, and cola. I've done pretty good. I've avoided wheat, avoided sugar, and only had two cans of diet Coke in the past 3 weeks. That's pretty good considering that I used to drink 4 cans per day.

So initially I lost 9 lbs in the first week doing this and them went up and down for a week which really pissed me off. This week my body is seeming to get it again and the losses are starting again.

In the last 3 weeks I've lost a total
of 16 lbs. I really want to lose another 10 by the end of June. Not that 25 lbs is nearly enough, but when I see the rE and they start in about my weight and bmi at least I can tell them that I've lost that weight so far. It's frustrating because I'm on a really high dose of Provera which basically causes weight gain - it seems so counter-productive. The doctor tells you to lose weight and then gives you drugs that cause weight gain.

But for now, I'll take the 16!



16 pounds is awesome! You are making great headway and I'm super proud. Giving up anything is hard, especially wheat. I don't know about you, but all I want to do when sad and pumped full of fake hormones is eat bread and chocolate. Major kudos to you for sticking with it :)


16 pounds is a great start. Be super proud of that.


Whoo-hoo! Go you!

I really admire your willpower in sticking with the no wheat, no sugar diet. I'm a total carb-aholic and I start to lose the will to live when I don't have bread. :)


Wow! 16 pounds! You have a lot of willpower. I'm thinking of you.
