Many people have the misconception that by being on a gluten free diet you will lose weight. Sorry to disappoint, but that is not a fact and sadly, I am living proof of that. Being gluten free is a lifestyle not a weight loss plan. For the last couple of years, my weight has been on my mind. From the moment I wake up, to the moment I fall asleep it's there, like a dark cloud that won't go away. But, I can't seem to motivate myself to actually do anything about it. I see other people dropping weight and getting in shape and I just sigh and wish that my jelly belly would just disappear. Why oh why does it have to be so hard?!? Is it that my metabolism has slowed down the older I get? Or do I give into my cravings more often than not? (Probably the latter) I've managed to find all the fattening treats that are gf so that I can indulge in my cravings without getting sick. But guess what? I am sick. Sick of my chubbiness, that is! I keep trying to remember the feeling of being slim...when I could wear a bikini and felt ok about it...I want that again! Is it possible? I'll be 39 years old here in a few short months, that would be the new 19, right??? On top of that, my brother is getting married in Vegas, Vegas people! We know what that means, the place where skin is in! I have 2 1/2 short months to slim down! So please, send me lots of motivation...I'll need it! And as my niece Kama* says, I'm going to "get my sexy back" gluten free style!
