Life has changed for me. It just hasn’t changed for me, it also has changed for Tony too. I have found out and has been confirmed that I have celiac disease. I am okay with the news because I can finally start getting healthy. I know what is making me sick all the time. I’m tired of feeling weak, time to start feeling strong!
Now, the doctor also said my thyroid is also very high, but she said once the weight comes off, that will ease up as well. But with that being high, it will be hard to lose weight. But I’ve been eating right and will start exercising on my days off. It is a start! It’s more than what I do now.
What the awesome thing about this change in my life, is that I have great support around me. Tony made dinner last night for us, all gluten/wheat free. He made chicken and rice. He spiced the chicken up good, and everything was great. I am happy that I can have the foods I love, but just with different sides.
Another thing that I have been doing this past week, is leaving the fast food out of my diet. I can’t depend fast food anymore. It’s literally killing my insides. When you eat fast food every day, it is something that you depend on. It’s like a drug. You depend on it, because it makes you feel like yourself. I know it’s only been a week, but I feel so much better without the fast food.
At work has been difficult for foods though. I will tell you that for snacks I have been eating carrots and grapes. (My two favorite things in the world!) At work, they give us free snacks when we hit our numbers, the snacks that they give are chocolate, chips, ect… I know on my first day, I picked up a kitkat bar, and gave it away. I had my grapes and my carrots to depend on.
This disease will not define me. It will only make me healthy into the person I want to become.
I will be weighing in on Friday to see if I lost any weight with changing how I eat.
Soon to be Mrs. 🙂
