a bit lighter

I have a tiny bit of good news to share: I have dropped 8 pounds. Through a healthier diet, more fruits and vegetables, and 5 workouts a week I managed to easily shed eight pounds. I can't fit into certain jeans (too big!) and I have more energy than I can remember. I feel good, and plan to lose 35 total pounds. Wish me luck!

That's is wonderful Jenna! I began my wheat free diet 4 weeks ago and have lost 5 lbs. You have me beat! I feel so much better already. Even 5 lbs. will make your jeans fit better. Keep it up. I will be. I want to loose 20 lbs. but am doing this to be healthy not only for weight loss.

Since we moved to our dream homestead a few months ago, my wife and I have both noticeably thinned. My wife said, "Hey, we found a great diet plan, and it only cost us a couple hundred thousand dollars."

You seem determined & just know you can do it.

Yay! It's a little battle once you get started, but once you start to feel better, and coincidentally look better, it becomes a fun challenge to see how far you can go and how good you can feel. Keep up the good work!!!

Also, don't know if your interested, but like bree, I have gone off wheat(gluten) for the last two months, and have decided to stick with it. It's a little difficult making the transition, but I feel SOOO much better it's amazing. My mind has cleared immensely (I always felt like I had a fog in my head), and my extreme lethargy has all but vanished! I used to me so tired and felt like my muscles had no energy to move let alone get anything done...after the first 2-3 weeks off of wheat(gluten) I felt normal again. It's worth a try right?
If you up for the challenge try going 4 weeks off gluten and see if you can tell a difference. :)

Wishing you luck! Hefting those hay bayles can't hurt either.

Congrats! The renewed energy from a lifestyle/diet change really makes you want to keep with it.
I went off wheat, corn, potato, refined sugar, and cow dairy last July because of some major health problems. I've never had so little fatigue and it's wonderful!! Luckily, I don't seem to have a gluten problem, so I replaced my wheat with spelt. White spelt tastes no different from white wheat and it would seem that you can do anything with spelt that you can with wheat. Our homemade spelt breads are yummy and don't exhaust me like wheat used to.

Congrats! A few weeks ago the wife and I started a diet as well. Jenny Creig. In the past 8 weeks or so, I lost a total of 35 lbs, and plan to lose about another 95.
