Going gluten free has truly been one of the best decisions I have made for my health. My weight loss is at a stand-still right now and I'm actually 100% A-ok with this because I had a wicked case of bronchitis and the medications I was put on caused weight gain. I'm "up" 4 pounds but I know it's not a true gain. Even though I've had this minor setback with my weight loss, I'm feeling especially motivated. Being gluten free has allowed me to feel less bloated and look less "puffy" if that makes any sense?
I think right now the most difficult thing I'm seeing in "Pcos world" is women thinking that going gluten free is going to immediately make them lose weight. If you were a carb-a-holic beforehand, yes. It will. That's just how it will go down. However, I was not a carb-a-holic, so therefore it is taking time.
I'm just really thrilled with my progress and the meal selections/variety. It's not difficult at all. And even though I'm not losing in pounds all the time, I'm seeing changes in my body .... literally!
Right now the big thing on my mind is when to TTC for baby number two.
We're thinking next summer ..... we'll see! You know how that goes - "Man plans. God laughs!"
