So, first up, I really need to do an end of month review for my 12 goals… but that is the subject of another post.
I had already decided I was going gluten and sugar free, before I got my (almost) official coeliac diagnosis yesterday. But after what my doctor said, there is no way I’ll be going back to gluten. The real challenge for me this month, is going to be going sugar free.
My sugar addiction is still alive and kicking. I was sugar-free for several weeks at the beginning of this year, and have somewhat slipped off the wagon since then, but overall my sugar consumption is less than it has been in previous years.
It’s a hard one to kick, and I know the cravings will be bad, but I will get through it.
May is going to be the month where I start the long process of healing my body after a lifetime of eating gluten. It’s going to be a time of nourishing food that will hopefully begin to repair any intestinal damage, and make bloating and pain a distant memory.
I am looking forward to managing those cravings and coming out the other side.
For the first time in my life, I feel that I can finally proceed with a dietary approach that I know is right for me.
It is at once a relief and a challenge. And I am so grateful to have finally found the answer to the feeling of something just not being right.
Peace and love to you all,
