Wheat free – it’s harder than you think, but easier than sugar free. No bread, no chips, nothing with wheat – takes a little getting used to. But I’m starting to get the hang of it. The place I eat lunch at has switched to gluten free, wheat free wraps for me. I’ve bought meat to cook and eat when I get home from work. The hard part is staying away from the sugar.
Lord knows I love my sugar.
I’ve started with not drinking soft drinks, and drinking more water. Although today I had a diet lime ginger ale, and it was good. But I didn’t have three a day each day this week! I’ve also added fruit to my diet. Snacks are either my protein bar from Melaleuca or an apple or some dried fruit. Beats a candy bar, potato chips or some other junk food. I’m also not eating when I’m not hungry. Just because I used to eat when I got home, doesn’t mean I have to do that now. In fact, I’ve been having a shake once and awhile!
So the entire thing boils down to … baby steps. Just baby steps – do a little at a time, do what you can and keep believing in yourself.
