- I gained back the 2 lbs I lost (story of my life lately, I gain and lose 2 lbs every other week). I still feel bloated most afternoons, so it must be more than wheat that bothers me.
- I am thinking mandarin oranges, or maybe just fruit in general, or maybe my afternoon snack of nuts??
- A friend also warned me that rice flour causes bloating, and almost all bread, muffins and pasta sold at choices is made from rice flour......that is where I first stocked up on wheat free products, so I will avoid those this week as well.
- my shoulder aches and pains have not changed
On the positive side, My appetite is less, I don't snack as much....so why did I gain weight? well I never used to eat handfuls of nuts in unlimited quantities, or carbs like rice and potatoes at every dinner, it is bad to tell me that I can have unlimited quantities of anything I guess! (Oh yeah, I did find really good cookies too)
I am not giving up, I said I would try 30 days so I will, but I am going to write down everything I eat this week and see when the bloating shows up, and maybe watch my portions sizes as it would be nice to loose weight while I am doing this.
