Why Our Family Chose to Go Wheat-Free and Gluten-Free


I waited a month to write this post, because I wasn't sure how long this would go for our family.  I am proud to say that I personally have been wheat-free and gluten-free for a whole month this week with the exception of my son's birthday which made me violently sick, but that's another story altogether.

Okay, so my beautiful 2nd daughter, Suzannah has suffered from eczema since she was a year old.  Hind sight being twenty-twenty, I would forgo the vaccinations, but I'm going to save my reasons for that for another post.

As she has blossomed into a lovely lady, she has suffered constantly from head to toe eczema, yes-it's that bad.  They prescribed me 12 month's worth of the largest tube of steroid cream to apply to her whole body to help keep her from digging herself to death. Oh, yeah, and this is in addition to taking Zyrtec once a day and 2 Benedryl every four hours just to be able to focus on school work because the itching and burning is so bad.  On top of this, she has random head to toe "super hives"  that come and go with no rhyme or reason.   You know, the one's that you can't actually count because they vary from the size of a baseball to the size of my thigh.

Several specialists, lots of tests (ironically none of the doctors will authorize a full panel food allergy screen because "it won't help determine the cause,") many creams, and no relief in a year.  I am frustrated with doctors who probably don't care, but ultimately do nothing but write more prescriptions that literally don't help at all.

So I did what any good mom would do, and I went to Dr. Google and did hours of research.  I discovered that there might be a link between hives, eczema and both gluten and wheat products both of which can also be caused by immunizations, but again-another time.  

So, I discussed it with the Doctor who pretty much thinks she just  needs steroids to help the itching because she will have this her whole life even though it's an embarrassing at best issue.   I spoke again to each of her doctors who agreed that it is the cause for some people, so I took matters into my own hands and officially went wheat/gluten free a month ago bringing the kids in a week later.  Hey, I had to get past my psycho cravings before I made them go through it.  A mom can only take so much.

Everyone has been on board other than my husband who is 50% on board i.e he eats what I prepare unless he is away from home or cooking himself.  We've done so good with the kids only having 3 exceptions and me only having one so far.  

The good news is my daughter has improved.  She isn't completely cleared, but she now only has a few major patches of eczema with no hives for two weeks now, so maybe there is a correlation.

#NSNation, Week 15 and 16 #Spon

I have decided that the goal during the Christmas Month is going to be not gaining.  It took me until this week to lose the 2 lbs I gained at Thanksgiving.  Isn't it funny how long it takes weight to come off, but it jumps back on you in two days?

I am truly thankful for Nutrisystem because I simply couldn't do it through the Holidays without the "no-brainer" diet!  I have been so very busy with life that if I didn't have a system that does the thinking for me, I simply wouldn't have time to do it.  I just grab my food, eat, run, and do it all again!

Christmas should be easier on me than Thanksgiving was because my husband has to work 24 hours between Christmas Eve and Christmas Night.  I will cook him something special to take with him, but it's just me and two of the kids so I am sticking to my Nutrisystem!

All in all, I have lost a total of 20 lbs, and maybe would have lost more if I hadn't put some on at Thanksgiving that set me back.  However, I am thrilled to be a size smaller than I was when I started!

Nutrisystem week 14 #NS Nation, #Spon

Somehow with all the Holiday cleaning, cooking and relatives visiting I totally forgot to post my weight loss last Friday.  I am really sorry about that, so I thought I would post twice this week, now and at the end to show my progress!

I am thrilled to say that last week as of Thursday (we celebrated Friday since DH had to work) that I have finally reached my 20 lb weight loss and weigh 260.  I would be dishonest if I didn't say I wish this weight loss thing were going quicker and that it was easier for me to lose.  However, I am staying positive because I have at least lost 20 lbs, and multiple inches.

I am a little worried about this week since I didn't stick to the plan Friday-Sunday since we had company. I did eat some Nutrisystem at breakfast, lunch and snacks, but evening meals I enjoyed with the family and I know I will pay the price!  I may be a slow loser, but the jeans I was in when I started still fall off if I try to wear them, so I am definitely seeing results!

Week 13 Nutrisystem, #NSNation, #Spon

I am trucking right along with Nutrisystem and loving how easy it is!  I literally just eat and watch my stats get way lower.  I was suffering from some major fluid retention/bloating last week, and I am thankful that I have that solved.

I had taken that mini break from eating more than one meal a day, and I think my body had to readjust again.  I drank lots of tea this week which seems to be a good diuretic for me, and I also did a green clay wrap on my torso so that I could cleanse my body of all the impurities in my system.

The results were great with my combined eating efforts and the wrap, and I am back on track!

Week 12 Nutristystem #NSNation, #Spon

So I have officially been on the Nutrisystem diet for 3 whole months now, and I have been overall pleased.  I have had a really hard 2 weeks which has affected my weight.  This isn't an excuse, this is me admitting I fell off the wagon.  I try very hard to keep my blog a positive place to be, so I haven't mentioned my family dynamics change.  However, to put it simply, my 13.5 year old has decided to go live with his bio dad for a while.  He really misses his dad, and I could be hard-nosed and make it hard on my son, but he loves his dad and my son wants to spend more time with his dad who he has only seen a few times a year before.  However, just because it is what he needed at this time and the right thing to do doesn't mean it didn't make me super sad.

I think I am finally adjusting to our new normal, and I am proud I DIDN'T do a lot of cheating, but because I have been so sad, I just wasn't eating right because I just couldn't.  I would eat maybe one Nutrisystem meal a day and I have retained the food I think.  I am not an expert, but that is what my husband's friend who is a dietitian said.

The bottom line is I had put on 1.5 lbs, but thanks to a great idea my husband had I have lost 1 lb of it.  He suggested that I eat just as soon as I get up in the morning whether I am hungry or not, force myself and to set an alarm for 3 hours later, eat, repeat.  I did this the last two days, and I am pleased with the results.  I still am not hungry, but I really want to keep losing.  I know if I do this diet the way I have been, I will see even greater results.  So, I am back on the wagon!  The only positive is that because I am a mom and so active all the time just being a mom I continued to lose a little in my body stats.

Week 10 with Nutrisystem, #NSNation, #Spon


It finally happened this week!  I received the best compliment which is confirmation that I am losing although as is always typical, I have trouble seeing it myself when I look in the mirror.  I do a lot of real life advertising for Nutrisystem.  Anytime someone mentions something I am eating, my water bottle, or even makes a joke about needing to be on a diet, I jump right in to share my real life results and how pleased I have been.  

For example, just the other night at Costco, my husband was buying his monthly four lbs of bacon (yes, he really eats 4 lbs of bacon in a month, and no matter how hard I try, I can't curb this in the least!) when an older overweight lady mentioned he should cut out some of his bacon consumption.  Turns out she is on a different diet that includes weekly meetings, fees, and weighing/measuring everything you eat.  Well, I took this opportunity to tell her all about how much easier Nutrisystem is:  No weighing, measuring, and no weekly meetings to try and squeeze into my already too busy schedule!

Anyways, the point is while I advertise all the time just because I am so pleased, I haven't told those acquaintances I see on a regular basis.  Why?  Because I was waiting to see if they noticed!  It finally happened.  Last night, I ran to the Country Store to grab some local milk from the dairy, and the guy who always waits on my asked if I had lost weight!  It caught me off guard because he is the first to mention it.  However, once I confirmed, he said he had really been noticing how much thinner my upper body and face is, but was hesitant to ask (a little unsure why since losing weight is usually a good thing at my size).  Yes!  Go Team Nutrisystem!  I not only have lost weight, but people really are noticing!  And, she scores!

I didn't lose any pounds this week, but I seem to have hit a place in the last few weeks that I am losing at a slower, steadier pace.  However, I am more excited than ever.  I am definitely continuing with Nutrisystem because it works, and I no longer hope I lose weight.  I KNOW I am losing weight, and the rest is as good as gone too!

I will try to have a new picture up for you next week.  My husband works nights, so it is hard to actually see him long enough to get a picture, but I will try to make it happen this week!

Week 9 with Nutrisystem, and New Bras! #NSNation, #Spon

This has been a good week for me being on Nutrisystem.  I finally broke my plateau, and while I am still 1 lb away from 20 lbs weight loss, I am thrilled that I lost about a lb and a half this week!  I also finally had to break down and buy new bras which was exciting for me.  I think I have lost the bulk of my weight in my chest area.  I started this diet wearing a 44DDD bra, and now I am in a 40DD which is the perfect fit!  Now someone just tell my stomach area to get on board with this weight loss program and it will feel perfect to me. I still can't personally see a difference in my weight when I look in the mirror, but my stats are going down, I have lost almost 20 lbs, and the proof is in the brand new bra.  I haven't worn a bra this small in about 10 years!  My final weight for this week is 261.8 lbs down from 280.2!

Week 8 with Nutrisystem #NSNation, #Spon




I have officially hit a plateau in my weight loss.  I knew this was coming, and I am okay with it.  However, I would be lying if I didn't admit I am begging the scales to get a move on buster!  The program is pretty self-explanatory and easy, so it had gotten to the point that I was able to know what I should be eating and just do it.

I am really using my online support with Nutrisystem, and that is what makes this program so much better than losing weight on my own.  I have hundreds of people to support me, help answer my questions when I have them, and they have experience with this.  Many of them have been losing way longer than me so they have excellent advice, and there are even more who have reached their goal weight and give excellent advice and moral support.

This week I am paying very close attention to what I am eating in my handy dandy Nutrisystem journal, and I am trying to switch things up.  Several forum members suggested this as a way to get my body to move past this plateau so this is my goal this week.  Regardless, I am still 18 pounds lighter than I was 8 weeks ago so I am thrilled!  Also, I am staying positive because some of my measurement numbers went down some this week as well, so I am seeing it in my clothes if not on the scale itself!

Week 7 with Nutrisystem #NSNation, #Spon

I have officially been on Nutrisystem for 7 full weeks now.  In some ways it seems much longer, and in some ways it seems like I just started and it can't be 7 weeks already.   My latest favorite snack is low-fat Greek Yogurt.  I am using a brand that boasts 23 whole grams of protein, and if I add about 2 Tablespoons of sugar free pudding mix, it transforms into a decadent mousse-like treat!

I have learned that lots of protein and veggies are the trick to staying full between my meals.  I know it seems impossible to be hungry when you eat six meals a day, but as my metabolism increases, I find I am truly hungry by the time each meal rolls around.  However, I am not hungry for nearly as much food now as I used to be!  A cup of greek yogurt, or 8 whole grain crackers with some veggies quickly fills me up!

I didn't reach my goal of 20 lbs weight loss this week, but I am still down 18 whole lbs!  I currently weight 262.2,  which is less than one lb lost this week, but I have lost a whole lot in terms of my tape measure!  I am down a total of  13.9 inches!  That's a whole lotta less of me!  Yesterday, I was walking down the hall and my pants fell all the way down!  I had to retire all the pants I started this diet in and officially go down a size.  Gotta love that!  Nutrisystem works, and even when I don't see the difference on the scales, my clothes  assure me there is definitely a change for the better!

Week Six with Nutrisystem, #NSNation, #Spon

It has now been 6 weeks on Nutrisystem and I am trucking right along.  I learned this last week how important that our healthy carbs actually are on this diet.  I quit eating them for about 4 days, not because I don't like them, but I ran out and didn't want to drive so far to get more.  About day 3 I was so tired I slept through the alarm clock in the morning by 30 minutes.  Day 4 I set the alarm clock an hour early, and I was still sleeping when my darling woke me up 20 minutes past time to get up for school.  A talk with some great Nutrisystem people directed me right to the problem, and day five I made a small whole wheat veggie pizza without cheese, and viola my energy was back up and running.

Photobucket

I learned that every type of food on this diet is important in it's own way.  So the moral of the story is eat your carbs.  Whether you are eating a small apple, a half a potato, slice of whole wheat bread, something.  I promise your body will thank you!  My weight is down from 280.2 at starting to 263 so I have lost 17.3 lbs in 6 full weeks of Nutrisystem. Not a bad success at all!

Nutrisystem Week 5 & 15 lbs down! #NSNation

Well, it is week 5 with Nutrisystem, and I am trucking along at a steady pace.  Today I want to talk share my 3 Keys to Weight Loss Success with you.  I know you may be thinking that it's a bit premature since I have a long way to go to reach my target weight.  However, 5 weeks into this diet I have discovered what works.  I also have discovered that weight loss plateaus will happen, but if I continue  doing what I know works, I will succeed!

My 3 Keys to Weight Loss Success

1.  Drink Water.  What, you were expecting something more earth shattering? Well, turns out your Mama was right all along. Water IS important for you.  Dr. Dukan explains it like washing dishes.  What good does it do to scrub your dishes to get them clean if you don't rinse them when you are done?  All that nasty food is still on there, now combined with soap, but it has no way to leave because you don't rinse them.  The idea is that a person can diet all they want, but if they don't drink enough water, they won't lose weight.  All. that yucky stuff stays inside instead of flushing out.  Made you look at drinking water in a whole new light, didn't I?  Side benefit is that I stay too full-literally to want to eat in between my 6 mini meals


Photobucket

2.  Portion Control.  That's right, size DOES matter!  Did you know that even healthy food has calories.  No, I am not being sarcastic, and I do realize you knew this already.  But do you live this?  I didn't.  I would think, what difference does it make if I measure out my skim milk?  It's SKIM!  Yes, and skim milk has 80 calories per 8 oz cup so if I am "eye-balling" the amount and go over just 1/4 cup, I have an extra 20 calories.  Four small crackers extra is worth 50 calories!  It all adds up quickly, and it doesn't take long to sabotage all of your hard work!  So go to the local dollar market and invest in a set of measuring cups, measuring spoons, and count out those crackers!

3. Exercise  This is the hardest thing for me, but it really does make all the difference in the world.  On the weeks that I get a 30-40 minute exercise in at least 4 times, I can see the difference on the scales on weigh in day.  If I don't exercise, I may lose a pound, but usually it's a little less than a pound.  Sure it is still success, but 2 lbs looks better than .5 pounds any day in my book.  The plus is that I get great energy out of exercising!  The great thing  with Nutrisystem is that they have options for every lifestyle.  I have 30 minutes a day to walk or Zumba.  However, they offer a Daily 3 solution for people who are on a true time constraint. You can do 3 ten minute bursts of exercise at various times of the day.  The benefit of this is that you are revving your energy and keeping it going strong all day!

So tell me, what strategies work for you to either lose weight or keep it off?  I am still learning, and I can use all the suggestions I can get!

I have lost another 1.8 lbs so I am done from 280 to 265.2!  I am thrilled with both the scales and the measuring tape this week!

Week Four Nutrisystem #NSNation!

This week has been another fly by the seat of your pants insane week, but I have had a great week with my Nutrisystem.  I received my second shipment of Nutrisystem cabinet foods, and I will receive my frozen food today or tomorrow.  We had grandparents Saturday through Monday and picked up a different Grandma from the airport on Tuesday, but I am dieting strong!

Photobucket

I started off at 280 lbs and have lost down to 267 lbs even.  That is only a 1.2 lb loss in the last week, but my body (well parts of it) are literally melting away!  I know the key to seeing the scales move is more exercise which I just haven't had time for this last week unless daily cleaning my house for company counts, but I love seeing the difference on my tape measure too.  Sadly, I am seeing a real difference in my bras, so I think I will be bra shopping next Friday since I am tired of how big it has gotten on me.  If I could just switch that with my hip weight loss, life would be almost perfect!

In all seriousness, this is the easiest diet I have been on, ever.  Sure, there are times it's tough, and I want to eat homemade meatballs or cheesecake, but my Nutrisystem brownie is a lifesaver, and we keep trucking!  On a side note, we went to IHOP to eat this week while running errands one day, and I found that something on the lite menu wasn't too far off from Nutrisystem.  I managed to eat some eggbeaters with a side of whole grain pancakes and only eat 500 calories.  I felt really good about myself knowing I did what was good for my body, and it actually tasted good too!

That's a total of 1.4 inches lost in my upper arms, 2.8 inches lost in my chest, 2.7 inches lost in my waist, 2 inches lost in my hips and 2.6 inches lost in my thighs!  I call that Success!  Irony?  No way, since I am on the Nutrisystem Success program!

#NSNation: Week Three

I dreaded weighing in this week.  I just knew it was going to be bad.  Well, it wasn't bad, but it surely wasn't good either.  I didn't gain or lose this week so I am excited that I am holding strong at 12 lbs lost!



It has been such a crazy week.  Three different days, my complete day was thrown a curve ball, and I had to  run out of the house.  Hours later, I come home having not eaten all day.  For those of you who think you can just starve and lose, I am living proof that not all people can.  I am one of those people with metabolism still so slow that if I don't eat my 6 mini meals, I don't lose.  I did  stay on Nutrisystem food and didn't cheat while I was away from home, but let me tell you 12 hours without any food, then eating at midnight isn't great for anyone!

My son has been so sick, and with the trip to the hospital and two doctor's visits, it's been insane here.  On top of it all, this the "retain 5 lbs of water weight" time for me, so I am glad I don't have five extra lbs on the scales this weeks just because I'm a girl!


My Beginning Measurements:  

Upper Arms: 15.0
Chest: 49.8
Waist: 54.0
Hips: 59.0
Thighs: 23.6

Last Week's Measurements:

Chest: 47.8
Waist: 0.0

For me, logging my food and water and exercise is essential, and I am getting back on track with it all TODAY!  I was thrilled with my inches though since despite my crazy week I lost in small increments everywhere but my waist.  Thanks to bloating, my waist is bigger, so I will tell you the inches on that next week!  Slowly but surely, I am melting away!
