kat2021 Posted June 3, 2013 Share Posted June 3, 2013 Finished my whole 60 over the weekend. Overall results were very good! Positives: Lost nearly 10 pounds. Was at a 'healthy' weight and wasn't really trying to lose- but now I weigh what I did in high school again, which is pretty awesome except that none of my clothes fit. I'm super-petite anyway, and I might have to shop in the kids section if I lose anymore, lol. Allergies were better. Haven't taken any allergy meds this spring and, while I'm still having some symptoms when I'm outside for a long time (camping, etc.) they aren't nearly as bad. Going through about half the amount of tissues and stuff that I would have last year - and that was WITH meds. Food tastes better - and cravings are pretty minimal (except at 'that time of the month', which still gives me sugar cravings). But overall, I didn't cheat and I wasn't seriously tempted. Husband liked it! He did not stick to it strictly, but was probably between 80-90% with me. He's lost some weight, says that his anxiety and stress around work is down, and has been able to stop biting his nails. He told me that he's amazed by how much food effects how you feel, and is willing to stick to this diet for the most part going forward. Which is awesome - because he still needs to trim down a bit, and he does most of the cooking. Most other things have been good - sleep, workouts, moods, etc. I caught a bad cold last week so, unfortunately, the diet does not make me immune to viruses, but otherwise, things are great. Negatives: Socially, things can suck a bit with this diet. I already have this problem because it's difficult for me to eat out at many restaurants due to my celiac disease, so it's been tough to be even more strict. It'll be nice to relax things a bit and just worry about staying gluten free the 1-2 times a month I do eat out. I've also missed my wine and my gluten free beer, so it'll be nice to enjoy a drink or two again in future. I think alcohol effects my allergies, though, so I may continue to keep it out for the next few months. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
