Last month, I shared that I was going gluten free in an attempt to try to feel better and I thought it was time for an update.
I'm still going strong! I thought about adding gluten back in about 3 weeks into this health change, but after talking with a number of people, it seems like it should be a longer process.
Do I feel better? Eh.. that's debatable. There's days where I feel I have more energy, and there was a week straight where all I wanted to do was sleep, even after getting enough.
So the jury is still out, but I also haven't eliminated other possible thyroid triggers like milk. I have an appointment with my doctor next week. While I think she's helping, I also think my thyroid levels are no where close to being optimal yet.
This brings me to my weight! My work gym hired a full-time trainer and nutritionist a few months ago and just recently started a fat loss competition. Since scale hasn't budged in months, I asked and got a nutrition plan focusing on Macro nutrients. I'm on the second week, and now that I have a food scale, I think this is going to be a powerful tool in making sure that while my thyroid isn't optimal, at least my nutrition can be!
Haven't moved the scale much at weigh-ins, but I'm determined!
