Hi, I am an elementary school teacher and grandmother who raises Havanese dogs for a hobby.
I began using fatsecret in 2011 to fit into a dress for my daughter's wedding. It took me about 4 months to get from 156 to 139, but I kept the weight off for 4 years. Now I am at 146 trying to get down to 135 lbs.
I have been gluten free since 2009. During that year, I was hospitalized for sporadic ataxia, arthritis, nerve pain, and burning sensations in my hands and feet. All of these symptoms subsided after cutting out gluten. I know gluten intolerance is true because a number of times, the sudden onset of symptoms led me to discover gluten in a product that I had thought was gluten free. Three of my four siblings have similar gluten intolerance.
Anyway, I eat as many "real" foods as I can. I try to avoid commercial "gluten free" cookies, snacks or carbs and just stick to the basics except for Glutino multi-grain bread. With peanut butter, it is my favorite snack.
