Happy 50th Birthday to me! As promised, here are the before and after pictures. I started the true Gluten Free diet in May 2011 as documented in my post at that time. The following picture of me is from September of 2011. This was 4 months after starting the true gluten free diet and learning traditional food preparation (based on the ideas in the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon) through the eCourse I have been telling you all about which I still take weekly! That class was the very beginning of my much healthier diet. In the picture below, I was already losing some weight but you will still get an idea of how much weight I lost overall. I want to stress that I was not concentrating on losing weight and have never been, but rather desiring to minimize the effects of Hashimotos Thyroiditis. I have been seeking health and hoping that with health would come weight loss. And it has sure happened that way!
This is going to be a very quick post. I just HAD to share with you something and it’s last minute and time sensitive. I’m really sorry I am delivering this so late but the classes I have been talking about on Traditional Food Preparations by GNOWFLINS have been on my mind. Mainly because it seems like every single day I bring a skill into my kitchen I have learned from these fabulous classes. The reason it’s so important to get this post out today, is that I just remembered while I was making my yummy homemade almond butter, that the price of the classes are going up by midnight tonight! I feel terrible I didn’t post this a few days ago to give more of you a chance at the lower monthly prices but this just occurred to me now that you should at least have the chance to lock in the wonderfully low rates I have been enjoying. Seriously, I am in the middle of making my almond butter and stopped to put this post up to give you as much time as possible to get in on the lower price. If you sign up before midnight tonight, the prices will stay as low as I have been paying for over 2 years! And they will be locked in for you too.
