Making progress.

No more whining and complaining about how much I love cake. I just re-read this article about a man that has been through hell because of this disease and it made me realize how lucky I am to be mostly healthy right now. It also made me realize that if I don't make these changes to my diet now, I just might end up living like that man and no piece of cake or cheeseburger is worth the pain and suffering I go through that will only get worse.

I've only been blogging again for a short time but in that time I've received some awesome advice and support and I am so thankful for that! I really feel ready to tackle this and make the changes. No gluten, no dairy, low carbs. I'm avoiding artificial everything, eating as close to nature as possible. I feel better already.

Tonight Sally and I are going to see Ryan Gosling!!!!!!! He's got this band and he sings with kids' choirs... crazy, but so exciting.

Edited to add: I've had several people ask me if I practice yoga as it's an excellent way to exercise, de-stress, and is also great for the digestive system. I would like to get into yoga but haven't yet for several reasons, lack of funds to pay for a class, lack of space to do it at home etc. But I'm going to look into it again. Thanks!!
