We all know celiac and gluten free are heard on almost every show in main stream television… even Tosh.0 tonight. It has even made it’s way into stand-up comedy. This bit is funny… but very serious for most of us. We all probably experienced one day like this…
“What has gluten in it? …EVERYTHING REASON TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING!!!”
I think this is a great idea… not sure if it will happen for at least a few years, but at least let’s get some attention to this story!
Yes, it would be awesome to have gluten free Girl Scout cookies!
Does this make sense for the Girl Scouts to invest in this endeavor? How many people would actually buy them? I would! I would probably buy a lot, because we don’t have many other gluten free cookie options. I don’t know the current stats, but what is it, 1 in 133 people have Celiac? BUT only 3-5% of them actually know they have it. So, the market for gluten free cookies is pretty slim. Would Girl Scouts pass this cost onto the consumer? It would lower the amount that I buy… but I’d still buy some!
Thankfully, I lost some weight this week! 2lbs! I’m very happy with this! Coming off a week where I didn’t lose anything, I stepped up my diet a little and kept a better eye on it. 203 to 201- Started at 220.
I was really worried about this week, since I went back home to my parents house Friday to Monday. I saw a lot of old friends, and most of those meetings revolved around food and alcohol. I didn’t drink much at all, but I can’t say the same about eat. It seems we always go to my favorite places when back home. The type of food and especially potions are not diet food material.
I’m happy with losing 2lbs per week at this stage in the diet. Next week I HAVE to lose at least 2 more, which puts me under 200lbs!!! I haven’t been under 200lbs since I started college.
I’m disappointed in myself. I didn’t lose any weight this week- stuck at 203. My goal was to hit 200lbs this week.
I think I have lost some dedication to the diet. I’m a firm believer that eating healthy and exercising should be a lifestyle change and not just a “diet” determined by a time period. Recently, I have stopped counting every calorie and eating my meals at a certain time. Maybe I was premature to think I could handle my new lifestyle without writing everything down and counting every calorie.
I wouldn’t say I have lost motivation, but I have gotten off track a little.
I also believe that around 200lbs is the end of my “easy” weight loss. Each pound from here forward will be harder, but it will be real weight. No more easy water weight losses, only real weight.
I may have to go back to my old routine of counting calories and every nutritional fact. Once I make it to my goal, then I can try going back to a “lifestyle” instead of a tracked “diet.”
