I’m not trying to be trendy…

I love bread, but it’s my Kryptonite.

I have decided to go Gluten Free.  I’ve been reading the past couple of months about how gluten can exacerbate Hashimoto’s symptoms and honestly I’m tried of feeling like crud! So here I go…

I was going to gorge myself with tons of yummy bread and fried yumminess last Friday but my better half reminded me that that wasn’t very responsible. So Friday’s dinner was my start of my journey.

The weekend was rough.  I won’t go into details, but let’s just say I had to stay close to the bathroom.  I finally gave in and took some Imodium on Sunday.  

Today, Monday….I’m feeling good-ish.  Yes, I feel like I’m constantly hungry.  I’ve heard that’s normal.  I know I need to drink more fluids, this is an issue I have anyway.  I know that drinking water will help flush the toxins out of my system and I’ll feel better sooner and it will help with the hunger pangs.

I want to thank the support that I’ve received from Google+.  If you aren’t a member of this social media, I would suggest joining.  The level of interaction is amazing.

I also want to thank my Facebook friends who also gave me some support.  Did you know that Chex makes a Gluten Free oatmeal?  Me neither, until a friend on FB let me in on that wonderful news.  🙂

There are tons of gluten free replacements out in the world. I could easily allow myself to simply replace bread with gluten free bread but I think I’m going to keep it’s simple, stupid. (KISS)  and eat real food for now.  Not that gluten free bread isn’t real but …you know.  Right now the only “gluten free” replacement food I got was my morning oatmeal.  I don’t want to get sucked into all of that….

So yeah.  That’s what’s going on with me and my thyroid right now.  I had an appointment and the doctor didn’t want to change any of my dosages so I have to take control another way.  I’ve know this path was there for a long time but kept putting it off.
