I'm actually two days late with this post, since my official anniversary was Monday, December 2, but I figured it's not a big deal. The fact that I have successfully made it a whole year being 100% gluten-free is the big deal!
A part of me feels like it has been forever since I've been off gluten and then another part of me feels like it really wasn't that long ago that I made this huge diet change. But I do remember the despair and complete lack of hope I felt just a short year ago. I was so sure that nothing would actually help me feel better and I went into the whole gluten-free diet change not expecting huge results. You can read my post that I wrote this time last year.
This past year has shown huge changes in how I feel. I still have crappy days (more so lately) and I'm still not back to where I want to be weight-wise, but I have definitely improved since last December. And for that I am thankful.
It has been hard to give up gluten and I definitely miss bread the most, but it has been worth it. I never thought that this would be my life but I'm okay with it.
So join me in celebrating my one year anniversary of being gluten-free and raise a toast to big life changes that can seem scary but end up being okay. Cheers!
