I am a 57 year old female, 5 6 and I wish I whieged 148! We've been wheat free for just over a month now and weight loss is slow, 2 3 lbs and they fluctuate. I feel much better though. Aches are gone, except for my feet. Carpal tunnel in my hands even seems better, maybe because inflammation is down/gone. I take a thyroid med and may need to have that adjusted. Also a blood pressure med which I believe I understand may inhibit weight loss. And a statin which I would love to be rid of. Following this blog is very motivating and helps to keep my head around the concept of wheat free. Thank you to everyone for posting your stories.
