I am thinking that probably I will try out giving up gluten. It's always seemed like it would be a good thing to do, but at this point into my eating adjustments, I'm not eating too much of it anyway. I'm eating this whole wheat oatmeal stuff in the morning that I could easily switch to rolled oats, and eating the occasional peanut butter and banana sandwich, and I could easily switch out the bread for rice cakes. I found out yesterday that cutting out gluten could help with acne and rashes...and if there's anything I've dealt with my entire friggen' life, it's acne and rashes. I think it's worth a shot to see if that would help.

As for how the rest of everything is going...I'm starting to feel noticeably better. I feel happier in general, and find myself less inclined to snap at people or complain, and more compelled to just laugh stuff off.

Part of me feels (and has felt the whole time I was doing stuff I knew was bad for my body) that I maybe let myself go so much so that I could go through the "finding health and happiness" process over again. I tend to enjoy journeys and challenges more than end results, and I am finding myself enjoying this process again (once I got past the initial push). However, I know it's not good for a body to yo-yo up and down in weight or in health, so I will have to figure out what to do with this knowledge, come up with new challenges for myself so that I can avoid doing this again.

Anyway, those are my thoughts for the day.
