Happy Anniversary To ME!

This is what I wrote on April 23, 2008 my first day being wheat free ever:

Today was day one on my new wheat free lifestyle. I have not gotten one stomach ache, head ache, cranky moment or tired moment. Even though I will have to say goodbye to a lot of my favorite foods, it will be worth it if I feel better.

You can find that on my Endless Possibilities blog. The next day on the same blog I wrote about my first experience ordering food wheat free:

I spent time with my friend Kelly today. She and I have been friends since 9th grade. She is a lot of fun and I am totally excited for her because she and her husband are expecting their first child! We went to lunch at Johnny Rockets and I stuck to my wheat free diet by ordering a hamburger with no mayo and no bun. Afterwards, we went to Whole Foods and did some shopping. The day was great and I totally cherish the time that I spend with her since we both lead pretty busy lives. Kelly enjoying her french fries.

A year later I am still wheat free ( I celebrate my gluten free anniversary in August!) and I cannot be happier. I love the choices that I have made for myself and my health. I was told by some friends that maybe I was allergic to wheat. My best friend Stephanie has celiacs but I didn't want to think that I could possibly have it too. When I did get the diagnosis I got on the ball and took charge of my health. I will be celebrating all day this change in my life. Check back later to see how I celebrated this change in my life! Oh, and the no mayo thing was because I was on Weight Watchers at the time, not because of the wheat intolerance.

Congratulations! I wish I remembered the date I went wheat free so I could mark the anniversary too. Thanks for elaborating on the "no mayo" comment - I was trying to think if it was possible for a restaurant to sneak wheat into mayonnaise somehow. That would be my nightmare! Have fun on your anniversary!

Thanks Gina!
I know the date of the anniversary of the wheat free one because of the other blog but I don't know the exact date of the GF anniversary, which I cant believe I didn't actually write a post on. I remember calling everyone about it. But, I know a ball park date.

Yeah, I quit Weight Watchers like a two weeks later because I didn't want to count points and eliminate wheat at the same time. Seemed to hard.

I am going to check out your awesome blog tonight, I love it! OK, it is zoo time!
