As I write this I am so super excited! I am excited to actually see the proof that the changes I have made to help reverse my autoimmune disease are working. It is no longer a “maybe this will work”, no longer a “we will just wait and see”, it is a firm “woo freakin’ hoo this IS working”!
I have chosen to lead a lifestyle that is challenging and there are many times that I have wanted to just give up and give in. Seeing the progress helps me stand strong in the decisions I am making. In this moment I am looking my Dermatomyositis directly in the face and saying “Back off, I am taking me back”. I still have a long way to go but every hurdle that I can clear without drastically falling like Danny Zuko in Grease, is a huge win.
Is it still hard to lead this new dieting lifestyle? Yes, but it is getting easier. The longer I am living this new life, the easier it gets. It is becoming easier to say no to temptation and to just not want the “bad” stuff anymore. After all, how could I possibly go back now after seeing that it is working!
Here’s the proof…
P.S. I literally can NOT stop smiling!
