For the most part, it hasn’t been too hard of a change. Sometimes it can be difficult when the people around me drink and eat whatever they want. But, thinking about how overboard I went with my intake of everything listed above prior to giving them up, I think this change was long overdue.
C.J. has made huge changes too! He went from making sugar his #1 source of food (ok, a little exaggeration) to only having dessert a few times a week. The only time he really eats gluten is if he goes out to eat for lunch and I think he has only had 2 beers over the past month. He said he has been feeling a lot better too! Win!
I know and was recently reminded at our appointment that it is all about moderation. Unfortunately, sometimes for me black and white is easier than grey. I will probably introduce a beverage on special occasions, but am going to definitely try to stick to the no sugar and gluten. Again, we know that just because we make these changes doesn’t mean it will make us pregnant. But, our hearts desire is to glorify Him in all we do and we believe the changes we have made are allowing us to treat our bodies how God intended to.
