Grain free & Loving It!

I have been heavy all my life but had reached my heaviest ever at 292lbs......ugh. I was also very sick on top of that, severe fatigue, stiff painful joints, intestinal problems...and on and on.
So when my doctor told me to go gluten free, I started reading and researching. What I found, and then implemented, is changing my life!
My weight loss goal is to lose 150lbs and be in single digit sizes in one year or less. I lost over 40lbs just in the first 2 months!

I am grain free (no wheat, corn, rice, oats, etc) and very low carb (usually 30grams or less a day). But, I do not skimp on the fat! Fat is important for our health, especially when on a low carb diet.
For exercise, my husband and I go to the gym 3x a week and I have a Zumba class twice a week.

The most important thing though is that this is not just a temporary diet to lose weight.....this is a new lifestyle for me that is a permanent change.

My Program:
I am gluten free, grain free, and low carb (30 NET grams or less a day).
I don't restrict fat intake and while I don't really count calories, I try to keep them under 1,500.
*update* I hit a plateau so now I am trying to keep my calories under 1,200 most days.

I drink 8+ glasses of water a day.

I hit the gym 3x a week, have a Zumba class twice a week, and fit in other sorts of exercise where I can.

Personal Information:
I am 36, married for almost 10 yrs, and we live in the Salem area of Oregon. We don't have kids but have pets instead, lol.

I have been heavy all my life and yo-yo dieted quite a bit through the years but was never able to get it all off or keep it off.
Now that I have found a way of eating that works and makes sense to me, I have found the strength and inspiration to make permanent lifestyle changes and working towards my goal of finally being slender and healthy!

Other Information:
I am on a nature based spiritual path and would love to connect with others who are too. Namaste and Blessed Be! :)
