One thing I have to say about the hospital is even on the psychiatric unit they give you lots of choices for your food. It helps. They decide when you eat, but you get to decide what and how much. Most of the time.
My first couple of days they sent up a standard tray, which was full of wheat and gluten, but then I got to choose and was able to get back on track. And by doing so, I lost 2.5 lbs while in the hospital!
I am slowly getting back to where I was. Someday I will actually be at pre-baby weight. The journey has been long and full of potholes, but I am getting comfortable with the wheat free eating, which will only help me get where I belong.
Please go over and congratulate Alicia on her accomplishment!
