Today marks me being on my cleanse for one whole year!!! I haven't had sugar, gluten, or dairy in a flipping year! I'm so proud of myself and blessed that God has made me so strong. If some of you didn't know, I took a really hard pain pill for almost 2 years that basically ruined my gut. I was left with a ton of toxins, and the only way to get rid of it was to go on this candida cleanse. When I first started it, it was tough because my body was not used to having no sugar. I was extremely tired and getting the worst migraines the first week. From then on I felt SO much better, my taste buds changed dramatically to where I wasn't craving sweets at all. And if you know me, my weakness is all that yummy sweet stuff. But cutting sugar out has helped my acne go away, I have more energy, and my migraines aren't as severe. I gotta give some big love to my parents because they've helped this picky eater find food that I love, and help prepare some of my meals. I'm forever thankful for those lovebirds. Even though my gut isn't completely healed yet, I'm on the right track and thriving. My dad always tells me that it's a marathon not a sprint and I believe that's very accurate. If you don't see progress at the start keep going because with Jesus, He's right next to you cheering you on and guiding you along the right path.
