The Plateau Jeanette January 15, 2015 The Journey Throughout my journey to wellness I had been losing steadily. In fact, I checked to be sure I should be losing that quickly. May-start of detox: lost 15 pounds – just by getting out of my chair and moving more! Month 1 – Detox: 12 pounds Month 2 – Food testing & starting gluten free, including Thanksgiving: 9 pounds Month 3 – Gluten free & start of dairy free, including a 6-day cruise: 6 pounds Month 4 – Christmas, New Years, and family reunion: 5 pounds Month 5 – 4 pounds Total: 51 pounds! Now while I’m very proud of that, you can see that things were slowing down, in spite of the drastic changes in my diet. In fact, there was a constant battle of yo-yo – up 2 pounds, down 1 pound, up 1 pound, down 2 pounds, up 2 pounds, etc. For 10 weeks, it felt like we were going nowhere fast! So when Dr. Botts did a fresh round of lab work and found that I was still inflammed, he recommended we do another specialized test – to test 120 different foods to see what was keeping my body in a constant state of inflammation. I agreed – because I was tired of feeling like I was doing everything right, then not losing weight.
