On the SECOND Day of Gluten-Free Christmas
my Health Coach gave to me . . .
. . .the gift of strength
Strength is needed to be in charge of your life.
Once my doctor told me to start a gluten-free diet, I had no idea what that meant. He sent me to a dietitian, who told me to eat gluten-free, then handed me a list of gluten-free breads to find at Whole Foods. She also told me I could eat rice and quinoa ( What was that?) and to Google anything else I needed. That was not much help!
Thankfully, not everyone you meet will be this unhelpful.
Yet, most are not going to take you by the hand and tell you everything you need to know. But, I’m sure you understand:
KNOWLEDGE is POWER
You really can continue to learn something new every day.
Research and learn.
You have to take this step.
Grab the strength to be in charge of your life.
You can, and should, have guidance and support, but don’t wait for someone to figure it all out for you. YOU need to be the one to incorporate your new knowledge into your lifestyle. Get out there and test out your new life! Do not sit at home and miss out anymore.
You deserve it!
You have support and guidance all around you – just open your eyes and you will NOT be alone in this journey. Your doctors, Health Coaches, family, friends and community can all help.
It’s up to you to take the wheel and follow your journey.
