I've posted a couple of times if I'm remembering correctly about how I had horrible PMS and periods for years. I was really close to getting on hormonal birth control pills because it's the only thing that ever controlled it. I've had very heavy bleeding every month. Every month I turned into a raging psycho before my period lol.
This was my first cycle on GAPS. And every month a week before my period it gets bad. This month I realized that I hadn't turned into a fire breathing dragon! And my period was much lighter. I'm so surprised!! I really didn't think it would help. I am really happy though. It's hard to tell what was causing it but I've been that way pretty much my whole life if I'm not on birth control. After having my last two kids it got worse. Much worse. So yay!!
Also the first 15 lbs fell off of me. Shamefully I started out with 100 lbs to lose. I've lost 25 and gained muscle. I deal with severe sleep problems from my kids. But GAPS gave me energy to start working out so I've been working out a lot. My clothes are falling off of me and I'm almost 1/3 of the way to my weight loss goal! Just want to say though I'm not doing GAPS to lose weight. I'm doing it to be healthy and heal my gut. I am doing it with my kids too. But I'm determined to become healthy like I used to be so I'm making changes to do that
