The Challenge and The Dresses You Requested

I forgot to mention yesterday that the owner of my Curves advised that I try out a gluten-free diet for the next 90 days during my first run at the Curves Complete program.  She is suggesting I do that because I told her about the article I read that discussed wheat intolerance being associated with chronic fatigue syndrome.... which I have.  She thought that since I'm "tweaking" my diet anyway, that it might be a great time to try this gluten-free gig and see how I feel.  I couldn't agree more!!!  But where do I start??? 

I first started online.... OF COURSE!!!  Here's what I came up with:  http://www.wholegrainscouncil.org/whole-grains-101/gluten-free-whole-grains

Then I found:  http://glutenfreegirl.com/how-to-live-gluten-free/ and http://simplygluten-free.com/ and http://www.acidalkalinediet.com/high-alkaline-foods-12-perfect-foods-for-optimal-health

And great tips here:  http://www.sheknows.com/health-and-wellness/articles/803172/six-tips-to-live-glutenfree

Finally, a few new blogs that I have FALLEN IN LOVE WITH:  http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/2009/03/cooking-gluten-free-on-budget-brown.html

Now... I think I'm well on my way.  Which is a good thing because Monday is almost here!!!  Here's a little glimpse at why all of this is so important to me!  Below are pics of all my favorite wedding dresses (so far).  I'm hoping that I will be able to get one of these beauties off the rack come June... what are the chances???  Anyway, to those of you who requested pics... here you go!!! :)  I'm thinking this won't be the first wedding dress post!  LOL!  And while these dresses aren't in any particular order, I will say that my very favorite is the first one, but I would honestly take ANY that are pictured!!!
