I have hip dysplasia too and my hips haven't hurt nearly as bad. It sucks but you can have a naughty day every now and then. It's worth it.
Yeah, I still have a problem with soda...but, I can only cut out so much at one time lol. I do have a "slip" in the wheat/grains sometimes, but very seldom with the way it makes me feel. I am not so stringent that I can't have what I want most of the time, I just ask myself first, "Do I want to feel good right this second by eating it, and pay later"? I don't care so much about the weight as I do the other benefits I have gained from no wheat/grains. I feel the return of symptoms even with a small bit of those, so I try to satisfy myself with something else. I just love that on this eating lifestyle I have that I don't have to count cals or fat...and I feel great!
Great job on the weight loss!
