Because Cole is small for his age, he was hoping for some changes. This is a boy that has worn a size 10-12 for 3 years. He just wasn't growing. It has been 6 months since he has changed the way he eats and he has gained 17 pounds! It is a weekly celebration on the scale. We all know exactly how much he weighs in the morning and at night. Pretty exciting for him. We are hoping that this diet will help his body absorb nutrients and grow. Being small has been hard for Cole. He has had to learn to have a sense of humor about it. Not to say that it doesn't carry a sting sometimes. But to see some progress on the scale and to go buy a new size of shorts is progress and makes giving up some of your favorite foods worth it.
