I had been using WP Smush WordPress add-in until the most recent update, which slowed the load time of my site considerably. Once I disabled it, my site loads fast. Just a heads-up if anyone else is experiencing this problem.
If I disable (uncheck) the box to Smush images on upload, then my site loads normally. I just have to manually Smush each image or use the bulk image Smusher for now. Not a big deal since my site is not too heavy on large images. YMMV 🙂
