How are you doing?
Things over here are looking up. A lot of the water retention is gone since I began this journey and I am looking forward to weighing in at TOPS on Monday. Last night I slept through the night like a zombie sated on Mensa brains. Me = thrilled. I had kept wonky hours, but yesterday I buckled down, watched an episode of River Monsters and zonked.
While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you might fall through the holes in a manhole cover.

I ate this:
Breakfast: Cheese straws and Diet Coke
Lunch: 1 sausage patty, scrambled eggs with 2 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese + Diet Coke
Snack: Cheese straws, part deux + Diet Coke
Dinner: That casserole I’m still tweaking + Diet Coke
Notes: Ermagerd! The vitamins helped! I am not sick anymore. Whee! I staved it off!
I learned that dairy is something I think I’m glad I’ve limited.
My oldest son is lactose intolerant, a sign I at least could be. I’ve limited myself, then, to 1-2 ounces per day, tops, to see if that helps. So far, it seems to have. I’m not happy about this; Wisconsin born and bred, we love our cheese. Love love love love love. It’s like the bacon of dairy, and the cows all nod in approval.
Wisconsin: Smell our dairy air.
On the other hand, it seems when I’m eating cheese, I feel a little more bloaty and my losses stall ever so slightly, so I’m sticking with it! I’ll post a separate post about how to limit cheeses today if anyone else is trying to cut back without feeling the sting.
So that’s it! Another food intolerance detected, and this one breaks my heart.
But guess what, I’ll spork a ho in the eye to get into skinny jeans, so if it is cheese, I’ll take her down.
What food intolerances have you noticed in your journey and what are you doing to fix it?
