I am not even talking about the scale. My measurements other than my belly are pretty much the same, so that is a relief. I did some food experimenting (too early I know, by far, but I just want to figure it out!) and caused my self to blow up again.
But, more important than all of that is that we have noticed my youngest seems to react when I do. Did some research and the poor thing may have had food allergies for awhile. I am more concerned in figuring his out since he is already lactose intolerant. As a family we are going to approach a very simplistic living plan for awhile (once we eat through the food we already have)…meaning, other than almond milk and almond butter we are going to avoid most foods that come in containers. We are going to be primarily fruits, veggies and meats for a bit to see if it makes a difference in our general health.
3 things I hope happen from this experiment:
1. We find out what food is triggering reactions
2. We are able to have “unhealthy/processed/manmade” foods in moderation
3. We adapt a whole new healthy lifestyle that allows us to make smart food choices without being overboard crazy about it
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Still on my break from Clash of Kings...Alex Cross books are such quick reads and quite entertaining. I do seem to predict a lot, but that’s okay…they are simple easy reading and work for a busy mom. I still do not like the language, but I don’t see that changing in the books to come. I just finished Violets are Blue and Four Blind Mice. Will pick up the next 2 this week. I am considering completing the Alex Cross series and then heading back to Clash. We will see. 🙂
1 John 4:19
We love because [God] first loved us.
I did not weigh myself this week or do my measurements. I still fit in my clothes…even my smaller size ones, but they are a little more snug. I have had quite a few food reactions and have ballooned up and down. Feeling yucky does not inspire me to check the scale and feel yuckier.
I was doing elimination diet and then my doctor wisely advised me to just do gluten free, BUT ALAS I still reacted and I think I may have a corn issue…which includes corn starch and corn syrup. So, I am now back to elimination diet, because the possibilities could be corn, gluten or nuts. We will see.
Hoping that I can get it figured out and start posting my stats again soon. I know they can’t be horrible, but I know they aren’t great, and I know I feel like they are horrible because of the crazy food reactions.
Any corn or gluten wisdoms are much wanted and would be greatly appreciated!
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
