weekly update

I can see my stomach again! ¬†ūüôā ¬†After a couple months of the back and forth with my belly (and the rest of my body) and food reactions, I can see the muscles and my waist again. ¬†I know it has to do with avoiding specific foods, but I think another part of it is that I have to record my food now to turn into my allergist. ¬†No one wants to turn in a list of a million calories a day. ¬†ūüėČ

So…I ventured to the scale. ¬†My BMI is back up to 20.6…which is not where I want it to be…my goal is still to have it below 20. ¬†BUT, in light of everything that has been going on with my body, I will take it. ¬†It had been above 21 not too long ago. ¬†I am not ready to try my body fat measurements yet…but will get there soon.

The latest on the allergy front is that my doctor thinks it could be food dyes.  I am wondering if anyone out there is allergic to more than one color of food dyes, because it seems as though I would have to be if that is the connecting factor.  Only time will tell.

As usual, any helpful info is always welcome. ¬†ūüôā


12  All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13  Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, butfor the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.

1 Corinthians 6:12-13
