DEEEBEE'S DIARY

I am resigning myself to what I weigh even though it's more than the charts say it should be. My weight has remained stable for a long time. I am exercising six days a week and watching my diet. I just got another lab report with excellent results. My doctors tell me I am in good health and to keep on doing what I'm doing. I have a lot of energy--seldom feel tired. I am losing inches, just not pounds, and going clothes shopping is almost a pleasure again. My new goal is not to gain any weight.

DeAnne,
Thank you for the clown with balloons goodie for my birthday! My DH brought home an ice cream cake and I have only had a small sliver. Didn't do too bad!

*BIG, BIG hug!*
Dee, I've done SO MANY different elimination diets ruling out triggers. Doctors had me cut out cheese, cured meats (nitrates, like hot dogs, lunch meat) I know fried mushrooms bother me. Cheese I think irritates but doesn't trigger. I don't use bacon grease (I actually don't use bacon all that often. If I do, I get the precooked -blah nitrates!- and heat it on the griddle. WAY less grease all together), I do use vegetable oil here and there, but mostly extra virgin olive oil. My main triggers are bright/flashing lights, loud sounds, and strong smells (like the gag-tastic perfume my sister wears- Bleh!) Artificial Sweeteners don't set well with me. Sucralose does better than aspartame though! Still not a good choice :/
