Chocolate and I are not friends

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Well I am addicted to chocolate...everyone who knows me well knows this. When my hubby now and I got engaged and my Dad had an engagement party for us my Mother-in-law to be bought us a gift as a couple but for me personally she bought me a winne the pooh candy jar filled with chocolate kisses. Thats saying something huh.

For 3 years I tried to give up chocolate for lent and I could not do it that is until last year...I actually did it. And guess what, I felt better. You see I am convinced its very possible I am allergic to chocolate or the milk its made from. This isn't a far immune system is already attacks gluten and the lining of my small intestine so I avoid gluten since being diagnosed with celiac disease 7 1/2 years ago. My immune system also does not like soy, almonds, pork and corn. What the heck!! So do I want to give up chocolate....well no because I feel like I give up so much already. But you know I think I am finally at the point where I have to to feel my best. I really need to stop being in denial about it. I have an appointment to see my gastroenterologist on Aug 7 and I am going to ask her to test me for milk and chocolate allergy.

So I have decided today after eating probably 500+ calories in chocolate that I need to give it up and not just because its preventing me from losing weight but because I have been irritable, headachy and throat spasmy since I ate it today. So today is get real day...chocolate and I are not friends and we must part ways. I will miss chocolate but I really think I will be better off without it . Maybe on my birthday I will invite chocolate to my party but otherwise chocolate we can't be friends. Will keep you posted on how its going emoticon emoticon

    Hi. I'm curious to know if there was a test to confirm your suspected chocolate allergy. I get sores in my mouth, headache, stiff neck and sore throat from chocolate. emoticon I am also gluten sensitive and have seasonal allergies. Hope your feeling well.

    It might not be the chocolate but the milk that is in it.

    not my strong point either... we have to push for what we want with some discipline.
