Somebody call a whaaaaaaaaaaambulanc
e...I don't like my new food choices...

Friday, January 17, 2014


I've been doing pretty good...no really...I have! I was already limiting my diet to 1500 calories a day. Then I got the news that I had food sensitivities and that my doc wanted me to cut out all foods that I was sensitive to for at least 3 months. If you had read one of my previous blogs you would know that I wasn't a happy camper.

Even so...I made a decision to make the switch...at least for now. I was doing just fine until I got sick with both a yeast infection AND a UTI. DOUBLE WHAMMY! I don't know about you, but when I get sick, I want my mommy and something good to eat. Coming back from the doctor I just started screaming,

"I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"

After I got that little rant out...I felt a little better. But, the truth is...it's HARD giving up foods you love. The truth is...it's hard facing the fact that you've been using food as a crutch for so many things. It would be like taking away Linus's blankie and giving him a scrap of cloth to replace it. I hate to admit it...but food was my blankie.



Where do I go from here? My goal is to put my big girl panties on and stay the course. I will continue to work on this massive shift in thinking. I can't promise I will succeed...but, I will certainly try.



So...where's that whaaaaaaaaaaaambulance?

    Yep, you've gotten kicked in the butt and socked in the gut at the same time. Consider this a wake up call.

Rebellion is hard to stop.

What's also hard is to be sick as a dog run over by a truck the rest of your life knowing you could have done something about it.

  ahh.. years ago I went on theat canditas ( spell? ) diet. it was so restictive. For some reason woman offten get that double yammy. In fact I had the the y infection constantly. It was miserable.

I know cranberry juice is great for the bladder. My friend told me of a natural product, that gets rid of the other in 1-3 days. It not totally cheap but she swears by it. I wrote it down, and could find it, if you drop me a line in my e-mail box.

I know it is frustrating.

And bread seemed to make it worse for me, or excess carbs. Once you get it under control, some can rotate their foods. I mean not eating the certain things everyday. emoticon

    Yes you can do this. Think how much better you are going to feel. Stay positive and explore your options (limited as they are at times). I know you can do this.

    i understand! a comfort food just can't be replicated with substitutes. hang in there...hopefully you're feeling better for avoiding the offending foods.

    sigh...it IS hard to rewire comfort food choices. But feeling good is a worthwhile payoff, and it helps to focus on what you really like that you CAN eat. emoticon
