Day 35
Monday, February 06, 2012      0 comments

I weighed myself yesterday - 144. I'd like to lose 10 pounds. I've definitely been overeating lately in the evening (coconut milk ice cream made with dates and cocoa powder), but not binging though, so that's progress. I haven't gained weight re... Read more
Day 26
Monday, January 30, 2012      0 comments

I'm on day 26 (had to count) and may extend it to 90 days. I'm still having really inconsistent energy levels and brain fog, so I decided to cut out coffee. Today's my last day. I'm quite sad. I ordered some Choffy (roasted cocoa beans you brew ... Read more
Autoimmune Elimination Diet
Monday, January 09, 2012      2 comments

Well, it looks like I have the beginning of an autoimmune disease. I asked to be tested for Hashimoto's (attacks your thyroid) and my antibody level came back slightly high. My doctor called it a weak positive (isn't a positive, a positive?), so... Read more
Feeling lost
Friday, November 04, 2011      3 comments

I regained 4-5 pounds after stopping the Whole30. My clothes are tight and I'm uncomfortable. I went back on it at the beginning of this week (and my clothes are already loosening back up), but I'm questioning whether or not I really want to sta... Read more
I have no idea what is up with my body
Friday, July 29, 2011      0 comments

I have no idea what's going on with my body, but I'm getting pretty frustrated. Three weeks ago I weighed in at 133.5. Today I'm at 138.5. I've been overeating, but not by that much. I figured two pounds maybe, but FIVE pounds? My clothes are fi... Read more
Feeling Better
Friday, June 17, 2011      1 comments

A little update on me. When I weighed earlier this week I was up two pounds. I'm back down 1.5. I'm surprised (and happy) that I only gained half a pound. Also, I'm feeling better. I have more energy and motivation again. The lack of motiva... Read more
Elimination Diet Update, Holding off on Candida Diet
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      1 comments

After doing the elimination diet for a few weeks, some of my symptoms came back. I'm not sure if I developed new sensitivities or if I increased consumption of a food that I was already sensitive to, but hadn't eliminated. Or maybe it was someth... Read more
Not sure what to do - feeling like backing out.
Monday, June 06, 2011      4 comments

I've been feeling pretty unsettled in my stomach for the past few days. The brain fog's been gone since a couple of days after I started the program. It seems to be coming back today though. I'm not sure if it's something I ate yesterday (I had ... Read more

After regressing with some of my symptoms, particularly the anxiety and brain fog (and more recently - stomach pain), I have decided to go on an anti-candida diet. It limits grains to one or two servings a day and vegetables to non-starchy ones ... Read more
Elimination Diet Day 47
Thursday, May 26, 2011      0 comments

I think I'm reacting to coconut. I'm going to cut it out and see what happens. I've been having a lot of stuffiness and dizziness. It's quite frustrating. I've been feeling like I'm getting sick, but then I don't. Also, my weight loss seems to h... Read more
Elimination Diet Day 38
Tuesday, May 17, 2011      1 comments

So, it turns out I was reacting to chocolate, it just took a few days to show up. So, it's back out. I was a lot hungrier than usual, had more cravings, had no motivation, was dizzy in the mornings, and my sleep quality was really poor. I'm star... Read more
Day 32 Update
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      0 comments

I'm doing well. I added back cocoa powder (using dates as a sweetener) and seem to be fine. I'm testing wheat next then soy. I've been drinking coffee again and I feel like it's affecting me, so I'm probably going to cut that back out. I do miss... Read more
Update on Me - Day 25
Wednesday, May 04, 2011      2 comments

I tested corn last week. Within a couple of hours I had a headache and brain fog. I ate some more that night and had horrible brain fog almost all day the next day as well. Cut it back out, brain fog went away. I'll test it again in a few weeks,... Read more

Monday, April 25, 2011      1 comments

Ever since I bought my husband more ground coffee last week I've been wanting some. It smelled so good in the car going home from Starbucks and even better the next morning when I made his coffee for him. So, Sunday I decided to give it a try. I... Read more

I'm feeling great. My energy is good, my skin looks great, my stomach is flatter, my anxiety is a lot lower, and my mood is better than usual. The biggest one though, my food cravings are gone! I occasionally get an urge to eat something (like f... Read more
