I read labels on almost everything and I usually read to the end. I would have lots of trouble with #'s 2 & 3 because I don't log-in every week. Perhaps I should start, but I won't make any promises.

As I was just telling people on another forum, I have QUIT using artificial sweeteners! I haven't had any for about a month and my my digestion improved immensely.

My doctor suggested the above change AND cutting down on sugar. Therefore, my next goal is to cut down on regular sugar and high fructose corn syrup!

just newly put on lactose and gluten free diet, I went to my grocery and found soy based yogurt and cottage cheese. I didn't buy it, as I was going to start with soy milk. Also found the gluten free flour and gluten free waffles.

Realized that being on this diet would definitely be more expensive, as the substitutes cost more than the originals.

OK - so reading Labels is #1 on our goals. How about #2, being to read a Team Member's blog and comment on it 3 times a week?

3 - Find/change a recipe to share with the team 1 time per week.

Since April’s doctor appointment, I have lost 12 pounds. This is the first time in one whole decade; a lost was not followed by pain of fever, flu, or infection. I have been a Spark since 2007. I remain focused of ‘getting healthy’, then loss will happen. Did I have a retro-virus that put stress on me when I attempted to lose weight? Is it gone or hiding under a larger fortress of healthier immune system and nutritional support?

If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

Hi Notmilk, and Team, You have mentioned ideas for input threads. How about an emotional link of hope and frustration formed in the changes from ‘normal food’ to the required restrictions and voluntary choices?

My issues are many and I am aware that, and know well that, a change can happen when I accept the change and plan for success. It is this emotional struggle of change that I tend to resist and deny and eventually, overcome into a form of acceptance. My food issues have found places in me that a doctor does not see or choose to direct, I do that. I am intolerant of gluten, artificials, corn, soy, high acid Solanaceae like tomato, bell pepper, potato, and eggplant. Then I must avoid all sulfite foods of vinegar, grapes, beets, rutabaga, cane sugar, dairy, eggs, carbonated meds, beverages and foods, and any commercially dehydrated food, caffeine, alcohol, citric acids and so on. Bitterness can overwhelm. Acceptance can cool this rage. A new perspective can influence a good change.

I decided I was better off eating things with FEW ingredients but before I did that I would get tired of reading and skip the last few. emoticon so then when I had a reaction I be going back and 'Uh oh...didn't see that."

Good idea with your husband. My Mom is ALWAYS asking about what I eat to the point I have to bite my tongue. LOL I could tell her about the most wonderful healthy meal I had or this great restaurant thinking she would want to go there or say something encouraging but it's, "What kind of oil do they use?? Can you eat that?? Are you supposed to have that??" I know....it's because she cares. emoticon

I agree - and CAREFULLY should probably go in there too! I tend to skip words like "Milk" when reading the labels, my husband always reads them after me to check.

I really liked "read all labels" but I want to add "ALL the way to the end." LOL How about "Eat a wide variety of foods" then we lessen our risk of developing new allergies? Or just eat healthier...

It is "Goal Day" for me today and I thought that I might as well make it goal day for us too! We only have one team goal and it does not reflect our team purpose very well. Any thoughts? I was thinking along the lines of:

Read all the labels before I eat something each day
Avoid known allergens (keeps those who "cheat" from doing so)
Carry my epi-pen with me - I am really guilty of leaving it at home
Send a supportive spark note to a friend each day
give a goodie at least once a week

Thoughts? Chime in here, none of these are set. All are just ideas.

Thanks team!
