Don't wish for those allergies! I know people who have had to cut out the Gluten and/or carbs and they crave the stuff anyways!
Have a great week!

"Getting through trials doesn't reveal our strength. (No, the trials do a pretty good job of that.) Getting through trials reveals God's grace and produces our character. So yes, get up. If God allows, get up to fight the good fight. But as you wipe the dust off your back, don't pat." -Jimmy Peņa
I've modified this diet for my lifestyle... but honestly, almost wish that I had the problems of added carbs being something I find I'm allergic to! LOL I hear alot about people finding out they are gluten sensitive or can't eat wheat or whatever. I've had my little cheats from time to time, or just add carbs if and when I feel the need to and nope, not one adverse affect, except the water weight that comes with it.
I guess it's good that I'm not feeling the bad things, I'm just thinking, it might make it easier to stop having them.
I have to admit to weighing in a few times a week. For me, it totally keeps me accountable. I had a few cheats this week (Thai Drunken Noodles on Tuesday with a cupcake and on Friday late night, a half order of nachos)... The other things I had, really weren't cheats, but they were added carbs which I try to have only in the first part of the week, but this past week had towards the end.
I kept the exercise up, but didn't do the volume that I tried the week prior.
It's all a journey... I've definitely got a handle on my weight now... I keep an eye on it... I work out extra if I feel that I was bad. I amp up the veggies and water after high sodium days, etc.
My wonderful husband lost 4.5 lbs this week, so he's on track... with a total of 67.5 lbs lost! I'm so proud of him! Really, I know there are ALOT of you with hubby's out there that just can't get into the diet thing or even the healthy thing... and he was one of them! So, it's HUGE what he's doing right now and even that keeps me more on track with my journey.
I know that this week, this maintaining will stay on my mind (not punishing myself, just ultra aware)... so I feel this will be a good week for me... I know I'll report a weight loss next week!
It feels great to have this much control over my own body!! FINALLY! It feels awesome!
