Congratulations on meeting your 4-week challenge and setting your new goals. Cooking ahead is a great idea, as well as doing more of your own cooking.
I know about the dairy woes. I also had to cut out dairy and then add it in a little bit at a time as I could tolerate it. I found that I could eat cultured dairy like cheese and yogurts without much trouble. I also use lactose free milk in moderation and take a Lactaid pill or its equivalent whenever I have a small helping of ice cream. With these precautions, I do much better with dairy and have cut down on the problems that it was causing me significantly while still enjoying it as part of my diet.
I tried rice and soy milks, but I found that I really missed the real thing, and that I enjoy the lactose free milk much better.
