Yep, thats what I am now...satisfied!!
a few months ago, I found out I had a milk protein allergy. This resulted in no pizza, cheeses, milk, sour cream, etc. (anything dairy).. I thought, what am i gonna do? this is gonna be hard. But i made the negative into a positive. I found new ways to eat, and as a result, I have lost more weight. Also, by doing so, I have gone from 216 cholesterol to 176, my triglycerides were 364 and now its 163 ( the desired number is to be less than 149 for triglycerides). I did this in one year. Its all due to this allergy, which in turn has been the best thing for me.
Yes, I miss pizza, cheese, cottage cheese, and sour cream, but I am okay with that. I get to live a longer, healthier life for the exchange of those foods. I AM SATISFIED!! I may not be able to have a bite of cheesy pizza again, but now it is of no temptation to me.
I think, no... I know, I have won this battle.....my body just needs to catch up with me. I am satisfied, and I am happy!!!
