  • I think everyone's GI system is different. And, honestly, I think while cleaning out the crap, the GI has to reorient itself. [Finding that myself last week and this week, and now on the upswing.]

    I was losing just fine on white potatoes (gasp), a little rice, sweet potatoes, parsnips, and the like, so long as I: watched the calories and limited the junk. I also have to be careful, because the bulk of my diet starts to become carbs, and I don't eat as healthy, which then causes me to overeat.

    • Ruth- YES! What I was thinking and a fear as well. However, I wonder if I limit it to 1/4-1/2 c per day of ONE of them (I have to be strict with myself) if I can work with it. I have tried to be all meat and veggie and I flop because I think I need more substance.

      • A program you cant stick to no matter why you cant is not gonna work. So if it is boredom or nutrient deficiency or need to crunch it doesnt matter. On the other hand a program where you dont lose weight is not one worth sticking to. Somewhere between those 2 extremes is the answer. And what works for one doesnt always work for another. And what once worked for you may not work now.

        I honestly believe that cravings are the body's way of telling you that you need something. Now the trick is to correctly interpret what that is. I feel certain it is not ever going to really be processed or essentially sugar, however it might be about some quick calories if you (proverbial you) are starving yourself.

          • Well as opposed to starting again you are implementing lessons learned and continuing the learning.

            • Guess who is off to the doctors tomorrow. Ear is not getting better but worse, much much worse. The left side of my jaw is sore and feels swollen..Dang!! I will not self medicate with food though for comfort. I will not!!

              So, checked Lilys grades. All A`s (have not seem this all of 6th grade). To celebrate we took her to red robin (she had wanted to eat out all week. She loves to eat out ALL THE TIME but we made her wait until Friday). A burger on a live bun and instead of fries, steamed broccoli and herb tea on the side. Even though onion rings were ordered:banghead: i made good choices. So, no dairy, no processed stuff including bacon. My tummy thanks me...hopefully the scale will too soon.

                    Pain. The doctor opens at 9 am today so I plan to be there when the door opens.

                    • Ugh. Hopefully they help you feel better.

                      • Back from Dr. The verdict is a sinus infection. The good news is the ears look perfect. The bad news, I am on augmenton and a steroid. I will be glad when my face quits hurting. Now the whole left side of my face hurts

                        • I am glad you went. My hubby finally went when he lost the vision in one eye from the sinus pressure on the optic nerve. Thank goodness it wasn't permanent.

                          • Oh wow HB! Glad he went to. Hope he is feeling better!

                            Right now the left side of my face is warm, super sore and feels twice as big as it should. He said 24-48 hours I should feel better.
