@pedidoc --- we'll figure it out as long as we keep trying! I read what other people are doing and think I should try that, or that, or that....... but every BODY is different. When I posted questons about weight loss and cholesterol and elevated CRP levels a lot of people told me my body isn't going to give up the weight if there is something wrong on a metabolic level. So, I'm in the waiting part of blood tests and saliva tests. Next doc appt is not for 3 weeks. UGH. If nothing is wrong metabolically then it has to be in my diet. I can give up anything if it will result in losing weight! I've given up all grains because it basically cured my fibromyalgia. I will admit lately I've had TOO MUCH dairy - and a bit too much sugar. The past couple weeks have been rough.........and I've let down my guard a bit.
Its discouraging when so many posts are saying "I just ate what I wanted of healthy real foods and the weight just fell off!" Seriously...... But - that being said, I AM determined to be one of the success stories eventually. We will find the right combination, and we will find our success! Stay with me, pedidoc!
