    Thanks, Tomi. The energy is a little lacking, but it will come back. That Dr. Myhill gave me a whack upside the head that I really needed. (Figuratively speaking, of course, she doesn't know I exist.) I keep getting optimistic and running ahead of my energy and running myself into the ground again. She has finally drilled it into my head that I MUST NOT DO THAT. I am messing with my biochemistry in a really bad way when I do. And what she says really jives with my own experience, so I am taking her very seriously. Wish I could take some of the new tests she swears by, but they're only done by a lab in the UK.

    So from now on it is my mantra to not push right up to my limit, unless life leaves me no choice. It is so much easier to stick to things when you really understand why.

    Trying to back off dairy as much as possible too. That will be hard, but I'll figure it out. Maybe I will work up the courage to try a 30-day dairy-free experiment. I have to admit, the thought makes me sad. I am not yet at the point where I can be happy about what I would be eating instead, which is where I need to get to if I want to succeed. A major part of my dieting success was due to finding all kinds of food that made me happy so I didn't miss the bad stuff. My kids also wanted to lose weight, so they didn't complain when I completely stopped buying desserts. Now it can be kicking around the house and I don't care. I so want to get my metabolism on a healthy track, I can ignore it. There is a pile of home-made chocolate chip cookies in the cookie jar that my niece insisted on sending home with my son, and I haven't even sampled a crumb. When I test to see if wheat products make me sick, I want it to be with a bowl of gourmet pasta or something like that, not a measly little cookie. If I ever work up my courage to do it, LOL! I don't know what scares me more, that it will make me sick and I will suffer, or that it won't make me sick and that will make it easy to succumb to temptation. Maybe it's better just to stay scared.

    Architect Son will be coming down next weekend. He will be here for Canada Day, and we'll celebrate his birthday in advance while we're at it. Looks like I might have to whip up another coconut pound cake...

    Yeah pay no attention to the jar! it's not worth it. Especially all the other ingredients in them blah. It won't help you get where you want to be and stay there, it's not worth it.

    You are very strong willed and are approaching this like a cat very aware of what might happen. Good for you!

    CM, that's one of the advantages of getting older. After you've made the same mistakes over and over and over again, you get sick of them.

    Score! I was looking sadly at the big jar of hot salsa in the fridge. No more nacho nights. What do I do with the stuff? And then it came to me. Omelet! And I finally managed to get the technique for making the darn things, so it was almost as classy-looking as a restaurant omelet. I did strain the salsa a bit to remove excess liquid and warmed it gently in a little pot so I could just slide it onto the eggs, fold, and serve. And yes, I added extra-old cheddar because I'm not trying THAT hard to avoid dairy.

    If I develop too much of a taste for these things, I might have to continue buying salsa...

    Hey Judg,

    Thanks for dropping in on my journal. It's so nice go get friendly faces and comments when I least expect it! Congrats on your weight loss! Goal will be here in no time. I'd like to develop the fear that you have for eating the bad stuff. A little fear could help me out, especially around 8pm, my snacking hour... EEKS!

    I also love salsa with chicken thighs, colorful peppers, and onion. It's sort of a deconstructed fajita, yummy yummy!

    Sounds good! Pre-planned snacks might help. Sitting right at the front of the fridge, in appropriate helping sizes.

    I had a wedding shower to go to last night, but I didn't go. I had even gone out to buy a present, getting my walk in to do so (and the 30 minutes spent wandering around the giant IKEA should count for something too) but by evening the batteries were flat, so I begged off. You see, I'm being good and not pushing myself. I spent the evening listening to music in bed instead. I had a pretty good night's sleep, and so am starting to feel a bit stronger, but I still plan on being very careful.

    My weight had only edged up a tiny bit this morning, which is pretty cool. Usually after a new low, there is a jump the next day, probably because the new low was due to being particularly empty. And yet I ate eggs, and nuts, and liver, and chocolate (too much!) yesterday. And cherries and a banana and almond butter and red pepper. Not exactly your classic diet food.
