    I found this article while researching my own ailment (I am acetaldehyde dehydrogenasse deficient, I get that red glow after a few sips of alcohol and other fermented things, not everytime but it's a gradual build up of a chemical called acetaldehyde)

    Supposedly is linked to CFS syndrome and aerobic activites - which explains a lot. I thouhgt these two articles would be of interest to you.

    Hope you are having a great day.
    I have been studying and working Hubby wants to know why I am tired all the time I think I may have found the answer of why I feel better when I don't go running, and why I feel so crappy for about 4 days after I have a "great run" -
    Thank you for being my lightbulb!

    Ummm, WOW on the number! That is totally awesome! Way to stick to it. You have such a great attitude.

    I hit a lower number today too. Not my lowest, still have another 20 to go for that, but it's progress. Thanks for the encouragement a few pages back. I think of it often and picture you in your boots telling me to keep it up and keep going.

    You need to take a picture of you rockin' the skirt on Sunday! And remember to smile this time so you won't catch so much grief around here

    I like the sound of your fudge, am going to try that in tiny amounts once I start on the coconut oil. Seems like a tasty way to get it in and I bet the kids and DH will be on board that one too! Congratulations on the new number! Exciting stuff - yup, I second the request for a pic in the black pencil skirt!

    I know this sounds weird, but I forgot to have supper last night. I didn't even realize it till bedtime. And I felt great. Woke up feeling great. I ate just before noon today out of principle, because I am going to go out errand-running and didn't want to push myself too hard. But it was out of principle. I still felt fine and unhungry. Reprised yesterday's meal because I liked it so much, this time with garden-fresh cherry tomatoes that are ripening on my counter. FIL grows a lot of tomatoes...

    No new low today, but I find that when I am putting so little into my digestive tract, it is in no particular hurry to empty out the little that is there. But I held the line, which probably means a small weight loss overall. No two-pound bounce-up, like so often happens after a new low. If I continue to feel fine, I will keep pushing a little. I would kind of like to lose the next 12 pounds in less than a year.

    Thanks CM. I don't know what I did to turn your light bulb on, but so much the better. I will check those articles out after my errand-running.

    LOL! Glad to be an encouragement. This can be done. And there is nothing wrong with slow and steady. Heck, even slow and erratic is pretty good. We chisel a little off here, a little off there, and in the end it means something. And that way, our skin sags less and we don't have to watch our weight ballooning up again right away, as happens to most people who take it off too fast.

    Pictures will be iffy for a while. Hubby purloined the camera. I do have DS's crappy one, which he left behind because his iPhone takes better pictures, but as of yet no way to connect it to the computer.

    That was my experience too, which got me thinking about fasting, at first IF and then full on.

    I have occasionally forgotten to have meals before, but not when I had been eating so little. I had had only one very modest meal during the day. And two squares of chocolate, LOL! Mustn't forget the chocolate.

    Anyway, I will be checking the other journals later. I really must get moving.

    Well, I cracked tonight. I came home tired. I wasn't conscious of being hungry, but I must have been, because while I was making supper, I found myself eating sour cream by the spoonful. Quite a lot of it. And then I had a full meal: pork liver with bacon and onions, roast pumpkin (with yet more sour cream), and some of the leftover green beans in tomato sauce. I suppose it was the sour cream that was the overkill; the rest was pretty reasonable.

    So now I'm sipping on my mint tea, with the fullest tummy I've had in a while. I find that when I've been on short rations for a while, I eventually get to a point where I have to feast. Oh well. Hope it doesn't jack up my numbers too much tomorrow.

    In my defense, I did walk 2.5 km today, not counting the walking in the various stores I went to. That grocery store is humongous too...

    It was Be Nice to Judg Day, which was fine with me. The teller at the bank gave me two free coupons and a pen when she found my birthday was coming up, the barista (who was chatting with me in line at the bank - he's been working at that coffee shop for years) actually pre-warmed my mug for me (!) and the bus driver gave me a freebie ride on top of it! The ticket machine was broken when I got on, and when I came to pay him later, after he got a flying fix at the station, he just issued me the proof of payment for free. I don't know what got into everybody, but I'm not complaining!

    I did that last week with Kerrygold grass fed butter! I ate a big chunk of it like it was cheese. I've always loved butter, even at the height of the low-fat, saturated-fats-will-kill-you-dead madness. One of my earliest memories is of my Grandfather (who I resemble) sitting with me on his knee , buttering toast for everybody at breakfast and when finished, putting a big pat of butter onto his tongue and a little one on mine.

    I remember the butter in Ireland (and all of Europe) being very yellow and tasty and when I saw (on this site) that Kerrygold was grass fed, I got some and had my way with more of it than I care to admit! Then ate a big dinner too.

    Sometimes after getting out of the sugar rut, our bodies cry out for healthy things and I think it's wise to listen.

    Well, if sour cream counts as a probiotic, you are definitely in good shape. I need mint tea just reading it. Rich, yes?

    I don't think I've ever had pork liver. Is it yummy?

    Sounds like a good day. Love those kind.
