    Must Lose Weight! they say, one must get back on the horse.

    I am done with diets. But let me start at the beginning...not with my birtb but with my teenage years. I was always a little bigger than some girls, but not necessarily because I was fat. I justgot never felt tiny or petite. In high school I vacillated between 125 and 140I pounds, never truly happy with my weight. I am5' 5". When I hit college my weight got up to 160 or so. After college I discovered fast food and ballooned to about 200 lbs. I figured out how to quit my fast food addiction and yet I still managed to reach my top weight of 236 lbs. Then, weight watchers got me down to185. I had kept that weight off for 2 years. But then I met and married my husband and the weight returned and before I knew it I was back to 236.

    I had a miscarriage. Then I had gall bladder surgery. Then I started experiencing daily episodes of severe diarrhea. I was no longer safe to live my life. Kayaking was no longer a treat or hiking for that matter. A year went by as I tried to pinpoint the problem. It turned out that I had the genetic marker for celiac disease although my biopsy was normal. I quit wheat cold turkey. Within a month the diarrhea ended. I lost about 5 pounds. A few months later I got pregnant. I barely gained weight until the end. After birth I lost an additional 15 pounds. Over the following year I would many sugary things. I gained back thise 15 pounds. Then I saw the show about food addiction and realized it was time to do away with sugar so I. did. I also officially gave up dairy which I had been struggling to give up. I lost 10 pounds pretty quickly.

    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
