Or you may not care.
Well, I may not care about you either.
Nyah. There. We’re even.
I just didn’t bother to post it, but I will now (just not in picture form). It was 158.8lbs. Today’s is at right. That’s right folks – a whopping .4lb loss – wheeee! But then again, that was after a gain. Blargh.
But you should be happy to note the new spring colour on my toe nails thanks to Sam. Blue, just pour vous :)
I’ve been having weird stomach issues for the past few weeks that lead me to believe that I’ve developed some sort of gluten issue. Really, that’s the only thing that I can think of as I don’t eat a lot of dairy or processed foods, but I’m plagued with the worst stomach cramps known to man after meals. I’m only having my regular stuff (oats & almond butter or egg with toast for brekkie, brown rice/veggies/meat or pasta/veggies/meat for lunch & something similar for dinner – TOTAL creature of habit) so that’s all that I can think of. Do any of you have any other ideas?
Because it’s not crippling pain just an annoying discomfort, I’m going to try something for the next couple of weeks and not be too concerned about weight loss. I’m going to severely limit my intake of starches and I’m going to be eating more like a caveman. A by-product of that will probably be weight loss (but if there isn’t, I’m not going to be too concerned), so there may or may not be a weigh-in next week.
I just need to figure out what’s causing me so much pain and slowly reintroduce things. I don’t think it’s severe enough yet to talk to my doctor, so I’m going to try this for a few weeks. If it still bugs me when I go back breads and pastas in a few weeks, I’ll go get checked at my doctor.
Until then, if it didn’t come from the ground or you can’t kill it, I’m not eating it. It’s more of a Paleo Diet than anything crazy like. Although, that in itself is pretty crazy which is why I don’t think I can stay on it too long. I can’t imagine a world without pasta. I teared up just typing that.
This does NOT mean I’m going carb free. I’m half-Irish, for crying out loud, and in all of those whacked out diets you have to cut out ‘taters. Potatoes are a food group unto themselves, in my opinion. I think “Thou must eat potatoes” was the 11th Commandment.
But this is just my opinion. I admire the people who can make it a lifelong change and do well on it. I just don’t think I can.
I just want to get to the root of this discomfort so I’m willing to try it for a spell before harassing my poor ol’ doc.
So here’s hoping I can figure it out on my own.
