When I first went gluten free, I gained 15 pounds in the first month-I

have stretch marks from it. But it was ALL in the hips, my butt like,

exploded. So for almost a year after that I kept ramming into things

with my hips because they were bigger than I was used to! I mean,

the first 15 came quickly, but I continued to gain weight that year, and

it was mostly in the hipp-al area. Constant bruises, it was pretty funny

honestly.

 

I still do stuff like misjudge the swing of the door on the car I've had

for FIVE YEARS and crack my head or my arm or some unusual part

of my anatomy..... I'm an expert faller, I've never broken anything from

falling down and I most CERTAINLY should have..... :ph34r:

You know, I've never actually broken anything from falling either. I don't think jumping off a swingset when I was like 7 or 8 counts. And I don't mean swinging high and jumping off a swing. I climbed the set onto the top metal pole and jumped off. It was in the yard and my mom yelled at me constantly that if I didn't knock it off I was going to break something. Eventually I did. :ph34r: I hobbled into the house, ate dinner and went to bed walking as well as I could and saying I didn't feel well. I didn't want to tell my mom I hurt myself and get in trouble. FYI, going to bed with a broken foot and ankle means you can't get a cast because it will be too swollen in the morning.

 

It isn't all clumsiness. Sometimes it is plain stupidity. :lol:

I've totally walked straight into a glass door at a shoe store. It was open when I went in! My friends didn't let me live that one down for a while, and damn my head hurt!

When brain-foggy, I'll often think I've done things I haven't, or assume I haven't and do it again. I do a lot of walking into the kitchen instead of the copy room here at the office (next to each other) to, you know, get my printing from the fridge.

Lately I keep putting my clothes into the washing machine, walk away while its filling up, and come back an hour late to discover I forgot to put the lid down! argh!

 

But yes, definitely less brain-fog idiocy when not glutened. The rest is just natural.

Hahaha Keeping the copies in the fridge should be standard practice. That way I could always find them!  ;)  I feel you on the washing machine, I just ran an entire cycle WITHOUT the clothes in there. FACE.PALM.

Hey Irish!  Yeah, I'm still ok. Physically, if not mentally. HA!  Hanging in there and counting down the hours.  :wacko:

A clean washing machine is a good washing machine. I have never done that one, but I have put the wet clothes in the dryer

and then, failed to start it. DUH!

 

well, Amy if nothing else, you are convinced of the reality of gluten head and no matter what your test results say,

I think you know what needs to be done.

 

now, if you will excuse me, I have to go check to make sure I actually put the food in the slow cooker this morning before turning it on and walking away. :mellow:  :D

This morning I straight shot myself in the face, eyes wide open with Aqua d'Gio cologne.  Brutal.  I also went all "Rick Perry" on a coworker...  I was making three points about the question at hand...  After the second point there was a long pause and then I said...  "Well, I forgot the third one...  Oops..."
