Topics I've Started

Mom Never Told Me I Was A Sick Baby...

20 January 2013 - 01:51 AM

My mom just passed away a couple of weeks ago and I've been at her house going through some of her things. Among them was a little journal in which she was writing about me as a toddler, and a kindergarten report card that were very interesting...

Mom wrote that I used to throw up when I ate, and that I had a lot of intestinal problems that no one could figure out. I had unexplained fevers.

My kindergarten teacher wrote that she was concerned I was missing so much school because of a mysterious "bug" I kept catching.

I put that together with my current blood tests and genetic test, wondering now if gluten has ALWAYS been a problem for me.

Hip-Hip Hooray!

I am so pumped, I have lost five pounds (after months of trying!).

I am back in my regular jeans, it feels soooooo GOOD!

Not only that, but I went to urgent care for a sore throat and cough that just won't quit, and when they did my blood pressure I was a full 10 points lower on both systolic and diastolic than I've been in YEARS!!!

This primal/paleo eating is CRAZY GOOD!

:D :D :D

Can Not Lose! Just A Little Venting Among Friends...

04 October 2012 - 01:26 PM

I've been gluten free since May, with one stumble in August.

I've been pretty much primal for about 3 weeks now. I've been cutting calories, increasing exercise, and cannot lose an ounce! I piled on 15 pounds in three months while gluten loading for a blood test last winter/spring.

Three weeks ago I weighed in at 180 pounds, this morning I am still 180 pounds! I am 5' 6.5" tall.

I checked with online diet calculators and I'm averaging about 1200 calories a day.

I do not snack. I don't even use dressing on my salad! It is getting quite depressing.

Ugh. Thanks for listening. I just want to cry!

Grain-Free Pizza!

02 October 2012 - 02:25 PM

I recently decided to go to modified primal eating/SCD along with my oldest daughter. One of the foods I miss a LOT is pizza.

She found a grain-free pizza crust recipe that we tried for the first time last night, we LOVED it!

It does not come out with the same soft, stretchy kind of crust that wheat flour makes, it's a little denser but neither is it the thin, crisp crust of rice-flour based crust.

It can be thicker or thinner depending on how you spread the dough out, the big thing for me is that after baking, you can EAT WITH FINGERS! Most of the grain-free crusts don't hold up for that!

DD says it is a little like the Amy's cornmeal crust, as far as texture goes.

Anyway, we liked it and it will now be a standard at our house for pizza night. We did the toppings differently than the original recipe, but here's the link (it is at the Against All Grains site).

Having A Baby! Hooray!

30 August 2012 - 07:39 AM

Not me. At my age wouldn't that be a hoot!

My youngest daughter is pregnant with her first child, and after reaching the 2-week late stage she is being induced this morning! Finally going to meet my grandson, my very first grandbaby!

Excited and scared here, I was drafted for coaching!
