Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

sometimes, I think I'll do a two-week gluten challenge just to lose a quick 10 pounds..... :ph34r:

Just because it's gluten causing the diarrhea instead of a laxative, doesn't mean it's not bulimia. You don't want to go there. ;) You are probably at a healthier weight. I USED to have to watch my weight ... I'm sure when I'm healthy I will again.

My biggest problem now is everything I eat makes me sick. Drinking doesn't, so a latte every day is a good source of calories. With it making me sick, I have little appetite.

Drive by- Been trying to "take care of business"- weeding, paying bills, gardening. Trying to keep my mind occupied. All of a sudden I am NERVOUS about my appointment tomorrow. :blink:

Also, speaking of anger and bitterness- I am ANGRY. had two trips booked this winter (DC and San francisco) that I had to cancel due to 'stomach flu". had trip insurance on both luckily. Unfortunately now both United and travelocity are claiming I didn't cancel- I have the stupid travelocity cancellation in writing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: Spent four hours on the phone yesterday until I ended up screaming at someone then realized I had to let it go for awhile.

Wwill not give up the fight! But the warrior must rest for now. Feeling pretty drained.

Looking forward to hearing about all the appts today though.

:angry: Yeah but I was WAY hotter before!!!! :lol::lol::lol: How sad, emaciated is considered so hot......

That one is one of my favorites that I've seen. :D

I am rather famous for those, it's the magnolia (I've done several renditions), quite large and took more than 100 hours, and SO heinous that I"ll never do another one. glad you like it. ;) (oh, also slightly plagiarized from Ehret's illustration from the 1800's :ph34r: ) It's just to show you guys that I don't just paint hallucinogenic Fauve trees. :P

one word - -

HEINOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry: Yes, things like this ARE a fight....how wicked is that? But you must rest.....don't be nervous about your appointment, anxiety won't change the outcome of it at all, except to make you SICK!!!! :o

This is sad but true. The more weight I lose, the more male attention I seem to draw. Seems like they'd like a little more meat on the bones ... especially since the chest seems to just get flatter and flatter as you lose weight. <_<

Keep on travelocity to start since you have the cancelation in writing. After you rest though and preferably not til after your appointment.

I can understand the nervousness and fear of the unknown with what treatment is going to entail. We are here for you......call/email or pm if you need to.

Is your appointment in the morning?

:angry: Yeah but I was WAY hotter before!!!! :lol::lol::lol: How sad, emaciated is considered so hot......

It is very sad, yes. The ones who prefer emaciated women aren't worth it though. Their interest is more in how you look that who you are.......IMO anyway.

Just need to get surgery to augment the chest right? ;) This world is really messed up in it's ideals. <_<

Just wanted to throw in that we don't ALL like the emaciated look.

Or the oversized plastic boobs.

Amen- If one more person tells me how great I look, I'm gonna punch em (not you guys :P ). I keep telling everyone skinny bev= sick bev and curvy bev=healthy bev. :P

Thanks everyone- my appt is at 9 am tomorrow.

If there interest is limited to how you look, I would agree, but for many men, that's just the first attraction, then they get to know the woman beneath the looks ... if there's no substance, a man who has substance will move on.

I know that I could have been accused of being shallow the first time I saw Adam. ;):lol:

Adam tells me sexy is an attitude ... Queen Latifah is living proof that he's right. So, Susan, it's all in the attitude.

Yeah, I get that, too.

I look at actresses now who are as skinny as me or skinnier and I just don't see the appeal. I saw Pirates of the Caribbean last weekend ... I didn't think Keira Knightly looked too thin ... that's scary because my frame of reference is me ... <_< When I'm heavier, I think she looks too thin. LOL

:ph34r:at the first opportunity, I am going to get me some fake boobs. NOT oversized, though. ;)

Because, when I was super skinny, the boobs were proportianate.....now, the new belly necessitates the boobs. ;) All will be fine, then. :)

part 2

OMG - - - SCIENTIFICNESS NEEDED!!! :o

Today my poop was quite solid, but had the WHITE STRIPES in it, just like pre-diagnosis. WTH?? this, I have since learned, is undigested fat. What is going on??????? any ideas? I have not been glutened lately...sometimes there have been SLIGHTLY gluten-suggesting poops - -

and, BTW, is there anyone reading this thread who is ONLY Celiac? maybe I have to pose this question to the entire forum? :unsure:

part 3

Michael Moore is on Oprah, talking about his new film, and the millions of Americans who are "living the American Dream" in that they have health insurance....and how many have been DENIED necessary treatment....I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!

I would address it to the whole forum. I think that others would benefit from that conversation that might not look here ... plus you might get more responses.

I believe since I have an active intolerance to gluten that I would have wound up sick, but since I cut it out early I don't have any experience in that area. Since I have a celiac gene I consider myself celiac as well as the rest of us.

I still think metals are a problem but (outwardly anyway) not as much of one as the rest of those on this thread that have problems with metals. I have been more down this year, don't know that I can blame that on the metals though. Mitch thinks both Talitha and I have the psychological manifestations, primarily, with other manifestations playing a part as well (just that being the main one).

OMG :o ...I LOVE Queen Latifah.....she's always been a favorite....she just has that "attitude"....I go see all of her movies. :D

Sorry...I just had to blurt that out. :lol:

As usual I'm the opposite of everyone here. :rolleyes:

I think I got more attention BEFORE I lost weight.

I'm not even sure it has anything to do with weight though...

I think when I was healthy I just was alot more happy....more extroverted, full of life, laughing alot, etc. Now I dont have that same energy....I probably dont laugh or smile nearly as much....even if I look exactly the same...I find people take more notice when a person is looking happy and smiling.

Thats what draws me to a person.....I notice a smile before anything else. If the person didnt smile...I may walk right past without ever noticing them.

Since I gained weight back...I'm not that far off from where I was before getting sick. The main difference is how I feel on the inside...and it does show on the outside when I'm feeling bad, tired and just not having that certain "glow" of happiness. People notice that.

rachel is it ok for me to do the whey and chlorella now?

Lisa...I posted responses to these questions for you a couple times.....maybe you missed my posts??

I'll have to look for the posts and re-post them. I think one was from just earlier today (maybe 1 or 2 pages back) but I'm not able to go back to certain pages I've previously viewed. I'll try to look for it later.

If someone saw my post to Lisa about whey from earlier today can you repost it?? I cant go back to the last couple pages...I get "error" messages. :angry:

Oh Andrea- He's a piece of work. People either love him or hate him. He did Roger and Me about what happened in Michigan when the car industry tanked, Bowling for Columbine and Farenheit 911. I like his work, but his persona is beginning to drive me nuts :rolleyes:

He's very outspoken but he brings A LOT of awareness to anything he researches so I'm glad his next movie is health care!

Here's the post from 10:59 this morning from Rachel. I didn't copy the part about castor oil packs....

Lisa...I do think you should take the whey....just not in the massive amounts that your Dr. suggested.

How much did you take when you got a reaction to it....was it alot??

Too much of anything at once is gonna be a shock to your system....especially something that promotes detox. Too much will make you feel worse.

I started out with about 1/3 of a scoop and then worked my way up...I'm at one scoop now. I havent had any problems with it at all....and I actually like the taste of it. Another good thing to take is minerals....multi-minerals.

The one I take is free of everything except the minerals....no vitamins....no other "extra stuff".

This is the one my Dr. sent to me...

http://www.amazon .com/Cardiovascular-Resea...s/dp/B00014GCWK

The reason she has me on this is to build up the minerals in my body because they are usually depleted during chelation. You need adequate amounts of minerals during the detox period and to replace what might get lost during chelation.

Seems like the minerals and amino acids in the whey go a long way in protecting our bodies from toxic metals. When we get better...its probably a good idea to keep taking this stuff for the added protection....too much of some minerals can be bad too but not enough definately leaves room for mercury to settle in.

After you get all your amalgams out you will probably want to be tested for vit/mineral deficiencies.

Lisa...basically with the chlorella you should just go slow with it and see how well you tolerate it. If you can tolerate it...you can slowly increase the amount you're taking. Dont just start out taking alot of anything all at once. Ease yourself into it.

You had asked about cilantro drops and I said to not do these unless you are also taking chlorella...because cilantro by itself does not remove mercury from the body....it just moves it around.

I suggested starting out with the drops on your wrists, ankles and kidney area. Take some chlorella....see how well you tolerate it...if its ok...then later on you can try taking some cilantro drops in your water or something. Not alot of drops....just maybe 1 or 2 drops.

Everything has to be done in baby steps.
