Last Night...

Recommended Posts

Like I said last week, I've been feeling really well. I haven't had the runs in weeks and weeks. It's been so long since my stomach felt bad that the memory of it is fading...if you know what I mean.

I start to think...hmmm...there's nothing wrong with me....I feel great......and so forth...

So last night I'm sitting around...you know just wanting something...not really sure what, just know I'm not satisfied.

My daughter just graduated from college, and some of our friends were kind enough to bake her a big Chocolate Cake.

In addition to that we still have some of those Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies around.

I finally couldn't stand it any longer and announced I was going to eat some cookies. My daughter followed me in to the kitchen saying "daddy are you sure you want to make your self sick?"

I had one of those Thin Mint Cookies in my mouth....and THEN had reservations and spit it out.

But I wanted it, I wanted it bad. It's like I need a shock collar to zap me every time I start thinking about cookies or cake....

Well i guess it is good u spit it out lol.

Im hoping you go home today and throw away the rest of the thin mints or have a family member eat them all, so you are no longer tempted by them.

I for one got gltuened last night and i have no idea from what, but im feeling terrible.

I sometimes wonder if it is best to get glutened from eating something really good, or getting glutened and having no idea what caused it lol

You do have a shock collar. It just doesn't work until several hour later and it's attached to your intestine :ph34r:

Jerry,

You have a shock collar, it is called aversion therapy. Just think about how sick you will be if you eat the gluten poison.

You might also consider keeping gluten free treats in the house such as ice cream, popcorn or gluten free candy. You can grab this instead of the cookies or cake.

It will get easier to resist temptation the longer you are gluten free.

It sounds like you had an intervention from your daughter, Jerry! ;)

My children are very aware and sensitive to my problem, even though I've only been gluten free since November. But they remember me getting sick. Two weeks ago I accidentally glutened myself by serving them pizza, then forgetting to wash the flour off my hands before I ate. My 10 year old daughter unfortunately walked in on me while I was emptying my stomach, couldn't keep dinner down. And her reaction was, Oh no, Mom, did you have wheat?

It sounds like your daughter is on the ball, that's a blessing...!

No kidding! I mean, if I'm going to get sick, an damage my insides, at least let me know I'm going to be sick. I'm ordering a real pizza and getting a 6-pack of beer. Getting sick because of some ingredient I didn't even know about just sucks.

Your shock collar is a delayed reaction ... it's the bathroom run.

I eventually got sick of getting sick off gluten ... I'm finally starting to think you may be reaching that point! :lol:

Jerryk, man you slay me! I like that you retain your sense of humor with all this...so I am a junk food junkie! It's the hardest part for me living gluten-free...I found 2 cake mixes that are sooo yummy no one will ever know they're gluten-free.

Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Chocolate Cake mix & also their Brownie mix and Namaste cake mixes. Mom made me a Namaste for my 35th bday and my entire family had rude comments (I;m talking Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Siblings) and that they wouldn;t eat it, they wanted store bought...I said Good, cause I plan on eating the whole thing. Yeah, turns out they ate my cake & never touched the store bought! I think both have cookie mixes too, I just haven't tried them yet.

I've tried Pamela's stuff and am not impressed (but i am a junkie!) I'll get their biscotti if I'm travelling but that's about it.

OH OH & Kinnickanic (or whatever) has the BEST chocolate covered doughnuts!!!

Your post reminds me of a quote from the vice principle of my high school. Something along the lines of "That's not really a need, that's a want, even though you think it's a need." (It was in relation to getting the classes we wanted/needed, but really, applies to everything.)

Actually, the best cookie I ever had was from the Whole Foods Gluten-Free Bakehouse in the freezer section. I used to BE a

Girl Scout, ok? If anyone knows about those bloody cookies, it's me. The Whole Foods gluten-free chocolate chip cookie is FAR better

than any girl scout cookie I ever had! And the peanut butter cookies are a close second. I HIGHLY recommend them for

people suffering cookie monster syndrome.

Dear JerryK,

AAAAHHHHH NOOOOOO!!!!! :o You were doing so well! WTH did you do that for? Bad Jerry!

Bad! Where is that darn newspaper to smack you on the nose with?! I have programmed by brain to see anything with gluten (even my beloved Cheez-Its) as rat poison. Now, I pretty much overlook them, like they are not even there.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl
