About Me

I am Jessica, mom for 2 wonderful boys, Michael, 5, and Dean, 3. I work full time. I am a lactation counselor by trade. Right now I'm in an administrative job to pay the bills.

My husband and I appeared on Dr.Phil. Since then I have had wonderful things happen for me. Dr.Phil has a personal trainer, a nutritionist, and a therapist that I work with on a regular basis (just about every day).

My husband has been really supportive, and helps where he can.

  3. I had this exact same thing. Turns out it was dairy. I was eating gluten-free cheese and stuff. I stay away from cheese and dairy, and i'm fine. Today I had ice cream. I was doubled over. Maybe it's dairy? I read a couple places that a lot of people who have a problem with gluten have a problem with...
