My Thanksgiving was safe…

well safer. I did my best not to eat gluten anything. I figured I would just give it a try for Thanksgiving. I feel fine today.

My dh’s cousin is cutting into a pie and she says, “this pie is dairy and gluten-free.” My jaw dropped right that moment. Turns out she has been dairy and gluten-free because of how sick she has been. Her doctor’s found nothing wrong with her. So, after some research she gave it a try. She was better until she went back to the doctor and he made her go back on gluten for testing. She had tests on Wednesday and stopped eating gluten and dairy right away.

So, we got to talk all about gluten free and dairy free. We talked about the link to a gfcf for those on the spectrum as well. She knew the prophet had Asperger’s (she works with children) even though no one had shared his diagnosis with her. It was a great talk. And, it was one of those points in life where you wonder if you are going down the right path…and then some one comes along and reaffirms it for you.

Tea, weightloss,

I love tea. Unlike coffee I can drink it all day long. It doesn’t intervere with my sleep patterns. It doesn’t leave my tummy upset and me running to the bathroom. Plus, there are all kinds of flavors and herbs. Since, my love affair with tea has begun I have yet to find the perfect tea pot. But, now I wonder if I have. If a beautiful red one good enough to make it own my wishlist?

I must loose weight. I feel so out of control. I feel blah. I’m hungry all day long. I want to sleep till an hour before noon. I’m considering trying Gluten Free again. I don’t know if I can. According to Prevention to get back to my ideal weight, why I should be consuming 1354 calories per day. What am I going to eat on that budget? I wish I was taller or just a wee bit less lazy. I’m shooting for around 1500 at this point. But, it’s so easy to go over that.
