Jarvae - I have a friend who is always pasty-white and a super-sensitive drama queen. She is in constant pain from her joints, and has a bad back and itchy skin, and can dissolve into tears at nothing. She's been like that for the 10 years I've known her.
She recently had a nasty cold with lots of residual catarrh, and I suggested she gave up dairy. Too much hassle, she said. Then her GP suggested the same thing, and so did another medic she consulted.
I saw her next two weeks later. She had colour in her face for the first time since I've known her. She walked with a spring in her step and a smile on her face. She stopped me to tell me that she had given up dairy and felt instantly better. The joint pain had gone, and the itchy skin. She said she had had a little cheese after a week and the following day her skin had driven her mad.
I asked about the catarrh and she looked surprised. What catarrh?
Weigh in day: down another 4.8 lbs., for a total of 8.6 lbs. I KNOW this will not continue and my body is just adjusting to a change, but I'll take everything I can get.
Honestly, I can say I have been doing my best at choosing healthy foods. Not very many times in my life have I been able to say that! I feel so determined to change the way I look. I've been seeing some really cute clothes that I would like to be able to wear. Now, I know I'm 44, and will never be the cute, young thing I once could have been, but I want to feel confident in myself again and at least be able to have clothes that look half way trendy.
Thanks to you all, I've had some really good breakfasts the last couple of days. It's been a nice change off of oatmeal.
Good morning ladies.....I have been out of the loop for some time but came across this subject on health and read some of your postings...I joined weight watchers a month ago and dropped out last night after deciding I didn't need to be paying $48 a month to weigh me...wasn't getting much out of the meetings either...but I do know how to do the points etc...and turned to the free app " My Fitness Pal" to keep track of everything I eat...I have lost 8.6 lbs in the past 5 weeks so I am happy also I joined the Y and am doing water Arobics which I am passionate about;). I just wanted to offer another breakfast recipe that is very yummy and healthy....here goes: Take 1 whole egg and 1 egg white and mix ...In another small bowl smash 1 bananna...now mix the eggs and banana together then spray your small frying pan with Pam and pour in the mixture and cook like a pancake....You now have a healthy pancake....add a little lite syrup....everyone at the weightwatchers meeting were raving about it!! give it a try
Hiya! I have been terrible this week!! We've been busy, and had other things going on, so I haven't eaten very well, and haven't exercised either. I'm not going to beat myself up about it though. I plan to have a good weekend, not go overboard, and get back on track next week.
Deep snow here so been clearing up the front paths...thats good exercise but good wholesome food not a salad in site might not have helped..weigh in Tues so fingers crossed.
good Luck everybody
