A sister with Ulcerative Colitis told me about a "diet" to treat the painful and uncomfortable symptoms that we live with every day. I use the term "diet" in the loosest sense of the word because it really is a lifestyle change. It involves cutt... Read more

I did it. A whole month without stepping foot on the scale. Even when I had to go to the doctor, I didn't ask what my weight was and I didn't peek at the scale. At least I accomplished SOMETHING. I just wish I could enjoy it more. I'm so tired. ... Read more

Next weekend is the CA in Fremont. I have to rent a car AND pay for two nights at a hotel. I've GOT to get a jogging stroller. My poor little umbrella stroller seems to be holding up well enough for now, but I'm too tall for it. I have to bend o... Read more

I am so tired. Just TIRED of everything. I'm sure I'll feel differently later, but right now I just feel tired of tracking my food and exercise, tired of doing all those things that earn spark points. So, I might have to take a little break from... Read more

I have cheated on my "diet" so many times this past month, it should divorce me! I am a food philanderer. I think my fatigue might be due to anemia. I have had problems with anemia since I was first hospitalized because of the UC. My GI took me ... Read more

I tried my goal pants on this morning and I'm not shrinking at all. To say the least, that was discouraging. I am still exhausted and a little sore, so I'm gonna eat a ton of protein today and get some "active rest". I cleaned the house a little... Read more
