I have celiac disease. I am scrupulously careful about gluten free eating especially while at home. Getting glutened is, thankfully, a fairly rare occurrence. That said, I have been safely eating Quorn products for the better part of the 5 years... Read more

Started taking the stairs rather than the elevator at work this week. 13.8 pounds ago any stairs left me winded and my knees protesting. Still need to figure out some real exercise soon but that's a pretty major victory. Also blood sugar reading... Read more

I'm down 3 pounds below my previous lowest Spark People weight. This is new territory and only 23 pounds left to Onederland. Something is different this time around. Maybe the years as a food allergy sufferer have finally changed my relationship... Read more

3 weeks. 10 pounds. Blood sugars holding in the normal range. Need to start adding exercise soon but with no air conditioning currently and dangerously high heat indexes it's going to be a bit longer for that. Feeling good. Go me! Onward and dow... Read more

Today is my husband's birthday. I bought him a tiny chocolate cake for he and my daughter to share. I have celiac disease so cake is not on the menu for me even when I'm not trying to lose some weight. The glasses issue makes computer time frust... Read more

Ended up taking the day off from work today because I woke up with a weird double vision thing in my left eye. Turns out that as my blood sugar is lowering my intraocular pressure is also going down which changes my astigmatism and consequently ... Read more

One of the temporary side effects of one of my new medications is dizziness. It hit yesterday. Consequently I did NOT attend my burlesque class nor the swim party that preceded it. Today has been better although today's side effect has been a ra... Read more

Hit my protein goal. Went a bit high on the calories but as lunch was a large order of McDonald's fries (bad planning) that is acceptable to me (it was like 10 calories over). Meds taken. Need to get in a good bit more water before the end of th... Read more

I am one of those annoying people that has to start things on Monday. Don't ask me why...I don't know. I just know that it doesn't work for me if I try it any other way. So while I know roughly what I ate today I only tracked dinner since this ... Read more
