So, I had to call all my clients & tell them I can't come clean their homes/give them baths. I felt irresponsible, and stupid. Like duh! I obviously can not eat certain things anymore. Why am I so damn stubborn! I am feeling better because of how I have changed my diet. That does not mean that I can go back to my old eating habits.
Just like when someone is depressed and feels better. Or takes an antibiotic. You can't just stop taking your medicine because you feel better. You feel better BECAUSE the medicine is working!!
I do not have celiac disease. Which is very good. But for some reason, halfway through my life. (I'm 46 years old) I can not have certain anythings anymore. I have an ulcer that doesn't feel too great. So I can not have lemonade, juices, most fruits or anything acidic. I can't even have apples. Which people don't really think of being acidic. But they make me nauseous too. And too much acid, or dairy aggravates my ulcer. Glutenous foods effect my stomach and my whole entire body. So my food choices have changed in a big big way. I do not eat bread, I do not eat anything like cake, brownies, cupcakes, pancakes, foods that are breaded or battered. Nothing with flour or whey. Such as buns, tortillas, no crackers, no chips (unless they are all natural blue corn), no saltines. No gravies, no pasta. And I quit drinking my 3 bottles of orange sunkist pop a day too :)
BUT I have lost 25 lbs woohoo!!! It's SO much fun buying new clothes, and fitting back into old ones that still look & feel like new! wooohoo!!!
