WOE: 90%/10% Primal and Low-Carb
Primal and Paleo are very similar.
Paleo is real clean: no processed foods, no dairy, no grains. Basically like our caveman ancestors ate.
Primal is a little more lenient: you can have dairy, bacon and sausage as long as it's relatively "clean"; natural sweeteners.

Thanks for the info, Dottie. I think Primal is what I would eat if I left low carb. I'm thinking of going wheat free again, too. So, it would fit right in. My DH & I went wheat free about 2 years ago, after I read wheat belly. I don't know why we stopped except for the fact we're carb addicts!! The crazy part is that we both felt soooooo good eating wheat free!

I have absolutely no scientific backing for this, but (for me) I think my seasonal allergies are worsened by wheat.
I am only going by my experiences and hindsight lol.

Sounds like a good plan, Dottie. Especially along with JUDDD. One day I'm going to cut the carb strings for real. Maybe.

I got my hair cut short. I just got home from my appointment and I am so happy with the way it turned out. Tomorrow will be the test, as to whether I can actually style it so it looks as good as it does now lol.

That doesn't surprise me, Dottie! With so many things being GMO, there probably a lot of us with allergies due to wheat or other grains. If I decide to eventually do primal, I'll let you know. You may have some secrets I need to know!!

Ahhh, pictures...maybe tomorrow, if I'm feeling brave.

I don't know why my signature doesn't show my age right. I wrote the age, plus I have that it can show my age, but still has me a year younger. Oh well, I wouldn't mind time stopping for a bit.

Anniversary of being in 130s (and less) for 1 year

I was rummaging about in some of the old weigh-in threads and trying to reconstruct what I'd lost, when, and how I was eating at the time.

Anyway, today, 10 April 2013 is when I entered the 130s for the first time since the accident in 2009 (ignoring that I must have passed that decade on the way up): April Daily Weigh in

I'd been dancing around my 140lbs bogey man for some time (that was the number that broke my spirit at the end of 2011/start of 2012 after a year of non-stop restriction and then everything went awry and I went away from JUDDD) and then, after the reboot in January 2013, and another plateau, I just dropped into the new decade at 138.8lbs. I hit 140lbs on 15 April but we'd been travelling and my knees were very swollen, however, I've never seen 140 since.

Today, I weigh 116.6lbs: I'm 22.2lbs down on this time last year. I'd never have thought it possible then.

Thank you, all of you, for your support and encouragement in this: it would never have been achieved without you.

Today, I want to say how struck I am by all the difficulties of life reflected here. I believe we all have things we are dealing with, whether it's illness, tragedy, work related,.....you name it. My life is pretty stress-filled. Some good stress, some not so much.

It's important to me, That every one of you know how much I care about you and what's going on with you. I can't reach out individually, but I am here to say I think about all these things with heartfelt compassion daily, and support you all in my heart and in my s.

May every BUDD with his or her own individual needs, be comforted, and have peace with all the right answers, today and forever.


This is me on a strong day with love,

Dottie- grains make my allergies much worse. Since eliminating them, I have almost NO issues(as opposed to always having to carry a box of kleenex). And if I indulge, it doesn't take long for me to see some snuffles starting up again.

SlowSure- I love seeing your progress. Having long-term successes like you on the board is so inspiring.

Librarygirl- let's see it!

This is Honey's 9th Down Day in a row, after starting up again. I am so pleased for him, that he is getting back in the swing. I am doing 4:3 right now, so we are out of sync this week, but we are both sticking to our rotations and supporting each other. Although, I confess, I was eyeing his steak with a little jealousy last night. Mmmmm, steak!

Dottie, my doctor definitely agrees with even slight food allergies exacerbating seasonal ones. She had me avoid certain foods in spring and fall. I think it helped.

Astonishing performance tho' Mimi was a stand-in for the billed soprano who was ill.It was such an assured and accomplished performance, it's astonishing to think that Opolais must have had <5hrs from being asked if she'd do this to actually walking onto the stage.

Opolais was visibly overcome at her reception when she took her curtain calls.

Staging and production were Zeffirelli’s legendary, cinematic production which recreates 19th century Paris onstage with 106 supernumeraries (crowd, circus people, children's chorus). The cinema audience also got to see what goes on behind the scenes when they break down a scene and use one of the 3 wagons to bring a complete set forward.

I'm so utterly delighted every time that I see one of these broadcasts. It's such a privilege.
Slow, I got to see this last night! Moment after moment of pure aural gorgeousness. Rudolfo gets my vote as best performer; however, I especially enjoyed Marcello's performance. I thought he was a standout.

Most mystifying to me was why the principal cast took a curtain call after the first act. have I missed out on some trend?

My diet is super-low-carb but not gluten free, so on the rare occasion when I eat a wheat cracker like Wasa crispbread, or when I have a GG's Scandinavian crispbread, I start having an asthma attack. And here's the catch: I have never had asthma before. Ever! It took a few times before I recognized the asthma attack for what it was; the first few times it happened I just thought I was choking or having a random coughing fit. But then I started noticing it happened every time I ate a wheat-based cracker. I also found out that it happens just from inhaling the air near a wheat cracker, especially if the cracker has been broken apart. I found out I am allergic to wheat! Who knew?

I developed what they called "exercise-induced asthma" at about 45 years old after never having asthma before. Not one doctor seemed concerned about its origin and just gave me an inhaler.

I figured out it is being caused by dairy products. No dairy and I breathe freely.

Softball update, apropos of nothing, but just thought I'd share:

Keira is one of the worst 2 players on her team. To be fair, it's her first year playing, and she's one of the youngest as well. Last night, she got walked to first base. She stole 2nd. Another player hit and she ran to third. The coach told her "Down" as she was nearing third, so she slid. Um, yeah, she was 3 feet away from the base and had to reach out with her hand to touch it. She vindicated herself, though, by running home on the next hit ball, and slid beautifully into home, narrowly missing being tagged out! Her main issue is confidence, and I'm seeing good things happening in that department.

When we practice, just the two of us, she's much better than she is at team practices and in games. I'm sure it's because she doesn't want to mess up in front of her team mates. I'm the same way; overly cautious until I "know" I can do something. I think she's getting there, and she's already talking about next season.

I have no history of asthma, except when I laugh uncontrollably, I often end up in an insane coughing fit. I wonder if there's "laughter-induced asthma." Off to Google.

ETA: From Science Daily

Nobody knows how laughter brings on asthma, but it might involve hyperventilating, Dr. Garay said. He noted that exercise was the only trigger more common in people with laughter-induced asthma compared with asthma not induced by laughter (61% of people with LIA vs. 35% of asthma patients without LIA).

Dr. Garay was struck by how common laughter-induced asthma is. "It's as common as some of the most well-known asthma triggers, such as grasses, trees, pollen, fumes and odors, and it's even more common than dust mites, allergy to animals and molds," he said. "It's a little-appreciated frequent trigger."

The study found that the most common symptom in patients with laughter-induced asthma was coughing, which generally starts within two minutes. The next most common symptom was chest tightness.

How much laughter can set off breathing problems? "It depends on the patient," Dr. Garay said. "For a majority of patients, mild laughter or even a chuckle will set off coughing. For others, laughing hard will bring on asthma symptoms."


Who knew?!

It's good to know I'm not totally off base about the seasonal allergy connection then
As for asthma, I've used my ventolin a lot these past 2 months, more than I have in the last 2 years combined.

Microwave ovens are now so amazingly robust that they can survive an internal fire/explosion (tho' you're well advised to get a safety check if such a startling event were to occur).
I wonder who you might be talking about? Hmmm? I'll try real hard not to replicate that little experiment.

My guy can't come to install it tomorrow afterall. So it'll be Saturday morning instead.

Oh, I'm glad to hear that. I've been wondering if it will be weird to have it up like that. Thanks!

You have to try again for a good picture. I have to live vicariously through girls like you and Dawn. I'm terrified to cut my hair short!

Anyway, today, 10 April 2013 is when I entered the 130s for the first time since the accident in 2009 (ignoring that I must have passed that decade on the way up): April Daily Weigh in

I'd been dancing around my 140lbs bogey man for some time (that was the number that broke my spirit at the end of 2011/start of 2012 after a year of non-stop restriction and then everything went awry and I went away from JUDDD) and then, after the reboot in January 2013, and another plateau, I just dropped into the new decade at 138.8lbs. I hit 140lbs on 15 April but we'd been travelling and my knees were very swollen, however, I've never seen 140 since.

Today, I weigh 116.6lbs: I'm 22.2lbs down on this time last year. I'd never have thought it possible then.

Thank you, all of you, for your support and encouragement in this: it would never have been achieved without you.
Wow, Slow! You have done brilliantly, and I'm so happy for you! Thank you for always being here to support the rest of us as we push closer and closer to the goal line.

I love hearing about JUDDDing DHs! Being out of sync would be weird, but not impossible. But next week you'll be back in sync!

It took a few times before I recognized the asthma attack for what it was; the first few times it happened I just thought I was choking or having a random coughing fit. But then I started noticing it happened every time I ate a wheat-based cracker. I also found out that it happens just from inhaling the air near a wheat cracker, especially if the cracker has been broken apart. I found out I am allergic to wheat! Who knew?
Wow! It's good that you figured it out so quickly.

You guys are really good at ferreting out what causes your problems! Impressed!

Keira is one of the worst 2 players on her team. To be fair, it's her first year playing, and she's one of the youngest as well. Last night, she got walked to first base. She stole 2nd. Another player hit and she ran to third. The coach told her "Down" as she was nearing third, so she slid. Um, yeah, she was 3 feet away from the base and had to reach out with her hand to touch it. She vindicated herself, though, by running home on the next hit ball, and slid beautifully into home, narrowly missing being tagged out! Her main issue is confidence, and I'm seeing good things happening in that department.

When we practice, just the two of us, she's much better than she is at team practices and in games. I'm sure it's because she doesn't want to mess up in front of her team mates. I'm the same way; overly cautious until I "know" I can do something. I think she's getting there, and she's already talking about next season.
I'm exactly that way too, Dawn. I'm so glad she's enjoying it, and you know she'll just get better and better. You guys can laugh at the "early days" in years to come!

ETA: From Science Daily

Nobody knows how laughter brings on asthma, but it might involve hyperventilating, Dr. Garay said. He noted that exercise was the only trigger more common in people with laughter-induced asthma compared with asthma not induced by laughter (61% of people with LIA vs. 35% of asthma patients without LIA).

Dr. Garay was struck by how common laughter-induced asthma is. "It's as common as some of the most well-known asthma triggers, such as grasses, trees, pollen, fumes and odors, and it's even more common than dust mites, allergy to animals and molds," he said. "It's a little-appreciated frequent trigger."

The study found that the most common symptom in patients with laughter-induced asthma was coughing, which generally starts within two minutes. The next most common symptom was chest tightness.

How much laughter can set off breathing problems? "It depends on the patient," Dr. Garay said. "For a majority of patients, mild laughter or even a chuckle will set off coughing. For others, laughing hard will bring on asthma symptoms."


Who knew?!
Ha! I think I've had that a time or two.

Awesome!! I'm so happy for you! 116!!! (And jealous )

Cindy, I'd love to see the new hairdo...
I had no idea laughter induced asthma was a real thing, but let me tell you, it's happened to me a few times after laughing really hard, pretty scary.

We just made plans to visit my parents for the first time. We are going the last week in May. We are being brave right now and planning to stay with them. If we can't take it after a day or 2 we can probably get a room somewhere.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm nervous. I haven't spent a night in my parent's home in almost 17 years

I love them, but my mom's OCD is a little over the top for me. That is saying a lot, because I'm pretty OCD myself.

I'm not sure how DW really feels about it either.
