Awwww -- that's howcum we're Buddds -- for support and comfort and sharing ways to get through this journey.

Crocheted most of the evening, until my arthritic thumbs were pretty sore. (Thank heaven for Blue Emu oil, which I'll put on right before I go to bed.) Was trying a new (for me) yarn, Bernat Baby Blanket, which is bulky and unimaginably soft, but a little hard to work (used an N hook to work it at all) because it tends to be kinda grabby. It doesn't want to slide on and off the hook. But it sure will be a warm winter scarf, on that far distant day when it cools down enough here in Texas to need one. It was 102 and muggy today. And at least I didn't munch -- who wants to go to all that work and then get crumbs or grease on it?

Yam Yam, so glad you're ok.

Party, congratulations on stopping smoking.
Can you read while you knit? Guaranteed to keep both hands and mind distracted.

Beadelia, I'm thinking of teaching my GD to crochet. She's mad on loom bands and I think she'd love it. I gave all my stuff away years ago, so I'll have to buy her a hook and some yarn.


Can you believe my cat has just tried to mug me for my bullet-proof coffee??!??

well, my DD was not successful yesterday, lol, but mostly because I had unexpected visitors right around the dinner hour from out of town) that I had to meet at a restaurant (one of them is allergic to cats and I haven't vacuumed all week, lol) , and the day had been so stressful and exhausting and I was just weak and tired. If I had just gone home that day, I would have been fine. Well, I will try again! Eventually I'm going to get this going so that when inevitable life things come up, I will be so established in rotations that I won't be fazed or weak about it!

Birdie - I know what you mean about those inservice days, LOL!! Yeah, most of the year we NEVER get to go out to lunch!

Yam-yam, glad you checked in! <3

Toasty starch (amines), salt and sugar. What's not to love?

More seriously, from a neurobiology viewpoint, I'd say that's what appeals to some people when they experience prolonged highs of cortisol during continued periods of increased stress. There's a reason for the fab German word, Kummerspeck (grief bacon), or the deposition of increased fat round the trunk after stress/grief/long-term distress.

Grief bacon.
Now THAT is awesome!

I do have to add one quibble. Starch =/= amines. Amine groups are nitrogen based compounds, which you would get from the marmite, aka yeast extract. Starch is sugar of course.

I'd say that Cindy was needing the salt.

Fermented products contain amines - wine, beer, soy sauce, tempeh, miso, chocolate, cheese, sauerkraut, and even sourdough bread, so are not not suitable for your strict elimination diet. Plain yoghurt - which is listed as low in amines in the latest RPAH elimination diet handbook - may be a problem if not fresh (very sour and sharp tasting) and eaten in large quantities. As well, despite seemingly failsafe ingredients (eg flour, water, salt), yeast free bread can be made by a long rising process which encourages fermentation and can be a problem for the extra sensitive - bakers' yeast is failsafe and yeasted bread can be safer than yeast-free bread for this reason
Plus the Maillard reaction which is more about the browning of the protein for various reasons.

It's a shame you thought I was expressing starch were amines (particularly when I included the word 'toasty') but I hadn't intended to cause such confusion with my off the cuff attempt at humour. Apologies.

Omg, I just had all of my day's calories for breakfast. Minus about 500. I feel sick. I was so hungry I ate two sausage biscuits and a small cafe mocha.

That reminds me of a day on the original WW in the 70's. Anyone remember the boxes you'd check off for your daily exchanges? I had all the boxes checked off one morning, and I looked up at the kitchen clock as it struck high noon. I said, "Boy, am I in trouble now!"

One thing's for sure, I'm not hungry. I'll probably eat something for dinner, but I'm not too worried about going over. I rarely eat breakfast, and this is not going to happen often.

Can't remember if I told you I had another doctor appointment Monday? If I told you, please ignore my repetitions! She told me she could not emphasize enough the seriousness of my situation and if I had not gone to the doctor/emergency room when I did, I would have died. Serious.

So, I'm alowed to float on my back in the pool and maybe walk around in it every day, but until I heal, no activity, no lifting, no working out. I'm doing light house work, going for walks. Just nothing heavy.

When I'm healed after 8 weeks or so, I'll have a medical procedure in the hospital and get test results. If all is good, then I'll be back to normal.

So, that's the update on me! Now to go back and read up about all of you lovely JUDDDers!!
Gosh, so scary Yam. I am so glad you got to the hospital. Also that you are able to travel and visit with your sisters. I'm glad you (and DH) are taking good care of you!

Oh no, not another thing for me to spend time on online! I have to check out some crochet vids now. I haven't picked up a hook in several years, but used to love to crochet with my grandma.

I just got back from buying a ton of crochet yarn, and now I need to make a bunch of stuff to justify the expense, so hopefully the hand that holds the hook will stay out of the cookie jar -- or something like that.
How is the herbal tea working for you? Do you find it relaxes you and keeps you from snacking? For me right now it's flavored bubbly waters like Sparkling Ice. I love my hot coffee in the morning, but I can't tolerate anything else hot to drink during the summertime.

Oh, do teach her! I treasure my memories of snuggling up next to my grandma as she taught me to crochet and piece patchwork, and then later when we just sat side by side working our projects. She'll love it!

That cat sounds devious! Mrrrrowwwwwrrrrr!

Bummer! Your body must've really been telling you to make up for not much eating lately.

Hi All! I haven't been lurking on here at all for the past few days. I had a Lymes flare up and just had no desire to be on the computer or for much else. Good news is I took a sick day on Tuesday and slept away the entire day. Literally! I slept for 28 hours straight and is was amazing.

My program at work is finally getting offices and luckily I wound up with my own instead of a shared office. I honestly didn't care I was just looking forward to no longer being in a open spaced and having a door.

Now that I've read through the board I see that there's so much happening just in one week. Hugs to everyone in need of one and a big cheesy smile to everyone who is rocking JUDDD and life in general .

Tonight I'm heading out to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a friends (and a few kids) and I'm excited about that. The bad part is the going out to dinner. We're either going to The Cheesecake Factory or Friendly's. Neither of which measure well on the healthy food list.

Flossyliz, Emmylou Hairiest occasionally makes a grab for my tea, but she can be wild enough without a load of caffeine! Actually, caffeine is supposed to be toxic to cats, along with a lot of other things people ingest. This morning I dropped one of my arthritis pills and Emmylou went for it, but I made a dive and thankfully got there first. As you probably know,Tylenol is lethal for cats even in tiny amounts.

Have fun teaching your GD to crochet! She sounds like she's ready for it. Deborah Burger, the author of Crochet 101 (the best of the how-to books in my opinion) has a whole series of videos on YouTube.

SlowSure, grief bacon! I love it! And when you think about it, better bacon than Oreos. Thank you for a useful addition to my vocabulary.

LowCarbGal, I really can't tell yet how well trying to replace munching with herbal teas is going to work, but they do give me a great deal of pleasure so there's hope this could become a new and healthier habit. Right now I'm sipping ginger tea with a shot of lemon (lazy me, I'm using half a packet of True Lemon) and two drops of stevia. Yum. I also have blueberry, raspberry, peach, and of course mint teas, so there's a variety of flavors. They can also be made into iced tea. And like you, I love the sparkling waters, especially the ones with flavor but no sweetener.

Lili, hi back. Glad you dropped in to say hello, but very, very sorry about the Lyme flare-up. By all accounts, that can be truly miserable, both physically and sometimes psychologically. Does Lyme ever go away, or does it stay in your system like malaria?

Cheesecake Factory? Oh, dear, that sounds soooo good! I wonder if they still have the chocolate raspberry truffle. No! Must not even THINK about it!

Anyway, have a good time this evening, and I hope the Lyme leaves you alone. And congratulations on your new office!

Cheesecake Factory has a Skinnylicious menu that I absolutely adore! Lots of options from appies and drinks to full meals, and all under 600 calories each.

Glad you got an office.

Good news to report...my nephew got moved to Dallas yesterday. Now he is only an hours drive from home. He is in a good rehab facility affiliated with one of the largest hospitals. He should get excellent care and hopefully begin to make progress. My brother and his wife will take turns staying with him. Their youngest will leave for her first year of college in a week or so. So glad they got home to spend some time with her before she goes. Thank you all, again, for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.

I am so [pleased to hear this BirdieNell, such a relief for them. Now we have to hope that he make good progress.

Love the reasons for my mini binge, lol. I am happy to report that it was good bread and I toast it to a crisp, Vogel Soya and Linseed. (Info for Slow and Kwerp and others in the UK.)

Good to see you Lisa, how lovely to have your own office. Sorry about the Lyme's flare up but that sleep must have done you the world of good.

Got back to our London home this evening to find the power had gone off while we were away, so I have a freezer full of food to get rid of, once it has re-frozen. Not even prepared to open the door just now. This makes me so mad. I am a baby boomer and food waste is one of my pet hates.

Hullo all, do you mind if I join in with this chat thread?
I have been lurking for ages (trying to summon up the courage to post and introduce myself). You all sound like such wonderful people and I have learnt so much about the JUDDD lifestyle through reading the threads - so thank you for sharing your knowledge.
I'm a 44 year old working mum of 4 girlies and have reached a point of wanting to sort out my weight problem once and for all. Especially as I have let my weight stop me doing things i most enjoy doing with my girls because I felt fat, frumpy and self conscious. Seeing my 15 daughter feel self conscious on holiday, wearing shorts over her bathing suit and not wanting to swim was the wake up call I needed to realise the poor self image example I was setting was harmful for my girls. Now I'm dealing with a mothers guilt and determined to changed this!

Birdie Nell, that is wonderful news and hopeful sounding as well.

Kissa, I don't think you have to be a Baby Boomer to despise losing an entire freezer of food. Terrible waste, and I hate that happened. I guess that is the downside of being a world traveler.

Daisy, welcome!! So pleased for you to join us. I think it's a very good motivation to do something about your weight in order to be the role model you would like to be for your children. I hope you love it here like we do, and I look forward to seeing you around.

Welcome, DaisyDebs. Love your name, and love your reason for wanting to take charge of your weight. With a motivation like that, how can you lose -- or rather, fail to lose?

Hope you love it here as much as I do. Please post often.

Kissa, I'm so sorry about the freezer full of food. That's a pretty big loss, and a pretty big mess for you to have to cope with. Good idea, letting it re-freeze first.

My program at work is finally getting offices and luckily I wound up with my own instead of a shared office. I honestly didn't care I was just looking forward to no longer being in a open spaced and having a door.

Now that I've read through the board I see that there's so much happening just in one week. Hugs to everyone in need of one and a big cheesy smile to everyone who is rocking JUDDD and life in general .

Tonight I'm heading out to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a friends (and a few kids) and I'm excited about that. The bad part is the going out to dinner. We're either going to The Cheesecake Factory or Friendly's. Neither of which measure well on the healthy food list.
Congratulations on your own office! Your own door too...sounds heavenly! I'm so sorry about your Lyme's flareup. You must have really needed that sleep bad. So how was the movie and the dinner out?

LowCarbGal, I really can't tell yet how well trying to replace munching with herbal teas is going to work, but they do give me a great deal of pleasure so there's hope this could become a new and healthier habit. Right now I'm sipping ginger tea with a shot of lemon (lazy me, I'm using half a packet of True Lemon) and two drops of stevia. Yum. I also have blueberry, raspberry, peach, and of course mint teas, so there's a variety of flavors. They can also be made into iced tea. And like you, I love the sparkling waters, especially the ones with flavor but no sweetener.
I love your cat's name - that is too cute! That is so scary when you drop a pill (or a grape with doggies) and have to make a dive to beat them to it. Talk about an adrenaline rush!

Your teas do sound good, and the iced tea is a good idea. For some reason I never make those kinds of teas into iced tea. Don't know why.

So glad they got home to spend some time with her before she goes. Thank you all, again, for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.
Such great news, BirdieNell! I feel for his poor sister having to start this new phase of her life with all this going on. That must be very tough for her. I'll be hoping to see some news of improvements for him soon!

Oh yuck! I don't blame you for being mad. That's a lot of food and money lost.

I have been lurking for ages (trying to summon up the courage to post and introduce myself). You all sound like such wonderful people and I have learnt so much about the JUDDD lifestyle through reading the threads - so thank you for sharing your knowledge.
I'm a 44 year old working mum of 4 girlies and have reached a point of wanting to sort out my weight problem once and for all. Especially as I have let my weight stop me doing things i most enjoy doing with my girls because I felt fat, frumpy and self conscious. Seeing my 15 daughter feel self conscious on holiday, wearing shorts over her bathing suit and not wanting to swim was the wake up call I needed to realise the poor self image example I was setting was harmful for my girls. Now I'm dealing with a mothers guilt and determined to changed this!
Hi DD! Yes, please do join in, and thanks for sharing a bit about yourself. This is a fun group and so supportive. I think your reasons for starting on this journey make perfect sense. You definitely want to help your girls to have great self images, and it's important for you to get that too, for yourself. Good luck, and I hope we'll see lots more of you around here! Telling us there's less of you!
