Well, I didn't realize I hadn't been here since Wednesday, but I'm not surprised. I was given some test results and found out I am allergic to gluten, dairy and eggs. It's quite a transition for someone who's favorite comfort food was a fried egg and cheddar cheese sandwich on an english muffin. Well, they say you're attracted to your allergens! ;-)
I was expecting the gluten and the dairy, but not the eggs, which apparently is the most severe of the three.
So far, I'm not phased by any of this. If this allows me to heal my immune system and start dropping pounds, all of this is surmountable. It also shows me how far I've come (even without the cooperation of the scale) because I think I avoided these tests for some time thinking I could never give up bread, pizza, cheese, etc. There's a possibility that dairy could be added in at some point, but I'm not counting on that.
Even after a couple of days, I'm sensing some changes. It would be great is this were a solution to several things I've been struggling with for so long. Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith.
Happy Sunday, Everyone - off to keep working on changing things over in the kitchen!
