To celebrate my birthday, I gave myself a little over a day off from most of my dietary restrictions.  I didn't go entirely off the wagon.  For example, there was no eating Nutella with a spoon but I did eat a whole lot of sushi, some cake, a few french fries and possibly a brownie sundae.  Just for shits and giggles, I decided to weigh myself this morning to see what the damage was.  My weight was up five and a half pounds!  I'm back on program today as planned and remembering why I don't eat a lot of that stuff on a regular basis.  It is good to remind myself how I used to feel all the time and why I made changes.  Meanwhile, my hands are stiff and my pants are tight.  Hopefully, the puffiness will go down in a day or two.

  1. Well, I called the store on September 3, thinking it was your birthday. Then when the actual day comes, I'm out of town and away from a computer and can't send wishes. Happy belated birthday! I hope you had fun.

    As for the weight gain, gaining that much in a day is a definite sign that your body reacts strongly to certain foods. This must be water weight, no? Anyway, you sound like you and your Dr. have made progress on how your body reacts to food, and I hope that you can continue to lose weight. Love, Letitia
