I'm done with the cleanse now.  On the one hand, I'm pretty irked that I haven't lost anymore weight in the last two weeks.  On the other, I'm just glad that the 5.5 pounds I gained from celebrating my birthday has come back off.  I met with the nurse practitioner yesterday and we're changing my diet back to pretty much what it was before (protien, fruits and vegetables).  I got my first look at the allergy testing and I'm ragingly allergic to all dairy and, oddly, soy.  I'm moderately allergic to kidney beans, cherries (sad face), cilantro (seriously?) and safflower oil.  I have low reactions to a whole laundry list of things including a lot of meats and all gluten bearing grains.  The nurse said that I can eat the low reaction foods.  I just have to not eat them daily.  I'm leary of the grains, though.  I showed up as mildly allergic to them even though I haven't been eating them for months.  Also, the whole I ate a piece of birthday cake and gained five pounds thing is probably a strong indicator that I shouldn't eat wheat.
I'm going to spend some time rethinking my diet and trying to work out how I can cut down on the low reaction foods, many of which I eat daily.  I'm also going to start ramping up my biking again.  Stef and I are riding the Hub on Wheels 50 mile route on Sunday and really looking forward to it!


  1. Look at that weight are incredible. Have a great ride on Sunday. Weather should be cool and good.

  2. Thanks for your support. Losing weight is a long hard road. I found myself waiting for it to get easier and I just have to resign myself to the fact that this is how it's going to be the whole way.

  3. Whoa, how your life is going to change knowing what you're allergic to. You're going to alternately feel better (physically) and worse (mentally, whenever you think about what you can't eat). But you're a champ, Lucy, and I have no doubt you will face this stumbling block head on and come out better for it!
