The Silver Lining

The silver lining in all of our allergy adventures this past week is that apparently eating dairy-free, wheat-free, egg-free, gluten-free and soy-free is REALLY good for the waistline.

2.8lbs GOOD. Finally back to my pre-vacation weight GOOD *actually, a little lower. Lower than I’ve ever weighed for the MayDay weight loss challenge GOOD. 172.2 lbs good.

I have to say, that eating fewer carbs and less cheese (referred to last week in general terms as “less crap”) has been a really good thing for me.

As for MAM, she’s still plugging along, being a trooper. She loves her new lunchbox that she gets to take to daycare every day (since she can’t eat food service food anymore), loves to take her “milk” out of the fridge and open the flip top, LOVES the corn-pop cereal she’s taken to (replacing Cheerios), and hasn’t had to blow her nose in something like three days.

It’s a beautiful thing.

  1. Hooray for both you and MAM! I am glad that she is adjusting to her new diet and you go girl for losing this week. Keep up the great work!

  2. I’m sure you checked it all out, but Kellogg’s Corn Pops (all Kellogg’s cereals have barley malt) are not gluten free. You’ll have to fill me in on the brand you’ve found. My kids eat Trix, Fruity Pebbles and Envirokidz cereals.

    I’m glad it is going well so far! Isn’t it nice when you finally have a healthy kid?
