Things are going well! Despite a few avoids, I'm still losing weight. Despite a setback with my back, I'm still feeling good. I seem to be doing well with taking less thyroid hormone as well. I haven't weighed on a really accurate scale for a few weeks, but from what I can figure, I've lost at least 30 pounds since January. (I won't add what I lost before January, and after baby, since that wasn't entirely BTD, it was mostly just what naturally falls away after having a baby.)
For breakfast today we were out of eggs, but I had some organic turkey sausage in the freezer, so I had that and some fresh blueberries to neutralize the polyamines, and some almonds for crunch. Good breakfast!
Thanks to all who have written in with their comments and encouragement.
As far as avoids go, I'm fortunate in my weight-loss efforts that those avoids that I react most to are the same avoids that hinder my weight loss the most. Makes them easier to avoid: wheat and corn are the biggies of course, with potatoes and dairy coming in close behind. This is the first effort I've made to totally avoid dairy, and when I mess up on that, I learn something every time. I'm starting to think I may even be lactose intolerant, which is something I never thought could be the case (I come from a family of Bs, and grew up on milk). I guess you don't know what a food does to you until you try to stop eating it. I remember coming home from school most every day, drinking a big glass of milk, and taking a nap. I thought the milk was soothing, but maybe it was just sedating...
I'm looking forward to a walk, once it cools down tonight. It's above 100 degrees F today! If it doesn't cool down, I'll go the the indoor track (and step on their scales while I'm there).
