First day of the rest of my life.

Saturday, May 16, 2020

Hello Spark ppl. I so want to get rid of these 60 extra pounds. I have given up sweets, which is major for me as I am a sugar addict. I am working on making better food choices, like limited white flour. I notice that when I do eat it (Like pizza last night) my eczema gets worse as does my athlete's foot. Sorry if this is TMI. I am 47 will be 48 next week and I want to be truly transparant as I have nothing to lose. I want to be honest with myself.
I was trying to do the "Zone Diet" and it has really good things to say but it is extremely hard only eating vegetables and fruit for carbs and limited bread like products. It makes me feel like I am in food jail and I have already given up sweets.
I would really like to see my Hashimotos go into remission or at least get more energy. I have to fight taking a nap almost every day.
I have done it all....Keto..for a year.
Paleo diet
Anti inflammatory diet.
The thing that is hard is most likely you are cutting food groups out and it is hard when the rest of your family is not eating that way. I have a 16 year old...boy. Need I say more?
Anyways...I am trying to reconnect with spark ppl and get to my goal...slow and steady.
Thanks for listening.

    It's hard when you have an autoimmune disease. I have found that I gave up on trying to follow any of the diets out there and just concentrate on getting more active and watching portion sizes of what I am eating, cutting back on sweets and cutting pop(soda) out of my diet has been huge

    It's extra challenging with an autoimmune disease. I always read that the best eating plan and best exercise plan is what you will stick with consistently.

    Keep on posting and keep trying until you find what works for you.

    I can relate. I have some sort of autoimmune disease that has attacked most of my organs. I went back on Keto yesterday. I went off of it when there was no food in the store last month. I've been in a lot of pain since...and so tired...
