Re-intro is going... ok. Things I thought wouldn't give me any issues have, which has been sad. I'm terrified of dairy, and will be splitting this into two separate re-intro days (goat v. non-goat) just as a test.
Don't know what your specific issues with dairy are, but you could also try lactose vs. lactose free. I also found a set point to how much I could have of cultured dairy before it would trigger my congestion/sinus flair ups/sore throat. It's not a lot, but it allows me to not sweat too much if there is cheese in something while I'm out, and I know if it does trigger if I avoid all dairy for a couple of days it resets.
It is a really good, powerful feeling to be able to look at and understand the bigger picture if how food relates to your body and that you have some control over it, even if the process of finding it out isn't that much fun.Caoineag, Horsepoor, GoldenGrovw, so good to hear from you all!!
Caoineag - Way to go on maintaining your weight loss!! Sucks to hear about your injury, what kind of exercise are you focusing on? I've been slowly getting into a regular routine with my rebounder, I started just walking a few minutes at a time and now I can run on it for 45 min or so several times a day. I haven't made the leap to running outside, and I probably won't because it is so hard on my knees, but it has been an encouraging start.
Horsepoor - Have you decided when you will be getting your horse? I imagine once you start riding regularly again you'll get your definition back.
GoldenGrove - Awesome job on the weight loss and gaining control over the food cravings, that is the biggest challenge!Isn't it amazing how baselines you thought were set in stoned just seem to shift for the better?
I won't bore you all with an update since I kinda update as we go, but I will give 'yall an update on my hubby. He is getting there a little slower but still making progress. He is eating more carbs than I am, but he feels really crappy if he goes too low carb. He also has a much larger variety of temptations, because he found that too much of anything in excess doesn't agree with him and he doesn't react well to a lot of dairy, he has a lot of temptations (especially at work) that I don't have because I CAN'T do gluten.
For the most part though, I'm doing the cooking so we eat whole 30/paleo except when there is a special occasion. He isn't getting enough exercise and he's super stressed out at work so that is not helping, but he seems to be coping better and still making really good choices, his baseline has definitely shifted. We just got to get him RE or working from home like me so it is easier :)
