So what do you get when you eat a pizza, when the reason to avoid it is not simply weight loss ? A night of running to the bathroom every hour and a son who's talk box is locked in the on mode. Not good ! However it does serve to confirm that certain foods ARE indeed bad for our particular bodies, and as tired and burned out as I might feel, it could always be worse. Now in this pre dawn silence, I feel like I want to drink a gallon of water and never eat anything outside of the plant kingdom again. I am actually craving berries and salad.

It was an important step though. It served to remind me that no matter what the scale says, we are all better off for the way we live now than our old "easy" ways. Nothing worth having in life comes easy.

So true! I often think it would be great to just eat whatever, but when I realize how yucky I feel afterward, it's not so fun anymore :( I guess it's a great lesson for us in moderation, but overall our bodies like all the good stuff we're putting in it instead of the junk, no matter what that rotten scale says to us!

Have a great weekend :)

I am beginning to think that food intolerance may be the ultimate weight loss weapon. Going off program is sort of easy to decide to do, but if you know you will get sick as a result, it is a whole other thing.

Ad have a great time on your trip !

Wow, it is so cool how our bodies will tell us when we have taken a wrong turn. Hate you when thru it but it did get you back on track.

As for why is exercise important, I don't know that it really helps me with weight loss but I sure do feel better when I exercise.

Hope you and yours have a happy 4th.

I've had a few of those reminders in life too. Milk does NOT do this body good! Sorry you had to go through the yuck but glad it's put you back on track.
