Minus 17 pounds since I started the diet, 29 since I started exercise rehab/ physical therapy. Eggs don’t seem to be going well. It may have something to do with the fact that I ate a zillion of them the week after Easter! Oye!! Tiny itchy bumps came back and persist, although I haven’t had eggs in 2 days. Major flare 2 nights ago. Bad storm moved through. My whole body got cold and sore. By morning, I couldn’t stand up from the couch, where I had slept due to not wanting to get more cold by getting out from under the covers to go to bed. Sheeesh! It was short lived. 1 Advil, 2 fish oil, 1 vitamin d and by afternoon, I only had mild pain in 1 hip and knee. Today, all is pretty normal, although my hips hurt last night in bed.
My worst cheat thus far has been a marshmallow…. a marshmallow
