You may have read my whining about my stomach issues.
I had tests done.
I went to the hospital.
I got good drugs.
I had more tests.
I took medicine.
I had allergy testing done.
I lived for weeks on a liquid diet.
I got no answers.
I had no relief.
But I had a niggling thought as to what it might be. No, oh no, it couldn’t be that. I would never be able to give that up. That couldn’t be what it would take for me to feel better. The thought continued to bug me. I continued to tell it to shut it.
Back and forth. Over and over.
I finally couldn’t deny the possibility…
Processed sugar appears to be my enemy. You know, yummy sweets. Candy. Cake. Cookies. Many beloved foods.
Now I know there are other contributing factors. My medications, abdominal migraines. Those are a bit out of my control. But this one–as hard as it might be, I have to at least try.
Last night was a bad night with my stomach…I had eaten a pop tart and a kids mini twizzlers pack. I paid the price. It was not pretty.
My motivation today has been pretty solid. I have not strayed. Right now, I am eating baby carrots while one of my girls has a yummy pop tart. The smell might be about to make me crazy, but the stomach issues feel like they are going to kill me, so…here goes!Survive til you Thrive!
