A new kick start

Yesterday was my birthday and we ate at Maggiano's. I had the tilapia and crispy red potatoes. YUM! I didn't completely finish the monster piece of cake, but ate a good bit of it! :-)

I'm in Texas visiting my hubby this week and going to see Lady Gaga tonight with my daughter. (It's my birthday present from her!) When I get back, I'm doing a 9 day cleanse with Isogenix and getting back on track.

Last month had what appeared to be a gallbladder attack. Ultrasound showed no stones, thank GOD! But reading about the gallbladder, seems that food allergies can trigger problems, so need to start focusing better on avoiding gluten, dairy and corn.

SO, I want to get back into the habit of checking with HYC!

Welcome back! Also, high fat content can cause gallbladder pain, too. So try and eat as low fat as possible. :)

Great to have you back! I was gone for most of 2010, myself! ;)

Thank you for the encouraging comment...I checked in this morning at a pound less. It's wonderful what a good nights sleep will do for you. I'll be checking back in with your blog as well. :)

I do pretty well with the fat intake, Sunny. I mostly just get the healthy mono-unsaturated fats via nuts, olive oil, dark chocolate, etc. But I have done some emotional eating lately with hubby in Texas and me still in Colorado!

Happy birthday and welcome back! I am so glad the ultrasound didn't show gallstone issues, but you're right that food allergies can be triggering and are better to be avoided (I am sensitive to things like wheat and eggs and have to watch it, or I feel icky, too!).

Lady Gaga should be a blast, have fun visiting everyone :)

I'm speculating that I'm having a gluten sensitivity myself. I'm going gluten free April 1st for 6wks to see if I see a change!
