    Hello from Washington!  
    The same thing happened to me yesterday, I had a recipe I’d tweaked to make compliant, garlic mushroom chicken thighs, my shrooms were slimy and disgusting. Luckily I had a zucchini in my garden so I subbed it. Completed with a green salad with dump ranch, dinner was served. The Hubs loved it!

    Sugar is in everything it seems. I carry a magnifying glass in my bag for reading ingredient labels, lol!

    I was pretty much over dairy before I started this ride, and the only thing I’ve reintroduce so far has been a little dab of butter. I would like to try cheese as I do appericiate a bite of cheese and salami. I’m more interested in the sulfites in the prepared meats, and wine of course is seeming to be a problem.

    I drank wine on Saturday and it was delicious, however I’m not sure it was worth the pain I woke up in and am still having 3 days later. 
    Everything else is going well, so it’s either sulfites or just generally alcohol, either way in back to 100% compliant too.

    My intro is going really well, with the exception of being down with this stupid cold. I’ve tried butter and a piece of cheese, so good. I had a couple corn chips in Super Bowl all good. Then I drank wine, omg not sure if it’s the sulfites or alcohol in general but I woke up in serious pain, shoulder, hip, foot, the entire right side of my body. Now I’m terrified as we are taking a 2 week road trip with our good friends to Vegas abs Mexico and it’ll there will be daily drinking.  I’m pretty sure I can fake it with iced tea and club soda most of the, but I’m gonna want margaritas in Mexico.  I plan to remain compliant, for the most part, until we leave so I should be feeling good when we start out. Then when we get home, another round starting March 5th. 
    The experiment continues. 
    Glad I found this thread, hope your all doing well with your re-intro.

    Is anyone doing another round?  I’m planning to start another on March 5 after we get back from a 14 day road trip to Mexico.  Wondering which forum topic to follow?
    I met my goal weight loss of 8 pounds, which seem to be an average, and that coupled with a bunch of NSV makes me even more determined to do another. My sugar dragon’s name is alcohol and while I’m not thinking I am an alcoholic I do feel like my body is telling me it’s an inflamitory and needs more work training it. 
    Thanks for all the support this forum has given to everyone, it’s been a lot of fun and I’ve learned so much. Hope to catch up with one or all as I journey.

    Happy day 10 everyone!  I really love reading everyone's posts.  All the recipes, ideas and motivation are really helpful.  My biggest "craving" has been to step on a scale!!  This is really strange as typically I only step on a scale about once a month... Anyway, I hadn't put the scale away since I really don't use it, but I had to yesterday because everytime I walked by it I was so tempted to step on it.  Also, I'm curious if there are any other women over 50 out there.  I'm asking because one of the things I was hoping to see a difference in is my sleeping.  I don't know if I am still waking up at night just because of my age or if I need to wait a bit longer to see an improvement in that area.  I do think the quality of my sleep is better but I hate waking up at 3 am every night

    Found buried in the freezer over the weekend, a huge whole salmon!  The Hubs baked it last night with just a little ghee, lemon and salt free seasoning, yumm-o!  Then he tagged me on FB in the salmon patties with tarter sauce, dinner is served!
