  1. We can learn to moderate ourselves with foods and portions. I don't suffer with food sensitivities so a small portion of a wide variety of foods doesn't mess with my overall health and well being. I've been maintaining an 80 lb weight loss since 2016. When your W30 is over, give yourself permission to create your own positive food management plan that you can live with for the rest of your life. There's really no such thing as the Finish Line when it comes to your quality of health. Finding long term stability with your relationship with food is where the rubber meets the road.
  2. Could be colic/ food allergy, ear aches.... any number of things. Agreed. Take her to the doctor.
  3. Throw it in the trash. "When she first started making kombucha, someone told her that they were good for septic systems so she was flushing her old mushrooms down the toilet. A couple years later the septic tank guy came to empty out her tank, and he opened it up to stick the hose in to start draining it, but he couldn’t. He was totally baffled and had to get out his knife and hack away at the large, tannish, leathery thing that was floating at the top of the tank! She was quite sure what it was and she was quite sure she was not about to tell him! Can
  4. I'm with Shannon. Ghee isn't my cuppa tea, either. I make my own clarifed butter with KerryGold.
  5. You can think of orange juice, grape juice as something used to bring a person out of diabetic shock. The juice sugar shot is a jolt to the bloodstream.
  6. Thanks for bumping this thread. It's a good one. "You probably don't want to have a shot of whiskey at breakfast, a glass of scotch at lunch, and a glass of wine with dinner unless your lifestyle is friendly to drinking all day." Hi-larious. I do miss these kind of briefers. Short and straight to the heart of the matter. Check out the Booze Edition, too. Written by Melissa.
  7. Thanks for sharing. Making health a priority is a wonderful NSV.

  11. I'm receiving the same error message for well over a week now. I've tried everything, too.
  12. Maw let me drink a "Choco" milk bottle until I was 4. The kids would tease me. I used to roll it up in my dress...start at the bottom hem and roll that bottle up and put in my mouth. What a baby. A lorra lorra dentist visits. Starting at the age of 5. Choco milk. No wonder I'm still's taken all my adult life to recover from childhood.
  13. It ruins baby teeth, falling asleep with the bottle. Ayup. Lactose.
  14. Morning is here. We're going to dance and have a good time.
  15. Yes, absolutely. You'll have it down to a fine art in no time.
  16. I would go to Norway and Finland. Fish, fish, fish would be on the menu everyday. Fish helps you recover quickly after exercise and long days of fishing.
  17. Create that plan and work that plan. CowboyUP because she's gonna buck! It will be the rodeo ride of your life but you'll get a big buckle at the end. You'll be the champion bareback rider. Keep your hand in the rein and find your rhythm. Hang on with everything that you have. Come back for rodeo cowboy tips and how to keep yourself encouraged.
  18. I would never use candy or sugar sugar to counterbalance blood sugar. I'm glad you're visiting with your doctor as no one can really advise you here without their medical license. I was T2 and have completely moved out of it. It did take 15 months and a bunch of sugar avoidance. I didn't off-road with refined sugars, sugarless gum or diet sodas, artificial sweetners. I read every post I could find here written by Dallas, Melissa and Tom. With their help....I followed the Whole 30 Yellow Brick Road to overall health and well being. They weren't offering me any medical adv
  19. Work with your doctor. TMI? Not for me. I live for the small details.
  20. I no longer have to take any medication. It took many, many months of being consistent. I'm happy for you, too.
