Except weight! I mean, wait!
I can’t weigh in because I had my husband hide the scale! I really did and he gladly did so…
Because it’s not just about the weight.
Have you ever been having a conversation with someone when—all of a sudden and out of the blue—something they say ignites a spark in you? This happened to me last fall, when I was chaperoning a dance at my sons’ school and was chatting with a friend and fellow parent, Jenn.
She told me that she’d stopped eating dairy and wheat, having tested positive for allergies. “Eggs!” she exclaimed, shaking her head with a laugh. “I have been eating SO many eggs!”
I thought at the time, “I can’t imagine.” And I couldn’t…at that time.
Yet here I am, allergic to neither wheat nor to dairy, giving up both (and sugar!) (and grains!) for 30—30!—days in a row.
And you know what?
I feel good.
Fair enough. It was a close third.)
