I think it's great that you feel healthy & I bet you look it too. Keeping running as a joy sounds like an excellent plan
Same Always good to see you're here though.I am having trouble keeping up with my diary for some reason, so just trying to at least stay in touch with you all in your diaries
It helps me to keep on track just reading yours.
Focusing on the joy of definitely sounds like the more important thing. You're doing so well on the running!Truthfully, I am feeling a little intimidated by what my next runs are supposed to be.
I think that's a very reasonable decision. We don't have to be at the lower end of the healthy range in order to be healthy or worthy.I suppose I would never get to "ideal" fat levels while I continue to enjoy the treats so I am coming more and more to terms with being at an "acceptable" level and enjoying my treats.
You know, they are not supposed to be anything, except what you want them to be. Running for the joy of running sounds like a wonderful idea to me.I am feeling a little intimidated by what my next runs are supposed to be.
I'm really sorry to hear that Marsia. That's really hard.My mom passed away around Halloween last year, so this Halloween was sad for me.
I wont do any official testing. My hope is to narrow down food sensitivities through elimination. So far I don't think elimnating gluten has made any difference, so I figure I'm either fine with gluten, or I'm sensitive to lots of things (more what I suspect) and so eliminating gluten alone just doesn't make enough difference.I forget, do you get tested for food allergies soon? I hope you can figure out what is causing the excema soon.
Slowly crossing off things from my to-do list.
Hmmm.Liza's new list-
Be kind to myself,
Don't put pressure on myself,
Do away with to-do lists & where I should be by now lists & then repeat this list......-
Be kind to myself

I'm trying to convince myself to eliminate dairy next. And do the next 6 weeks both gluten and dairy free....just don't know if I can make myself do it. The excema alone should motivate me.
Lol cate--truthfully i sort of missed that part of my new list! I did take to heart the other parts of being kind to myslef and not putting pressure on myself though!Do away with to-do lists
Yes--it's already gotten much better just getting those things sorted. Also bought my favorite hand cream for the eczema so that is helping too.Feeling better and calmer alone could make a difference for your eczema. I know it does for me.
Oh wow--good to know Tru--I didn't know that about xanthum gum! I'm pretty sure I have that in some things I'm eating...for example todays slip-up was a product with xanthan gum in it (I trusted my husband ability to read labels), which is made from glucose which can come from wheat, needless to say, I am very itchy right now.
Well that would be nice! So far no changes in weight or body fat with just gluten gone. I'm pretty good at finding good fatty replacements for anything that gets eliminated haha.With both wheat and dairy gone, I wonder if you'll automatically lose a little weight?
I don't actually drink milk so that won't be a concern. My hardest thing to replace will be yogurt and cheese. I can get vegan forms of both of course but don't think I will like them the same. So I will probably aim to replace the cheese with more nut butters, and either skip the yogurt or see if there might be a vegan one that I like.Oat milk would be my preference too, but I would make my own I think.
