You rang?

Tried to pm you, but I couldn't. (I think you have to make 25 posts before they turn it on.)

Come over to my journal and we can have a chat about it. Lots of family members on this board.

Hi Priscilla,

You and your GF are doing great!

To get to Emily's Journal, click on the little Journal icon at the bottom of her reply.

I've been a happy fat dyke for many years - until illness made carrying around extra poundage harder. I've been doing LC for over five months and really enjoy it ... my blood sugar is in control, I've lost some weight (regardless of needing steroids occasionally) and I feel much better. My girl is doing even better, so it's a happy household.

Keep me in mind if you start an 'official' thread!

Hi prmichel,

My doctor suggested I get tested for over 100 foods. The idea is that we are senstive to certain foods and if we eliminate them for a few months and then rotate individual foods into our diets slowly it will make our bodies metabolize better. He took about 4 small vials of blood and within 3 weeks I got a whole booklet of what I was sensitive to and what I wasn't.

For example, I found out I am extremely sensitive to chicken (which I used to eat everyday!) - since eliminating it I don't have the gaseous occasions I used to blame on carbs!

I was on atkins for a long time and lost so slowly that I thought I was in constant stall. After the change in diet (I had to eliminate both chicken and pork products, but was able to add more beef and dairy), I have lost pretty steadily!

It worked for me. But I would read up on it before going to your doctor since they may not know anything about it. It's about a $350 test but can be covered by your insurance. Here's the website www.alcat.com.

Michele

There are quite a few gay folks on this forum, but for some reason we seem to hang out in one another's journals.

Not gay myself, but at least 1/4th of the folks in my "subscribed threads" are....so clearly there are more of you around. I don't feel comfortable giving out names. Maybe they will find /you, I hope. Not sure it makes a difference, eating wise.... Listen to Emily, she will tell you what's up.

I'm attracted to lesbians because in my experience they have a great sense of humour and are more articulate than the average bear. Having worked in the mental health field, I know a lot of them.

There of a lot of us "straight folk" around who are happy to listen and be interested in what you have to say, regardless of orientation.

I am having trouble with your posted height in your profile, though.

All best,

Kay
