EDS, post 30 can your body bounce back?
I know your metabolism takes a slight hit at 30, larger hit at 35 and every 5 years or so keeps shrinking. I’m still heavier than I was pre-kids and reality is hitting me. I knew I no longer had my pre-baby body, but will I be able to go back? I accepted the fact…
Well, we have the diagnosis for our 2 year old- lactose intolerant
She said we are doing all the right things and told us about the lactose chart and that lactaid milk does still have a lactose content. I just wish she reacted like I do so we wouldn’t have to worry so much but she also told us the hard part was already done. Now, we…

Dairy free, gluten free, lactose free… oh my
So, my 2 year old daughter and I ate out for my birthday with the rest of the family (My parents, husband and 6 year old). We had one of the best waitresses I’ve had- to the point I thanked her. She made sure the croutons were on the side so I could eat salad,…
Day 2 of the Pop Fast
Day 2 on the pop/energy drink fast was even easier than I thought it would be. Now, on day 3, I’m adding in junk food. I went grocery shopping today and conveniently left out buying any junk food I can eat. (no gluten free cookies, cakes or anything) I did load up on fruit- that…
Well, we retested my daughter and she got diarrhea with the red rash after I made gf pancakes from a mix and used regular milk
It has to be milk. It’s been too long to be a 10 day virus. I’m just glad we already have good alternatives for the yogurt, butter and milk she will eat. We just need to find cheese. I’m thinking about just no longer buying anything dairy so she won’t be tempted and won’t have…
We took my 2 year old to the ER a few weeks ago.
We were told to keep her away from dairy and her diarrhea (reason we took her) was likely caused by a virus. Well, we took her off dairy and her diarrhea cleared up. We reintroduced it many times and the very last time my mom attempted to give her cows milk, she spit it out…
I never thought I’d be the type to let myself go after a marriage and these past 2 years (last year and this year) I’m getting myself back.
I have been with my husband almost 8 years now. Before he and I met, when I was younger, it would take me over an hour just to leave my house. My hair, make up, clothes and everything had to be perfect. After we had our first baby, I had an extra 60lbs (went from…
Day 2 gluten free
I cut gluten out of my diet again. This time, I’m better educated than the first time (I’ve done 3 elimination diets over the years- all three times for different amounts of time and all 3 times I had benefits that were noticeable). This time, I’m doing it after being suggested by multiple professionals and…
