On my way to losing a marathon!

Sick and tired and sick and tired and sick.

Today we celebrate my brother's birthday at my mom's house.  So I didn't eat the decadent, cheesy, saucy meatloaf my mom had made.  I also didn't eat her cheesy hash brown potatoes.  I didn't eat a single M&M that she had sitting out, a fact that made me proud as I would gladly replace most of my diet with M&Ms and be vastly happier person for having done so.  I didn't eat a single chip, and certainly didn't touch the delicious 7 layer bean dip she'd prepared.

Instead, I ate some salad, some green beans, and 2 1/2 small pillsbury crescent rolls.

Then, after lunch, maybe around 2 or 3 o'clock, I wiped my finger in the leftover bowl of homemade frosting sitting on the counter.  I didn't eat the cake or the ice cream, but I did lick between 1/2 and 1 teaspoon worth of frosting off my finger.

15 minutes later, the cramping started.

Currently it's almost 6 o'clock and I feel like absolute crap.  Is it because I ate the frosting?  Or was there too much butter on the green beans?  Is it because the dressing I ate on the salad was full-fat instead of fat free?  Despite my doctor's insistence that "carbs will be good for your stomach", were the rolls too much?  Or were they the wrong kind of bread??

I really can't say.  I can't answer any of these questions, and that's really my problem.  Every 2-3 days, I still have painful stomach cramps, and am still never quite sure why.  And when you don't know why, you don't know how to stop it from happening again tomorrow.

Although this time, my money is on the stupid frosting.

Hey somebody:  Go ahead and ask me how I've already lost so much weight since my son was born!  Little bit of diet.... little bit a exercise, and huge freaking helping of debilitating pain.  It'll skinny you right up.


  1. I'm not a doctor or nutritionist, but crescent rolls are highly processed and therefore have a lot of crap in them. I'm eager to find out what the doctor has to say. What happens when you eat eggs or yogurt?

  2. ...and did the doctor say anything about ulcers?

  3. I haven't had eggs, just because I don't tend to eat them much, and yogurt I've avoided because I'm avoiding lactose. I get that the crescent rolls may not have been the healthiest choice but based on the timing, I don't think they were the problem. Also, the next day I had more pain after eating a salad with light dressing. Haven't looked at ulcers, but I don't think that's it. I think ulcers hurt when you don't have food in you, because of all the extra acid, but I only hurt when I've eaten. And only sometimes. Also, I'm taking that antacid stuff, and it doesn't seem to help at all. Guess we'll see!
