So, first day of blogging. I feel like this is a bit of a public diary. Let me know if I go into oversharing :) I'm still putting together what I want to include here but I figured getting started was the way to go. Today's a great day. Started out with a 1.7 mile walk and making some amazing Stephanie-friendly bread! Those who know me know that going for a walk, especially one of that distance, has not been possible for quite some time. Lyme has made a huge impact on me. I think I maybe, might, possibly could have gone into remission! Don't want to celebrate too soon though.
This week is the first week on this food plan. Found out on Monday about all my food allergies and this food plan is drastically different from the one I was doing to lose weight. It feels odd and I must say that I am soooo scared that I am going to put weight back on. The allergist said that I might do that the first month but that after all the allergens are out of my system I will go back to losing weight so long as I follow the food plan and use portion control. Being a recovering bulemic (yes, I have no issue with sharing that rkind of personal information), this is quite scary. I spent a lot of time, energy and effort into losing 150lbs. I am literally half the woman I used to be and I really think I could stand to lose 10-15 more pounds to get comfortably in the healthy BMI range for someone my height. Being open about my fears, concerns (which I guess are the same thing), stumbles and all of the successes are going to be quite healing and healthy for me. Thank you for joining my journey here as I continue on my journey to health.
Have already made some amazing Stephanie-friendly food and I will share pictures and recipes ASAP. I get a lot of inspiration from pins on Pinterest and if I have a link to the recipe I've adapted I will give credit where credit is due. Honesty really is the best policy! Until next time, hugs & love! ~Stephanie
