Not eating that long list of foods is proving very difficult. One week after cutting those items out of my diet and I am still getting hives daily. A few more days of this and I am going to go insane. Do you know how hard it is to find foods without any of these ingredients? I refuse to go to a health food store and spend millions when I don't even know what is causing the hives. So, for now, I eat salad with special dressing, rice, meat, cheese, fruits and vegetables. Other than rice chex (no rice crispies, they have soy or something I can't remember) and fruits and veggies, there is nothing I can just snack on. I can't go down and make popcorn or grab a handful of pretzels. No fruit snacks or candy. And lets be honest, how often do you eat a banana and realize you are now more hungry than before? So, for my daily snacks I usually have to make a meal and just not eat a lot of it. I eat salad or cheese or a Greek yogurt. I have two boxes of Hot Tamales staring me in the face each day from their location on top of the tv. Oh, how I want to eat them. But I am not having any problems keeping the lost weight off, since I can't eat anything.
Last night we had a RS meeting I was in charge of and we had chicken salad sandwiches on croissants. I really wanted one. Even just a spoonful of chicken salad would have been enough. But that darn mayonnaise in the salad ruined everything. Anyway, I am not usually a negative person but you know how people on a strict diet are usually moody? Well, take that times ten. Being on a forced strict diet is the worst thing ever. Anyway, that is enough negativity for one post. As soon as I realize this isn't worth it, I will be eating everything in sight. Starting with sweet pork nachos with tomatillo ranch dressing from Costa Vida.
