I'm very happy to be down 1.6 pounds this week even though TOM was here most of the week and I drank lots of alcohol. I'm more than happy! I'm amazed!
I've been reading Robb Wolf's book The Paleo Solution and realized something very important.
My lip hasn't been red or swollen in TWO WEEKS!
Backstory. Two years ago THIS WEEK....I was stung by a bee on my foot while on vacation in Wisconsin. My lip immediately swelled up like I'd had an injection gone and wrong and was trying out for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
For 10 months...it continued to swell. Almost daily. I cut certain foods out of my diet but it never really did anything. In May 2010, I went to an allergist in Utah and had the full panel. The only thing that came up was that I had an unknown grass allergy but she said that wouldn't cause my lip to swell.
She sent me down to the lab where they took 6 viles of blood to test for systemic diseases. It came back clear. She was baffled.
Over the last year, it has gotten a little better....but would still swell several times a week.
Yesterday, I read a story in the book about a man whose tongue would swell and it disappeared when he started Paleo.
I'M CURED! This development alone....has made me so excited and hopeful that this is the solution I've been looking for all of these years!
Gluten is poison in my body.
