So I’ve narrowed down the cause of my bloating. It’s one of two things….possibly two things…and I don’t like it. I don’t like it one bit.
I always thought it was bread (white bread) so I stopped eating that. But then I thought it could be starches in general but wasn’t sure as bread stopped ‘bloating me.’ However, after I eat pasta…specifically spaghetti, my favourite….my belly becomes the size of a beach ball and rock hard. It makes me not want to leave my house that is for sure.
So sadly, I may have to give up my spaghetti because this is unsightly and rather uncomfortable. Carli & I were hypothesizing a while back that it is a gluten allergy (mild or moderate, we are unsure) but I’m beginning to think so. I’ve been keeping a mental track and it’s not looking good. I would go crazy without eating my homemade spaghetti, but I’m going to fool around with the noodles and see if I can find something that works.
Note to self: Just never eat this food around strangers or before going out. I won’t look pregnant when I’m not at least. Also, need to get thyroid checked on again, it’s been too long.
Yes, I should make an appt. and maybe I will soon but really, until it became unbearable I wouldn’t stop eating this. LOL I’ll just sit back and complain about it and how much I hate it and can’t figure out what it is. lol
So what’s the point of this post. I have no idea. I just sat down and am taking a Wii break and I’m unhappy with this but it’s rather amusing as I look like I swallowed a beach ball whole.
On a more positive note, J & I have been walking almost every night. We have been walking to and from work and then going out after supper. So that’s a start. I get lots of exercise with the kids and am outside all of the time, but it’s not fast-paced enough to make a difference. I think I need to add more calories to my daily diet as well, I don’t think I’m eating enough calories so body is retaining everything (esp. the good crap I put into it). hehe
Well back at’r.
