Well, I'd like to point out something that I'm sure will make my mother and boyfriend very happy....I PUT ON WEIGHT! Ok ok....it was just 2-3 lbs but those 2-3 lbs have stayed put for about a week now! This is pretty unusual for me.

So, here's the curious part......this happened when I decided to go dairy free over the course of 16 days! I would say my "normal" weight is between 105.0 and 106.5. This is pretty much the case everytime I jump on a scale. However I was 108.0 today and I was even up to 108.5 about 3 days ago? Now just to squash any "concerns" that I might be "concerned" about this I want everyone to know that I do NOT think a body mass index of sub 17 is the best look for me.....So please....no ED comments because anyone who has actually read any of my blog knows how much I love to eat!

I have resumed my dairy consumption due to absolute boredom with my diet recently ( not because of the 2-3 lbs ). It will be interesting to see if my weight will drop back to normal levels again? I did notice during my Dairy Free Challenge that I WAS compensating for my lack of cheese with foods like nuts and peanut butter and I really have no idea if this was the cause of a very minor ( but stable ) gain.

So with that said, like I've always believed.....if you REALLY want something, just eat it ( but in moderation of course ! ) In my case, this usually refers to cheese. Using this theory has kept my weight very consistent for many years now. But, above all I'm happy I tried this experiment for I found out that goat's milk does NOT seem to bother my stomach like I once thought. However, I will say that this DOES NOT seem to be the case with Cow's milk ( as I expected ). I had about 1 Tb of cream cheese today and guess what..... gassy bloated tummy! So, at least now I really know.....xo xo
