CollyMP's Journal, 26 April 2013

OK. I'm convinced. Laying off the bread. I had a sub sandwich yesterday. Then I had a couple of chunks of baguette. I got progressively more gloomy as the day went on, more irritable, more snappish, and then I ate after 9pm, like I haven't done for weeks, and ate WAY over my calories, also like I haven't done...ever. I have gone over by less than 50 calories before, this was like 800. Ate half a bag of pecans.

Oh the agonies of my digestive system today!

So yeah, getting back on the horse today, laying off the bread, going back to no food after 8pm.

Hey we fall down, but we get up. We all have days like that, when we want to eat everything we see, but we dust ourselves off and climb back on the horse. You'll be fine. Good luck not eating bread. It's really difficult, but I know you can do it.

Thanks Lisa-that's right, we all fall down, and have to get back up and decide whether to let one slip up spoil the whole thing or not. I vote NOT.

It is weird isn't it? Leaves me wondering all the time if it's truly physical or just mental. Am I feeling crappy after bread because I physically feel it or is it mental because we've agreed wheat is not good? I guess you'll know when you eat gluten free bread. Did you ever find the stuff?

Sounds delightful and you enjoyed every bite. Now you know why you've been doing what you've been doing and it's the right thing to get back on the path you know will be a positive. Jump up and move forward! Lesson learned. Delicious lesson, but a well learned one. HUGS

Not all of it, but I have enough to get started with a plain regular "white" loaf. That's a great place to start in any case. I'm pretty sure that it was the bread, or possibly the pecans, because things are moving through my system at an extremely accelerated pace, if you know what I mean! It isn't the runs any more, it's the sprints.

LOL-yeah, it was delicious, I do love a subway sandwich, because someone else slices up the tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, pickles, olives, etc. Making one at home takes forever, they're set up so that it takes a few seconds. My mental state today is much more positive, and that I cannot explain with any certainty one way or another.

The nuts are usually the culprit on the acceleration. Positive is positive and it doesn't need to be explained or understood, just enjoyed!

I love Subway too - I could pick out that green & yellow sign from miles away and practically LIVED on subway when I traveled. But I do believe that bread had a destructive effect on my blood sugar. I think it's insane that I will crave 'that bread' before I'll crave chocolate.

LOL-I don't think it's insane at all, bread is one of my Big 3 on the cravings list, right after crackers and cheese. Chocolate is way down the list.

Missy-that is SO true! Those of us that have had treatment for depression tend to try to analyze happiness, quantify it, explain it, etc., when really, one needs to simply ENJOY it. Drinkin' lots of water today to flush the system (though it seems to be flushing just fine all on it's own-I'm afraid to put on actual pants at this point, I'm still in jammies cuz they're easier to pull down quickly! EEP!)

I love my anti-depressants and I've stopped trying to figure out my highs and lows. I know I have issues and I just enjoy the good and work through the bad as best I can. Jammies are definitely easier for the 'ups and downs' of the flow of your system flushing. LOL..

I have/had a love/hate relationship with anti-d's. The ramp up and ramp down side effects for me are nearly intolerable, and the effectiveness of any one medication stops working for me after a while so it becomes necessary to try different ones. I've just decided they're no longer an option that I choose, I'll try to get more exercise, get out of the house, eat better, pursue hobbies I enjoy, etc., instead of the pills. When they work, they're GREAT but they don't work consistently enough for me to go through all the effort.

Understand. I don't take mine every day because of the side effects. They work though and to me that's all that matters.. LOL.. I still have some highs and lows but everyone does. HUGS

And that's the goal right there, really-find something that works to alleviate the problem and DO it. This is really one of those things where medical science is really stabbing in the dark, it definitely is obvious that all humans are in fact somewhat different from one another.

I am so glad you noticed the difference. I don't eat much in the way of grains these days, and had hoped that I would feel the difference in my knees but unfortunately not they still hurt like heck so although I am sorry your gut has issues today I am glad that you have found for yourself that grains are to be avoided. Did you ever read the book "wheat belly' written by a doc - can't think of his name? I haven't read it but I read a lot of paleo blogs and they all say to avoid wheat. Good luck with the no wheat bread 'cause I think you are a baker.

Oh dear, just read your comment about being still in jammies cause they are easier to pull down - nearly snorted out my nose - sorry, that is too funny. And I didn't think of grains in relation to depression (fellow sufferer here) but I do know that carbs for me or rather carbage, had a terrible effect on my mood. Good carbs in veggies are okay but rice, bread, potatoes, candy, etc - call the paddy wagon and take me away!

Sarahsmum-no, I haven't gotten to read it yet, I'm something like #11 on the list at the library! Yes, I am a baker, as a matter of fact. LOL-love the term "carbage", isn't that the truth!
