After some phone wrangling, I have an appointment with Dr. Gastro - ah, my team grows. The receptionist was charming and kind (ew, you poor thing) but the earliest she could get me in is October 16th. Such is life with specialists.
With this 'moist' diet, one would think the weight would just be falling off. I thought it might be the silver lining. But alas, sucking down smoothies and puddings does not a smaller body make. Those calories just slide on down and leave me hungry.
I'm cutting coffee, alcohol and spicy, real food and all I get is bigger. I am waiting for my sense of humor to kick in. Right. About. Now.
So, I am scanning the globe, searching for lowfat, egg-free, not-too-spicy recipes that my family will like too. And when I am done, I will find a solution to the missing sock dilemma, plaguing families across the country.
I'm on a mission.
