A plea for help … and a promise to stop ignoring my Blog :)

*Discussion Time*

So this last month, as many of you know, I've been messing with my diet to try and figure out why my body won't let go of the last excess weight.  I researched and found some things to try: No dairy, No wheat/gluten/yeast of any kind and No sugars in ANY form, except a small amount of low-glycemic fruit and veggies.

Ouch.  It was a lot to adjust to.

As the month went one, I started to get more and more PISSY.  Yes, I just said pissy.  I was exercising every morning and I'd get that momentary high, but the fog of depression would start to slowly take over again.

Wednesday this week, it got so bad I literally sat on the couch and watched TV and ignored my kids.  I could feel it.  Real-live depression had set it.  It was getting too hard to fight.

And still I didn't make the connection with what I was eating, I figured it was the deployment depression finally setting in.

Yesterday, at the store, I finally decided I didn't care anymore about the stupid freaking diet.  I bought a big package of Peanut Butter M&M's.  I was ANGRY and depressed all morning.  When we got home from the store, I ate the ENTIRE bag of Peanut Butter M&M's.

Now normally when you eat like that … you start beating yourself up, right? Accusing yourself of being weak.

Not me.  I was in the BEST MOOD for the rest of the day.  Then the crash hit and I fell asleep for an hour, the kids destroyed the house, my son dumped almost an entire bag of pretzels on the floor then stomped on all of them.  I woke up to a disaster.  I DIDN'T care :) My husband emailed me to tell me that he will have to go on a training for 6 weeks about 8 weeks after he gets home.  Bummer.  But … OH WELL, I thought.

And that's when I realized … chemically I was okay again.  The only thing that changed was that freaking bag of peanut butter M&M's.  Huh.

I already know there is something wrong with my blood sugar because I get headaches if I don't eat something every three hours through the day. This just adds to the mystery of the blood sugar issue.  No sugars at all = depression.

So … the reason I am sharing all of this … I hope there is someone else out there who can benefit from my discovery.

And even more … I'm hoping someone out there knows what is wrong with me.  And they can tell me how to fix it :)

Here comes the plea … PLEASE share this with everyone you know, ask them if they know what to do …

In the meantime … I am adding all fruits, veggies and natural sugars in the form of Agave and Honey back into my diet, but staying dairy-free and gluten-free … just to be sure :)

I was in such a good mood this morning … I decided TurboFire was the perfect workout :) Boom Shakalaka!!! #pleasehelpme #bloodsugardiseases #shareit #smileyface
