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
