Don't Cut the Cheese!

Since I was a little girl, I have loved cheese. There was not a dish I could come up with that could not be made better by adding cheese. Cheese has been a staple in my diet my entire life. You can imagine my growing horror, then, when I realized that my body is beginning to tolerate it less.

Weight Loss and Body Image

I woke this morning thinking about how swollen I feel. It has been particularly hot and humid here in Southwest Florida for the past month.

I spend all of my time in air conditioning and drinking copious amounts of fluids just stay hydrated. I have also been quite busy at my office, so I have been running around the corner to the local Chinese restaurant for lunch.

In and of itself, that would not be a problem, except that I am a creature of habit and not as adventuresome in my diet as I am in life. So, the result is that I have been eating shrimp fried rice and crab rangoon for about a week and a half now. I know better. I know my body appreciates a low carb diet. I know I should plan. I did it anyway. (See also: Don't Cut the Cheese!)

With some trepidation, I stepped on the scale this morning, and confirmed my concern. I have gained about 5 lbs. I know that it is time to start paying attention to my diet again. Not only have I gained weight, but I just feel bloated. 

What is so funn…
