Still feeling terrific (minus getting my period) Boy did that ever hit hard today. It dawned on me that I've been doped up for the past 3 years on an anti-inflammatories...I guess they've made my periods a lot better. Oh well, a day or two of feeling crappy is worlds better than being drugged up!!
I'm still keeping it simple with my eating. Really trying to do this properly although I would love to dive into a large cheese pizza.
My safe food list is sweet potato (I actually am so sick of these that I may never eat one again) carrots, peaches, chicken, celery, nuts, and I blended a few berries yesterday so I think they're ok too. I must say that I'm doing well- feeling satisfied and while I tease about craving a pizza, I truly am ok. Way better than I thought I would be. See, I love food. Good food, bad food, fast food, mom's home cooking. Lots of food. I thought this would have been harder for me but I'm doing just fine. I have a bbq Sat to go to and I'm sure there'll be lots of treats so that will be a good test. I know I won't cheat myself though- I've come too far and I feel too damn good!!
My hands and feet feel awesome. I can actually lift a dumbell in the morning.
I'm getting lots of posts & comments from others with RA. I hope that if anyone out there reading gives the elimination diet a try they let me know!
