Hey!! Thanks for reading and for the comment! I think in some ways you are right, she wasn't intending to jab, and since she is pretty flaky herself she was most likely attempting to sympathize with me?

While I do have a hard time sticking to diets, I have done very well with exercise, running, walking, biking, swimming, I am quite active and have been for the last few years. I even completed a half marathon in January, training in the freezing cold conditions, so I don't feel like I really have a hard time sticking to things once I commit to something.

The knee jerk reaction might have been a bit too drastic though, I agree, I was hurt but when I really sit back and think about it she probably didn't mean it the way I read it. Texts suck for reading emotion sometimes!

Anyways just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to read and comment and talking me down off my "ledge" haha

I am doing well, sorry. Got back from wedding and honeymoon and still trying to settle one hundred percent.
Weight is only up 7 pounds after three weeks of massive eating and not caring. Just left the doc and I am in perfect health.

Update me

Hi SPICEMWE,
I saw on one of your posts that you have Alpha-Gal. My brother has had it for a few years now. He has a pretty severe case, but we don't really know anyone else with this disease. How severe is your case and how long have you had it? Looking forward to hearing from you.

God bless
