First, an announcement: The Benefit Concert for Japan is this Saturday night at 7* pm. If you’re in the greater Seattle area, please consider supporting this worthy cause. You can get tickets here.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled babblings.

Yeah, I know, there’s no weight up there this week. I have a good reason, though: I’ve decided to stop weighing myself for the time being. It serves no purpose other than to taunt me right now. I’m going to concentrate on eating healthier things, meaning things that don’t make me feel physically sick by irritating my digestive track, and exercising regularly. I hope that those two things will help me fit into smaller pants, or at least not require bigger ones, but that’s really just a side effect at this point. I need to do it to help me feel better. Period.

I also need it to fit into my current life, rather than trying to shoehorn my current life into a diet plan. Which is part of the reason I’m putting the GFCF diet on hold for the moment. I just can’t deal with it right now and that’s going to have to be good enough. We’re taking BamBam to a developmental pediatrician this week. I plan to talk to him, as well as our regular pediatrician, about the lab tests and the diet. Until then, and maybe for a while after, it’s on hold.

That’s all I can manage today, so I’ll leave you with a card I found last week that spoke to me:
