So full!

It's weird how I am barely hungry anymore.  Yet I don't feel like I'm eating that much more, quite possibly even eating less than before.  I know my breakfast and dinner today was less than it used to be.  Breakfast was 2 fried eggs, some mushrooms, 2 pieces of sausage, milk, and a couple orange slices.  Used to add toast into that (but left out the mushrooms, LOL).  Was full on that until lunch - tuna salad on romaine lettuce, 4 pieces of cheese and water.  Was hungry for dinner because we had just done our crossfit workout.  But only ate 2 pieces of pizza, and these were small pieces!  I'm so full I won't get to enjoy one of my cupcakes tonight or have any ice cream.  A little disappointing, but it will be a great way to keep me off of the junk food and from overeating.  Tried a new recipe for pizza tonight...

Cheesy Pizza Crust - Wheat free, grain free crust
I didn't have any parchment paper so I used my large pyrex rectangle.  Still flipped it halfway through, then flipped it back before putting on the toppings.  Used jarred sauce, added mushrooms, sausage, and mozarella cheese. 
Both kids gobbled this up!  Carolyn ate 1 full piece, although she pulled the sausage off.  James happily ate her sausage and most of his piece.  So we will keep this as a possibility.  Still some other crust recipes others swear by that I'd like to try before we settle on one.  Would love to find one that I could make ahead and pull out of the freezer.  I don't think this one would hold up well to that.

Weighed myself on Saturday and didn't lose any weight.  But I ate a lot of junk last week - cupcakes and ice cream - so it's not that surprising, especially since I wasn't feel too.  We will see what things look like this Saturday.  Back to crossfit this week too, so got in a great workout yesterday and today.  New recipe again tomorrow for dinner!


  1. Hi! How are you doing? I came across your dizziness blog awhile ago and was hoping you'd update. I'm on month eleven of this dizziness "thing" and know several people who are, too....all postpartum moms. It's very tiring. Thought we could share some ideas and info.... Ps. I'm going gluten free too now!

  2. Not too much to update on the dizziness, I've kind of given up on feeling normal with that until I'm done nursing. My son will be 2 at the end of May, so in 3.5 months my body will get its first break in nearly 5 years. I'm hoping that then my hormones will normalize and I can finally lose weight and regain my normal way of life. But I'm also going to go see a new doctor I hope soon (see above post) and see if he has any new ideas.

  3. Here's a site I first came across way back when this all started.
    You may want to check it out, yourself. I've been in touch with several other women too, and it seems to be coming down to hormonal issues, anxiety and depression, vestibular migraine and thyroid, just figuring out which one it is is the bugger, and they are all so intricately linked it's hard knowing where one thing starts and another stops. I've been pretty sure mine is thyroid related since the beginning, only because I felt like my body just fell apart. You can read my story on that site I linked to (I'm Camirae), and it's since been "revealed" if you want to call it that, that my thyroid doc has kept me WOEFULLY under treated for years (I'm already hypothyroid and have been for twenty+ years). So....I'm working with a new doc who is checking adrenals and thyroid and is trying to get me back on track. Sigh. Like you, my body needs a rest. I've been pregnant or nursing straight the last 8 years....5 kids....very worn out! :)
