    ibruprofen, so I take Aleve and turmeric.

    Ooh :( Hope that doesn't happen to you too often, weck!! I rarely eat red meat, but I eat a LOT of tomatoes.

    I suddenly gained 8 pounds (WHAT the F???) so am back on the Phentermine. It's dehydrating and I didn't drink a lot of water yesterday.  I will today!!

      I wish I could use one of the rubs with capsasin (hot pepper) in them, but I may be allergic to that. I get symptoms if I accidentally eat some hot pepper.

      We gain and lose a lot of weight when we move the scale, it is one of those vintage balancing ones, and was great in the house with the level floors.  Partner is always overjoyed when he "loses" and upset if he "regains".  

      I'm pretty much over it, I really don't move that much up or down, and since food is mandatory, I want to enjoy it.  I am fighting genetics when I try to look different from my mom and grand mom and all my great aunties.  Except for anomalies, they all lived long and baked goodies well into their old age.  

      I was never the thin one!  (Except the time I had surgery and was on IV "food" for ten days!)  I looked sickly at low weight.

      •  My mother weighs 108. She weighed 105 (2+ / 0-)

        when she got married. She says that's one pound for each of us that she could never lose. She's disciplined herself her entire life. Her mother was small and thin, but her father was enormous at one point. His doctor told him that if he didn't lose weight, he'd die. Granddaddy took it off, was thin my whole life, and lived to 94 :)

        Daddy had a doctor's scale set to 212. (He was 6'3") He weighed himself every day. If the scale moved, he cut out butter and walked to work. He also had to stay fit for the Army. When I gained weight in college from drinking soda and eating desserts (neither of which I was allowed at home, except for the occasional ice cream, or the cookies we stole from Daddy's underwear drawer), he called me "Chubso" and "Lardass" the whole week that I was home. Made me so mad, I went back to school, completely changed my diet (I still don't drink soda and desserts are very rare), started working out 5 days a week, and maintained that weight until now.

        So as you can see, I have issues =( Being overweight is absolutely not an option and must be dealt with swiftly and harshly. Bleah.
