Wednesday Weigh-In 20150702

Here begins a new period of weight loss, thanks to my wife's diet. While I'm not on the diet myself, I avoid snacks so as not to make her feel like she's missing out.

My wife is thinking about starting the Nutrisystem diet. So she's in her pre-diet, bulk-up mode, trying to engorge on everything that she might not be allowed to eat, especially ice cream.

Due to a relentless series of doctor appointments for my wife, I've been missing a lot of work. So when I do work, I don't bother to take my half-hour walk breaks. I miss regular exercise.

Hot weather has moved into our region. With no air conditioning, we have altered our eating patterns. Well, altered our cooking patterns, really. For example, I've lost interest in broiling steaks, heating up a frozen pizza or baking turkey thighs. We're more likely to eat sushi, salads and cold cuts now.

The lure of dairy products is so great. Despite how much better I felt without them last week, I resumed eating them in moderation. But I stayed away from "sweetened condensed milk," which my wife uses to make "coffee treats." This thick white liquid is brilliantly sweet and thick and gooey like runny caramel. Once I have a little taste, I cannot stop myself from consuming it all immediately. But somehow I avoided it.

In the past few days, the pain from my hernia was worse than I'd ever felt before. It was my fault for not following my very own hernia mitigation guidelines, particularly the diet-related ones. The biggest culprit was my binge-consumption of dairy products, especially ice cream and condensed milk, which we use to make "coffee treats." Once a coffee treat is made, I drink it down in one breath. They're usually twelve ounces. So on Monday and Tuesday, I completely eliminated all dairy. The hernia no longer hurts, and my weight and waist are noticeably lower.

I'm not sure what to attribute this episode of bloating to. It seems like everything I eat or drink, including water, causes it to some degree. Hmmm, maybe it is the water.
