Last week, my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I was pretty upset even though we fully expected the diagnosis. After dinner that night, I pulled out a piece of dairy cheesecake and ate it. It was comfort food, and this daddy’s girl needed some comfort.
If you follow my blog, forum or website, you know at one time I was severely allergic to dairy. In fact, once I quit reacting to dairy, I totally lost my taste for it. Yes, it does taste good, but I don’t crave it anymore. I could take it or leave it. The problem was that I didn’t leave it last week. I suffered no (I’ll spare you the awful details) symptoms of my former intolerance. Only one tiny thing happened. I went from a size 6 to a 10/12 overnight. The next morning, I couldn’t get one thing I owned over my hips or around my bust despite not feeling bloated. That led to a good cry and me swearing off all dairy in all forms for a very long time.
I’m fine with that.
