Day 7 and 8 the plan

Day 7: I have company from out of town so I was unable to check in yesterday.  Day 7 Friday, was a good day...it was a rest day which means I ate only things I know I can eat and nothing new.  Even though rice wasn't new, I think with chicken it is a test, so I made brown rice to help fill the kiddos up and ended up eating it without thinking, but I passed! Yeah, the next day I was still down .4. I felt great!

Day 8 was my first bread testing day. I was a little nervous as I haven't eaten bread for over a month, but I had my 1 slice and all was well all night long, no bowel distress whatsoever.  I couldn't wait to see what my wait this morning and there it was...the same....ugh..well this is my first stall and I am pretty sure this means that I had some kind of reaction to bread, I am looking into it and will not keep eating it at this time.  But I feel good with no headache which is very exciting to me.
Today is a rest day so I will see you tomorrow.

Oh, by the way, I made the spicy coco sauce again Friday night and it was a little better than last time and I am in LOVE..whoa..so good...then I made more flax granola and dried it out more than usual and now I know why everyone loves it so much..it is the BOMB when you make it right. I will post some pics next time.

Love to you all, thanks to my Savior for helping on this overwhelming journey and love and hugs to my sweet Brave Boy in Heaven whom inspires me daily. Love you sweetie.

Total Loss: 7lbs

Observations: Just keeping an eye on this but I noticed I sleep deep and longer after chicken and awaken very early after beef. We will see if this trend continues.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
