Yesterday, I reintroduced coffee. Plain, black, hot, decaf coffee with nothing added. It's what I used to drink every morning pre-AIP, and seemed fairly innocuous. So after a successful reintroduction of cocoa last week and seed spices last Thursday, I tried coffee yesterday.
I took a few sips. It didn't taste as good as I remembered. After a few more sips, I kind of got a stomach ache, so I stopped. I felt kind of queasy and had heartburn later in the evening but then it went away. I wasn't totally sure this was from the coffee, so this afternoon I made another cup with a different kind of beans. After about 2 ounces my stomach felt weird again, so I quit. A couple hours later I had a bit of digestive issues. So, for now I am going to assume my body does not, in fact, like coffee and take it off the menu. I am going to wait until I feel totally better before trying to add anything else new.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
