    I get the headaches, but no swollen tongue yet!

    I like the holistic tips, keep em coming!

    Hubby made me cook lasagna last night!!! I wanted some soooo bad, but he won't let me make a healthy version so I just had a little bite and ate a salad instead.

      Nope ... I've never had the swollen tongue thing ... but good for you Leigh for going. I started back last fall, then got sick and finals and life and million other excuses .... I need to go back in, maybe I'll look up a meeting right now!

      You're right, though ... it's a great program. I love the fact that you really can have pretty much anything - just in moderation and with careful planning. Good thinking on planning ahead for your trip!

        Okay, just for my brain, can I have the why behind all this? I haven't had these probs while dieting (I don't think). I am just reducing carbs, avoiding sugar and desserts. As far as headaches, I get them all the time anyhow so I can pretty much only associate them for sure with hormone changes and crappy spine. I like to know how things work...all about the pathophysiology.

            well, on the plus side - if what happened last time in PV happens again, just think of it as a jumpstart to your diet! ok, not funny. maybe a little?

                A swollen tongue can be a sign of some allergic rxn, whether from toxins or anything for that matter. If it continues I would have it checked out.

                Look underneath both sides of the tongue do you see anything different?

                Hope you feel better.
