Everyone knows I have been on the weight loss journey for awhile. However, I've been very serious about it over the past four months. Sure, I have caved to some of my guilty pleasures, but for the most part, I have been on the up-and-up with things in my life. I have regularly been going to the gym,  and the results have been paying off.

I came to work today and my bud Mike left this in my office. Now, while I could always have one or two as I have done before, I won't be able to indulge in this because of my allergies. You guessed it. I am allergic to peanuts, and while there are pecans in there, I don't think I'll be able to truly enjoy this at all. This is called anaphylaxis and it can actually be life threatening, so it's just not worth it. I used to always have pain but I just couldn't figure out where it was coming from until I had some blood work done and found out. Before that, I was a peanut eating you-know-what.

So I guess I'll be passing these off to some other fortunate individual because today, it won't be me. I am glad I did do the test, and I recommend this for many of you. There are many times we will have ailments in our body and never truly know what they are. Get your blood work done and find out what you are allergic to. It may actually help you to live a little longer.
