Thanks for your support gracecody... good to know Im not the only one. I love dairy so even today, day one, has been hard. not to mention cutting out the coffee too! luckily I can nap as I please (this is my first babe) so that helps. day one down and I managed to survive! YAY! hey, if anything it will help the baby weight go away faster!

Well I am right there with you, I am off the dairy now too after some fussy episodes here. I figured that if both of my other children couldn't tolerate dairy then it seems likely that this one may have trouble, too. So I'm going to just eliminate it for now and try to reintroduce it in several weeks and see how it goes. This way I won't be wondering every time he's fussy, if it's because of the dairy I've eaten.
You're absolutely right, it certainly may kick start your weight loss. :) I ended up 10 lbs below my original pre preg weight in about 4-5 months' time, largely due to eliminating dairy and learning a lot about food and nutrition in the process.
Hopefully you have a natural foods grocery store nearby as it makes it so easy to find substitutes. If you need any help coming up with subs let me know too as I've done this for a total of 4 years or so at this point. :)
