AHHH the snow finally fell! I believe we got 7.5 inches so far, but a few inches of ice too. I don't like the ice. The roads are still a mess and many places are closed. Hubby made it to work today ok. There is supposed to be more snow today sometime and maybe Wednesday.

So, I got an ice cream maker for a gift. I have always wanted a really good one and I got one this year. I see it as a blessing and a curse. I am down a few pounds and don't want it to sabotage me. I know there are recipes out there that are not all that bad. And I can make things that are fat free. I have to really look into things that may be on my list of ways to eat in order to enjoy it or even touch it. I don't do well with sugar free sweeteners at all and will not use them. I use natural sugars if any at all. I sometimes do okay with dairy but sometimes not. Last night I did not! I haven't figured out what the balance is there or the process that may be getting to me. Just can't figure that out. I am thinking the lower fat things don't want to stay in my body. I have done so many tests to see why my digestive system works the way it does, to end up with no answers really. Hubby has talked to the doctor about if I am retaining any nutrients. Right now doctor is lowering a dose of one medication I am on to see if that helps. It was until I ate some dairy last night. But, like I said, dairy doesn't do it all the time. UGH who knows.

I feel a bit more upbeat today. Got some things going on that need figuring out or fixing, once I can do that things should run smoother.

Time to go shovel and de-ice! emoticon emoticon

    I just caught up on all of your blogs :) I'm glad you are gaining control with your weight and super excited for you for the ice cream maker! That should be fun and interesting to see what kinds of flavors you can come up with that don't make a huge dent in your progress. I know some of this holiday stressed you out, and with good reason, but I hope you did enjoy it.
