Mystery Illness No Longer A Mystery
Monday, December 09, 2019      4 comments

I was healthy all my life. Then I woke up sick one day in April, 2014. I haven't been the same since. For the last 5.5 years, I've gone to numerous doctors and specialists who couldn't figure out what was wrong. I'd tell them my symptoms, th... Read more

My husband came back from the doctor on Friday diagnosed with pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and blood clotting issues. He was instructed to cut his carbs for his health, so he asked me to put him on my "modified" Keto die... Read more

My birthday is in 22 days. I'll be 45. Wow, I'm old (according to my kids). But then, according to my kids, I've been old since I was 25. I guess that means my son will officially be "old" next year. Lol I've been preparing for my birthday... Read more

I injured my back, so I stopped tracking for awhile. At year one (January 20th, 2019), I had lost 32 pounds of my 76 pound goal. Due to the back injury, I regained 10. Now that I'm somewhat mobile again, I've lost 5 of that 10. It's imperati... Read more

I started SP on 1-20-18. Although my body isn't losing 2 lbs a week like I had hoped, I have lost about a half pound a week (28 lbs in total)...and that's not bad. That's still progress. At this rate it will take me another year to reach my g... Read more

I started this diet the day my breathing was depressed and I nearly passed out after eating a whole wheat bran muffin. I was told to switch to this diet for vertigo, but the muffin incident was the catalyst. I haven't been diagnosed diabetic, ... Read more
Unlikely Diet For Me, But Keto Works!
Saturday, September 01, 2018      0 comments

I believe in all foods in moderation. Last week, though, I felt like my breathing was depressed, I got dizzy, trembled, & nearly fainted after eating a whole wheat, bran, raisin muffin (they're only 100 calories). I was literally afraid to eat... Read more
Day 2 of Keto Diet
Wednesday, August 29, 2018      5 comments

Eating like this goes against everything I believe in. I've always eaten a little meat, grain, and dairy, and a LOT of fruits, vegetables, and legumes. The doctors think I have Meniere's disease. Until the referrals come through and I can g... Read more

I went from being healthy all my life to waking up sick one day in April, 2014. It was only a chronic cough at first. I've been gradually getting sicker as time goes on with new symptoms and no explanations. Doctors call it a "medical mystery.... Read more

From April 14th until June 2nd, I took a break from Spark People. Actually, I became swept up in life's little disasters and lost track of tracking. Six weeks later, I had gained back 5 pounds. I was a bit disappointed, but at the same time h... Read more

I took a month off, gained back 5 pounds, but I'm back on track now. Even with taking some time off, I'm still 11 pounds less than I was when I started Spark People (January 21st). Knowing that I can stumble occasionally yet still show progress... Read more

This week has been physically exhausting. There's so much to do, and not enough time to get it all done. Regardless, I'm taking a few days off to relax and let my body repair itself. Have a great weekend!... Read more
