WE ATE OUT AGAIN YESTERDAY SINCE THE NEW MOTOR AND CORD HAD NOT ARRIVED YET FOR OUR FRIDGE THAT GOT BLOWN UP WITH THE FIRE TORNADO. I UNPLUGGED EVERYTHING I COULD REACH (INCLUDING MY COMPUTER) AND HAD BACKED IT UP FIRST. DH DID NOT DO HIS AND LOST ALL HIS PERSONAL AND BUSINESS ACCOUNTS AS WELL AS THE COMPUTER ITSELF. ALL OUR WALL SOCKETS HAVE BLACK SOOT AROUND THEM. I UNPLUGGED WHAT I COULD REACH BUT KNEW THE REST WOULD BE COVERED BY INSURANCE. IT'S JUST GETTING IT ALL BACK IN SHAPE AND NEW SOCKETS IN. I WAITED FOR DH TO DO IT BUT THAT WAS A JOKE. THE ELECTRICIANS WERE HERE THIS MORNING AND GOT ALL THE SOCKETS IN AND I GOT ALL THE SOOT OFF WITH A MR. CLEAN MAGIC ERASER. I GOT MY NEW FRIDGE AND FREEZER WASHED OUT GOOD SO WHEN THE MOTOR AND CORD COMES TOMORROW, IT IS READY TO GO. I WILL THEN HAVE TO GO TO MY BROTHER-IN-LAW'S TO GET ALL OUR FROZEN FOOD BACK. I DID GET MY NEW WASHER AND DRYER UNPLUGGED, AND MY COMPUTER. BUT OUR PHONE LINES ARE FRIED. SO I'M NOT SURE WHEN THEY WILL BE BACK UP. AT LEAST I HAVE MY CELL AND DID THINK TO PULL THE CHARGER OUT OF THE WALL. DH DID NOT.
WHY ARE WOMEN ALWAYS SMARTER THAN GUYS? AND SCIENCE SAYS MEN HAVE BIGGER BRAINS. HMMM .....
EATING OUT IS HARD FOR ME NOW SINCE THERE IS LITTLE MILD ENOUGH FOR ME TO EAT. I BLEW IT YESTERDAY AND SUFFERED ALL NIGHT FOR IT. BUT IT IS SO AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL HERE TODAY THAT I AM JUST GOING TO SIT OUTSIDE AND ENJOY IT.

SHARON - NO! DARN IT! BUT WE DID GET A 40 DEGREE TEMPERATURE DROP WITH BIG STORMS. I WILL TRY TO POST SOME PICTURES OF OUR FIRE TORNADOES - WHICH I HAVE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF. WHEN THESE HIT A HOUSE, IT JUST EXPLODES. NO ONE CAN SURVIVE AND WE HAD TWO OF THEM HERE.

STILL NOT EATING NORMALLY BUT I AM TRYING. TWO MORE DAYS ON THIS BATCH OF ANTI-BIOTICS AND THEN, HOPEFULLY, SOME RELIEF FOR AWHILE. FLU SHOTS ON THURSDAY SO LET'S HOPE I DON'T CATCH SOMETHING ELSE BETWEEN NOW AND THEN. I'M LIKE A MAGNET FOR GERMS. I THINK I WILL BE LIKE "MONK" ON TV AND GO AROUND CARRYING WIPES EVERYWHERE I GO AND NOT LET ANYONE TOUCH ME OR BREATHE ON ME. LOL

HELLO STRANGERS! I HAVE NOT BEEN NEGLECTING YOU BUT HAVE BEEN WITHOUT INTERNET, TV, PHONES OR ANYTHING FOR 10 DAYS. NO IDEA WHY OUR COMPLEX IS OUT BUT THE CITY IS TAKING FOREVER TO FIX IT. THEY HAVE OUR WHOLE ROAD TORN UP. QUITE CHALLENGING WHEN YOU HAVE TO PARK ON THE NEXT STREET JUST TO BE ABLE TO GET GROCERIES OR RUN AN ERRAND. THANK GOODNESS FOR MY KINDLE OR I WOULD DIE OF BOREDOM.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I HAVE BEEN EATING. I AM STILL ON CLEAR LIQUIDS MOST OF THE DAY BUT ALLOWED ONE MEAL IN THE EVENING SO MY BLOOD SUGARS DON'T BOTTOM OUT. I WONDER IF I WILL EVER BE THE SAME. BUT YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO. I WILL POST MORE WHEN I AM NOT SITTING IN THE LIBRARY OF ANOTHER CONDO COMPLEX. THE DOOR WAS UNLOCKED SO I LET MYSELF IN. I SURE HOPE I DON'T GET CAUGHT.

Hello Everyone

Erin-I hope your feeling better. and that your able to eat better again. and Sharon I'm sorry to hear that your also feeling under the weather. I'll keep you both in my prayers.

Sharon-I've been really lucky! and I say that because the Dr. said that I'd be in pain for at least two/three weeks. and I've not had any pain at all. at any time. So I'm doing really well. and they thought I was going to have some other issue's to but I never had them. I'm hoping by next week, to get back to the gym but we'll see what the Dr. has to say about that. I just went out the other day. While my daughter was here, she decorated my house, so I can have a halloween party. lol it's on the 11th and I'm having aother one on the 21 of Oct. because more people wanted to come. and I wasn't up to having so many people over yet. Then on the 24th. I'm hoping to take a trip to Grants Pass before the Winter gets here.

hope everyone else is doing well.

hugs,
Maryann

I have not been on much as i have not felt well ....headache , hard cough and chest pain . Dh has had a headcold i guess . I really have thought mine was allergies but the cough feels like bronchitis but doesn't last as long .. short burst of coughing and i don't feel sick and my temp. is fine even low .

ERIN sorry you have been so sick for so long . Hope the dr. does more for you and you can eat again . You must have lost lbs by now ( more than you have i mean ) My dil says there is a sodium free bullion you can then add what you want for taste . Our Tops has it and i will get some next time i go to town ( sound like a country bumpkin ,lol ) Oh yeah i am one !
I wish i could drink hot tea at night but no matter what kind i drink it makes my face feel like it is on Fire and my tummy doesn't like it either ....Anyone know why ?

Maryann i hope you are mending and out of most of the pain .

KIM ....glad your dr. changed your med .
I didn't make it to church again for not wanting to cough near others . emoticon

YET ANOTHER PITIFUL DAY OF EATING. BUT MONDAY I GO BACK TO THE DR. AND, HOPEFULLY, WILL BE CLEARED TO START TRYING TO EAT SOME REAL FOOD AGAIN. I HAVE BEEN CRAVING A DOUBLE JALAPEŅO BURGER WITH CREOLE SAUCE BUT DON'T THINK THAT WOULD BE REAL WISE. HA! I WILL SETTLE FOR A BOWL OF CEREAL OR A CHICKEN SANDWICH AND IT WILL TASTE LIKE HEAVEN AFTER 8 WEEKS OF THIS GARBAGE. BUT I BETTER NOT PUT THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE HERE AND WAIT AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY. MY TOTALS FOR YESTERDAY ARE:

WATER - 10
CALORIES - 393
FREGGIES - 2
FAT - 3
PROTEIN - 5
FIBER - 7
SODIUM - 1,428 THAT PESKY CHICKEN BOUILLON!

I'M SURE I'M IN STARVATION MODE AND VERY WEAK. SO I WILL HAVE TO START BUILDING UP FROM SCRATCH AGAIN. I'VE DONE IT BEFORE AND I WILL DO IT AGAIN. GO ME! I AM REALLY HOPING I CAN MAKE IT TO CHURCH MYSELF TOMORROW AS DH IS SICK OF HAULING ME AROUND AND I AM SICK OF HIS TERRIBLE DRIVING. HA! HA!

Erin-So sorry! to hear that your having these issue's with food poisoning. I've had it! and know how awful! it can be. I hope it doesn't happen again. I'll keep u in my prayers.

I hope everyone else is doing well. I'm in need of prayers. My daugther is flying out to be with me for one week. I'm going in on Tuesday (the 17th) for a precidure and need all the prayers I can get. I'm told that I'd be in pain for about 2 to 3 weeks. and hopefully! not any longer but with me. and my luck! it would be longer. my daughter can't stay longer than the one week. she's flying out this Saturday. we'll have fun for a few days together and then I'll be dreading! going in on Tuesday. So if you don't hear from me in a while. it's because I'm in to much pain.

As of yesterday. I'm down 2 more pounds. that's 50 pounds and 19 inches that I've lost. I've only got 8 more pounds to go! and I'm done.

hope everyone is doing well.

hugs,
Maryann

I HAVE TO WONDER IF I WILL EVER BE ABLE TO EAT NORMALLY AGAIN. FOOD POISONING FROM A PARASITE HAS THE LINGERING EFFECTS OF SOMETHING LIKE LYME DISEASE. EVERY TIME I TRY TO EAT SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE REGULAR FOR ME, I SPEND ALL DAY IN THE BATHROOM. SO IT HAS BEEN CLEAR LIQUIDS, BANANAS, RICE, APPLESAUCE AND TOAST FOR SO LONG THAT I HAD TO EAT A CHICKEN SANDWICH YESTERDAY. ALTHOUGH IT DIDN'T MAKE ME SICK, IT DID GIVE ME TERRIBLE STOMACH CRAMPS. THAT WAS WELL OVER A MONTH AGO AND DH STILL REFUSES TO LET ME BECOME PART OF THE CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT AGAINST OLIVE GARDEN. BUT HE ISN'T THE ONE DEALING WITH THIS BECAUSE HE ONLY EATS SUGAR AND JUNK. I MISS MY HEALTHY FOOD! MY TOTALS FOR YESTERDAY ARE:

WATER - 10
CALORIES - 715
FREGGIES - 2
FAT - 19
PROTEIN - 31
SODIUM - 972
FIBER - 5

BOY - I SURE BETTER BE LOSING WEIGHT WITH WHAT LITTLE I HAVE BEEN EATING. EVERYTHING GOES RIGHT THROUGH ME AND I SPEND UP WITH ALL MY TIME IN THE BATHROOM. DR. SAYS IT'S FROM COUGHING ALL THIS MUCUS. SO APPETIZING TO HEAR. SO I JUST HOPE IT GOES AWAY WHEN THIS BRONCHITIS DOES. ALTHOUGH HE SAYS FOR MANY PEOPLE, IT IS LASTING 3 WEEKS OR MORE. YIKES! MY TOTALS:

WATER - 11
CALORIES - 637
FREGGIES - 2

THURS. DH STARTED WITH BRONCHITIS. SATURDAY HE GAVE IT TO ME. SO SWEET OF HIM TO SHARE. I FEEL FINE BUT AM COUGHING MY BRAINS OUT. STILL, HE HAD A TASTE FOR TURTLE COOKIES TODAY. JUST LIKE THE CANDY, THEY HAVE CARAMEL, CHOCOLATE AND PECANS. SINCE I CAN'T EAT NUTS, I WON'T EVEN BE TEMPTED. BUT THEY SURE SMELL GOOD. I DID MAKE A GREAT QUICHE WITH TONS OF VEGGIES LAST NIGHT.

Hello Everyone. hope everyone had a great labor day week end. I thought mine was going to be hectic but it ended up being a relaxed one. and I needed it. now back to the rush! again. lol So, who's birthday was it.??? I'm sorry I missed it and didn't get to wish someone a happy birthday. Happy Belaided birthday to who's every birthday it was.

Sharon-CONGRATS! on your weight loss. WTG! keep it up! great news about your husband. He has been in my prayers. and that's such good news.

Erin/Kim-hope your both doing better. I'll keep you both in my prayers.

UP DATE-My sister Rachell seems to be doing really good. I talked to her for two hours yesterday. and she sounded so good. for a change. she was visiting with my mom and sister for the last few days. and I was really happy to hear that because she's really not been visiting anyone. for so long. I just hope she can keep it up.

Well, I've still not lost any weight but I'm down one more inch. so now I'm down a total of 19 in. and almost 50 pounds. I've been on a stand still for a really long time. almost two months for losing weight. but I'm happy losing the one inch. I can't complain.

hugs,
Maryann

Erin - I have the Nook application downloaded on my Fire HD, so he could still use his gift card for books from Barnes and Noble. He just needs to download "Slide Me" and then Nook is available through them.

KIM - I CAN SEE WHERE A KEURIG WULD BE A BLESSING IF YOU ONLY WANT A CUP. I GO THROUGH A POT AND A HALF A DAY. 1/2 A POT A REGULAR COFFEE IN THE MORNING AND DECAF THE REST OF THE DAY. IN THE SUMMER I DO ICED COFFEE WITH UNSWEETENED ALMOND MILK AND LOVE IT! I HIGHLY DOUBT I WILL DRINK THAT MUCH COFFEE IN THE WINTER. THE LAST FEW DAYS IT HAS BEEN TEA SINCE I STARTED WITH THIS SILLY COLD. DH GOT IT ON THURS. AND I GOT IT ON SAT. SO WE COUGH IN HARMONY - ABOUT THE ONLY THING WE DO IN HARMONY. IT IS HIS BIRTHDAY TODAY. I GAVE HIM A $60.00 GIFT CARD AND A $25.00 BARNES AND NOBLES CARD. I HAD ALREADY GOTTEN IT WHEN HE DECIDED HE WANTED A KINDLE FIRE HD. THEY WOULD NOT TAKE THE GIFT CARD BACK SO HE WILL HAVE TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE HE WANTS AT BARNES AND NOBLE. MY DAUGHTER IS SENDING HIM A GIFT CARD TOO AND IF THEY HAD ALL COME FROM THE SAME PLACE, HE COULD HAVE GOTTEN HIS KINDLE FIRE. ANOTHER REASON NOT TO DO BUSINESS WITH BARNES AND NOBLE.

I HAVEN'T BEEN EATING REALLY WELL BECAUSE MY THROAT WAS SO SORE. BUT I DID FORCE MYSELF TO MAKE A GOOD SUPPER LAST NIGHT. I ATE IT - DH DID NOT. OVEN ROASTED MOROCCAN CHICKEN THIGHS WITH NEW POTATOES (FROM THE FARMER'S MARKET) AND FRESH WAX BEANS. YUM! BUT I REALLY HAVEN'T BEEN TRACKING.

Thanks, Sharon. Praise the Lord about your husband's news! That is so awesome! Congrats on your loss too.

My doc found a replacement med for me, for the hyoscyomine. It shouldn't have the same drying side effect that the hyoscyomine did! Woohoo! I hope it works as well on the IBS and other weird stomach symptoms too.

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

Oh my, that really sounds nasty, Erin! What does washing your veggies in that solution get rid of? I don't really eat that many veggies, some baby spinach and some baby carrots and maybe some frozen veggies now and again, but that's it.

Wade and I are enjoying our new Kuerig coffee maker. I have to make sure I don't drink too much coffee though. We aren't wasting coffee this way, and it makes a cup of coffee so much faster than our other coffee maker does. We can use our own coffee in the little My Cup, or use the K-cups. When it first came out I thought it was ridiculous, but now I think that it is great! I ordered some pumpkin spice cappuccino from Amazon. Less than $.50 a cup, which is much cheaper than getting it from a store or even from a Quick Mart, and I can make mine whenever I feel like having one! That was our Anniversary Gift to each other. We are getting one for Mom for her birthday. She likes a really hot cup of coffee and this definitely makes a very hot cup of coffee!

I was down to 233.4 on Saturday - woohoo, my lowest weight in forever! I'm trying to keep my tummy happy as well as eating to keep my triglycerides under control - not an easy thing to do.

Love y'all

God bless, Kim

OK! WHERE IN THE WORLD HAVE I BEEN? YOU NAME IT AND I HAVE DONE IT. DH HAD A BOUT WITH PNEUMONIA DUE TO ASPIRATING SOME FOOD. THAT WAS FUN. THEN MY BACK WENT OUT AGAIN - ALSO FUN. I AM STILL STRUGGLING WITH THE
PARASITE FROM THE LETTUCE AT OLIVE GARDEN. ALTHOUGH THEY CLAIM IT IS UNDER CONTROL, I HAVE TO STAY ON ANTIBIOTICS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. AND OF COURSE THAT BRINGS CONSTANT BATHROOM ISSUES AND FEMALE ISSUES AS WELL, BEING ON ANTIBIOTICS ALL THE TIME. I STILL HAVE SUCH A LONG LIST OF FOODS I CAN'T EAT - NOTHING WITH SEEDS OR NUTS, NOTHING WITH SKIN (LIKE GRAPES, CORN AND PEAS AND MANY TYPES OF BEANS) AND FOR SOME STRANGE REASON - BEEF! THEY CLAIM THAT BEEF CARRIES MORE GROWTH HORMONES AND OTHER INJECTABLES THAN ANY OTHER TYPE OF MEAT. ALL VEGGIES HAVE TO BE WASHED IN A SOLUTION OF 3 PARTS WATER AND 1 PART VINEGAR. LET THEM SOAK FOR TEN MINUTES AND WASH THEM OFF. NO VINEGAR TASTE STAYS ON THEM AT ALL. BUT YOU SHOULD SEE WHAT IS LAYING IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SINK! GROSS! YOU CAN FIND THE INFO ABOUT THIS AT: stopthestomachflu.com
AND IT REALLY WORKS. WE ALL NEED TO DO THIS BEFORE WINTER COMES. ONE THING I HAVE BEEN DOING IS A LOT OF READING. HOORAY! I DO LOVE THAT. BETWEEN CAROLE'S (THANK YOU PIANOLADY) BOOKBUB AND BOOKGORILLA, I HAVE DOWNLOADED OVER 100 BOOKS ON MY KINDLE AND STILL HAVE 22 ON THE NOOK. YIKES! BOOK OVERLOAD! I WONDER IF I WILL EVER HOLD A RAL BOOK AGAIN. I DO STILL HAVE A FEW THAT I HAVEN'T READ. HMMM .....

I just wanted to stop by and let the team know that two of our leaders are having birthdays tomorrow. I am sure that they would appreciate people stopping by their pages to leave them greetings....or just saying Happy Birthday here. I really appreciate all that they do for the team!

MaryAnn. I'm glad that things are at least starting to look up. Keep praying and trusting so that when the time comes you will be ready to help in any way that you are able to.

My tooth is doing pretty good. I am eating normally now, but drinking the Boost just to get done with what we bought! LOL! I like it, and it does have quite a bit of protein too. My shoulder is really hurting a lot so I am limited in the things that I can do - poor Wade, he had to unload the dishwasher today, that is usually one of my jobs. I still am able to wash the dishes that can't go in the dishwasher though, but the side ways motion of putting the rinsed dishes into the drainer is painful so I have to move over to the drainer to put the dishes into it. I can do that to keep him from having to do more! Who would have thought that doing one exercise wrong around 10 years ago would cause all this trouble now! I did try using an analgesic cream on it but the aspirin content in it bothers my stomach if I use it more than once a day, so I save it for when I go to bed. Well that is me.

I am still the same weight now, or yo-yoing around the same three pounds. Gotta buckle down now that I can eat normally again.

God bless, Kim

Hello Everyone

Sorry I haven't been on for awhile. I've really been so busy with everything. I really haven't had much time to my self lately. I just need to slow down some.

Kim-Thank you! My sister is doing a little bit better but I really wished she would put her self in a place to get some help. I skyped with my sister Linda. and while skyping with her Sunday. my sister Rachell walked in. and I got to see her and talk to her. and I got to see my mom. My sister Rachell didn't look all that good but she seemed to be o.k. for the time being. and hope she stays that way. She really shuts the family out most of the time. My mom said that on Saturday. Rachell went to see my mom and stayed with her for 6 hours. I was glad to hear that but know one has heard from her since. I also got to talk talk to Rachell for four hours on the phone. and she sounded really good and it was just great to talk to her. if she doesn't get help. I'm not sure whats going to happen to her. I keep hoping that one day she'll wake up! and come to her sences.

I've still not lost anymore weight. and I'm frustrated because I've been on a standstill for over a month now. I've only got 10 more pounds to go.

Kim I don't handle snakes to well. I would have freeked! and would have had a heart attack just seeing one in my house. Your were very lucky!

Think it's past my bed time. I'll try to pop in tomorrow.

hugs,
Maryann

I'm back on the Nexium and no diarrhea this morning. I also started back on all of my other supplements so we will see if we can be balanced out again.

I am doing a mostly liquid diet or very soft stuff to eat. I think I am going to have to do just blueberries in my smoothies though, I just discovered that the seeds in the blackberries stick in my teeth and when I chew down they cause some pain in that tooth - go figure! Overall I am doing better now! Praise the Lord. Right now my diet consists of Carnation Instant Breakfast, vanilla with vanilla soy milk; Boost Protein vanilla; and my smoothies. I did have a plain donut yesterday and today and a biscuit. The biscuit was to settle my nausea.

I was 235.2 this morning fully clothed, so I figure that is probably 234, which is a low for me! Woohoo!

Erin, I'll stay ignorant, sweetie, thanks! LOL! My Lovaza has some fat in it too (it is fish oil). It also adds calories, but I forget about it!

God bless, Kim

KIM - SOUNDS LIKE YOU PINPOINTED YOUR PROBLEM. SAME WITH ME. BACK AND FORTH WITH DIARRHEA. I TOO HAVE A NEW MED AND IT DOES NOT AGREE WITH ME. IT COMES IN AN OIL FILLED PILL AND TO TAKE IT THREE TIMES A DAY PUTS TOO MUCH FAT IN MY DIET. I WON'T GROSS YOU OUT WITH HOW YOU CAN TELL. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW - SPARK MAIL ME. IT IS SO HARD TO GET BACK ON TRACK THEN.
JUST GETTING GROCERIES YESTERDAY WORE ME OUT. AND I GOT SOAKED IN A TORRENTIAL RAIN. GOOD THING IT WAS SUMMER AND HOT!

I'm glad you are on the mend, Erin. You are so right about eating out. Make sure you carry hand sanitizer with you too. I saw one of those shows about how filthy a restaurant is, and one of the most filthy things in a restaurant is the menu! Ewwww! I think the second was the seat. I forgot my sanitizer when we went out the last time - good thing we pray before we eat! Hold the menu at the top, most people don't hold it up there! I forget these things when I am out - LOL!

I have been having bouts of diarrhea for the past week. I think I have it pinpointed to my new tummy meds and probably the abscess too. When I switched to the Nexium the pain and nausea started to get back under control a bit, but yesterday and today I had the new stuff again and bingo - the diarrhea was back in full force. I stopped by new probiotic to see if that was the culprit, so I know that isn't it. I send my doctor a note and let him know I am switching back to the Nexium and have him send in a new prescription or that. I guess I'm not out too much with the new stuff since it's a generic, I just hate having to put out $200 every three months, but it's the only thing that is working and right now it's the cheapest one of it's kind. I was eating well yesterday and half of today, but dinner tonight caused some pain, so we took another pain med and some ice and we are doing alright. I guess hamburgers will have to wait until after the root canal! LOL! I didn't even eat the bun thinking that would take too much chewing!

I'm holding steady at 235-237 and the puffiness hasn't really gone down much, so when I get my tummy back to normal I am going to have to get back on track with my high protein low carb diet. I am trying to curb the carbs, but they are what keep the nausea at bay. Oh well, we have to do what we can.

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

KIM - I WOULD RATHER HAVE A BABY THAN A TOOTHACHE. AND AN ABCESS IS THE WORST.

I HAVEN'T BEEN AROUND MUCH AND MY WEIGHT REFLECTS IT. SINCE THE BOUT WITH THE "FOOD POISONING" I AM HAVING A VERY HARD TIME GETTING SOME STRENGTH BACK. MY DR. SEEMS TO THINK THERE MAY BE SOME NERVE DAMAGE DONE. BY FOOD POISONING? BUT THIS WAS A PARASITE RATHER THAN JUST FOOD POISONING. I AM WALKING WAY MORE THAN I SHOULD AND STILL I CAN BARELY GET MY CHORES DONE. I AM MAKING MYSELF A SCHEDULE AND TRYING TO STICK TO IT. SO NOT LOTS OF COMPUTER TIME. WEEKENDS ARE A TOTAL BUST WITH DH HOME. NO MATTER WHAT I HAVE ON THE SCHEDULE, HE DEMANDS SOMETHING ELSE. I AM TRYING TO EAT BETTER WITH ALL THE SUMMER FRUITS AND VEGGIES IN.

A FRIEND IS ON THAT PALEO DIET AND IS LOSING A POUND A DAY. BUT WHEN I GOOGLED WHAT IS AND ISN'T ALLOWED, I THOUGHT IT WAS A VERY UNHEALTHY PLAN. NO GRAINS OF ANY KIND - NOT EVEN WHOLE GRAINS? AND NO BEANS EITHER, NOR DAIRY. ALTHOUGH YOU CAN EAT SOME NUTS, YOU CAN'T EAT THE PRODUCTS OF THEM LIKE ALMOND MILK. FRUITS AND CERTAIN VEGGIES, NO DAIRY, BEANS OR GRAINS. MEAT MUST BE GRASS FED/FREE RANGE. IF YOU LIVE IN A CITY, THAT MAY BE HARD TO FIND. I DON'T THINK I WILL TRY THIS ONE. I WILL STAY WITH MY CLEAN EATING PLAN. ONLY THINGS NOT INCLUDED IN THAT ARE THINGS WITH CHEMICALS AND PRESERVATIVES AND ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS. AND NO SODA OF ANY KIND. STAY AWAY FROM THE COLOR "WHITE" AND YOU ARE PRETTY MUCH FINE WITH MOST OTHER THINGS. BUT NO HIGH CALORIES SIMPLE CARBS - LIKE SUGAR. OK ON THAT TOO. AND YOU BETTER COOK MORE YOURSELF AT HOME. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IS IN THE FOOD WHEN YOU GO OUT. STILL, WE DO - AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK. JUST HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU GO AND WHAT YOU ORDER.

You know, Sharon, I ate a bunch of Jelly Beans right around and after Christmas. Since I can't eat chocolate, that was my go-to candy. I haven't had any for several months now though. I do eat some sweets, but I try to be smart about them. Right now with my bad tummy, I am eating more carbs, they settle a nauseous tummy better than meat does.

Well, after that headachy weekend, on Wed. night around 7 PM I got this terrible pain in my tooth that radiated into my jaw and ear. I got an emergency appt. with my dentist and I have an abscess in tooth 31, which is under an old cap. This pain is almost overwhelming. He gave me a prescription for an antibiotic and a pain killer. The pain killer wasn't working so I was keeping ice on it almost around the clock. The ice alone didn't work either. I called my dentist's cell today since his office is closed and he ordered more pain killers for me so that I could take two at a time. As it worked out I am taking one every two hours, that way it stays in my system more strongly than if I take two every four hours. Right now, this is the longest I have gone without pain in two days, and it's been about 30 minutes - WOOHOO! I'm hoping that this fourth antibiotic pill has begun to break up the infection and with it the pain as well. Wade's mom and Wade as well, think some of the icky stuff earlier was from this abscess getting started. I have an appointment in early Sept. for a root canal. It's with the dentist that Wade used for both of his, so I am going to try and wait it out. They have me on a list if an opening comes up though. If the pain doesn't go away, I may have to call another office where they have more doctors and can probably see me sooner.

Well, that is my life right now. Lord willing, once this gets taken care of, I am hoping some of the other stuff that is out of whack will go away too.

Y'all have a wonderful weekend. Live to glorify and honor Jesus! Love ya

God bless, Kim

emoticon So sorry you are having such problems
emoticon oh Kim my " critter" was so tiny , maybe a foot and little........i would have died on the spot ( unless i thought my child or pet was in danger ) i don't think i could do what you did ..WTG GIRL emoticon
On a much lighter note.... i was told my the son of my Rosie that when his Trig's went way up the dr. asked if he was eating a lot of hard candy .....he had been picking up 3-4 Werther's (sp) at work when ever he went by them ! She said hard candy ( so much sugar ) is the worst enemy for Trig's . Maybe you already knew this but hope it helps someone on our team.
Carol, Kim, Connie and Erin ......Thanks for all the book titles and descriptions .... emoticon

I have decided to see a dermatologist and a foot dr ........i need some pain relief ...my shoulder has hurt since 2004...i used to hold our dog (15 lbs) for thousands of miles everyday while we were trucking . I have to have a pillow under it and feel like i want it in a sling and my feet hurt , going flat and my heels swell ( the Dr. Scholls machine) I have had to stop walking altogether ...now my hip and knee pain have stopped almost 100 % I hope this winter won't make it come back. My skin itches and i get sores on my arms and fingers and my leg still looks yucky from the psoriasis . So time to get some help . You should see me on the couch pillows to sit on , under my arm with my feet up but i need a pillow under my legs so my heels don't touch the foot rest . What a sorry site for my dh to see emoticon My mom had the same problems and i used to " pillow " her up every night at bedtime . I can't get up from the floor and it's so embarrassing when we go fishing i can't get out of the boat without going through panicing and when i get out ( sitting on the dock or on my knees ) i can't get my feet under me to stand ............wow sorry about going on and on

Hey gals, sorry I haven't been here for a few days. I've been going through a cycle of headaches and migraines and my stomach and back are doing pretty poorly as well.

Erin, how awful for you. I never wash my bagged lettuce. Right now we are just buying the baby spinach and I eat that right out of the container. Lately I haven't been eating much of that either though, just too sick to my stomach to care about eating anything. I do have chicken and BBQ sauce in the crock pot today.

Sharon, I've been face to face with a snake in my house. I'm terrified of them. I turned around at my desk (in our cabin in TN). Max was on the floor behind me, just under the snake, he had no idea it was there. When I turned around I was staring the snake in the eyes. I slowly backed away and the snake made a turn towards the kitchen part of the cabin. I didn't want Max to know the snake was there so I kept him in my desk part of the room and made my way to the kitchen so I could catch it. I was the only one home, I had to do it! Eventually I caught it's head with something and it curled up. I put a bowl over it and then put something heavy on the bowl. When Wade got home he finished killing it. It was about three feet long and not poisonous. I know exactly how you felt and I don't blame you one bit for not wanting to go out to those plants any more. It's funny, but you wonder when you see it on TV, how people can freeze up - but when it happens to you, you do - because you aren't sure what you should do in those first seconds to keep yourself safe and the adrenaline rush is really strong. My first thought was to grab it and throw it outside, but I nixed that pretty quickly! LOL! NOT ME, NO WAY!

MaryAnn, please keep us apprised of what is happening with your family. We don't need to know all the details, just how they are doing, and how you are doing too, thanks.



God bless, Kim

We just saw it on the news and they said if you buy " pre-washed " bagged lettuce DON'T RE WASH IT .....maybe they did . I am glad you are feeling better !

Well i was out just starting to pick my raspberries and right in front of my face was a snake winding it's way up around a branch emoticon Yeah i screamed like a girl ( and no one even noticed ) emoticon i could have grabbed it or it could have dropped on my arm , it was only inches from my face !!! Dh asked " what's wrong " after a few min. and i walked by the window ......ok he did come out after i told him and tried to " take care of it " but couldn't find it and was smacking the bushes with a shovel emoticon but i didn't say anything , i want my berries but i have to get right into them and there are 10' branches ( thornless kind ) over my head ........NOT ME , NO WAY !

HI EVERYONE!
I HAD MY FIRST REAL MEAL IN WELL OVER A WEEK YESTERDAY AND IT SURE TASTED GOOD. WE HAD SOME WEIRD KIND OF THING HERE WITH TAINTED LETTUCE. NEBRASKA AND IOWA GOT IT THE WORST. THOSE BAGS OF CUT UP LETTUCE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PRE-WASHED. THEY SERVED IT HERE FOR SUPPER ONE NIGHT. DH CAN'T EAT LETTUCE SO I GAVE HIM MY HOT VEGGIES AND ATE BOTH HIS AND MY OWN SALAD. BOY! ONE DAY LATER I WAS SICKER THAN A DOG. I COULD HAVE TOUGHED IT OUT AT HOME BUT BEING DIABETIC, I HAD TO GO ON IV'S TO PREVENT BOTTOMING OUT TOO BADLY WHEN YOU DON'T EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING. AND, TRUST ME ON THIS, YOU DON'T WANT VISITORS WHEN YOU HAVE A PARASITIC TYPE OF FOOD POISONING. BUT I AM BETTER AND HOME - JUST WEAK. I TRIED CHURCH YESTERDAY BUT THAT WAS TOO MUCH FOR ME. SO TODAY I AM JUST GOING TO TRY TO CATCH UP ON SOME E-MAILS AND HAVE SOME POTATO SOUP FOR SUPPER. YESTERDAY'S TOTALS WERE:

WATER - 10
CALORIES - 1,021
FREGGIES - 7
FAT - 42 - HIGH
PROTEIN - 35
FIBER - 8
SODIUM - 1,145

I hope Erin is o.k. and like you mentioned. I hope she's just busy and NOT! sick. Sorry you have to wait Sharon for the results of the test, till the end of the month. that is just so frustrating. I hope it's good results when you do get it.

I e mail to my cousin earlier and hope to hear from her on how she's doing with her chemo. Well! I'm tired and it's way, passed my bedtime. it's 1:34 in the a.m. I'll post more tomorrow.

hugs,
Maryann

Becka, I am so happy for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon Never give up! You don't want to look back and wish you had kept on going. The road might get hard at times, but keep moving forward. Praise the Lord!

MaryAnn, I am happy to pray for you and your brother and sister. Carol is busy with her blog lately, I believe. I know that she has been putting up quite a few reviews, so I am assuming that she has been reading a bunch as well. I think she is active on a couple of other teams too. She is also active in her Church, so when she doesn't show up for awhile, I figure that she has gotten busy with her Church or her blog. You can send her a spark message and let her know you are thinking about her and missing her, she would really appreciate that.
I know how eating something big like an Arby's Reuben sandwich fills you up if you haven't eaten one for awhile. They look so good - but when you get done with it, for some reason it just isn't as satisfying as you thought it would be. Those first few bites were wonderful, but the whole things is just way too much!

Y'all have a great night. Love ya

God bless, Kim

You are so right Kim. and I think all the prayers will help them more than anything. Thank you! for your prayers.

Well! I did better today. as far as eating. I still could have done better but I'm sure I'll do better tomorrow. I had one activia this morning and for dinner I went to Arbby and had a Rueben sandwich. after eating it. I felt I ate to much. then I had a cup of tea when I got home.

I really need to start keeping track of my meals. I just haven't found the time to do it.
hope everyone esle is doing good.

Kim-I haven't seen Carol posting on here in a very long time. is everything o.k. with her. I miss seeing her on here.

hugs,

Maryann

Well apparently I took your advise and didn't give up, because I lost 1lb on vacation and another 1/2 lb since I've been home. Ya, for me!

Never mistake failure as final

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

I know that it is especially hard not to worry when you are so far away and there is nothing that you can physically do, but praying for that person is the best thing that you can do because the Holy Spirit can reach places in their hearts that we cannot. I pray that the Holy Spirit will be with them and reach them and that He will be with you too.

God bless, Kim

Kim-Thank you! she's really in a very bad state. and not sure that she's ever going to get better. unless she signs her self in a place for at least one year.. this has been very hard for me to deal with. and on top of all of this going on. I also have another brother that lives in FL. that is SCECTSAFRENTIC. I know this isn't the correct spelling for it but the spell checker isn't picking it up. So hopefully! you'll know what I'm talking about. lol

I just found out yesterday that he's not doing well at all. I've been told that he's doing all kinds of crazy things. and if someone calls the police on him. they'll lock him up. not in jail. in a place for people like him. and he'll never (most likely, be coming out) because he's gotten so bad. he was on meds for years but he has some issues with the meds. so he hasn't been taking them. just someone else to worry about. this has just not been a good week for me.

in two days. I've lost 5 pounds. I did have the Missionary's from my church come over last night and give me a blessing. and I have been praying for help. Your right Kim. I could have really cut my self worse then what I did. and it could have been a desaster on the free-way.

WAY TO GO! Kim on the loss of your clothes being looser. that's awsome! keep it up! It's hard to find the sofa that you want. or love seats. hope you and wade find what your looking for.

My Wii system went out on me last night. I thought I'd see about watching a movie to get my mind off things. and I couldn't watch it. so I called entendo today and was on the phone for a few hours to find out that I have to send it back to them. it will cost me $85.00 for them to fix it and if it's not fixable. they'll send me a new one with one year warrenty but I won't have it for a few week.

Hope your tummy gets better Kim.

Hugs,

Maryann

thank You! Shaon

I know your right! those meds are very addicting! and she's been on those for a good 20 years now. and just not sure she'll ever get off of them. This Dr. that put her on these should be in jail because he was giving her a very high dose. we all would like to see her in a rehab place but because she's so bad off! she'd have to stay for at least one year, for it to do any good for her.

hugs,
Maryann

MaryAnn, I'm sorry that this is happening to your sister. It is really hard not to worry, but that is something that Jesus tells us we shouldn't do. You need to trust your sister to Him and let Him reach into her heart. It's up to her whether she will listen or not. All of your worrying isn't changing her mind, it isn't making her quit taking those pills, it isn't doing one lick of good in this situation - what it is doing is moving you one step closer to getting sick. You could have cut yourself badly, you could have gotten lost on that wrong freeway. Oh sweetie, I know that it is really hard not to worry, but sit down and get face to face with Jesus and let Him know just how you feel, and then let Him have it all. When the devil tries to give it back to you - tell him - "NO!" and give it back to Jesus. Yes, your house is spotless now - LOL! but that is all the good that came out of your worry! LOL! I will be praying for your sister and for you. Rest in him!

Erin, I'm so sorry you have been sick. I tried to keep all my tummy stuff here at home, but you know how those things get away from ya! LOL! I don't know if my tummy will every be right until I get to heaven!

Still creeping down the scale ounce by ounce. My clothes are beginning to feel more loose.

Wade and I went and looked at sectional sofas today. I need something that will support my back better than the chair that I have and we have wanted a sectional for a long time. We will needs something before Mom moves in. Now we just have to find something that will fit in our narrow living room. We may have to go with a sofa - loveseat rather than something with the corner piece in it. We do want the recliners and the cup holders though, that's important in the design.

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

I can use some prayers! for my sister. I got a call from one of my other sisters. as I was getting ready for church. I was on the phone with her for 3 hours. I ended up not going to church. my sister Jeanine was up dating me about my sister Rachell. I can't get into everything that is going on but I'll just give a little information.

My sister Rachell's husband passed away one year before my husband passed away. and this goes back even before Tony passed away. my sister has been on Zan-x and Oxy-codine. Sorry! if I missed spelled those. anyways, she's been on these for awhile. and her DR. at the time was giving her more than one person should be taken. and now, she addicted.

My sister Jeanine, and my sister Linda and brother Michael went over to my sister Rachell's house yesterday. (Saturday) and all three of them had a talk with her. and came right out and said that she's addicted and needs to check her self in a place to get some help. my brother said if she doesn't get her act together! and soon. she'll be dead. were all! concerned that she's not going to be here for much longer.

I was a wreck! for the whole day. I decided that I needed to get out of the house. and as I was getting ready. I was trying to open something with sizzers and cut my self. and I was bleading on my two thumb fingers. I was lucky that I didn't get cut deeper. after putter band aids on. I got dressed and left. not realizing it. I got on the wrong free way, to go were I wanted to go. nothing went right today. and when I got home. I wanted to keep busy. so I didn't have to think about what was going on with my sister. I cleaned the house. I washed the floor and vaccumed my walls. then I took Shadow out for a walk. and came back home and cleaned more. I just stopped cleaning at mid-night. and haven't eaten fall day today.

I know I can't do anything for my sister. she had to want to help her self. and I'm just scared for her.

I'm really sorry that this is so long. Please keep my sister in all of your prayers. and that I don't get a phone call, telling me that I need to fly home.

hugs,

Maryann
