The weight of MSi

The weight of MSi

I feel a little down since my neurologist appointment the other day. I haven’t shaken it off. I’m not down about having MS, I’m down about MS causing me to gain weight. Between the medicine, my age and lack of physical ability I can’t control my weight and I am very sad. I spent my entire life battling my weight. I was always up and down on the scale since I was a teenager. I’ve read about and tried every…

Intermittent fasting 5:2

Intermittent fasting 5:2

I’ve been doing intermittent fasting at a 16:8 schedule for over a year now. What does that mean? It means I eat between in an 8 hour time frame and fast for a 16 hour time frame. For me I ate between the hours of 11-7. The rest of the time I ate nothing and consumed only water. I finished the book the obesity code The Obesity Code this weekend. I must say I learned something new about dieting from…

The Obesity Code

The Obesity Code

After my upsetting week last week following weight watchers I choose to see my weight differently. I asked the universe for help. I immediately got to my life coach but then I got an email from my cousin. It was actually her second email regarding a book called . My cousin’s first email was explaining about the book before she knew I was struggling. The second email was following my blog post where she was more insistent that I read…

Back to weight watchers

Back to weight watchers

I’ve done a lot of yo-yo dieting for the last few years. I for the first time started gaining weight in years on my weight watchers Maintainence plan. When I tried to actually do the weight watchers diet I wasn’t losing weight. I went off strict vegan and added fish. I went off vegan completely and tried keto. I went back to strict vegan. I’ve been all over. The only thing I can show for it is another 5lb weight…

Still intermittent fasting 7 months later

Still intermittent fasting 7 months later

I am still doing this all these months later. I now eat between the hours of 11-7. I also don’t usually drink my coffee until 11 as well. The truth is I haven’t lost weight from this but I haven’t gained weight either. I have to agree with the doctors that losing weight when you lose mobility is very difficult. I sit most of the time so I don’t burn as many calories as the average person. I do try…

The vegan has left the building

The vegan has left the building

I gave it a good year but now I’m putting on weight and I have no idea why. I joined weight watchers and the first week I lost weight but then the last two weeks, I’ve gained. I track everything. I measure my portions. I even cut out sugar. I don’t get it. So I’m trying something new this week. I’m cutting out the carbs and seeing what happens. I know I sound crazy. I’ve been a vegan for a…

Somebody by Depeche Mode

Somebody by Depeche Mode

I didn’t make any new vegan recipes this week. I also gained weight at weight watchers. I don’t know how it’s possible but it happened. My veganism may be coming to an end…but so far I have not stopped. Anyway, thought I’d post a song. This was actually my wedding song. I had the wrong “somebody” but I still believe he’ll come along one day. Somebody by Depeche Mode I want somebody to share Share the rest of my life…

Being Vegan and multiple sclerosis

Being Vegan and multiple sclerosis

May is my going to be my 6th month being vegan. I have had no problems being vegan other than salad dressing and my coffee. I prefer having a carb over a protein any day. How it relates to my multiple sclerosis is a different story: You can’t be vegan and not cook. This has been difficult because my hands fatigue easily making chopping, stirring and sautéing tiresome. The other issue is standing on my feet over the stove. I…

Ideal Weight

Ideal Weight

I’ve had a number of what I should weigh in my head my entire life. I’ve had an image of what I should look like. I should have the perfect figure…36, 24, 36. I don’t even know what that looks like. This perfect woman isn’t anorexic, she looks great, but guess what, that’s not me.  I’m 5’2″ and I right now fluctuate between 145-150lbs. I use to fluctuate between 150-155lbs until I became vegan. My measurements are something like 36…

Dating isn’t helping the diet

Dating isn’t helping the diet

Well good morning self sabotage, how you doing today? Yeah I know it’s all me.  Making bad choices and then throwing my hands up.  I’ve been writing this blog for three months you think that finally something with sink in, NAH.   I have finally excepted that the chance of me losing the last 20 pounds is pretty slim. Would it be better for me with MS? Of course but I think there comes a point where your body just…
