Plant based eating with multiple sclerosis

Plant based eating with multiple sclerosis

A few weeks ago I made the decision to go back to plant based eating. Going back to Plant based eating. I wanted to get away from processed foods that once again started to fill me refrigerator and cabinets. I follow closely with Forks over Knives. https://www.forksoverknives.com/. I have their app and use a majority of their recipes. I also love Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS) https://overcomingms.org/recovery-program/diet. This is also a great site focused on fruits and vegetables, whole grains and…

Going back to Plant based eating

Going back to Plant based eating

I made a decision last week to go back to eating more plant based/vegan. It has nothing to do with diet in a losing weight idea. I think I’ve given up on that concept because nothing works for me anymore. I need to accept my body for where it is today. I canceled my weight watchers membership. I’ve noticed over time myl eating has changed to incorporate a lot of processed foods again. Things that were easy points on weight…

Intermittent Fasting 18 months later

Intermittent Fasting 18 months later

Sometimes I’m amazed when I look at my stats to see which blogs are still popular getting consistent hits. Like this one on Intermittent Fasting two months later https://multipleexperiences.org/2018/08/31/intermittent-fasting-2-months-later/. This blog was written in August of 2018. However it wasn’t the popularity of the blog that struck me it was the date I wrote the blog because I STILL EAT THIS WAY!!!! Wow that’s along time and this blog was written two months later. I actually started eating the intermittent…

My manifestation challenge

My manifestation challenge

My manifestation challenge is one week complete. I’ve done every exercise each day aligning myself with the universe. Yesterday was about asking for a sign that you are on the right track. My sign is always my 22 in strange places, meaning I can’t be looking at some clock in my house waiting for the time to reach 22 minutes passed the hour. Too easy. It has to be something random. My sign can also be my 1122. If I’m…

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

Wow I can’t believe in 10 days another year begins. 2020!! I guess it has to be easier than writing 2019. I do better with even numbers and even better when my 22 is in a number I’m writing. New Years resolutions, I don’t do them because I don’t need a specific day of the year to start something to make a change of habit. If I want something to change it isn’t the date that is going to make…

Weighted down

Weighted down

I almost signed up for Nutrisystem yesterday. Luckily my mom called and I asked her what she thought before I push the button to purchase. She talked me out of it and she made extremely good sense as to why it was pointless. Purchasing pre-portioned, vacuum sealed, preservative induced foods against what I eat normally was extremely dumb.  I eat fresh foods. I make meals from scratch. I don’t eat anything that has been processed. I read labels all…

Beautiful despite weight

Beautiful despite weight

I am out of the house early today. Sitting at my primary doctor’s office for my annual physical. Nothing exciting but I did bring up my ever nagging issue of weight. As expected I was up weight from the previous year. No matter what I do, I am always up weight. It has been extremely frustrating. I worked so hard taking weight off and maintaining that loss for years. I still work so hard to exercise to the best of…

Goodbye Scale

Goodbye Scale

Today is the first day I’m going out in a week. Between my stomach issues and the excessive heat I’ve been home bound. I can’t even complain about it because I felt terrible for a good portion of those days. I was happy to have my family support and the unconditional love of my dogs. My weight shot back up, everything I lost over the last month is back plus a pound or two. I spoke to both neurologists and…

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 didn’t want to write this yet but it is a success story that I need to share. I’ve been doing intermittent fasting for over a year. I was doing a 16:8 fast. This is where you fast for 16 hours and eat during a window of 8 hours. For me that window of eating was 11-7. I was never a big breakfast eater so it worked well for me although I wasn’t really losing weight from it despite my…
