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…

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…

Gaining weight Keto to Plant Based

Gaining weight Keto to Plant Based

I guess it was inevitable that once you put the carbs back the weight comes back as well. It didn’t take long and was actually a little alarming. At first I gained ever pound I lost within a week. That was disheartening but then it leveled off and I took off a couple of pounds. I’m still up five pounds but so be it. Why I changed? At first Keto was yummy. When you haven’t eaten cheese and butter for…

Weight, Multiple Sclerosis and me

Weight, Multiple Sclerosis and me

I had my physical yesterday and brought up my favorite topic, weight. Once again I put on a couple of pounds. This has been a very frustrating year for me when it came to weight. My doctor finally made some sense as opposed to just saying it’s your multiple sclerosis. He explained why. Yes, I do swim which is great, but I also sit around quite a bit. As my symptoms have gotten worse, my muscles have atrophied to a…

Too much fruit causing weight gain

Too much fruit causing weight gain

I might have solved my own weight problem. I think I figured out what was causing me to put on weight and not take it off even on a diet. The answer was fruit. FRUIT!!!! Yup, you heard it right. I was on a mostly plant-based diet but I ate a ton of fruit. Fruit was always my breakfast and fruit was always my snacks. Those frozen grapes. Normally I only would eat frozen grapes during the summer months to…

What I learned from blogging about self love for a week

What I learned from blogging about self love for a week

I wasn’t sure each day what I would blog about. I’d let the thought come out during my meditation. Even then, I wasn’t sure what I was going to say. I have to say I surprised myself by the end. This is what I realized… The only person that thinks I’m less than is me. I am truly my harshest critic and I’m not very nice about it either. I’m actually mean to myself in my critiques. I’m always looking…

I’m officially unpacked

I’m officially unpacked

It’s official, all my boxes are unpacked. My daughters room still has a couple, but she’ll get to them when she’s ready. For me, and God bless my aid, all mine are gone. I am never moving again. If for any reason I do I will pay the extra money to have them pack and unpack. Now it’s just a matter of organization of where I put some stuff. Changing certain places or positions of spices, pans or maybe cups….

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…
