Hi friends, have not blogged in a while and I have missed it.

My friend Holly  has been telling me to start writing again, I guess she is right.   It feels great to write about my day, reminds me of what I am responsible to me for.

I have learned that by shutting myself down,or off it  diminishes me when I do not stretch my wings,and mind.

The truth is I am 407 lbs  down over the months and now am deciding I need to reevaluate my attitudes.

Some of them are positive other not very positive.  When it comes to defending my friends, our nation, and family  that is Positive with a capital P.   When it comes to myself, I pay little attention to what I want or need.

Now after seeing a bariatric surgeon at  Ellis Hospital,I am again unsure about the surgery.  The surgeon and the practice are amazing, kind and loving.  As for having the surgery the dr suggested it is important for me to have it. I know the hazards and think if dire necessity pervades the one I would choose is the sleeve.

I have been very lax with everything and still lost 8lbs .

So today I started to do what is good for me.

I hope you all will be beside me as I try.

I think it is making a change in my gut…lol , I will ease up a little though on it for a day or two. I feel that bloaty feeling. My friend Darlene said it would happen.Yes she is right. She said that as the good stuff kills off the yeast in the system I would feel bloated.   Gassy is not a fun thing, but she has been right about everything in diet. Yes   She Told me so….

I appreciate all of my friends. Each of them special,love em all.

My body is so surprised I think  that it is in shock.   It is saying what is she doing now…hmmmm    lol

making some changes in my diet added a spirulina,protein shake  110 cal 14 g carb  with milk  190 cals. had it at lunch with egg, some meat  wanted to see if yesterday’s addition continues to make my spastic colon feel better.

Well  same as yesterday the change is making me feel lots better more energy, no more pain.  Have increased fluid intake too. After I had the shake I could feel the change. It has fiber in it too, of course. Stevia in it dried blueberries high in antioxidants.  Not as good as an icecream but I can get used to using it.

I called my friend darlene, and she giggled when I told her I feel better.

She suspects I have gut disbyosis, or gut leak  leaky gut something like that.  I told her I feel the difference in not just no pain but in the breaths too . like eating a peppermint pattie.  lol   with blueberries …hahah

Today I spoke to Kristen Hinze from Fb what a pleasure. Last Night it was fb pal Holly Naim.  I am so blessed with good friends.

I shared with Kristen that I did not feel comfy speaking on her page anymore since one of the stalking queens followed me there.

She had noticed the person and her negativity too.  I told her I would in box her and still be her friend no matter what.   Kristen is a wonderful gal, so like Ruth Rowe, Rev Penny and Mary Law to throw a few of my pals in the mix.

I love my fb friends like they are family. Some may say that I get too attached, but thats good. God has blessed me with wonderful friends. I may not have physically been in their presence, but they are in my heart.

I love hearing how well they are doing. Clarissa ,Laura,Jerry,Peter,Paul, Heather, each adds so much to my life.  My pal Sarah in England needs prayers for healing.  Sarah Wilkinson , you are a love.Dolores Mader a dear friend, needs prayers for healing from Liver cancer.Maureen Cumby and Alan Edwards also need prayers for health.  Donna Malley B,and Kristen Hinze need them as well.   So pray for each one and each other please.

I hope you each get to know each other and meet  jon pearlstone  aka  eetfit@gmail.com     Eet Metabolic memory is my weight loss buddy, he has a blog here too. Met him on FB.

Sorry have not been on , have had a lot of back pain.

I am working on getting me healthy.  I would love to know what you are all doing to get healthy too.

I spoke to Jon Pearlstone  aka  eet metabolicmemory yesterday. We are making some adjustments to my ,meal plan. I  am going to try to drink more green and more cinnamon apple tea less sugar.

Need to really amp up the roughage.    I am stuck on plateau and not moving as much. I am guilty of having diet soda. Yes  Jon let me know that can inhibit me from losing.

I am happy I am not gaining. Yes  that is huge.  Being immobile for the most part, going through the holidays…Yay that is great for me.

I am going to add more steamed veggies to my diet  love veggies, love em best slightly aldente’   do not need anything on em, but Jon has suggested that I use Kraft very low fat  ranch. To say that I could get bored with the same old stuff is true.  I do like the dressing, it is different. also like the diet wishbone, very low calories in that too.   I know now that I have to look at the preservatives in them, they can make us hold water too.

I am going to filter my water since on a water softener that is salt based.  It should have to remove the salt too imho.   Anyone with hypertension has to watch salt.  Salt is in everything. We have to drink a lot of water to flush it out.  I am going to be adding celery chopped to salads, soup etc, not only is it low calorie but it is one veggie that burns more calories than are in it. It stimulates our body furnace to burn calories.  Even the celery seeds help us all burn calories   Yay.  So tuna with celery, chicken,fish and celery, sounds like a plan right?  Right

Now with Jon’s plan  http://www.eetfit.com   You have your heavy meals early in the day, lighter as you go, lightest is dinner, and yes you have the ability to use any   weight watchers, nutrisystem, oa, beachbody,isagenix,visalus, TSFL, or  any diet that you desire.       So that makes it easy for all of us.

If this can work for me you can do it to. I do not feel  starved,denied infact I feel more satisfied.

I know we can do this together if we try. So help each other support each other.  It does not matter if you have wls  ,follow mm and the drama or not.   Just be there for each other. Be kind.
