Body by Booker

I was in a bad car accident on March 5, 2006. I lost my spleen, 80% of my colon, and chunks of ribs. I had a lacerated liver, both lungs collapsed, had a tracheotomy and the second vertebrae in my neck was broken in two places. Obviously, I am blessed to be alive. Unrelated, I also have interstitial cystitis. As a result of all of this, I have low blood pressure and remain tired most of the time.

My Goals:
I would like to lose at least 7 pounds. One of the reasons I would like to lose more than 7 is because my old pants are uncomfortable as a result of my scar going about 2 inches below my naval. I have started to buy mid-rise pants, though.

My Program:
Per physician's instructions, I am eating as little processed foods as possible. I also follow the Younger (Thinner) You Diet. I I am doing 45-60 minutes a day, four to six days a week, alternating classes, walking, aerobics, power yoga and pilates.

I am from Elizabethtown, KY. I am married with a 5-year-old daughter.

Other Information:
I love to read, cook, bake and sing.

Hi! I cook from scratch all the time. I have Celiac Disease that brought on a host of other food allergies and intolerences. The only way to ensure I don't get sick is to make it myself. :) Feel free to message me to talk recipes anytime. :)

Hi Berly,
I don't think that exchanging cauliflower to carrot will affect the calorie intake a lot... After all, its vegetables! Good for you anyway!
I cook A LOT from scratch, and I find it really bizarre that even the recipe on Sparkrecipes are using cake mix in a box... My whole family is mostly cooking from scratch. Of course, we do sometimes use shortcuts, but always having flour, sugar, fresh vegetables, a good olive oil, milk and eggs in our home is part of cooking from scratch and is very economic.
I'm not perfect, being a sugar addict, but I'm trying! Hihihi...
Anyway, I do love to cook, so if you need help with something, don't hesitate!
