My Blogs explain the list of foods for each of 4 days and my progress eating this way. In 6 months I can slowly try eating foods I have eliminated. Fatigue, body pain, and food cravings are the life-long symptoms I hope to stop. Wish me luck.

June 2014. Finally after 5 years Sparking, I am below 250!

Failing to plan is planning to fail!
-Do I have fresh and frozen produce in the house?
-Do I have meals frozen for when I just can't get it together?
-Am I drinking my water?
-Am I getting to the pool often? No problem here!!!!
-Am I pacing myself ? Am I breathing?
-Am I getting the extra help I need, even if I have to pay for it? I am a CAREGIVER since 2008 for DH.
-Am I planning fun into my day? Well--I still don't have enough energy to do this successfully.
-Am I Eating at the Table?. Oh boy is this hard for me!

I don't need those hundreds of snacks between meals!
NO SNACKS! NO SECONDS! NO SWEETS! except for "S Days!"
This is really, really hard for me!

Eat G-BOMBS! Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds ...for reducing body inflammation and pain from FM.

We can do this, Friends! I can do this! You've come a long way, Baby!

Friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil - but
it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small silly
presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely.
- Pam Brown


Here is to making sure our friendship never dries up!

Have an awesome week.
Pat

“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.” – Margaret Thatcher

Lesson: You might sometimes dream about a slow day, but you know you thrive when things get crazy. Don’t rest on your laurels when you could be challenging yourself to do and be better.

Have a fantastic weekend.
Pat
