Life is to short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. It it changes your life, let it. No body said it would be easy, they just promised, IT WOULD BE WORTH IT.
Wishing you an extraordinary June.

Hi Pat,
You were asking about the recipes, Pete & I have joined Slimming World (don't know if you have it over there) on advice from my Doctor to lose weight in order to get my knees replaced. It's absolutely amazing, we've both lost over 30lbs in 10 weeks! We've never eaten so much in our lives but it's all healthy filling food. Basically we cook everything from scratch using Fry-lite cooking spray oil & always using less than 5% fat meat. We can have any sort of meat as long as all visible fat is removed. It's much better than the pre prepared meals we were having before even though they were lower in calories. We're both feeling much better & now have the support of our weekly group meetings.
Hope you & yours are keeping well.

Dear Patricia thank you for your thoughtfulness.

With my Colitis disease. I cannot eat salads or any shaded veggies or just three veggies that has to be blended.

I have Microscopic Colitis it is much different then ordinary

That is why I cannot use the food plan on sparks . I eat very little.

I am only four pounds to my weight goal.

With my disease I have only gained 5 pounds in two years.

I can walk but not far as I have also sciatic in my right leg.

It keeps me from doing exercise what I did years ago.

So I am here now basically to lift others up . Use up my goodies that I accumulate and be friends to other new ones or others I read about.

God Bless! I will never say no to anyone who wishes to pray for me.

I know the Lord knows my needs and in his time he will do what he feels fit for me.

Still not feeling that after 31.5lbs I'm ready to take some photos, think I'll wait a bit longer. Having to still lose another 6 stones (84lbs) till I get to a Knee Surgery weight so you'll have to wait a bit longer.
