Today has been such a wonderful Birthday! I have had quite a few phone calls and lots of good wishes on Facebook. Some of the family stopped by to visit and say happy birthday. They all know that I am going to stick with my "new" menu and respect what I am trying to do. I think this is one of the best birthdays ever.

I hope everyone has an awesome week!

Take care, Carol

I have had a few downturns with my health lately. Totally my own fault. I know there are certain things that I just should not eat because of liver problems but I thought because I was doing so good (and after one of my doctor's said I could take back some food) of course I did! I totally know better and I wound up gaining again and feeling lousy. I get tired easier and my panic attacks came back with a vengeance.
Two weeks ago I weighed myself and was back up to 237.5. NOT GOOD AT ALL!!! I also had blood tests that came back that I am pre-diabetic. Things need to change!
I immediately went back on the lifestyle my internist set up almost 10 years ago. Today I am back down to 226.5 and feeling better, I have not had a panic attack in almost a week. I am planning my meals very carefully to make sure I get the nutrients my body NEEDS, so far so good.

I took one of my meals to our daughters on the weekend and she was amazed at how full she was but most of all how much she enjoyed her meal. Hubby and daughter had a few treats but I stuck to my goals and felt so proud of myself.
I will do this because I want to be healthy to be around to enjoy all my kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.

Our grandson, his wife and 3 little ones came to our house last night and brought supper. I could have the salad but instead of sausage I had one of my homemade vegan burgers that I had in the freezer. It was awesome.

I know with help from my Sparkfriends I am going to succeed!

Wow, this has been a terrible week for me. I started on Friday April 25 with a few sniffles. I was looking forward to having our 5 year old granddaughter for the night on Saturday. This cold thought otherwise. It knocked me completely off my feet.
I wanted to go and support my "sisters" (former sister-in-laws still friends) in a celebration if life on Monday April 28 (my youngest daughters 40th birthday) for their sister who passed on April 23rd but I couldn't take the chance of anyone getting this cold from me.
On April 30 my grandson & his wife had their 3rd child a great-grand-son for us and I have only seen pics as I am still to sick to go near him.
Yesterday was the First Communication for my 8 year old granddaughter and you guessed it, I missed that too. I wish I could take some meds but with my liver problems that is out. I have been drinking hot water with lemon, oil of oregano in water and just plain water. I seem to be well flushed out but still keeping tissue companies in business. Tomorrow I will have to go and see my doctor and make sure I don't have any infection. What I wouldn't give for a Tylenol for this headache but in the long run I don't want to hurt my liver. I will keep drinking lots of water and hopefully will be back on my feet soon.
Enough wining I still have so much to be grateful for. Our new great-grandson is healthy and his momma is doing great!

  Its OK to whine a bit after all you have had to miss for this cold. I hope you feel better soon and get to hug all the grandbabies.

We had an awesome weekend. I can't believe that we were able to keep my daughter's Birthday Party a surprise right until she arrived at my youngest daughter's house on Saturday afternoon. We had about 40 people and I do believe everyone enjoyed themselves. We did it potluck as I feel this is the only way to be sure there is something that everyone can safely eat. With all the food allergies, diets, etc.. we don't want someone to go hungry. It is also cost effective.

My oldest daughter turned 50 today and we took her out to celebrate with a light brunch. It does not seem like 50 years ago that I gave birth to her. She is now the grandmother of 2 and another on the way.
I feel so Blessed to have my children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren in my life. They are all so special. Thanks to God they are all healthy too.

    Such a lot of good news! It was hard on my parents when I turned 50--but easier for them when the next three did so! emoticon
