I can;t believe it I'm still not itching or breaking out in a red rash. Just all of a sudden it stopped and I have been dealing with this since last May. No one could figure out what was causing it. I have ate about 1/2 quart of local honey, that's one tablespoon a day. I was mixing it with cinnamon but around my mouth got to feeling funny and I felt tingly all over, so I left off the cinnamon, took a Bendryl and in a day I was back to normal. I really believe the honey is blocking the antihistamines so I do not react to what ever it is I'm allergic to.
I have also got in some poison ivy somewhere. I have it on my wrist. I have some cream I'm putting on it so it will dry up. I'm keeping it bandaged where I won't hit my wrist or rub it wrong. Its on the inside of my right wrist so you know it will get rubbed a lot.
I have been overeating a lot lately. I only have two outfits I can wear. All I know is get back to healthy eating and exercising. Try again to get it off. I know I can never give up or no telling how out of control I would get. I'm afraid of how big I could get. I must realize how important it is for me to control what I eat. I feel so much better when I eat vegetables, whole grains, fruits, fish, etc. Why I get on sugar, fats, salt kicks I do not know.
I thought about drinking Ensure for breakfast and lunch and having a light dinner. It would still be around 1200 calories. I wonder if that would maybe get me back to losing weight and eating what I am suppose to. I kind of think if I could do that for maybe one week I would be glad to eat healthy. What do you think?

I have been very busy. We had to go to a dear uncles funeral last week. We will miss him very much. We planted our garden this past weekend and really enjoyed that. We had our grandson with us and he really enjoyed planting some plants. He worked very hard, racking, digging and just enjoying being with his nana and poppa.
My allergies are doing great. I can't believe it, no itching, no rash. I believe the honey and cinnamon is doing something. What? I do not know but it is an answer to prayer.

I was reading this morning and this touched my soul.
When I stopped living in the problem and began living in the answer, the problem went away. From that moment on I have not had a single compulsion to overeat. And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation---some fact of my life unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my compulsive overeating I could not stay abstinence unless I accept life completely on life's terms. I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.
To this day, I am amazed at how many of my problems, most of which had nothing to do with my fat, have become manageable or have simply disappeared since I quit overeating.
You know reading the book this morning really touched me. I want to incorporate this into my life and live it. I know my mind is so clear and I am optimistic about everything when I am eating healthy and exercising. Why I keep overeating I do not know. I feel so bad when I do and I fill so good when I do not. Oh well, its getting better every week. I may mess up a couple of days or even a couple of weeks but I get right back on and I'm doing that sooner and sooner and I am always hopeful I will reach a point where I have no desire to overeat. That there is no problem that stuffing myself will fix so why not go for a walk, read a good book , hey I know do a blog, or encourage someone else, get my mind off of me. Yeah, I love Spark people.

This is what I read this morning. I wanted to share.
With maturity comes the courage and ability to slow the hectic pace of life.
The wise know that a journey is meaningless without occasionally stopping to enjoy the view.
Find something today that stops you in your busy life and look, enjoy, be thankful, take a deep breath and see if your day is better.
Everything serves to further.
The situation is unequivocal. Inner detachment has become an established fact, and we are at liberty to depart. When one sees the way ahead thus clearly, free of all doubt, a cheerful mood sets in, and one chooses what is right without further thought. Such a clear path ahead always leads to the good. Hummmmmmm

When you lock lips, there is a physical reaction that includes an increased heart rate from around 70 to 120 beats per minute. The salivary gland gushes and endorphins and oxytocin ae released making you feel happy...so pucker up!
