What's ahead?

Thursday, July 10, 2014

That's my goal. I'm going through many changes as well as possibly moving 7-8 hours away. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Phillipians 3:7-11 and Phillipians 4:13

I see myself meeting my goal, even though I can't do much to change my diet until I see the DR. Mostly, I stay away from the scales, but I seem to be slowly losing then maintaining. August 1st I will know what I can eat, finally.

'I have New Attitude'!

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Finally, I'm off of the antibiotics!

I praise the Lord for all of the mighty lessons He is teaching me!


Isaiah 43:19 New International Version (NIV)



19
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.

This is a new day!
I've been healed in my attitude and given new HOPE!!
Still can't go outside and still have some symptoms, but I believe that GOD has begun a new work in me!
Thank you, again for all of the Prayers and encouragement!

work what works!

Friday, June 27, 2014

Are you sometimes without the internet?




We know because the Bible tells us so:



Self acceptance is all the approval we should need:



I'm not there all the time, either. In years past I thought I was there! emoticon Seems the longer I live the more I know I don't have all of the answers. But I do know the one that does have all of the answers!!

Gluten-free living is a learning process. Guess we will always be learning something new, as long as we live.

I appreciate all of the prayers my spark friends.
A friend of mine is giving me a drink called LIMU JUICE. It's helped tremendously! The 1st day my temp dropped from 1013 to 99.2, before I was given antibiotics! When I ran out, a couple of days later the fever returned even with the antibiotic. I'm so grateful for friends who love me. I'm also taking enough antibiotic to kill pneumonia and sinusitis. Who knew allergies could cause all of this? runny nose and eyes is usually all that ever happens to me. Not this year, though.
My 1st appointment with the allergist is 8/1/2014. Until then I'm studying about gluten, every chance I get.

    One of the office staff today did the rounds letting us all know about a place that offers gluten free cooking classes....worth a look in your area! I haven't done the research I was going to on your condition yet, but I have prayed consistently - you are probably the person that pops into my mind the most often throughout the day and in the middle of the night Della - incredible how God works..... I said consistently and that is what I'm doing - trust me, God sees all ..... xx

    Good to study up- the responsibility is ours. I've been wheat and gluten free for 4 weeks now and feel great- I'm finding it to be very easy and it really boils down to having fresh fruits and vegetables and protein- a nice clean diet doesn't hurt anybody and feels great. I've mentioned before many of the gluten free processed foods are junk carbs- may as well have a bowl full of jelly beans.

As of today (pre planned) I'm also eliminating corn (permanently) and rice and potatoes (for 12 weeks since they're suspect) and cutting dairy to 2 small portions
(if that) per day. Again this is very easy- since it makes me feel so much better. The stomach aches, explosive bathroom issues etc are history. My grains are small servings of oatmeal or quinoa and not every day.

I have had life long skin issues with eczema and psoriasis. People who don't have it usually don't know what they're talking about when they say it's due to stress or diet. If it were that easy no one would have it any more. The fact is Doctors don't really know that much about it. Again study and find what works for you. I don't even bother with a dermatologist anymore I've found them useless. Hope you find some relief for everything you've been suffering with. God Bless. emoticon

    I'm so happy you have friends who love you including me! I just saw a documentary about vitamins yesterday. The dr on there claims that if you overload on vitamin C it'll cure viral infections, even pneumonia. I don't know, maybe worth a look see on the internet. Great quotes! Myself and my older daughter love quotes. Have a great weekend Dell.

Have you ever had a day that made you want to ask this question?



Mine was today and I was in that bag... emoticon
Everything I tried to do went 'hay wire'.
from leaving the water running in the sink until I had to mop the entire floor with it to purchasing detergent instead of automatic dishwasher soap. emoticon ? that would have been a real disaster if I'd used the detergent in the dishwasher. whew

I'm feeling so much better that I actually tried to clean my house today!! disasters multiplied but the house is clean and I'm able to rest, once again.

The antibiotics have helped tremendously!! Also, I discovered if I sleep sitting up, I can sleep because I won't cough as much. 7 weeks of this 'being sick stuff' , and I'm finally getting the hang of it.

emoticon
Love emoticon you all!!
12 more days of these meds.
Still not certain if I'm moving to Louisiana or not. Pray God gives me wisdom.

Thank you, my fellow sparkers! emoticon

PS I'm down to 174 now. emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for the comment on my blog. I developed allergies 7 weeks ago. Discovered that I'm allergic to gluten, eggs, and bananas. Also trees, grass, mold, etc., etc. That meant steroids because the reaction was so severe I developed coin eczema which is believed to be caused by the allergies. It turned into sinusitis then pneumonia. (While I was under my DR's. care, too) I gained as a result of the steroids, but when I went on the gf diet, and off the steroids, I have now lost most of what I gained. Until 2 days ago, I was also off diary due to the congestion. Now I can have yogurt to coat my stomach for the antibiotic. veggies, fruits lean meats, that's it.
Long story but I wanted you to know, my DR has helped me tremendously, by giving me an antibiotic, finally! Spark has offered info on gf diets. I gained weight while sick...I didn't loose while I sick due to the steroids. Della
Oklahoma is number 2 in the US for allergies. Thank you again for commenting!

    7 weeks of being sick? I'd start looking at my lifestyle and ferreting out causation. If you are consuming dairy that may be part of the problem.

Hope you get fully recovered soon.

Congrats on the weight loss.

    Sometimes things just pop in and pop out of our lives, including people too. That's part of life.

As for what ties you to wrong foods . . . I can only tell you what tied ME to the wrong foods and it all centered around my living to eat, not eating to live. Once I got that turned around, the rest slowly got better.

Sugar and salt are addictive as well. So that's another part of the "hard to give this or that food up" problem!
