Well yesterday, was my 6 months check up with my neurologist and all sorta went well. My coollid cyst hasn't grown Yea!!!! But the disk in my neck aren't doing so well so I am now required to wear a neck brace Then now I am on some pain meds , YUK all who have know me well know how I hate pain meds , because of my brothers experience with them.
Anyway I am very happy cuz then we went to my PCP. He's my favorite doc ever . I have seen him for 14 years and he was so proud of me and my weigh loss. all my blood work is normal, He says he tells other patients of the me and the way I have change my eating habits and thou I am still overweight , my test are always normal. It is so nice to have a doc that listens and laughs with you. He did change one of my meds, cuz he felt that the new medicine would even be a better one.
Well I need to eat something for lunch, and take the Yukky Pain Pill. So hope all my Spark friends are doing great************
My Team Champions in the Kitchen are doing great!!!! We are a new team on the 5% Summer Challenge. This week I think we have gotten to know each other and are learning . As CL I have made some Boo Boos!, but its a week of learning. I'm just happy that I have a lot of friends on the team that are great about helping me out! I know the second week of the challenge is going to be great cuz all the cookie crumbs are being cleaned up and there is no better way then to be contenders!!! WE ARE THE CHMPIONS!!!!

I have the most adorable two young men staying with me this weekend! My grandsons last day of school was yesterday and they were so excited to tell me what fabulous day they had! They wanted to cook dinner tonight and I love watching them when they are in the Kitchen, so they made pork chops, corn, a fruit salad and some bok choy . They never had bok choy before so it was a delight to see their faces when they tried it . Zeak doesn't like any thing that's green, but he said it was white so he took a bite and his reaction was Derek was is the vegi eater in the family and his reaction was . Then I took a bite and my reaction was one of YUK! I found a vegi I did not like!
I heard the sweet words, " grandma, do we have to eat all of it, I replied no you tried it, you don't like it so lets just not eat it, cuz grandma sure isn't going to.
Spark People and my Dawgie team in the 5% Challenge got me eating vegis I never tried, that I am thankful for. But the best thing is seeing my grandkids excited about trying a new Vegis!
If anyone has a recipe for Bok Choy let me know and I will give it another shot! Grilling it just wasn't to my taste!

Today, I went grocery shopping for some new recipes that I found on the web! They seem easy to prepare and looking at the nutritional facts they seem to fit my journey to my healthier lifestyle.
I've always considered my journey a lifestyle change not a diet from day one of my journey. I first started it with the Biggest Loser cookbooks, in fact I have all the cook books that have come out. Then, I was looking for a recipe and found SparkPeople. My DH says that we are going to have to build on another room just so we can display all the cook books I have gotten over the past 21 years. Then when we were cleaning out my mom and dads home., there were all my moms cookbooks, I asked my sister Cathy if she would like some of them, and she replied, No, mom would love you to have them, your the cook in the family now.
I love cooking, and now since SparkPeople has taught me what to look for, I love to just open up the pantry and cook from what I have on hand. My mom taught me to cook from scratch , and that is my passion. There is so much healthier alternatives when you know what was put in your meals.
Well tomorrow I am going to try a new recipe for French toast, and chili and a lemon infused shrimp dish with spinach. Can't wait to get my heart into the Kitchen.
Hope all of you have a wonderful tomorrow!

Yesterday my puppy Maxie ( she is really almost 15 years old) went to the vet because she wasn't feeling well. Blood work done. Her Awesome Pawesome Vet said the count showed a possible of two things. One: a very low immune system or Two: Liver Cancer. The second one is scary. Dr C said that also cataracts are forming over her eyes. He said, she is doing super good for a 90 year old women. LOL. Maxie will always be my puppy. So Maxi is now on two meds., prednesone for her low count and a Liver supplement for her Liver. She will be retested in a month to see how well all is working.
Please pray for my Maxie,
Hugs to All
