Jan I get emails from Bob's Red Mill about sakes etc. There was a link to this recipe in the email.
1/3 cup rolled oats 1/3 cup milk 1/3 cup yogurt __ I used the whole 6 ounce container
Mix and let sit in fridge overnight.
There was also Chia seeds but I wasn't going to purchase those. You can add cinnamon etc. Also the lady said in the morning you can add fruit or chopped nuts. I added the fruit when I made it at night and put a tablespoon of chopped walnuts before eating.
It's so good.
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk [depending on how thick you like it]
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Directions Stir everything together in a bowl. Place in fridge overnight. In the morning top with something crunchy and something with healthy fats – like nut butter or nuts.

Ann, Metformin is what DD has put her on and another medication. I have heard wonderful things about Metformin. The only thing is at the pharmacy they told her one tends to lose weight with it and even though she does not need to lose weight, she might.
From everything that I have heard, I am sure it will help your fluid go down. I am still praying for you and your health.
My goal has been reached. Downa a total of 54.5 lbs
I started my weight loss goal on April 19, 2011 at 209.5 It was slow going but I knew if I kept with low calorie eating and following along what I had learned from W W over the years I would get there. I didn't expect the bump in the road when I got the news of ovarian cancer on my birthday in March of this year. I still have the tumor that is very slowly shrinking and I still am carrying a lot of fluid in my stomach. I feel fine and don't have any problems with chemo that I get every four weeks .
Patty, I love the picture of the new you. I can sure tell you've lost all that weight. You need to post your pictures where you are reminded that you can make this journey to your goal.
Louise, what a scary time for your DD and you. Diabetis is a strange disease that you never think some one that is not over weight could have it. DH's 6' 1" DS who was rail thin had it diagnoses as a senior citizen. She was also one that didn't really care for sweet things either. That AIC test was sure a wake up call. Our Dr. wants that number not over 6.0. My cancer doctor has prescribe me Metformin that is a diabetic pill to see if it will decrease my stomach fluid.
GS has a basketball game this afternoon and then two baseball games. His mother has him this week end but of course not her problem to get him to the games. Good thing Aunt Sue is available. DS has the shop open on Sat. I don't think I'll have to worry about feeding DH any supper. This has been a week of trying to fix supper with out heating up the kitchen.
Patty you just look awesome! Great job on the weight loss and the black dress is really beautiful. I'm so glad you enjoyed the day. Time to chillout today.
Louise I'm so glad you thought to check DD's blood sugar! Bless her heart she has just been through so much. I'm glad she has good doctors. Keep us updated on how she is doing. She will be in my prayers.
Jan it sounds like you really have a nice day planned today.Enjoy the time with your family! Glad the car and you are home safe and sound.
Well it is another hot one here. It is really getting tiresome, all this heat. We've had no relief this summer.
Have you ever made overnight oats? I finally tried them and just love them. I have a hard time with oats in the asummer heat but not this way. I'll be fixing these a LOT!
I need to straighten my living room UGH I don't know where that cleaning fairy has run off to!
Enjoy your 1st September day everyone!

It's overcast here today (currently 59) but will warm up a bit this week.
DS#2 is here and we are all going to the Long Beach peninsula just for fun. There is a store there called Marsh's Free Museum where they sell shells and beach town doo dads but also have all kinds of curiosities on display. Old time nickelodeans, viewing machines, a stuffed two headed lamb and other animals and then Jake The Aligator Man which I am sure never truly existed - sort of a mummy looking thing shrunken head-like with a man's top part and body of an aligator. There's also a Farmstock going on nearby but not sure we'll do that. They have composting demonstrations and winter gardening. Not sure we care to see the rest - home brewing and wine making, etc.
Patty, Wow, what a difference your weight loss has made. Always a pretty lady but so much healthier at a lighter weight. Glad you had fun at the wedding. I hope you get some good sleep soon. Said a prayer for you.
Louise, oh, my! So glad Sabrina is getting some help and you recognized the signs of diabetes. A friend at church has type 1 Diabetes and the onset was as an adult..
Got the car back yesterday. Of all days, we had to be driving in Portland and on freeways in Labor Day traffic. So glad to get home.
Hope everyone has a great start to September.
Water - yes Followed Food Exchanges - yes Exercise - yes, but too much I was achey in the night. I need to slow down and be patient.

Patty, I went to your blog. You looked beautiful! I loved your dress! wow, What a change from the older picture. Great Job on losing all that weight!
Well, we have had a week. You will see why I have not posted this week. Monday night DD said she was still not feeling well. We all thought it was her asthma and a cold and her time of month. Then she started telling me the symptoms. I looked at her and said I am taking your blood sugar because it seems like Diabetes. She is not overweight--far from it. Infact, she is on the thin side--well she is thin. Anyway, I took it and it was 588!
I told her I was driving her to the hospital right away. When we got there it went down to 586--if one can call that down. They gave her fluids to get it down and also a CAT SCAN and all kinds of tests to see if her kidneys were working. Everything else including her kidneys were good. They did find a cyst but they said and also her doctor said later to deal with that after she is taken care of her diabetes. They did get her blood sugar down to 375 and sent her home.
She told me she is glad she does live with us even if she is 34 years old. She would have never thought of checking her blood sugar. Anyway she went to her doctor and she had other tests. Her closterol is high. She is now on medications and diet and exercise. It gave me a wake up call on my diabetes so now we are exercising together and I am cooking diabetic meals. Her sugars are still high but are coming down. I am just Praising The LORD that she had never went into a Diabetic Coma.
The doctor could not believe how well she looks for someone with sugars that high. In the hospital we were told that she was too old for Diabetes Type 1 but I personally know people in the 30's that had been diagnosed with Type 1. Also, I remember seeing Mary Tyler Moore on a talk show and said she was diagnosed in her 30's with Type 1.
We still not know what Type DD has as the tests are well over $2,000 and she does not have the money for the testing and neither do we. However, her doctor knows a lot about diabetes and also the pharamist where DD gets her medicines knows a lot about diabetes. We are also looking for classes and support groups for both of us.
She can start work again this coming week but only part time for the week. Then if she feels well she can work full time. However, the doctor is keeping a close check on her.
So that is how our week went!
Heather, I think you said a while back that you actually have Type 1 and an half Diabetes or was I dreaming that?
I forgot to mention that the doctor thinks that Sabrina has had Diabetes for 5 years maybe longer. Her A1C was over the roof--15.8. Anway, I had asked and also DD had asked other doctors over the years to check her for Diabetes because it runs in our family--both Types. However, they would not. When she went to her current doctor she actually went for something else which the doctor was taking care of that. However, her current doctor could not understand why she did not have Sabrina tested for Diabetes. DD has not been going to her that long so I don't blame her. However, I am upset that no one took us serious before. That is basically why we are both going to this doctor because she takes the time and listens and does not rush you our of her office.
