Bless her heart Jeanne......
They are just so powerful and frightening! I am not that afraid of them but when that early warning system goes off I head for somewhere other than this RV.

I rode one out with my sister when I was around 11. DS was VERY pregnant and I can remember being amazed when she wiggled her very huge belly under their bed to ride it out.... I also remember peeking out the glass sliding doors and watching the really big BBQ grill getting picked up and hurled straight toward my face. I can still hear the antenna that was attached to the brick fireplace chimney getting twisted around and around before it was ripped from the roof...... THAT WAS NOT one of my favorite memories emoticon
When our children were younger and my oldest was around 13 we had a really bad week of storms come through our town, which was directly in one of the tornado alleys, and we slept with the windows cracked open at night because we had 7 or 8 come through in that one week. We spent a lot of time in our bathroom with not only our children but the children from 2 of the apartments above us sitting in the bathtub.... So BIG hug to your DD and I hope it lessens with time.

Oh I respect tornadoes and have a "healthy" fear of them. I just don't stress myself out every time there is a "slight chance" of one here where I live. My poor DD is so petrified that any time there is one anywhere in the state she panics. I don't know where her fear came from but I feel so bad for her! She is so brave about everything else in her whole life but for some reason tornadoes scare her silly! We don't even live in tornado alley. We did at one time when we were in the Army but she is too young to remember that. Also we were never involved in one in any manner.

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.

Good Morning Jeanne, and I am most definitely afraid of tornadoes. I have helped clean up after those monsters and anyone that has ever rode one out knows they are due a lot of respect and loads of fear...... emoticon

Are you afraid of the tornadoes Debbie? My DD is terrified of them! I don't have that fear myself.

We are looking at bad weather today. Lots of rain and the possibility of tornado's. The radar looks as if we will miss the worst of it all but that front tail might give us a little ride for the day.... We need the rain but we have LOTS of tall, tall pines and they just love to come down or shed their weak limbs when the wind picks up emoticon

Wishing you all a great Monday Morning!

This is day 2 of my Vitamin D supplement and I am already feeling much better. I'm waiting on a message from my doctor to see what she wants to do about a metabolic panel soon.

I am going in on the 14th to have blood taken for both my yearly screenings and a metabolic panel to see how my vitamins and minerals are sitting. I am excited to see how my yearly's come out since I am down almost 10% of my original body weight! I need to see where I'm lacking in the vitamin/mineral department because I am still feeling so tired all the time but other than adding in B-12, I don't want to load up on anything else until I talk to my doctor about the results of that panel! I do know from tracking that I am not getting enough calcium so I am going to at least start a daily multivitamin with calcium added!

Finally a breath where I'm not wanting to pass out for an hour or needing to do something for DH! He is doing really great pain wise and I am so grateful that I began on SP when I did so that I can keep up with doing things for him! He was up and down last night and up and down today but he tried to let me get some sleep in between, bless him! My problem is that it takes me forever to get comfy and settled in the bed. Then a while to get to sleep. Whereas he is out as soon as his heat gets to the pillow! So I've had a collective of like 5 hours of sleep! But I am getting plenty of exercise in!

Another wonderful morning at 65. I am loving the cool weather. BlueJay, I love the idea of cleaning one room a day. I usually clean everything on Friday for the weekend, then during the week I will add special things like cleaning out the fridge or laundry. It works for me.

Thanks Donna! Went to bed really early last night therefore I am up really early this morning! It's okay though it gives me time to do my SP cruising before we head out to get DH to the hospital! I have found that I have been really working off my nervous energy. Yesterday I started to de-clutter my house. I found an article here on SP on how to do that in 30 days. It breaks it down to one thing to do per day. I printed it out and am following it to the best of my ability! Of course I don't have a garage so i will probably stick something else in that slot. Between doing that and taking care of the chores DH normally does I have been a cleaning fool! I already did that closet in my room and I got a taste of how good being organized can feel so I think I'm addicted to it now.... LOL!

Thanks Debbie! Got an extra 4 hours of sleep this morning and that really helped! Hubby is a bit anxious but being a "man" about it and telling me he's not! emoticon I am doing pretty darn well handling the stress! Am a bit worried about DD though they found some protein in her urine which is a sign of preclampsia and they may induce the baby early. It's not "too" early mind you but she wants her daddy and me in there and the poor man is going to be recovering from surgery!

I woke to 65 and sun, high of 80. Love it! I enjoy fall in Florida so much!
I am doing great on the unprocessed diet, lots of fresh fruit and veggies, have to be careful with corn and things with tiny seed, but doing great!

Last day to get the house in shape for DH"s recovery from triple hernia surgery! I'm tired already and still have things I'd like to get finished! Really though it's ready enough and I'll be here to do what he needs done so I may take a partial rest day! I didn't sleep much the last couple of nights! I may just go back to bed for a while this morning! Hugs to you all!

Day 2 of October unprocessed went well. I am noticing there is little food craving, I am full with less than before. Planning my meals for next week and market is tomorrow, ties in wonderfully

Thanks Debbie, I can eat some things I couldn't just in moderation. The salad was just too much at once I think. Ate frozen peas for dinner tonight. Today am doing good and my fiber intake was 17!!! emoticon

We are supposed to cool off a bit too. I don't eat much on what I call my big meals, for breakfast I had scrambled egg and toast. Then last night for dinner I had a bowl of soup. Home made of course. During the day I had a cup of diced cantaloupe, a salad 1 cup, an Italian ice. I eat mainly veggies and no processed food, I think that helps keep me full.

We have a cool front headed down from the north and I am super excited! I have more energy in cooler weather........

Donna, I wish I could help you feel better emoticon

Jeanne, I am amazed I never had gestational diabetes.

Sheryl, I seem to do so much better with small frequent meals but I seem to lose better eating twice a day.

My body seems to function opposite of what all the weight loss experts say that it should. I think that's part of my problem, I try to make myself fit into the mold of what the weight loss coaches, doctors, and specialists say that I should. I do well eating 2 main meals with the occasional apple, banana, or orange with fresh ground peanuts when I FEEL hungry. My biggest failure is in the amount of food I allow myself to eat and the type of food I feed it. I could behave and eat what I am suppose to but that's the issue with me...... I tend to rebel when I am suppose to get started on these healthy eating plans. I know that IF I can get my head straight then the body will follow emoticon emoticon emoticon
Who knows for sure what each of the bodies in this world can or even will do?

I feel better eating like that too, perhaps you could eat your main meals then and eat what will keep you in balance as a snack at other times. I have not seen the amounts required for your condition, but perhaps that would work.

My DD has gestational diabetes for the 2nd time around and I know that eating meals and snacks every 3 hours or so is quite the challenge for her! She has trouble with breakfast especially!

I ate that way too until everyone griped at me. Apparently since I am diabetic now, I have to eat every 3 hours. Needless to say I have issues just dropping 1 pound. I felt better eating around 10am and then dinner around 6

today is day one of October unprocessed, we are making chicken stew for supper, includes fresh carrots & potato, tomato sauce I froze in May, corn I took off the cob a month or so ago and froze, with limas I soaked last night about 1 cup.

breakfast was egg with toast from homemade bread and jam my cousin made.

I usually don't eat lunch as I eat breakfast late and dinner early.

We, DH and I, went and got our flu shots yesterday at the doctors office. I hid behind the DH as much as possible so the doctor wouldn't see me..... LOL, I'm due for blood work and it's not going to be pretty I'm afraid! emoticon

Of course DH tried his best to get me another tetanus and pneumonia shot. It's an on going joke between me and DH to try and convince the medical staff that the other needs more shots. Of course they are on to us already and just grin at us...... emoticon

I agree Jeanne, please don't overdo... take care of yourself so you don't get hurt and get the rest you need so you can take care of the two of you for a bit.

Debbie... sorry about the gain.. I know THAT disappointment well, but what a great plan you have worked out.

Today for dinner I had a small (very small) salad with salmon. So say some prayers....

Take care all emoticon

Thanks Deb, I feel so much better, I think I was so depressed with the surgery hanging over my head. I am ready to get out an move a bit now!

You seem to have a good plan of action too, just try to get in as many fresh veggies as possible, don't get discouraged ab out no loss, that will come and probably all in one big chunk

Debbie - Glad you are feeling better - that is a great NSV! I won't be lifting hubby or anything so I'll be okay! He's catching up on the major stuff around here this weekend thank goodness!

We have a woodpecker!! I can't reach to put the cayenne pepper where he's pecking so I have to hope DH gets home while it's still light out and we can grab some cayenne from the store and he can get it put up there! Arrrgh!

YAY Donna and Sheryl ...... Sheryl, I'm late but so very glad you didn't have to have the surgery! That's great!

Jeanne, Be careful and don't lift to much while your caring for the DH..... Take care of you while you take care of him emoticon

Well I was all hyped up for a BIG weight loss this week because I wasn't eating glutens anymore and was so disappointed to be up instead of down emoticon

I just knew I had lost so much because I'm not bloated anymore......
Opps, guess that was wrong! emoticon but I have 2 goals this week.

1. Do everything in my power to NOT ride the handicapped cart at the store. I am back into the habit of not even doing a body check to see if I can walk that day or not.

2. Very low or NO table salt this week......

I will continue to steer clear of the glutens, lactose free, and starches this week and see what happens next week. I do know that my sluggish intestines have picked up and that's a good thing!

Sheryl and Donna - You both make me realize how fortunate I am! I am so glad you are both able to start eating some fiber again!

I felt sick yesterday so I spent the day resting because I have to be well the next couple of weeks as DH is getting a triple hernia operation on Monday and I have to be able to take care of him. I hope I can get back in the swing of things today but I am NOT going to push it for the above reason! If his surgery wasn't coming up I would have exercised yesterday in spite of feeling like I was getting sick and I would have very firm plans to exercise today. I really dislike not being able to get my workouts in! Who'd a thunk I'd ever write that down and mean it?? emoticon

Hope everyone has a beautiful Tuesday!

Count me as another one with gluten insensitivity! Not enough of a reaction to be allergic, but enough that it's unpleasant. I've gotten used to Udi's gluten-free breads, and I've discovered that corn pasta is much better than brown rice pasta!

I'm glad you're feeling better, even though you have to give up some yummy foods!

I am realizing how fortunate I am to not have a problem with the foods I eat! All of my friends it seems are noticing that they are sensitive to something! I feel so bad for all of them! Debbie I am so sorry that you have to restrict your diet so much!

Deb , it is amazing that so many people are sensitive to gluten. There are only 5 types of wheat grown now and there are thousands of varieties. The reason for this is of course money, these 5 types produce the biggest crop, then let's not forget that some of these 5 have been genetically modified to be "roundup ready", still others have been modified to repel weeds, which means they have a built in pesticide. No wonder it is making us sick. I can tell you my stomach hurts after eating any type of bread except organic. Even at that I don't use wheat flour. The only way we can be sure we are not ingesting these modified foods is to choose organic in as many ways as we can. Corn, Wheat & soy being the biggest modified crops. Also remember to look for the dirty dozen fruits and veggies, the clean 15 are generally safe to eat. Better yet grow your own or know your farmer. It matters!!

This is my blog today. I was writing it here for my buddies but I think it might benefit some of the other team members as well so if you see it repeated as a blog then forgive me!

Sadly I must report that glutens and I have had to part ways emoticon

Since I stopped the glutens and went lactose free the bloating and extreme pain have lessened and all but disappeared. I still hav tenderness around my ribs and it makes me sad to know that yet again I am having to limit the things I can have. I have so many allergies and sensitivities to foods, foods I really like. Rice, rye, barley, lactose and now glutens. It just seems so hard to plan meals so I have become un-interested in planning anything. emoticon

How sad is that for someone that use to love creating new foods and baking fresh breads?
So I am resigned to a life with lean meats (IF I behave), complex carbs emoticon , and all the good things in life that I have ignored for the last 53 years emoticon !

I may learn to enjoy these foods some day emoticon or I may just learn to tolerate

them to some degree but one thing is for sure, I LOVE not having my rib cage hurting so

badly that I think they are cracked emoticon because I swell so much that the fat gets

pushed up against and past my ribs until they swell around them and the pressure is so painful that just touching my ribs is torture! emoticon ! That part of leaving the bad

things behind will not hurt my feelings at all!

I love butternut squash, so they end up in a lot of stew, soup, and chili recipes I make. Pumpkin and sweet potatoes are great too.

UGH!
I was gifted with my grand children's tummy bug from last week. It was short lived so I am already on the mend ..... Wow I hate tummy bugs! emoticon

I found that if I eat 1/2 cup of red grapefruit wedges each morning with some cheerios or raisin bran, I stay fairly regular but I should be taking a stool softener of something.....

I am like Bluejay. I take some meds that cause constipation and have issues a lot but I also took pro biotics on Drs' advice, but found no difference in how I felt or with my other issues. I guess everyone is different.

I will ask the next time I am in... I do take medications that cause elimination problems though and on drs advice I take laxatives from time to time to move things along. I don't like doing it but I also don't like not going.

Sheryl - I was on probiotics but had trouble with painful gas and it did not do a thing for my elimination so I don't spend the money on it any more. I am glad it seems to be working for you though! I have heard good things about it!

Back a few conversations, have any of you tried pro-biotics? I don't mean the ones you get in activia yogurt, but those that you find in the health food stores. There are many good ones, they keep your bacteria in your digestive system healthy and working properly. I usually purchase them for around $19.00 for a month's supply, I feel better and more energetic when taking them and no problems at all with elimination.

Aww Shucks Donna and Gini - thank you ladies! I can't find a blushing emoticon that doesn't look terrible so I'll just say (blush) but in a good way!

I too have the lower belly problems and boy do I get tired of them as well! I think it has to do with my meds as well since it's been a problem for years.

NO dynamite Deb, please.!. I need the same though but for a much more stopped up; issue, if you get my drift. My meds are to blame and so I sometimes wonder how much I would really weigh if I was more regular. I use a prescription product called Lactulose but it can cause it's own issues so have to really wait until it is beyond extreme. TMI, likely. LOL

You are doing fine Deb. Just take it one day at a time. If today was not your day, tomorrow is a clean slate. I am doing fastbreak goals 2 little ones for 2 weeks. That is all I am focusing on right now. We shall see what we shall see at the end of the month.

HI all and I agree, Bluejay is the most supportive person I know. Thanks to all of you for always being ready to help. It makes the journey bearable.
