It has been way too long...

I am not really very good at posting on my blog spot, but decided to try again

My MS is getting worse when it comes to walking. My pain is bearable. I am doing different things to combat it.

Last Mothers day, by dear children shared the stomach flu that they all had. I haven't been that sick in many, many years. A couple days later, I was figuring out what I had eaten and how I really cut down because of the flu. I just kept it up. I have been journaling all of my food ever since. The good days, which are most, and the bad days, which are a few. I have held myself accountable. I have decided that I am too old to worry about diets. I eat, mostly, good foods. I do not eat processed foods often. It is like about 10% of my diet. I try to eat mostly organic. I am happy and I want ice cream. LOL! I have 2.6 lbs to go to get some ice cream. Ice cream is my down fall, so it is really the only food I am limiting.

Since I do not feel deprived, I am doing much better. Deprivation is the worst thing you can do on changing eating patterns. I also, am not bringing myself down for messing up. It happens and the next day will be ok. It is ok to be human. I have lost 17.4 lbs since Mothers Day. Is that going too slow? No, it is just right. Slow but sure, wins the race. If I hadn't started journaling, I would still have a huge tummy, now I just have a medium tummy. LOL! Will I be at my goal in a year? I doubt it, but anything is better then nothing.

I hope everyone is having a great Mid October day. It is warming up here, 54 and clouds.

    Mamabugaz - I also took myself off all medication. I was only taking Baclofen and Naltrexone for the MS. I do still take the glaucoma drops. It has been 10 months with the other 2. I am still having withdrawal symptoms but they are much easier to handle. I had gained 10 lbs. very quickly The one thing I did notice is the lack of brain fog. It is only occasionally now. It was 24/7 before. I do eat wheat, but only organic, and dairy is cut way down, but I still have it. Sugar is not gone, but it no longer rules me

    Nice to hear from you, I have been a regular on People with disabilities. It was very active for a bit, but it still has a handful of us posting.

    It's so good to hear from you again. I really don't come to Spark people very frequently. I'm more of an MSWorld person.

    My MS seemed to be progressing somewhat quickly for two or three years. I started seeing a functional medicine doctor a little over a year ago. Unlike you, I've made significant dietary changes. Because I've decided it's worth it, I mostly don't feel deprived.

    I eat no wheat, no dairy and, at home, I also avoid other foods that I'm sensitive to. I also got rid of toxins from my kitchen and personal care supplies. My MS has stabilized.

    I'd love to see you posting on your blog more frequently! Or in a Spark group. 🙂
