At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

Weekly Weigh In: Week 7, August 5, 2019

I have decided that this feature will now run indefinitely, and will replace the My Quarterly Report feature.  It will go live every Monday, and it will be a weigh in that will share how I'm doing health-wise, and it will give me more accountability with my health.

Here is my seventh weigh in:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, August 5, 2019.  

2. Weight: My weight went up a pound over the weekend, much to my frustration.  I'm still struggling with water retention, and it is definitely something I am hoping this new herbal water pill remedies.  I've only been taking it once a day, but you can take it up to 3 times a day.  We shall see what I end up doing with it.  Also, I have decided that, instead of giving an actual weight week by week, I will let you know when I reach a goal.  For example, my first goal is to be back to 210.  Once I hit that, I will let you know.  Until then, I will just let you know if I gained or lost weight each week.  Either way, wish me luck!  Thanks! :)

3. Health News: The weather was better overall this last week, but I was only able to average just over 7,000 steps per day.  I didn't get out to walk as much as I'd like due to the busy-ness of last week, but hope to walk more this week.  We have some fun day trips planned, so I should get my wish! :)  Also, I've been having some back/hip issues which I believe are related to a foot issue (I deal with Plantar Fasciitis sometimes, and it's flared up this last week).  I am better today than I was yesterday, but I will definitely have to be careful with how I move, what I lift, etc. to keep it from turning into a bigger issue.

4. Diet News:  I did better with eating when hungry vs. out of boredom, but my choices were iffy some days.  I am going to work on that this week.  So far, so good, but it's only Monday! :D  We shall see how the rest of the week goes.  Wish me luck!

5. Other News: Another busy week is planned, but with some really fun things this time sprinkled in there with all the work.  I am actually really looking forward to it.  In about a month, my oldest will be starting his Senior year (what?!?!?), and the more time we get to do some fun things together before he leaves the nest (whenever that may be), the better!  Those kiddos grow too fast!

How are you doing?  Do you have anything you want to weigh in with?  Any health progress or goals you want to share?  If so, please leave a comment below (with a link to your post, if you have one and wish to leave it), and I'll respond ASAP.

Have a great week!
