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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 8, August 12, 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 eighth weigh in:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, August 12, 2019.  

2. Weight: My weight went down by 2 pounds.  I think that is in part thanks to the herbal water pill that I started on (I actually take it 2 times a day now, and may up it to 3 times) and the long hikes we did this week.  So far, it doesn't seem to be quite as effective as the prescription stuff, but it may just be that it takes longer to get in your system and work.  Either way, I'm going to give it at least a month before I pass true judgement on it.  I'm just glad to be down a few pounds! :)  Let's hope and pray it continues.

3. Health News: I averaged over 8,500 steps per day last week.  I know that's because we went on 2 very long hikes last week (think 10 miles+ for one of them) which is something we love to do as a family.  I am sure I probably won't get as many steps in this week, but I'm sure going to do my best to get as many as possible!

4. Diet News:  Well, I did great making better choices some days and horribly others.  Diet is so hard to get right!  I'm going to really focus on good choices and not eating out of boredom/to comfort.  Wish me luck!

5. Other News: Busy, busy this week, too!  We're into getting appointments in for back-to-school, trying to make sure we have everything ready to do homeschooling in less than a month (what!?!?!?), and so many other things.  I am finding August busier than July, and I never thought I'd say that.  Ah, well.  Better busy than bored, right?

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!
