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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 2020: Week 22, June 1, 2020

Weekly Weigh In will go live every Monday, and it will share how I'm doing health-wise, and it will give me more accountability with my health.

Here is my twenty-second weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, June 1, 2020.

2. Weight: My weight went down by 4 pounds!  YAY!  It seems the avoiding sugar and added sugars is paying off as well as being more active.  Let's hope it continues.

3. Health News: I averaged just over 9,800 steps per day last week.  I am hoping to get at least my 6,000 steps per day average this week, and will do so as long as I can be out and about.

My TeleHealth appointment ended up being this morning.  The cardiologist does NOT think I have an issue with my heart arrhythmia-wise (though she did note skipped beats).  She advised seeing an endocrinologist as she suspects this issue is actually a hormonal one.  I am going to schedule an appointment with my primary soon and see what she thinks I should do in regards to the Coreg (I am staying on it for now as the cardiologist didn't mention I shouldn't take it, and it does seem to be helping the symptoms), and as to who I should go see (not all endocrinologists are created equally) or if she wants to run labs first, etc.  I am thinking I will ask her if we can do some labs before I go to another specialist as I am not having much luck with specialists wanting do much for me.  They all agree I am having something going on with me based on my symptoms, but just nothing they are qualified to diagnose or treat me for.  I have a sneaking suspicion that part of this is related to my PCOS.  Time will tell!  I appreciate your prayers!

4. Diet News:  The diet revamp continues!  I'm avoiding all foods added sugars, using only honey to sweeten foods if needed, being careful of what fruits and veggies I eat (I avoid all the ones that are mainly just sugar without any real fiber or fat), and avoiding all forms of caffeine.  I have purchased some sugar-free "treats" that contain artificial sweeteners, but I cannot eat them very often as me an artificial sweeteners don't get along so well.  It is nice to have the option of something sweet at times that I don't have to make myself, though (I won't be purchasing sugar-free items often, though).  It's been interesting going essentially sugar-free and caffeine-free, but I feel like I'm getting there.  Sugar is in a LOT of things, so I have to be pretty selective on food choices.  It is definitely a learning curve, and I'm still learning.  Wish me luck!

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For 8 months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  We're hopeful that we will be able to keep his appointment in June, and are grateful that he's basically been stable symptom-wise right now.  If you'd like a current update/rundown on his condition, you can click here.

As to our week, not too much scheduled.  We've kinda done all the painting outside that we can do without a decent extension ladder or some scaffolding, but I may attempt repainting my bathroom this week if I feel up to it.  Other than that, I have a chiropractic appointment (maybe 2), and I may have that follow-up with my primary if I can work that in.  Kind of a boring, uneventful week, for the most part, but I'm ok with that.  Oh, well, I guess my birthday is Wednesday, and I'm going to try my hand at a new recipe for a cheesecake made with honey that I hope works out, so there's that. :)  Overall, should be a nice week.  That's the plan, anyway. :D

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!
