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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 34, August 24, 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 thirty-fourth weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, August 24, 2020.

2. Weight: My weight went down a pound again.  I'll take it, though I wish it were more.  Here's hoping the weight loss keeps up.

3. Health News: I averaged just over 8,300 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.

I am to have my ultrasound to check on my PCOS tonight, and my TeleHealth with the OBGYN is next week to discuss the results.  I'll keep you posted.

I am now taking a double dose of my Coreg due to more arrhythmia and blood pressure issues.  My physical is on Friday, and I will find out if the doctor wants me to go to see a cardiologist, endocrinologist, rheumatologist, a combination of a few of these, or all 3 about my continued heart issues.  I'll keep you posted on this, too.

4. Diet News:  This is a continued frustration.  I have to read labels very carefully, and I have to follow my dietary restrictions religiously.  I also have to be careful that I don't have too much salt now, too, because I'm starting to have some possible issues with blood pressure.  I am hoping that we can get to the bottom of this arrhythmia/blood pressure issue soon so that I don't have to be quite so restrictive, but I realize this may be the new normal, too.  Please pray that we figure out a diet plan that works and that is well-balanced and/or that we can get some medical answers soon.  Thanks!

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For over 10 and a half months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  He is having a few issues here and there, and we're waiting on some things yet, but otherwise he is pretty stable (as long as he takes his medication).  We'd like to be able to figure out what the source of the issue is so that he can go off the medication if at all possible, though.  If you'd like more of a current update/rundown on his condition, you can click here.

As to our week, it is going to be insane.  We have several doctor's appointments, and I'm starting the "getting ready to go back to school" process.  This busy-ness has been the reason some things have been a little lacking and/or late on this blog.  I apologize!  I hope to get the Family Favorites recipe up tomorrow if at all possible, but that may not happen before the weekend.  We shall see!

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!
