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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 37, September 14, 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-seventh weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, September 14, 2020.

2. Weight: My weight went down one and a half pounds, putting me officially under 220 again (I'm just under 219 lbs. now).  I'm thrilled!  Here's hoping the weight loss keeps up.

3. Health News: I averaged just over 6,900 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 do best when I get in a daily walk or 2, so I am going to really push to do this even if the weather isn't 100%.

I got the official report on my ultrasound.  I still have 2 small cysts (one per ovary), but that's much better than the 7 I had before.  I take this to mean that my cysts come and go.  As long as they don't get huge or cause me a lot of pain, I'll be just fine.  I'm not sure if I'll have to have an ultrasound again in future, but (from the sounds of it) I shouldn't have to unless I have more pain.  Here's hoping that doesn't happen!

I am still waiting on my rheumatologist appointment time.  I will let you know if/when that happens.  

I am still having some insomnia and restless leg issues off and on again, though I feel like the sleep I do get is good sleep, and my heartrate/BP is not waking me as much (I definitely feel like my heartrate/BP is doing much better at night overall).  Hopefully, I'll find something to help with the insomnia/RLS soon since I can no longer drink cherry juice to help with it.

4. Diet News:  I am doing better in this area.  I've made some purposeful choices to add dark, leafy greens were possible, and I'm really focusing on eating less sodium and no added sugar or fruit or junk/carbby foods (healthy carbby food like potatoes or rice or certain veggies are allowed, but only if I have a whole lot of protein to offset them) of any sort after 5pm.  I find that I have a lot less heart issues (racing heart or elevated BP) this way during the middle of the night, so I sleep more restfully when I am able to sleep.

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For 11 and a half months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  He had been doing very well, but now we seem to have taken several steps back recently.  It has been very frustrating for all of us.  If you'd like more of a current update/rundown on his condition, you can click here.

As to our week, a very busy one is planned, and not so much with "fun" things (I suspect a doctor's appointment or 2 will be added to the schedule, too).  At least we're to have some nice weather vs. all the rain we've had lately, so we hope to get out and enjoy the autumn-like temperatures at least a little bit while we can.

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!
