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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 42, October 19, 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 forty-second weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, October 19, 2020.

2. Weight: My weight went up about a pound and a half this week.  I know it is in part from not being as active as I had been, and I am also dealing with some water retention.  I have every confidence that I will be back on the weight loss track again next week if I follow my rules.  Here's hoping anyway! :)

3. Health News: I averaged just under 7,000 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%.

Still no word on my rheumatologist appointment.  If the referral is denied, then I am planning about asking to see a regular cardiologist (the one I tried to see before only dealt with cardiac issues that required invasive procedures) for now and see if they have any recommendations as I am still dealing with some minor symptoms if my diet isn't 100% correct or I've dealt with any amount of stress outside of the norm (sometimes even within the norm).  We shall see, and I'll keep you posted.

I would say that I'm doing pretty well overall.  I am still dealing with my quirks now and then, but other than that, I really can't complain.

4. Diet News:  No complaints here.  I'm starting to get into a groove here, so that's good.  I just have to really watch that I don't overdo the salt (that's a fine balance) if I want my water retention to be under control and my heart to behave.  Most of the time, I do really well, though.

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For just over a year now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue that has been very frustrating to pin down (we're still trying to figure out exactly what's going on).  He is starting to have more daily issues, especially when it comes to the nausea and headaches.  We are waiting for the results of the HIDA scan, and then we will make a game plan.  If you'd like more of a current update/rundown on his condition, you can click here.

As to our week, our oldest has started his online courses, so that's adding another element to our weekly crazy.  So far, so good.  At least we have no appointments scheduled this week, but I know that could change.  We'll see how it goes.  Overall, though, this week should be more normal and less chaotic.  Let's hope so, anyway! :)

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!
