So 5 years ago i could not longer have dairy, my body couldn’t handle it…. Well tonight i was able to eat cottage cheese and Mandarin oranges for the first time… YAY! Im very excited about it, that was my ultimate test for me as i didn’t know but ive been eating dairy in foods and i wasn’t checking. I guess this surgery can reverse how your body handles things. Our bodies are so wonderfully Made! God Made sure we were the best when He created Adam and then took women from his rib… I love the fact that i can bring in a very healthy source of protein and eat cheese again 🙂 I just wanted to share a little…. WOOO HOO!
I had a great Dr apt yesterday, I saw three of them LOL. I’m down 81lbs……. 81LBS! That is a whole child! hahahaha I can’t believe that i at one point in time weight 283lbs, it blows my mind really of how much weight i have lost in a little over 3months. I was told yesterday by my Nutritionist that i need to up my calories to a minimum of 500 cals per day and i need to add in another snack of protein. I can also start eating fruits and nuts again 🙂 YAY! I was excited when she told me that i could have nuts again. Love them. Hitting the 500 cals per day may still be a little hard for me, but now that i have clearance so to speak to add nuts and fruit in it maybe easier then i think… Hmmm we shall see LOL. Im excited about this. I know it maybe strange for some to understand why would be so excited but learning to eat again and health is a daily task for some one who had surgery. I went clear back to baby foods and now that i can eat again i have to gradually put foods back into my diet but it all cant be done at one time, its a slow process really. Sometimes foods get very boring and mundane for me but i work through it and move on. I love to search for healthy ways to eat and im still looking for a very healthy alternative for flour and i think ive found it. Almond flour its low in carbs but will i be able to tolerate it that’s the million dollar question…. We shall see! I want to start baking again for my family but i want it to be healthy with healthy flour… Low carbs and i know that i can accomplish this i just need to learn more about low carb foods and better choices. This is also a process. Anyone have any good suggestions for low carb flour out there that they use? It would help to get some input on that. I know that you can take any recipe out there and turn it into a sugar free and low carb healthy way to eat it… most of the time i can also take it from dairy to dairy free with out any one knowing about it 🙂 Ive done it for years… hehehehe
God is Good All the Time!
I’ve been looking back at the past couple of months and I’m amazed at what God has done for my family. His many blessing upon our lives. My son took a summer school called the prep academy and it cost 400.00 for the entire course. His dad paid for the first half and we would pay the second half, right there was a blessing! I really didn’t know how i would pay for the second half but i didn’t fret about it as I knew God would take care of it. When it came time to start paying for the second half the money kept coming in to pay it every week. I’m amazed to see God’s hand at work, it so awesome to see His many blessings on our life all the time, even when He says No there is a reason. Summer for us is almost over and school will be starting for my children, they are both excited. Football practice starts in about a week as well. New Adventures for sure for our family this year 🙂 My husband is also graduating in Dec and When God gives us a job it going to be so Awesome to see Where He is going to move us!
Come back and check out photos of games, practices, and school days
For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
