Whole foods

Since the last time I posted I have gradually changed my diet to whole foods, rather then a set type of brand diet. At first it was pretty frustrating but now I feel pretty comfortable with it.

I still do not eat much starches, just enough to meet my weekly needs.

I have sort of stabilized at a 160 to 165 pounds, but I will continue to hope for further weight loss later on down the road.

My doctor put on water loss pills to help with my high blood preasure. After all my work my hypertention only got worse. She said diet wasn't enough for me and that I need meds. I kind of freaked out and said I wanted more tests down before I went down that road. Two days worth of tests later, I started my water loss pills. Apparently they make you pee. Just what a women needs, an excuse to hog the bathroom even more! I have to go back and get my test results and get my blood preasure taken again to see if more meds will be required.

I hope things will get straightened out soon, I'm starting to feel a little frustrated.

But on a more positive note, I decided to take up my crafts hobby again. I go off and on through out the year. Usually, it depends on what is going on in my life. Right now I need a distraction, and making and selling my wares seemed like a good distraction. If you are wondering what I make and sell you can visit my Etsy store by clicking the pictures of my items for sale which is located on the left of my blog near the top. Let me know what you think :)


Anyways, figured I better stop in and say hi since it's been a while since my last visit.

P.S. You are welcome to submit your own recipes too, so far nobody has, it would be nice to see some postings for recipes from some of my blog viewers.

Ciao for now
