HI everyone :) :) :)
Golly, it's been almost a MONTH since my last post ;) :) I've been busy here and LOVING my new home ;) :) I've got lots of photos...and if I'd eventually write a proper post, you would get to see them :) :)
Let's see..I'm still job hunting. I did interview for a job as a bank teller. I didn't get the job. That's okay. This LORD or something better. The "something better" is obviously what God has in store for me :) :)
I've also been working on losing weight. As of this morning I've lost a total of 22 pounds. Wow, it's gone fast...but my aunt introduced me to a naturopathic doctor. It is an alternative medicine for sure. However, I wanted to try it, because she explained her healthy eating plan to me. It's all science and no fluff. She also believes in eating meat. That's GOOD, because I LOVE to eat meat :) :)
She had me take a blood test, which revealed that I'm severely anemic, can't absorb protein, there's an infection in my gut and some other things that I can't remember. So I've been following her healthy eating plan. It's really similar to an elimination diet, where all the bad stuff is stripped away. I followed that for 5 weeks...and now I"m slowly reintroducing things back into my diet.
This is the best I've felt in over 10 years. My naturopathic doctor told me of another patient who had Crohn's disease, who followed her eating plan, and also went "GLUTEN FREE" for five years...and after that time her Crohn's went into complete remission...AND she's able to eat regular breads with gluten now and everything is good.
I have ulcerative proctitis, a minor form of colitis,...and so I'm going to try the same thing. We did figure out that I have an intolerance to gluten and dairy. So that was my decision. So far, so good, because my healthy eating plan is naturally gluten free right now. When I start reintroducing bread into my diet, that will have to be gluten free. I've been reading books and magazines on the topic. There's a lot to learn. There's also a LOT of variety, so I definitely won't be without goodies to eat ;) :) :)
The weather has been rainy and sunshine...all in ONE day, for the last TWO days...so it's interesting. I never can tell what to expect.
That's all for the moment. I'm still trying to figure out my new "sign off". That's the news from the ocean shores today. Love and hugs, Heather :)
