Of Diets and Mammos

Well, I feel this is a timely post. My number is up! It's time for my 1st mammo. Actually I'm a bit young (not by much)to be getting one done, but given my family history as of late I need to have it done. "They" called 3 or 4 times last month and I never scheduled........... I'm a bit of a health nut and procedures, doctors and I don't always get along. Reason. I feel I lose control, have very little say, and can I really trust them (just because they have a degree doesn't mean a hill of beans ((at times)! So even though I don't want this procedure done, and I don't think I'll get into a yearly habit of it I'm going to discuss it with my Husband. Go with his direction and leading. I've had some cause for alarm, but the NP feels it's just cysts. I can get a little crazy and forget that medicine can be used of the Lord. It would be better to find something and go after it naturally now. Then wait and have to do some horrible procedures plus the healthy ways later. So I'll talk to Superman and see what his feel is on it!

Now to dieting. Hmmmmm..... Where to start. I've been dieting since I was about 9 years old. I'm from Protugese and Polish decent. Hmmmmmm. We've eaten healthy, organic, done our grains etc for about 13 years. BUT I'm still severly overweight. Good news, I lost 50 lbs!. Bad news I've gained 9 back. Unfortunately the diet I went on was severly low in cals. and carbs. Well it has TOATLLY messed up my eating! I've gone back to the all or nothing mentality, crying to the Lord to show me the way to continue. So this is what happened at the NP's office. For the next month. I'm to eat apx. 1200 with carbs added back in. That means WHOLE GRAIN with NO guilt. I'm going to keep a log, but I will not count carbs or cals and turn it in every two weeks. She would like me to eat 6 times a day (hard for me to get in the habit of). Also when there is a Birthday or event I'm to eat a sliver of the cake or goodie if I want. This is where I get into trouble. I feel bad for eating something that's "not on plan". Within momments I'm feeling bad. Then I feel I've messed up and continue to "blow it"! So with the Lord's help and guidance and with my Superman's support I plan to try again. We have 3 family Birthdays in the next week!

Well, I'm off to sew nighties! I'm also havinh Homeschool convetion withdrawl. This is the first one we've missed in 10 years!
