I am a working mom to 3 active children ages 14,12, & 8. We are blessed to be able to provide many opportunities for our kids to learn, grow and express themselves. I have finally found my ability to take care of myself by feeding myself and my family foods that nourish. Our family follows a Low Carb High Fat Moderate Protein way of eating. Our family is seeing healing from my extreme fatigue to my oldest DD's remission of Juvenile Arthritis.

My favorite book is Obesity Code. If the Standard American Diet and Standard Diet Advice has left you stranded your whole life I encourage you to look for a new path and would say that Obesity Code and Dr. Fung (among others) can help you get on your way.

    Well... I certainly know that story. I have many workouts that I meant to do. ugh.

    My New Years is going well. I'm still feeling a little big overwhelmed with the lifestyle change for DH. Still need to make some changes, ask him to pitch in a bit more with meal and snack prep. I 100% know that I'm overwhelmed, but haven't asked for help. LOL It's my own dang fault.

    Happy New Years to you too. emoticon
    I am doing so good. Long story, made short....gut issues are pretty well fixed which was causing most of the issues. Couldn't do it on my own and needed medical help from a specialist. It has been a rough road, but doing well today. emoticon
    Currently in Florida and just finished up with my final appointment.
    So decided to get back here and start tweaking my life a bit more. No dieting any more, just clean eating and whole foods. Not tracking macros, but logging everything just to have a record.
    How are you doing?
    Would love to catch up.

    Love your page layout. Have I told you that yet? haha

    Hope things are going well and you're enjoying the Holiday's! Are you traveling are staying home? We're taking a day trip just a few hours north to my Aunt & Uncle's home. Pretty laid back this year, which is so nice.

    Hi Thanks for checking in. I did not celebrate thanksgiving with you - Canadian. I did however have a bad week - a coupe beer one night led to chips in the bar then some rye and popcorn when we got home... Grr.... The alcohol really destroys my eating discipline as I then crave salt. A couple nights later we had an awesome day together - drove to Tofino to walk the rainy and stormy beaches. There we found a really cool alien sculpture made of driftwood, then as we headed to town, a wolf ran across the road in front of us which was really cool to see. A first for me even with all my time in the woods! then we tracked down an associate of DH and had a lovely afternoon of tea and chatting. Unfortunately after we drove back from Tofino (21/2 Hrs) we decided to complete our glorious rainy day by trying a new restaurant - a snitzelhaus - need I say more! The food was to die for but bread dipped in butter scallops for appy and everything breaded for dinner.... SOOOO GOOOOD! a new favourite for us but definitely not KETO! So this week I was up a lb on Saturday and today I'm up another which I don't understand. And now I'm stressing about buying a new car - I pick it up shortly - a Camry hybrid. Excited but no sleep stress over Big purchase (normal for me! LOL)

    So time to get things back into control! I was so hoping ot lose 5 more before Xmas and here I am gaining. And our first Xmas party is Friday.... And so it begins.
