stopping by to remind you that when we commit to losing weight, we need to create small realistic goals that are attainable. Small goals could be anything like getting in your daily serving of fruit and vegetables.
Remember when it comes to vegetables, we are just talking your typical tomato, carrot and celery to eat or snack on. When it comes to vegetables then are many to chose from like kale, collard greens, mustard greens and other dark leafy greens. The darker green the leaf the more fiber the vegetable has and the better it is for your digestion.
We also have purple, yellow and orange carrots, purple potatoes, red, green and yellow onions. Then there is whole multitude of other vegetables like summer, butter, winter, pumpkin squashes, radishes can be white or pink, even red. Then look at those beautiful black egg plants they to can come in different colors. The point is don't be afraid to experiment with different types of foods. And let's not forget our fruits, they can be sweet or sour, you can use them for desserts, smoothies, juices, snacks and so much more if you are a creative cook.
If you don't like water, this too can be another small goal, try making a goal to drink at least 5 glasses of water 5 days a week.
And most importantly when you reach your small goal, don't forget to reward yourself with a non-food reward for achieving that goal.
Then it is time to move the goal up a little. Like the water from 5 glasses to 6 per day.
And also you will want to "Fire up your sneakers to get at least 10+minutes of exercise at least 3-5 times a week." I know you can...You are ready to take that first step and commit yourself to a "HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE".... "A HEALTHIER NEW YOU"....

I'm not sure "allow" is the right word for what's going on with son. I DO ground him, take away privileges, etc. But the only way I can keep him from making the messes is to quit work and school and be here every minute he is to keep him from throwing things on the floor or leaving them out. That's not really an option. And I'm trying SO hard to not be the abusive uncaring parent my mom was (is) that I probably do let him get away with too much. We do the best we can and just hope and pray we don't screw them up too bad, I guess
Thanks for being my friend.

Thanks for your input Shirley. This is my second procedure, but with a different doctor. It's one of these big clinics where it's hard to get through. Primary doc just went ahead and sent the script when I wanted an endoscopy at the same time since I had some severe stomach problems about 6 months ago....Oh well. Electrolytes can't be that important if they told you Crystal Light. I have some Fit and Active lemonade from Aldi's I'm going to use. Been eating lemon popsicles so far.....
Hope you have a nice vacation....Up here in MI the weather is still in the 40's....
