  1. Amazing! I just finished a hike and feel at least 10 years older in spite of loving the outdoors so much. My grandmother lived to be 93 and the last thing she did was plant flowers before she had a stroke. She had a list of things to do in her car and a change of clothes. I deliver meals for Meals on Wheels and I pray I never end up unable to get out of bed. My goal is to get healthy and remain healthy the rest of my life.
  2. I think I will have a party when I can get rid of all my plus size clothing for good! Smallest I ever wore was a 12 but 10 or 12 is all I really ever hope for. My mom who keeps shrinking (really she is not doing well) keeps handing me her size 8 and 10 clothing as well as everything else up to a 14. Only a few of them are "me" but I take a few and hang onto them because they are classic styles and good quality. Who knows?
  3. It's amazing how much diet affects our lives! Glad you're getting to move into your house. My advice do all you need to do to your house now. I have been waiting for new floors for 25 years. Our house will be paid off next year and the money is going to re-sodding the yard first.
  4. Hoping and praying you get your house this time! Wow, a plan for a W105! At the moment I can't even imagine but I also think it IS doable. Really, I like my food.
  5. @LadyM I need some recipes/tips for making kabocha squash. Mine was dry. I have loved the acorn squash, though.
  6. I purchased two full sockeye salmon fillets before I found out that my husband's oral surgery was going to keep him from eating whole food for awhile. I think this recipe looks great!
  7. @LadyM Glad to know how well this works for you that you have done it so many times that you can't count them. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and no thyroid and had thyroid cancer. Much of my life has revolved around trying to live with inflammation. I am hoping this will work! I, too, love the food. I am a foodie anyway and love trying new things. Whole30 has gotten me out of a food rut. I am eating to the season as well and trying all kinds of squash. Are you still trying to sell your house and move? What a life situation! I guess we all have them at times. Wishing you the best this
  8. Your experience so closely parallels my issues and so far you are the only one posting about this topic. I am looking into whether or not low stomach acid is an issue with me or not. I am doing a baking soda test. Day 1 (Thursday, Oct. 1) it indicated that I had very low stomach acid but today is much better. To correct this I am drinking water with juice from a whole lemon in it. I am also trying to include ACV and Kombucha into my diet as much as possible. WOW! Pucker, pucker, pucker! It seems to be helping though because my digestive issues seem to have lessened and my body seems to be head
  9. I loved that. It resonates with me because I am just learning that I have low stomach acid. It is not my only issue but the one that led me to Whole30. I will be returning to your post over and over again to reaffirm the need to keep going. Tell your wife I am glad she encouraged you to post this. I live in Alabama and have done much of the Silver Comet but not all. I have also cycled the Chief Ladiga Trail and last year I started hiking the Pinhoti Trail in Alabama. I haven't been able to cycle distances for awhile now because of polyneuropathy. The form I have is from inflammation due to
