Put the flax meal in my yogurt yesterday. Didn't care too much for it. It seems to taste better straight, so that's what I did today. It's pretty good. Nice and nutty and I love nuts. Here's the kind I bought.

I've had a lot of headaches for a while now. Evidently NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen are not without side effects, such as increasing the chance of a heart attack. Yike! At any rate, I found this natural remedy on Dr. Eades' blog:

I began fooling around with various doses of fish oil and krill oil and came up with a combo that works very well for me. I take two ProOmega caps made by Nordic Naturals along with two krill oil caps, along with a 500 mg curcumin capsule (curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory derived from turmeric). This combo I take the same way as I did the Advil: before if I remember; after if I forget. If anything it works better for me than the 800 mg ibuprofen without the potential for GI problems or heart attack. And not only does it not have the potential for causing these problems, it actually prevents these and many other disorders, so healthwise it's really a win/win.

I want to try this, but it will mean laying out the money for three different supplements. I am just so tired of these near daily headaches. [Edit: It would cost about $114 for a four month supply. Ibuprofen is much cheaper.]

The water weight is coming off slowly. My size 10 shorts are big on me, so that's a good sign. So far I haven't tried on the small size 8 shorts to see how they fit. I will get back below 140! I want to be thin! I am so fat right now.

It's my weekend so it's hard to stick to my diet just because I don't have as many distractions to keep me from thinking about my hunger.

I got a pair of Isotoner slippers! My old pair was beyond falling apart. I kept checking Mervyn's and they never had the kind I wanted. At the bus stop earlier this week I found a bag of clothes sitting next to the garbage can. It had already been rifled through a bit. I rifled through it more while waiting for the bus. I found a nearly brand new pair of Isotoners that were my size! Wow. Thanks God! :) They are dark blue terry cloth with white ribbons.

Both your mind and body have been stressed out by all this medical testing stuff. Chill out and give yourself a well-deserved break. Your weight will settle back down. I swear, the medical people will be the death of us all. Anyway, God left you a sweet little gift in the Isotoners! ;-) I love those little affirmations of faith!
