up way too early and did not sleep well, but got on the scale and had lost a pound, and now am at 174 again. nice.... must have been the great mix of cruc. veggies, brocc, caulif, and carrots, mushrooms, with the spicy sauce.. almost too spicy for me, but with the brown rice I managed fine. Son loved it and he had found the recipe to try too.
I wanted to write some more about DH, he did stop drinking beer, and it has been 2 months now. Did I mention that he is finally seeing a G.I. doctor and had his blood test on Friday for next appointment. His liver scan came back perfectly normal, and negative, but the AST ALT and the ALK PHOS had climbed steadily up for a few yrs, it took me to get the appointment to the GI doctor. then seeing my uncle just the night before he slipped into his last coma, a mere 4 days before he passed on.....before he died etc etc. I was on the verge of something, and couldn't decided what..... now he had stopped for 2 months, a huge different man all around. The only thing that bothers me is that he now eats so much ice cream, and that cannot be good. Oh well, one battle at a time. His beer gut has gone way down too. He loves all the veggie meals, every once in a while needs his animal meat too. Like when we go to Hoss's and I get a salad and a baked potato and he gets the salad bar and also a meat dish.
They have a great salad bar with a lot of plain whole foods I can eat and then 2 kinds of vinegar too. At times I bring my own, but I am happy with plain bals. v or the red wine too. Nice spinach and mixed greens there.
So here I am getting slimmer, trimmer and Dh is staying sober, I am happy, so why am I so apprehensive?? I keep thinking that diabetes is his next big medical scare, and he had given up all sweets like the pre -pkgd snack cakes etc and all cakes things, for his glucose count, and then he turns to ice cream daily?? No sense talking to him about it, all I hear back is a big Please, please, in a loud voice. So I don't bother I just wonder when that diabetic snake in the ground will leap up and snag him next. I usually make him a salad daily for his lunch at work, and he brings a raspberry vin. for it. Hey nothing more I can do for him, he is a big boy and will make his own choices... Trying to keep a balance here, and we do have a wedding coming up in May. Going to look so fantastic for it !! I get more compliments for others, jut never from DH... too bad, I think, but that is life,
Peace and Happiness
