I'm attempting yet another diet... I've battled my weight all my life. I've even went to the extreme of Gastric Bypass surgery and kept my weight off for 8 years. However, recently I have put back on 40 to 50 pounds. I am also a sufferer of fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. I have migraines and sinus issues. You name it I got it basically. In doing a little research I have concluded I need to give up all sugar and yeast. Research has shown that sugar and yeast cause flare ups in Fibro patients and I am to a point where I will try anything to feel better. Sugar and yeast causes the body to have an over growth of yeast and causes chronic infections. Tomorrow I begin this diet and am sure it will be tough. Currently I live on a diet of green tea, an occasional soda, chocolate, Starbucks, bread and breaded meats. I expect a week or so of misery as I detox from everything I love to eat. If giving up sugar and yeast help with the medical issues I have it will be so worth it and if I can lose some weight in the process this will be great to. I would love to hear from others who suffer from yeast over growth issues. I need advice on diet changes and a little encouragement never hurts either. I'll keep posting my progress.

- I have varied interests from target shooting, music, art history to politics and volunteering. I enjoy spending most of my time learing how to cook, doing crafts and generally just enjoying life. I love hanging out with my family, friends and two dogs. I like all kinds of arts & crafts, music and recipes even though I am very un-crafty, un-talented and un-domesticated. But in my defense I do try. I like some outdoor activities like 4-wheelin and target shooting. The things to know about me is that I am addicted to Starbucks and Diet Green Tea. I am a hopeless romantic and am crazy about a man named Jody (I think I might marry this man someday) and I take lots and lots of pictures. I am hoping to incorporate a little bit of everything that makes me... well, ME into my site. Please feel free to leave comments and feedback or even follow my blog if you'd like. I do hope you enjoy the page and stop back by often.
