Back in Control… Somewhat

The weekend was challenging, but I started to get back on track, as best I could, given my plans. I guess I technically didn't have to eat that Movie Theatre Popcorn over the weekend; regardless, I've had three "good" days in a row (good meaning less than 50g of net carbs). My weight has recovered, … Continue reading Back in Control… Somewhat

Feeling Disappointed…

Blood Work and Gemonics

After continuing to struggle with my digestive issues and getting no where with my doctor, I decided to order some blood work in the beginning of May.  I found a couple of sites where patients can order their own blood tests.  The best value was through HEB grocery store and it's called Ulta Lab Tests. … Continue reading Blood Work and Gemonics
