Since many cannot go out, I thought sharing 2 ingredient recipes would be helpful. Items already in our pantry.

I am sharing a recipe I have made twice so far that I found on YouTube.

Mix softened cream cheese with salsa.

Dip whatever you want! Tortilla chips, vegetables, potato chips, crackers, etc.

I even threw in a can of black beans.

I hope you like.

Next Goal: To get below to 350 pounds. However, below 352 would be a 40 pound weight loss.

emoticon Hi, here. Drop by mwost days. I have another team where I am the only contributor. Being the leader of 2 teams now and the only contributor is really messing with my self esteem.

I don't want to give up and I can't do this alone but I don't like how it is making me feel. It doesn't fel supportive.

So, I found another Christian team that looks to be very active. I hope I can get the support I need there.



I'm not there yet, but I'm closer than I was yersterday.

I'm back. Many of you may remember me sharing that I was facing heart surgery for an aortic valve replacement. Well, I had it done on March 20th. I've been home for nearly a week, and it's been almost 2 weeks since the surgery. I have a follow-up with my surgeon's physician's assistant tomorrow. I think he's going to be pleased. I hardly need pain medication, and it's OTC. Sleep at night is a challenge. I'm told it is. A nurse-friend of mine has had this done, and she said she's not a back sleeper either. She took some Tylenol PM at night. I'm going to ask my PA if I can take that. During the day, I just take Tylenol, and I don't need it every 4 hours either.

I had opportunities to share my faith at the hospital, and I hope I was a good witness, even in how I treated my care team, and having my devotional book and Scripture memorization cards out. One nurse asked me about them. He wasn't being sarcastic, he was genuinely interested. I shared with him what they were and why. I wish I had been "with it" enough to go more in depth, but I did share one of my favorites with him and why it is my favorite.

The care team was amazed at some of the things I was able to do already. I told them what I've done over the past 6 years. They were amazed and wanted to know how I did it. The walking program they sent home with me is going well, so far. When I'm discharged near the end of this month, I'll do a full-fledged cardio-rehab program. That will be a specially designed program using machines, walking, nutrition, and other exercise. If I was already fit, I'll be even more so after that. While I know quite a bit about nutrition, I'm sure there's even more I can learn. Right now, my IBS-C is giving me fits, and I had a bit of a problem with fluid retention. That kept me in the hospital an extra day with treatment. I am continuing that treatment at home. Please continue to pray that's successful, and I don't have a reoccurrence of that. I think as long as I watch my sodium intake and take the medicine (for 2 more days), I'll be alright.
