I’m Back! Another Pocketful of Joy

I took a long hiatus, but I’m back, and with a new direction. 

A lot has changed in my life in the past year, not the least of which was that,  July 19, 2016, hubby and I went vegan. Some of you might remember how sick I have been. 

I lost weight after gastric bypass surgery,  from 268 to 134, but gradually gained back to 240+. Then I began to lose weight inexplicably. I got down to 98 pounds,  and went to a specialist who told me that I was dying of severe malnutrition. He put me on digestive enzymes,  and I was able to gain to about 115, but it was a struggle to keep it on,  and I was still sick.  

Then hubby and I watched the documentary Forks Over Knives,  and decided to go vegan that very night. I’m now able to gain and maintain my weight. And I’m finally getting healthy! 

So,  my new direction is health based. I’m studying to become a master herbalist and a certified aromatherapist. My plan is to post a Wellness Wednesday every week to keep you apprised of my progress, and I still want to continue my Scripture Sunday.  

I hope you will enjoy it,  and perhaps get some benefits from my experiences. 

Is there anything you might want to know,  or want me to post?

  1. ok this is really odd but I was thinking about you LAST NIGHT and that I hadn’t seen any posts from you in a long time!! This morning I started scrolling through my reader and there you were! So glad to see you back and see you looking so good. Glad the Vegan lifestyle is working for you, and you can know you were missed!

  2. Great to see you back, Betty! And good to know you have regained your health. I have been vegetarian for 45+ years and was vegan for about 4 of those years. Then I had a major illness last year and lost my taste for vegan. Go figure, right? So it is back to just vegetarian for me. A master herbalist and aromatherapist??!–I am so excited to hear about that. Sounds like you are doing awesome.
