Speaking of : #3

Speaking of; #1, #2.


I read the book, and realized I had to do this for my very life.

Then I went online, and researched the kidney diet.  Oh joy, more good news. NOT!

(Seriously, people, where’s that SARCASM font I’m always asking for??)

I had to bite the bullet, and go gluten-free. (Do you realize that means BREAD, (the very essence of life,) and

DOUGHNUTS??? ( the ambrosia of the gods???)

The very foundation of my life!

The very foundation of my life!

And sugar-free.  And salt-free.  And basically anything that made my life worthwhile, free.

So, I did a huge pantry purge.  I felt like my life was over already.

The first 2 days were hell.  I felt sick, had a headache, so tired I couldn’t even get outta bed, tired.

I began to wonder if I’d have any life to worry about.

But then,

as I ate more salads,

potholder 009

and fruits, and vegetables,

and protein, and began to do the “C” word,


funny things began to happen.

I lost weight.

I dropped pants sizes.

My moods stabilized.

I started having more energy.

I gained strength.  After 2 months, no more walker!!

In just 13 weeks, (3 months), I lost 44 lbs!!


My Hope for life came back.

I had less stress, on my body, my joints, and my heart.

I gained a new home, and peace.

My Very First Place, All on my Own!

My Very First Place, All on my Own!

(Which had nothing to do with my new way of eating, just coincidentally came after I changed!)

My IBS cleared up,

AND MY kidney disease was reversed!!!!  God used that book, and my willingness to change, to heal me.  Thank You, God!!!

And I even had More money cuz of the free salads Sweet friend gave me.

And especially the Savings on t.p.!

Now I can finally afford that Ferrari I’ve been wanting!  Just waiting on them to come out with a purple one.  And all because I gave up doughnuts!

  1. I’m so so so pleased to hear you reversed the nasty horrid scary diagnosis. What a huge impact it has had for you. It’s so hard to make such drastic changes, why we need to be scared for our life before making them is a wonder. You’re amazing!!!

  2. Yes to you!!! Your body will get use to the new changes and you will enjoy (like you are already) yourself and life so much better. I am so proud of your determination to stick with it. You should be very proud of yourself too. Now add some walking everyday and you will be having more energy you won’t know what to do with it all. Would love for you to link this up to our Tuesday Talk party, still going on and inspire others with your journey. Well done friend!

  3. What a story of a good recovery, this is. I’m using your miraculous recovery as a point of healing contact to all who have health issues. God certainly wants us being well, so that, like the Purple Lady, we’ll continue to live usefully in a dying world. May the good LORD bless Melinda with the best of all things, the purple ferrari inclusive!
