Who I am

I am a 45 year-old part-time teacher/part-time SAHM. I am married with two adult children - one has just started college, which is a miracle because he has Aspergers. The other is graduating HS in a few months.

I have several freshwater aquariums, two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and two cats. I am a food addict in recovery working the Overeaters Anonymous 12 step program via the AA Big Book. See www.avision4you.info.

I am focused on a whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) diet that is salt, oil, sugar free (SOS-Free). I'm a huge fan of Dr. Mc Dougall, Dr. Greger, and Chef AJ.

My husband in in the military. I teach combined 4th/5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies classes as well as 5th grade Everyday Mathematics.

Passover begins tomorrow night.  We do both seders and will have the same guest both nights.  She is a good friend from our last military assignment a few states away.  We'll be headed back there in July.

this is the first Passover I am going to attempt to do whole-food, plant-based (WFPB)  food only, for myself.  I am doing the Ultimate Weight Loss (UWL) program that Chef AJ runs on a private Facebook group. For more info on Chef AJ, see all her videos on YouTube with recipes and how-to's on how to eat a healthy WFPB food plan. 

I also work a Big Book-Based OA 12-step program.  The alcoholic foods that make up my abstinence are flour and sugar.  The WFPB food program I follow helps me keep that abstinence.  i suffer from lower back and leg pain due to inflammation, as well as stiffness and fatigue, when I eat processed or animal foods.  This week I have eaten some processed foods and used the impending holiday as an excuse.

My 18 year-old son has a tumor on his hypothalamus, right smack in the middle of his brain. The latest MRI showed that it might have grown a tad. I want him to go on a dairy-free diet to limit the tumor's growth. He doesn't want to and hubby won't back me. This is going to be an ongoing issue.

It's true my son is 18 and headed off to college in August, and since he pretty-much only eats dairy and starch, there's not much I can do. I told them both I can't be complicit in him hurting himself. I will not be buying any dairy from now on but my husband will.

I'm trying to keep this from becoming a Resentment. I use a big R because an ongoing resentment can trigger addictive behavior in me. And that can kill me.
