She was born still at full term due to a knot in the umbilical cord. She would have been 6 years old this year, and as the years go by, the waves don't crash as hard, but once in a while, the tide comes in and it knocks me to my knees.

Today was that day. I was good on Monday, usually around her anniversary I am super busy with my now 5 year old little boy, who brought more joy and healing that he will ever know...and my busy and amazing 10 year old....but I take time to remember her, pause in prayer, and talk about her. And every year, I can count on it now...NOONE calls me, texts me, emails me....NOTHING. My husband of course remembers and holds me as I cry, but not even my mom or my mother in law, phone me or anything. Its hurtful, it's like they have totally forgotten about her. She is their grandchild, they celebrate all of the other grandkids but on this ONE DAY a year, I would like a phone call to say, "I miss her" . I want someone to ask me how I'm doing, tell me they wonder what she would be like, what her personality would be like, and just basically support us in our loss through the years.

I'm not sure why I'm posting this here, I just feel that I needed to talk about it and you all are a safe place for me. I've been spot OP since I restarted and I will continue to be. I don't want to eat....I just want to cry.... and wish my family would remember. But then I remember my mantra "If it's to be, it's up to me". No more feeling sorry for myself, I will continue to remember her everyday and celebrate her anniversary. Life does go on, and she left many many blessings for us. The biggest one was to thank God daily for each blessing and enjoy life. And that is why IP is saving my life, so I can enjoy and LIVE!

Thanks for listening.

Sending hugs and prayers to you.

Does anyone know if we can have celery root? I know we can have celery, and we can have some root vegetables such as turnip, I'm just not sure if celery root it okay.

Thank you for the tip.

My usual grocery store, Stop & Shop, has WF on sale 2/$5 through 2/23. The only flavor I really like on my salad is the honey dijon, but they don't stock a lot so I have stopped into the store a few times this week and that flavor is always gone. I didn't want to buy 1 bottle at a time for all of February, so I asked if the store could special order a bunch for me. The produce manager didn't blink when I said I would order at least 10 bottles (I guess I wanted him to take me seriously). He even went in the back and found today's delivery & I bought the entire case. If anyone is curious, the dressing comes 6 bottles to a case. I am happy and even save $6 over the regular price.

Preheat oven to 325. Lightly spray large (9x13) baking pan.

Peel off bruised or ragged layers of cabbage. Cut into 8 wedges. Arrange wedged in baking dish without crowding or won't braise. (sometimes I use 2 pans).
Drizzle 1 tbs olive oil over cabbage, add 1/4 cup chicken stock or water to pan. Sprinkle with s&p. Cover tightly with foil or tight fitting lid and bake in oven 1 hour. Turn the cabbage wedges after 1 hour, wedges may fall part when turned. If needed, add a few tbs of water..should not be dry. Replace foil and return to oven.

Bake 35-45 min longer or until really tender. Serve warm or @ room temp. Yummy!
Thanks! Sounds like something to make on the weekend. I will have to try it.

THIS just goes to show you that IF you stick to it THE POUNDS WILL COME OFF!!!!!
congratulations Wuv, fantastic job.

can you give us an example of what your daily menu looks like? and also do you mind if I ask, do you have issues with constipation on this diet and if so, what do you do to resolve it?

mompattie - I am so sorry for your loss and it breaks my heart to think about how hard that must have been for your family. As Wuv said, you have a little angel looking down on you, shinning down on you from heaven, waiting for the day you will be together again. The loss of a child is the hardest loss and takes great strength to continue on and live life. I admire your strength and am sending prayers your way in hopes it will help comfort you today. God bless you and your little girl.
