Feeling miserable with all this weight gain and health issues.

I am a 44-year-old mother to two. I never had issues with weight gain until…..I had my second child at the age of 34. After that pregnancy, I kept gaining weight every year. I have been on and off with diets, supplements, medications. Now I have all sorts of health issues that need to be dealt ASAP. High cholesterol, digestive issues, bloating, high sugar, fatty liver, migraines, tension headaches.

I have been a vegetarian for 14 years and for the past 4 years, I have added eggs and more dairy to my diet….Now I have decided to changes things up a bit. During the winter months I will consume lightly cooked vegan foods and during the summer months a more raw based vegan diet.

I will be posting my progress, recipes, and tips.

As of today, I weigh 175 lbs, last month I weighed 166 lbs, that’s about 9 lbs weight gain in one month.

Homemade natural deodorant recipe.

I made my own deodorant and it actually works pretty well, that I will not be going back to store bought deodorants. After a few trials, I have come up with the perfect recipe that works great for me.  I use it in the mornings and lasts all day. I was still dry even during light exercise.

Recipe: Jar, 1 tsp corn starch, .5 tsp baking soda, .5 tsp cold pressed coconut oil &  a few drops of your favorite essential oils.

*Arrowroot powder can be used instead of baking soda

Blend well, to the consistency of dough. Place in the jar and refrigerate. No need to refrigerate daily. I have had this for two weeks and it has not gone bad yet. It leaves no residue as seen in photos below.

Please keep in mind any allergies you may have. Essential oils are concentrated, so please start with just a few drops first, test it and add more if desired.

Feel free to adjust the recipe as needed. Use less baking soda might work better for you, as some might be a bit sensitive to it. Be sure to test it first and make adjustments as needed.
