There is always love within and around us. This love sees us as whole, complete and perfect. It flows freely to us and through us, without conditions, expectations or agenda. May you open your heart to this love. - Alexandra Domelle
So many wonderful opportunities have come my way on this weight-loss journey, but I am extremely honored to have been asked to participate in this symposium organized by my fellow St Michael's All Girls' High School Alumn, Dr. Angel Schaffer, MD.
Losing and maintaining weight is much more than physical. Gaining most of my weight after the loss of my Deddy confirmed that for me. This symposium will give me a chance to explore the mental side of it all.
So blessed to have this opportunity!
Ladies that are local please come out! You won't regret it! 💗
When you're ready to quit...DON'T. You'll thank yourself later.
My heart ❤️. 13 years old and he’s finally able to eat table food. Finally, he’s outgrown some of his food allergies, so we can introduce table food to him. He thought he’d be able to eat a hamburger, but he’s still allergic to beef. But he can have turkey and chicken. He’s still allergic to milk as well, so I’m introducing him to a plant based milk, Hemp milk. Now, he can have white and sweet potatoes, eggs (thank you!!!!), salmon, string beans, carrots, cod, broccoli and wheat (which I’m a little leary if). But God!!🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽. Next challenge, teaching him how to chew. He’s never chewed food before and actually swallowed. I’ve prayed so long and will continue to pray🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽. Never give up hope. Food allergies are a challenge and can be a matter of life and death. This Friday, he has his endoscopy as he has a diagnosis Eosinophilic Esophagitis. Little pockets in his esophagus (food could get lodged in the pockets). He has an amazing team of doctors that I’ll forever be grateful to! He’s scared to eat...he thinks he’s gonna die😩😩😩. Patience grasshopper. It was a kick in our butts because our insurance won’t cover his milk (change in insurance plans) and it’s quite expensive; so, buddy, we gotta learn how to eat!!!🥗🍣🥓🥩🍳. Furthermore, he’s below the 5th percentile in weight and height because of his lengthy list of food allergies (failure to thrive). This is our story and we’ll continue our journey. What I will tell you is that this is a happy kid and I am beyond blessed to be his mom❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. I’m the lucky one. #prayersfordylan#foodallergiessuck#foodallergies#albinism#abbottnutrition#childrenshealthcareofatlanta#oprahmagazine#droz
