News from The Perrys
News From Libbi Perry Stuffle, from The Perry's Email Newsletter:
I know, I know it's been a while since I've written! Seems like time just gets away from me, the older I get. :0) We have been so blessed to have a busy schedule this year. We've just returned from a 10 day vacation, which was very much needed! Now, we are full force (Lord willing) until December.
I know everyone is wanting a update on Tracy and how he's progressed since his heart attack and open heart surgery last August. Tracy as of date has lost 97 lbs!!! He has three more go and then he will be in the battle to keep it off. Tracy is regaining his strength back every day. He went to the driving range this week and was pleased with how he did, so now he's ready to hit the golf course! He is off ALL insulin! He takes metformin twice a day. He's been very disciplined about what he eats and that makes my job a lot easier. We do ask those of you that want to bring snacks and food to him on the road, please make sure it is low fat, low carb and low sodium. I know, that it's hard to find stuff that is all three, but it can be done. With summer here, we are love being able to get fresh veggies, so please feel free to bring all the tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, onions, beans, lettuce, sweet potatoes, red bell peppers, and any other veggies you want to get rid of to our bus!! :0) Thanks once again for all of the prayers, cards, letters, emails, texts and love gifts. You will never ever know what each one has meant to us. Please continue to pray for us as we continue on this journey to a better and healthier lifestyle change.
A lot of people have ask what Tracy eats daily, so I have created a Facebook page that shows a lot of his meals with the recipes of how I fixed them. It's found at www.facebook.com/eattolivelibstuffle. We welcome any advice, healthy recipes and we also encourage others. A lot of people like us struggle with being overweight and eating healthy, so here we can all encourage each other!
We are excited to announce that our single "CELEBRATE ME HOME" from our new project "BLUE SKIES" is the #1 song for the month of July in the Singing News Magazine!! This song has already been nominated as SONG OF THE YEAR in Singing News Magazine and the album "BLUE SKIES" has been nominated as ALBUM OF THE YEAR! We have received so many emails, letters and cards about how "CELEBRATE ME HOME" has helped so many who have recently had loved ones to pass away! We've also had to email the song to so many to use during funeral services of their loved ones. Such an encouraging song! You can order the CD "BLUE SKIES" and the sound track to "CELEBRATE ME HOME" now on our website www.perrysministries.com.
