We should learn from our mistakes. However sometimes the past can repeat itself. In my case it did.

I've lost and gained a million times.

However and when I lose again for good will be up to me and only I can make it happen.

I can't give up on me.

    I hate gas and bloating and it is almost as bad as having the diarrhea. I have chronic heart palpitations so I know what you mean. Sometimes they can be quite scary. I assume they cautioned you to avoid all caffeine. If I accidentally get a little bit I suffer and it's in foods and meds.

    I had to change insurance in mid December as my rates had gone from $123 a month to $629 for less coverage. I had a scheduled appointment on January 13th but the new insurance company is a mess and they didn't send a premium bill or insurance cards and I ended up having to cancel my appointment. I have had to pay 2 months of premiums without a bill and finally got my first bill this week. Actually I just opened it and it is not a bill but a welcome letter telling me that if I don't make my first payment I will be dropped. I have made 2 payments and just called them and they received them both. Sigh. With the GOP taking over and planning on getting rid of the Affordable Health Care Act I am waiting to get another appointment as I don't want a huge bill to pay out of pocket if they gut the program.

    It is a shame that they don't get this matter resolved about the raise. Maybe they will give him retroactive pay. Some of them do in instances like this.

    I was reading your info above. Love the Food Network and Property Brothers. I love trying new recipes. Chopped inspires me to be more imaginative with cooking.

    That is fantastic. I had a doctor's appointment on the 13th but we had an ice storm and I didn't get my new insurance cards so I had to cancel it. I have not rescheduled. I'm kind of waiting to see what the current administration does with medical care because I don't want a big bill I can't pay.

    I can also eat chicken, rice, cheese, and a little lettuce with no problems. They are some of the safe foods I eat when I have to be careful.

    I'm getting a new doctor in January too. She only works 2 days a week but she is supposed to be awesome. I'm wondering what to expect from her. I'm lactose intolerant and it is really common.
