It's now 2014 so I guess it's time for an update since I'm renewing my weight loss journey after becoming one of "those" people... you know, the ones that drop a bunch of weight and then over time gain it back.

I lost 50 pounds in 2011 by eating healthy foods and working out at the gym. By the end of 2013 I had gained back all but 10 pounds though. Several things lead to the gain... health issues, family health issues, stress, major changes at work, and a whole lot of excuses. I am an emotional eater... I eat when I'm happy or sad or mad or stressed. I also have a tendency to get lazy... because I tend to forget how much better I feel when I'm exercising regularly.

In 2014, I hope to find a better way to deal with stress, etc. so I can lose the weight and keep it off this time!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness which scares us. We ask ourselves - who are we to be brilliant, beautiful, talented, and fabulous? But honestly, who are you to not be so?

~Marianne Williamson

"Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

Glad to hear that your red blood cell counts are all good. That was the reason that I had to have transfusions. Best wishes!

The shampoo/conditioner I use is Cliniderm. It's specifically from Shopper's Drug Mart. It's expensive, but so worth not itching all the time. I hope you can find something that helps.

I stopped using a loofah a couple of years ago. Now I use a scrunchie that has a handle. It's gentle enough for sensitive skin.

It's a pain when the doctors can't pinpoint a specific cause. I know with the psoriasis, I've tried about a dozen different steroid topicals. Some were too strong, some didn't do anything, and a few made me itch. It's really frustrating.
