I am 56 years old and have been struggling with my weight ALL my life. Sadly, when I was younger I thought I was fat when really, I was healthy. Had I not had such a skewed body image then, I do not believe I would have become so obsessed with weight and food and ended up where I am today. In the 70s as a teenager, I hated my GINORMOUS hips. They were 37 inches and I was 5 feet 7 inches tall. Hah! Youth is so wasted on the young.
"Vegetarian Wannabe" - sometimes I give in to bacon (sigh) and I do eat fish
Loves animals - especially rabbits
Beatles fan and all classic rock and roll
Wanted desperately to go to Woodstock, but was only 12 years old at the time
loves the colors turquoise and aqua - the color of the Caribbean
Thanks for the blog comment. I appreciate the positive encouragement. Staying on track can be difficult after a while, but getting back on track can be just as hard after giving yourself too many "free passes". Hopefully I can get back to where I need to be, and soon!
Last night Gwenny started holding her head to the left, I picked her up and checked her ears, clean as could be, checked her jaw, nothing, teeth were fine, but she seemed tender on her ear and jaw line and above her eye she had a small bit of swelling. She was fine yesterday morning. So I had some pain meds and I gave her a small dose. WOW she went and ate her food and papaya, her greens and then laid down and went to sleep.
This morning she was still holding her head to the side and she would not eat her vanilla wafer (her and Georgie start their day with a vanilla wafer) and about 30 minutes later she laid down and passed away before we could even get her to the vet.
No seizure, not symptoms of real pain (I know they hide it very well though) but it was just from yesterday evening about 6pm to this morning at 9am.
