So we have a confirmation of Nate's diagnosis. Asthma. We have a good Dr who did give us a good starter plan with an inhaler, steroids, and a nebulizer.
The problem is I am Terrified. I knew a girl in grade school whose dad died from an asthma ... Read more
My son is home
My son is home. Thank God.
We took him to the ER because he was sick and not breathing well. We have a family history of asthma, and we were 90% sure that he had it. We took him in at 1 am, and at 7, after 4 nebulous treatments, they dec... Read more

So I did my measurements today. I am really disappointed in myself today. Almost every area went up, with the exception of 2 of them. This is the first time in a while this has happened. I wasn't shocked, as one of my reclaimed pair of ... Read more
Week 2 of my challenge
I did my weigh in today. It's stuck. I haven't gained, which is great. My fitness is still on track, which is probably why I haven't gained. My calories aren't so great. I have been feeling too constricted in my eating. I'm tired of track... Read more
Three has less calories than 4
I had to remind myself of this today. I did great through breakfast and lunch. Even at Starbucks. I had 400 calories left till my low end. We had fish sticks and tater tots for supper. And just like that, I was over. :(
So I had a piece of choco... Read more
We celebrate St Nicholas Day. With the stockings comes Chocolate. A LOT of it! And it is hard to resist. I haven't done too well with it. But I have noticed that when I indulge, I crash. I mean, yes, I knew there was a sugar crash after awhile, ... Read more
I had a great weekend. My family went to a friend's son's 2nd birthday yesterday, and we had a wonderful time. The boys were well behaved, and enjoyed their friend's company. The food was delicious. I could have made better choices though. ... Read more
My scale played a horrible, nasty, awful joke on me this morning.
So I weighed myself in the afternoon yesterday. I usually do this the day before weigh in day. That weight was 226. So today, my new weigh-in day, (It changed because of the requirements of the Scarlet Dragons group) I got on my newish scale.... Read more

So I mentioned a week ago or so, I was pulling out my fall clothes, and I was hoping they'd be too big. Some people wanted me to report, so here ya go.

I had a great Thanksgiving. Spent time with my family and my best friend. Had a great meal, and a few too many treats. I was over by about 700. Not awf... Read more
I did my weigh in today. I went down .6 to 224.0. I did the 5% challenge this fall, and it helped kick me out of my rut, finally. I had been waffling between 228 and 232 for months. The idea was we had 10 weeks to loose 5% of our body weight... Read more
My abs are sore! I'm working on really keeping good posture, and that requires my abs. They are sore! But it's a good sore. I have been hitting my 10,000 steps most days of the week. The days I don't, I'm getting in at least 4,000. But Tues... Read more
A good day & 5% Challenge
I'm really tired, but I had a pretty good day, so I thought I'd share.
Some of you may remember that I had been stuck yo-yoing between 232 and 228. So in an effort to snap out of this, I joined the fall 5% challenge. The goal was within ... Read more
