Didn't make my goal...
But I'm ok with it. Because I have a new plan. I bought EA Sports Active 2 for the Wii and I love it so far. I started it 13 days ago and have lost 2 pounds. My new goal is to lose 4 more pounds by Valentine's Day. I'm hoping to lose 8, but... Read more
6 pounds. Can I do it?
I know this is a bad time to be setting a goal, but you gotta start somewhere, right? I decided to try and lose 6 pounds by the 11th of January. That's 3 weeks from now. 6 pounds can't be that hard, right?
Yesterday I felt super out-of-... Read more
4 lbs. gained in 3 weeks...
This is ridiculous. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. There is nothing wrong with my thyroid, I've been trying really hard to eat better the past few weeks...I just don't know.
I went to a 70th birthday party for Paul's wild and fun Un... Read more
It Came in Three, I Hope It's Over!
So I get out of the hospital, and a week later Paul goes in. He gets out, and a week later my dad goes in. (He's fine, it was most likely mild pancreatitis or a passed kidney stone.)
Paul is still struggling with the pericarditis. I'm ... Read more

It's Paul's diagnosis.
Luckily not life-threatening, but serious. It's a viral infection in the fluid sac around the heart. Supposedly you can develop this from a simple pneumoccal virus, or something of the sort. It caused the heart to ... Read more
In the hospital elevator.
Last night, as I left the hospital after visiting Paul, I got on the elevator with a guy who had on a hospital bracelet that looked like the ones they give babies. As the elevator is right next to the maternity ward, I asked him, "Did you just ... Read more
Do any of my Sparkfriends have this or know someone who does? My fiancé Paul has been suffering for weeks now. He has severe swelling in his feet, pain in his legs and elbows. He went to the doctor about a week ago who diagnosed it as gout an... Read more
Yup, it happened to me....
Last Sunday night (the 22nd) I started my prep for my colonoscopy I was to have on Tuesday. Drank the nasty magnesium stuff, suffered through that, started my liquid diet the next day, and then the pain started a... Read more
Ya Gotta Love Meds...
So get this shiz....
My GI dr has me on Librax 3-4 times a day and Omeprazole 2 times a day. I was looking up some info on the Librax and found out some interesting tidbits. One, Librax should not be taken with an acid reducer (i.e. omepr... Read more
I'm finally being honest with myself, and everyone else.
My cute little ticker had shown my weight to be 201. I guess that day was a fluke, because I have been nowhere near that weight since that day. I weighed myself yesterday and it w... Read more
Medical Journey (Part 2)
Let me start out by saying I feel like crap today. My back is killing me from sitting in these damn crap chairs at work all day yesterday, and my stomach already hurts from wearing my new jeans that I thought would fit great when really they do... Read more
My Medical Journey (thus far)
Well, 2 weeks ago I went to my GYN for my yearly visit. My blood pressure was 140/90. It has never been anything but normal, ever. The doctor had the assistant take it again at the end of my visit. It had gone down to 130/80, but is still co... Read more
Since Tuesday I have had pretty significant stomach pain that comes and goes. A little back history--I started seeing a GI doctor the end of last year for what I will simply say as "bathroom issues". I got 2 upper endoscopies and the doctor f... Read more
I decided to step on the scale today just to see where things are. I'm down to 201.5! One week ago I was at 207! I have not budged the scale downward since May 12th when I was 204. Now I am REALLY excited for my 30-Day Shred to get here! Al... Read more
