Yes, I'm PROUD.

I can't get enough "fat". Crazy problem.
It's odd that it takes a day of "blowing it" to get enough fat in my diet. I ate much healthier today, but I didn't eat enough fat. I'm wondering if other people have the same problem. I add olive oil and Smart Balance a lot of days and I still ... Read more

I am wearing a pair of jeans that I haven't fit into in over a decade! Over 10 years...and I have no idea what I weigh, because I have yet to buy a scale. Right now, I am weighed once a month at the doctor's office and the next time I go isn't u... Read more
Been a whole week?
I Can't believe I haven't blogged in a week.
It's not a ruptured disk, which is good. I think. I have spinal stenosis. A narrowing of the spine in my lumbar region. Don't remember exactly which disks are involved, but I do know that the road ... Read more
Okay, I had my MRI on Monday, today's Wednesday. My favorite nurse called. "Nothing surgical, a bit of tissue pinching a nerve. She (doc) wants you to have physical therapy."
So, no surgery, an answer to prayer! However, if I said I was thrill... Read more

Been a while.
I had my 8-yr-old grandson, Anthony, from Christmas Eve until the 28th. Didn't plan to have him that long, but his mom got sick, so I gave her a respite. I was fun but very hard. I(and my doctor) are pretty sure I have ruptured at leas... Read more
I've spent the day with Anthony. He's my soon to be 9-yr-old grandson. He said something that made my Christmas. "Grammie Sarah, it's great to spend Christmas with you." Oh how good that made me feel. You see, I have no family that hasn't droppe... Read more
no aerobics today
I'm so very frustrated with my body. I'm able to do some strengthening that doesn't hurt, which is great. I did today. However, I can't walk or do any other exercise that gets my heart pumping right now because my hip is so bad.
The twist in m... Read more
