It's Me Again, Margaret

Saturday, October 11, 2014      2 comments

Ah yes, I know. I keep saying I'm going to stay on track this time. I'm like a broken record. I seem to keep finding excuses. It's been a few months since I've last posted. I really haven't been on here at all either. So, here's an update. ... Read more

Thyroid Testing

Monday, May 05, 2014      1 comments

I've been a bit worried since I failed my physical for my new job due to my pulse being high *likely* due to my meds, as the NP put it. I emailed my VA doctor and explained the situation, and he told me to come in for lab testing and a holter mo... Read more

Soda Update

Thursday, May 01, 2014      0 comments

Since starting back on Topamax for my migraines this past October, soda has not tasted very good at all to me, so it's made it much easier to break my Dew habit. I do admit to having a couple of slip ups last month, but I have no idea how I mana... Read more

Wake-Up Call

Monday, April 28, 2014      3 comments

Friday was my physical for my job I was supposed to start in a few weeks. My physical determined whether or not I had the job. I had a start date set and everything. But I didn't pass the physical. Why not? My pulse was too high. Not my high blo... Read more

Patience Is NOT My Friend Today

Wednesday, April 23, 2014      4 comments

Monday afternoon, I got a call from the HR guy giving me a conditional job offer. He tells me he needs me to get in for a physical this week, like the following day. So I tell him well I'll need about an hour notice since I'll be driving from wo... Read more

Waiting Game...

Thursday, April 17, 2014      2 comments

So, I think my interview went well yesterday. I met with two supervisors and the police lieutenant. I was so nervous and I hope I didn't fidget too much. The LT started off by telling me a little about the job and then they each took turns askin... Read more

Bundle of Nerves!

Tuesday, April 15, 2014      0 comments

I'm not sure if I'm more nervous or more anxious. Maybe it's both equally. I haven't had a formal job interview in quite some time, yet tomorrow, I have a big one. At the end of February, I applied online for a Communications Officer for a... Read more

Not Feelin' It

Wednesday, April 09, 2014      1 comments

Today has not been a good day. It's one of those days where Migraine has taken over. I'm on meds for them, and they are helping, but I'm still getting the occasional migraine. It just seems like the ones that slip through now are much worse. I'm... Read more

Chocolate? What Chocolate?

Saturday, January 25, 2014      3 comments

I have a confession. I was craving a candy bar yesterday. Like really craving one. I stopped by the gas station on the way home from work to get gas, but didn't go inside. I got home and looked inside the cabinets. I found a box of chocolates th... Read more

I'm Still Here!

Tuesday, January 14, 2014      1 comments

I haven't been checking in here lately, but I'm still hanging in there. I'm happy to say I've been soda free since the last week of October! Woohoo! I'm still working on increasing my water intake and decreasing my sweet tea intake, but it's a s... Read more

Motivational Photo

Wednesday, November 27, 2013      2 comments

I was browsing my list of pages I follow on Facebook that I have grouped as 'Pretty Stuff', and one of those pages had posted a photo that I really liked. Now, I don't follow any pages pertaining to weight loss but I don't recall offhand which p... Read more

Making Progress

Wednesday, November 20, 2013      1 comments

I took a chance and stepped on the scales this morning. I know, probably not the best way to start the day right? Well, It was good! I've lost 10 pounds since starting Topamax, Granted, it's probably the 10 pounds I gained when I was put on Depa... Read more

Topamax Update

Monday, November 18, 2013      0 comments

I am on week 3-1/2 of Topamax and so far I think it's helping with my migraines. I'm still getting them but not daily like I was. Definitely not as severe, knock on wood I didn't just jinx myself. I'm only up to 50 mg per day so far. If you've n... Read more

I have had a few setbacks recently, therefore gaining weight instead of losing, but some were out of my control. I have started seeing a new doctor since starting my... Read more

Missing In Action

Monday, September 16, 2013      0 comments

I'm afraid I haven't been online much lately. Work keeps me pretty much busy most days, and by the time I get home I just don't feel like it. Then add in I'm back in school now, and with the classes only being 8 weeks, that keeps me busy as well... Read more
