So, this is my second try to blog before the system boots me out - I'll try to keep it short...
Most of you know I was diagnosed with Stage 3 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). It was a shock,but it shouldn't have been. I've been living with t2... Read more
My weekly email to my "Steps" team for the Competition. I wanted to make this more about health than about the "competition." I send them a weekly reminder to enter their steps and I try to make it fun and have all kinds of cartoons and clipart... Read more
Hello fellow cat lovers,

Some of you know, my Louie Boy has had ongoing issues with his skin. Specifically, his fron... Read more
So... it's 14 years to the day that I, along with so many others in NYC, was convinced I would not get home alive. I was sure the whole world was at war and indeed, we were. It took me many hours, but I did eventually make it home to Brooklyn af... Read more
...so at 3am or thereabouts, I woke up and had a moment of lucidity when I remembered that before I took Louie home from the shelter, more than 4 years ago, in addition to being treated for stomach issues and pulling fur out of arms issues, ther... Read more

So . . . here I am, more than 3 years on SP, but 5 weeks into getting serious once again. Since my Dr visit 5 weeks ago,when my a1c was totally off the charts and my weight had skyrocked ... again, but this time into the stratosphere... As of to... Read more
It's been 1 week since my dismal results at the Dr. I fretted and sulked for 1-2 days. Then I got serious. So I'm really considering it only 5 days, not the full week since I've been on track. Here is what I can say... Read more
So I had my Dr appointment yesterday. I knew it would not be good, but as I have been in denial and not even testing my blood sugar levels for months, I was somewhat shocked that my a1c was as high as it was … 10.5. Last time I was tested it w... Read more
So here is the before and after. They may be a bit fuzzy but I hope you can see the difference.
Thanks for all the suggestions! It does seem like it may have filled out a bit starting from the bottom. Maybe it just will take mor... Read more
This is such an invasion of privacy. Some SFriemds have asked why I don't post pics of myself on SP. I take such pains to keep my life private...I'm not even on Facebook...yes it's true....maybe I'm paranoid ... Read more
So, I finally got back on track-joined gym, walking on treadmill to get my body used to it for 2 weeks-eating right-signed up for series of 4 sessions with personal trainer...
Then my 1st session with the "Trainer" Saturday, 1st 5 mins...he... Read more
I received this a little while ago as a comment on my profile photo. I was going to reply when I saw there was no link to a spark page, no way to send a personal reply or any other way to respond other than sending an email from my personal emai... Read more
For months I've been eating horribly and not really exercising. I stopped checking my blood sugar and just buried my head in the sand. Due to life circumstances and the in-actions I just mentioned, I have also been sinking deeper and deeper into... Read more
