Thursday, May 01, 2008      1 comments

Got good news, finally RE the surgical process. I am all set for the upper endoscopy on Friday morning. I also have the name and number for the psychiatrist who will do my psych eval. I go back to my doctor in a couple weeks and will get the ref... Read more

Ranting about the process

Thursday, April 03, 2008      3 comments

Got a call from my pulmonologist office today. Seems there isn't an appointment available until July. Are they kidding me? I really wanted to have all the testing done by the end of May so everything could be submitted to the insurance company a... Read more

Doctor Appointments

Thursday, March 20, 2008      2 comments

I met with the gastroenterologist yesterday. He basically explained the upper endoscopy procedure and h-pylori biopsy to me. His nurse scheduled it and then called me later to say I couldn't have it done in the surgical center but had to have it... Read more

Here it is an entire month later. Where has the time gone? How do I manage to forget to post here? I guess it's just I've had a lot on my mind. The anniversary of my mom passing is just nine days away. This time of year always plays havoc on me.... Read more

Stupid Scale

Sunday, February 03, 2008      4 comments

So I weighed yesterday and find that I am once again back up to 411. I don't understand it as I ate pretty well and moved more than usual. I did do a lot of shoveling snow and perhaps therein lays the explanation. Muscle tears and retention of w... Read more

Time Flies

Tuesday, January 29, 2008      3 comments

I didn't realize it has been so long since I did an update here. I am still bouncing up and down 395-410 lbs. It's frustrating. I went to my monthly doctor appointment and will meet with a team of bariatric specialists. I didn't even know my loc... Read more

The ugly truth

Saturday, January 05, 2008      8 comments

So I finally weighed in this morning and the ugly truth is that in just two months I've managed to pack back on 20 pounds. What in the heck is wrong with me?! I've been here before and I don't want to go back. I have to get a grip on this. ... Read more

Getting back on track

Thursday, January 03, 2008      3 comments

I am ready to get back at it. I cannot believe I let an entire year (actually two now) go by without doing anything about all this fat. It really saddens me to be no further than I was at the end of 2005. It makes me feel like a big fat failure.... Read more

More Exercise

Friday, December 07, 2007      2 comments

No fitness center yesterday. I did loads of walking at three local superstores and the local dollar store. My knees were screaming and I figured I got enough exercise with all the walking. It was a good day and I was happy with the walking I did... Read more

UMPH! That's the sound of me as I shoveled snow this morning. First, I spent about ten minutes shoveling off the walk at work. Then when it was time for me to come home, I had to clear off my car and then dig it out from the darned snowplo... Read more

So yesterday the hubby went to our rental office and got a key for the fitness center. It is located in the building right next to our apartment. We went and checked it out last night. They have three treadmills, two ellipticals, a bike, and a s... Read more

Why does my first thought out of bed in the morning revolve around food? Why is it that I finish a meal and am already thinking about what the next one will be? Why must I be fixated on food all the time? I'm so tired of thinking about fo... Read more

What I'm thankful for ...

Thursday, November 08, 2007      2 comments

In my private Sparkpeople group, I posted a vow to be thankful each and every day for something this month. I tend to complain a lot about what I don't have that I WANT. I have what I NEED and want to be satisfied with that. It isn't that I thin... Read more

Frustration has set in. I am so tired of losing 3-5 pounds and then bouncing up and down forever. The Meridia did help me to drop 12 pounds and get below 400 pounds. Since then I've been bouncing up and down 395-399. I guess I should be happy I'... Read more

It Seems to be Working

Tuesday, October 16, 2007      2 comments

So last night work was crazy. Suffice it to say that there's going to be legal issues (and no I'm not in trouble) and some stress coming my way. It has to be and that's about all I can as I never know when someone will stumble upon this blog and... Read more
