The last few days have been very stressful. My aging mothers health seems to be on a steady decline, and it's worrying me very much. When I saw her walking the other night, I was sure that with every step, she was going to fall and hurt herself ... Read more
Have any of you seen the movie "The incredible shrinking woman" with Lily Tomlin? Well. I kind of feel like that. Instead of shrinking in height, I am shrinking in weight! HOLY COW! There are no words to describe my gratitude for my Bariatric su... Read more
It has been a very busy but productive week. All the drywall is up downstairs, and all but one room has been mudded and taped. Met with the nutritionist last week, and things are still amazing me. In one month, I lost 3.75 inches from my waist. ... Read more
This has been a very interesting week. Although I did lose, I was frustrated with the amount of loss. At this stage of the game, 2-3 pounds a week is normal. However, with all the exercise we got this week, I expected more. You see, we are still... Read more
