Still here, or back to start all over again.
December 31, 2011, my grandmother passed away. Since then, I've been busy trying to clean out all the junk she left behind.
I'm not talking about heirlooms or antiques or even keep-sakes. I'm talking about J-U-N-K! She kept everything. ... Read more
Learning to LIVE Each Day.
"May you live every day of your life." - Jonathan Swift
It seems like every day is the same. Get up, wash dishes, do laundry, get groceries, go to doctors' appointments, etc. It's all the same day. It's no wonder it's so hard to rememb... Read more
Stress Journal - First Entry
Stress, what can I say that hasn't already been said?
Okay, so I've got a grandmother who's 88 and has pancreatic cancer. I've got a friend who doesn't get along with my grandmother, and she doesn't like him, either. They both fuss about ... Read more
so get over it.
That's what I keep telling myself, but it doesn't work. I'm still angry and depressed and just plain tired.
I've got a little over a month to go before I get my sleep titration study. (That's where they fit you for ... Read more
Bad Week but...
I still lost weight. I'm down a total of 20 pounds since I started Spark People back in March, a total of 35 pounds since I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes last November.
There was a lot of emotional turmoil this week and I ate things I... Read more
Well, that 17 pounds are gone again!
Last week I started on a medically supervised diet program, Remedy Weightloss. It was either this or surgery. I'm not ready to give up and have the gastric surgery, even though lots of people have had great results from it.
It's a VERY re... Read more
Totally not about losing weight.
Today I had to run a few errands in town. (I live in a very small town and that is a significant piece of information for this rant.)
I went to the court house to pick up some papers for my mother. I parked in the ONLY handicapped spot b... Read more
What are my goals for this month?
I need to get moving. My number one goal is to actually exercise 7 days a week, even if it's just walking. I have set a goal to lose 10 pounds by Halloween. With a lot of work and support, I KNOW I CAN DO IT!
Yesterday I had a lot of thi... Read more
Okay, I give up. There is no way to plan anything. There is no way to predict what life will throw at you!
Last Tuesday I was taking my grandmother to the doctor for a routine visit, just needed him to fill out some paper work. She was f... Read more
Should the Schools Send Parents an "Obesity Report Card?"
I was just watching a segment on The Doctors about schools sending report cards to parents telling them what their child's BMI is and telling the parents that their children are obese.
Would you want that? For those of us who were overwei... Read more
Ready for Fall and Another New Start
I've got to get back to work. I've spent all summer going to doctors and one therapy after another and I just haven't exercised or watched my eating very well. It's time to change that. It's past time.
This week is a new beginning. Ag... Read more
Just a quick list of what is wrong with me.
This is the physical illnesses, not why I am the way I am. I guess there's a difference? lol
Endometrial Hyperplasia, without atypia
Is that enough? S... Read more
Choices, Choices, Choices!
I have to make a very big decision. Do I get yet another D&C, I had one in February, and let them install (?) a Mirena device, OR do I just get a hysterectomy and be done with it?
I have Endometrial Hyperplasia without Atpyia. This basica... Read more
I'm doing better, now.
I got some really good sleep last night, I was able to get up at 5:30 this morning and exercise and get some housework done today.
Now, I'm getting ready to go to bed, but I've decided to update my goals a little. I'm not sure just what I'... Read more
