I just wanted all my friends to know I probably won't be on SP anymore. I've got too many things going on in life to focus on this now.
For now I'm not worried about losing weight, but maintaining it ... Read more
Here, Piggy Piggy!
It baffles me no end that people feel the need to comment on the physical appearance of others in a negative way. Sometimes in a downright rude way.
Haven't they heard of the old addage: If you haven't got anything nice to say, shut your t... Read more
Back Away From The Cookie Jar!
This weekend was not so good. It's not that I ate a lot, but that I ate less than the best. I had a sweet attack and I'm not sure why.
I'm under a lot of stress and I haven't been sleeping well, so maybe that's it?
What I did to is re... Read more

Happy Holidays To YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!
Oh, my goodness! It's been ages since I wrote anything!

That's Not REALLY Exercise...
This morning I got up fifteen minutes early. To exercise.
Anyone who knows me will know just what a massive sacrifice that is. I am so not a morning person. In fact, I’m probably the least morningy non-morning person ever. It usually ta... Read more
Trials and Tribulations
How's that for a dramatic entrace?
Actually it's more like bumps and lumps. But that didn't sound nearly as exciting.
My focus right now is on a) getting over this ear infection and b) lowering my blood pressure. Weight loss is sort ... Read more
Baby Let Me Show Ya How To Do The Samba!

I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts...
For the last week and a half I’ve been experimenting on myself in hopes that I could lower my blood pressure naturally. This has involved a few… unusual new habits.
First is the coconut water I blogged about earlier. I found a brand calle... Read more
The Next Round of Coconut Water's On Me!
Since the GP had no additional helpful ideas about WHY I'm struggling so much to lose weight and her only recommendation on the blood pressure thing was "lose some weight" (Helpful, no?), I've been researching on foods that held to lower high bl... Read more
I'm Normal. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Yeah, I know. It cracked me up, too. Normal. Right.
According to my GP, the test results show my TSH levels at 1.65. In other words, very good. Totally normal. Not even a little out of wack. Also good are my cholesterol levels at 2.8... Read more
Results of the Blood Sucking
So I checked in today with my GP and everything is normal. No diabetes and no hypothyroid. Woot!
I am interested to find out the actual test numbers, though. As my Sparkly Friend MZZCHIEF pointed out, what some GPs consider "normal" numb... Read more
Do You Want To Suck My Blood?
