Watched two movies that both triggered sadness for me and boy did it make me want to eat. I didn't total my food until today and calorie wise didn't do bad but food choices were not so good. Too many carbs. Very much a carb day. I really need t... Read more

Went to MD for regular annual checkup. I am doing very well and have been losing weight. She is extremely pushy about wanting me to have the weight loss surgery. It really made me angry. I keep telling her I have watched my father, a stroke pati... Read more

Haven't been able to eat much having made myself very sick. I think I am so incredibly intolerant to lactose that it is really bad. Finally, after several days I feel better. I thought it was gaul bladder, but I don't think that is correct. I at... Read more
