I'm baaaaack

Monday, October 20, 2014      5 comments

I've been Sparking on and off for about 5 years now. I try different lifestyle plans, most of which aren't successful for me. My body doesn't care about the calories in, calories out adage. It does what it wants. I haven't been on Spark for... Read more

3 months down, 6 to go

Friday, June 28, 2013      1 comments

Hi all! I haven't been my active Sparky-self lately. I'm trying not to obsess over my weight and what I'm eating. I'm down 10 pounds since I got pregnant. I'm not actively trying to lose weight. I'm not following any specific plan. I... Read more

I'm Pregnant!

Tuesday, June 04, 2013      10 comments

Surprise! I'm just couple days shy of 2 months now. It's kind of hard to keep this kind of news from your Sparkfriends. Now that I've heard a strong heart beat and everything is going well, I figured what better time than now to spill the beans.... Read more

Good News!

Thursday, May 09, 2013      4 comments

My husband spoke with his bio professor at school, who recommended I contact the leading researcher on obesity and metabolic disorders. I wrote him an e-mail, and almost immediately, I got a response, recommending I meet with a doctor in my area... Read more

Oh My...

Today marks day 7 on Metformin. That means I have to increase my dose by 500 mg to total 1000 mg. Next week I have to increase my dose to 1500 mg. This medication is making me really sick. It's embarrassing to have to run to the bathroom e... Read more

So, is my doctor wrong?

Wednesday, May 08, 2013      8 comments

I don't think I have PCOS. My doctor said, "she had no doubt" I have it. I have every doubt. I have low blood pressure. My weight gain has spread evenly throughout my entire body (not just around the abdomen). I don't have male-pattern bald... Read more

Metformin and the Occasional Taco

Monday, May 06, 2013      4 comments

I think I may have lost 2 pounds since I started Metformin on Thursday. It may just be water weight. I don't know. It's too early to tell. The side effects are not fun. I'm trying to stick it out because it takes a few weeks to acclimate. I'm al... Read more

Lawyered!

Friday, May 03, 2013      3 comments

I usually blog about how terribly unsuccessful I am at getting smaller (losing weight, inches, however you want to characterize it). However, today I'm going to blog about something I did well: I graduated in from law school in 2012 an... Read more

Thursday, May 02, 2013      7 comments

That's how my body thinks math works. I'm not going to bore you with my story- I can't lose weight no matter how hard I try. Read my other blogs if you really want to know details. This morning I woke up early to exercise. I got on the scal... Read more

Today is The Day...

Wednesday, May 01, 2013      6 comments

Today is the day I get to go for more blood work. I'm really excited. I want to be as proactive as possible to figure out what the heck is wrong with me. Fingers crossed the results shed light on the situation. I'm ready for a medical nudge... Read more

Where is My Doctor House????

Tuesday, April 30, 2013      3 comments

5 years since seriously dieting- Up 34.7 lbs (I have about 60 to lose now, instead of that measly 25 I look back on) 4 months since seriously monitoring everything via Sparkpeople for the fourth time or so- Down 5.3 lbs 11 weeks since ... Read more

Living on a Prayer

Tuesday, April 23, 2013      3 comments

Ok, let's state the obvious before I get into this blog entry- I am obsessive. It's kind of ridiculous. When I want something, I'm proactive, and I do something about it. I've been this way my whole life. I keep pushing myself past limits I... Read more

My Doctor is Stumped

Tuesday, April 09, 2013      10 comments

I just got back from the DR who suggested I go low carb. I gave her my food log. They checked my urine, and of course I was in ketosis. Duh- I have been nearly every day since I started two months ago. Initially, she tried to tell me I was eatin... Read more

I chickened out. This is close to rock bottom.

I was supposed to go to a friend's birthday party. I haven't seen most of these people since about 60 pounds ago this past june. I don't live near them, so I drove out straight from work. I got to their neighborhood about 3 hours early and kille... Read more
