Weeks 6 and 7 progess report
I've been feeling pretty unwell for the last week, so I haven't really been up to posting here until now.
Plex and I went to the doctor for our physical/medication checks. Good news for me! My cholesterol is all back to normal! Yay! My ... Read more
Week 5 report
This week sees me losing one of the pounds from last week's gain. Woot!
I am motivated. I have logged in every day for over a month. I am posting every day in teams. And then I went and volunteered to be a team leader for one of them.

Week 4 report
Well, I am up 2 pounds, which is not surprising since the body fluctuates by this much daily, but also because I did not take my pill for my lymphedema every single day this week. I had a training session I had to attend and walking out every h... Read more
Week 3 report
Happy to say I am down a total of 10lbs this month! Woot! I am happy with my progress. I was worried I blew it when I had ice cream, but honestly, I am being very conscious of why I am eating this time.
We had 2 days of extremely cold te... Read more
Week 2 bonus edition
So I am currently sitting in the hotel room for the convention that my husband is currently providing demos of our card game at. The venue was changed this year, and it is MUCH smaller than previous years, which makes it CROWDED! And by crowde... Read more
Week 2 progress report
Week 2 has been....interesting. I had a stomach bug, but honestly it didn't really affect my desire for food. I never really want to eat anyway, and it's the forcing of myself to eat on a schedule that I have always struggled with. Even with ... Read more
Week 1 of 2018 in the books
I did pretty ok this first week of January. I lost 3 pounds, and got lectured by my daughter (I guess she decided to be my accountability buddy afterall!). She's not happy with the lack of variety in our meal choices during the week, and let m... Read more
It's freaking freezing, Bigglesworth!
I moved to the Carolinas to get away from brutal cold and snow. I'm happy to say I have no snow, but boy is it cold! They are saying the wind chill is going to be about -5 farenheit in my area. When you are not used to that, it's not pleasant... Read more
2018, here we go!
I was a very naughty girl and didn't take my medication yesterday. Needless to say I am a little swollen today, but that's ok. It's a new year and I am making an effort to get in better health. Please note I did not say shape, as I do not bel... Read more
Life's Simple Joys
I'd like to introduce you all to someone very special to our family. Say hello to Gingersnap, our kitty. She's keeping Boo's chair warm this early morning, as you can see. ... Read more
Well this is not what I expected
It's been a week, in the sense that I wish it hadn't gone the way that it did mostly.
Thursday we had tickets to go see Trans Siberian Orchestra. I came home from work a little early so I could rest before the show. After an hour of resti... Read more
It's that gift giving time of year. I'm one who loves to give to people. For instance, when I stopped at Dunkin Donuts Saturday on my way home from Walmart (really wanted a coffee), I paid for a dozen donuts the woman behind me had ordered. O... Read more
Friday I managed 4 hours out of 10, which is becoming my average. Yesterday, I only managed to hit 2 hours. I admit it, I was lazy yesterday morning...right up until 2pm. I just didn't feel like moving at all! I was tired and feeling run dow... Read more
Challenge Day 4
I didn't get to write a blog for Day 3, as I hit the ground writing yesterday (I can't even say running). I'll explain later.
When I checked to see how I did on day 2 of my personal challenge, I saw that I hit my goal 5 out of the 10 hours... Read more

Challenge Day 2
Yesterday I hit 250 steps only 3 hours out of the 10 hours I have it set up for on my Fitbit. For some reason I just don't feel the reminder vibrations to get up and move, and I had a bit hit me in the afternoon at work. I am, however, glad I ... Read more
