I haven't updated here in a bit but I haven't given up. My stomach problems wound up being a partial intestinal blockage caused by a new medicine I was taking. I'm on treatment for it but it's slow going and awful. :( No progress on my wei... Read more

Weigh in day! Yay! I'm excited to report that I am down 1.1 pounds this week, to 170.2! This has been a somewhat rough week physically, though. I started off with power walks that went really well and included a little jogging. Three days in I ... Read more

I've really regrouped since weigh-in day and I've started putting in much more effort during my walks. I've been moving a lot more briskly despite this heat. I'm starting to figure out what my body can handle. It's tough finding that sweet spot ... Read more

My surgery to put in a power port waa rougher than expected. I spent three days on the couch (per my doctor's orders) and last night I went on my first walk since the surgery. It was really short (only about 1200 steps according to my pedometer)... Read more

About a week ago my husband and me bought passes at the local rec center for the pool for a month. It is open until 8:30 most nights, so this has been a great way to get in a bit more activity indoors when it is too stormy (we get a lot of light... Read more

No weigh in this week, thanks to TOM. But I did have a pretty good week. Thursdays are grocery nights in this house and I didn't need to use my wheelchair at all this week. I do admit, that I did have a very hard time in the last store and nee... Read more

I have no idea when the last time I managed that all at once was. Definitely not within the last year. After I got my infusion Saturday morning I had so much energy that I walked with my husband. We thought I would walk down one or two streets a... Read more
