So I've convinced my daughters and my husband to go on a walk with me this afternoon. I'm thrilled! My husband works so much of the time that we never get to do things together any more, so this will be good for us in more ways than one.... Read more
Doing this with Hashimoto's disease is just weird

I slept most of yesterday, and I hardly got out of bed even when I was awake. Maybe I needed rest. But I've lost weight since Wednesday because my metabolism is elevated again. I should remember that an elevated heart rate means an elevated ... Read more

Yesterday my heart was giving me trouble all day, and after I took a walk it was worse for over an hour. So today I'm doubling up on my heart medication, I'm not exercising except for maybe a few gentle stretches, and I'm meditating, reading, a... Read more
Can't stop fighting, can't afford therapy

I fought with my husband last night and this morning, and even though we made up before he went to work, my heart is still doing painful palpitations. We fight about money, and my daughters and my ex husband. This is normally the kind of thi... Read more

I've been exercising as much as possible, and getting stronger is my number one goal, so the fact that I feel stronger is a big gain. These last three days I've eaten way too much sugar, which I was trying to stop doing, so I'm not happy about... Read more

My parents and sister came for a short visit but by the time they got here Dad was incoherent and he didn't recognize my sister or where he was. We rushed him to the hospital but he was in major distress and it was so horrible to watch. My d... Read more

My sister left me a message last night to tell me our dad is really sick. He has a liver disease, and it's scary. After yesterday's fight with my husband, I was already too stressed, but now it's worse. I made up with my husband, but the und... Read more
I lost six pounds!

It's probably closer to four, since I weighed myself with clothes on in the doctor's office last week and I was quite stitchless when I weighed this morning, but still that's over my goal and nicely gratifying. For this next week, I won't be ... Read more

It's going pretty well so far. I've walked three times and done some stretching, and worked toward getting more healthy. My calories have been on the high side, and I don't have a scale so I can't weigh myself just yet, but I'm trying not ... Read more
Walking by myself
Tuesday, January 17, 2017      4 comments

Today my daughters go back to college, so I have to walk by myself. I'm a little nervous because I always worry about an asthma attack, or something else unpleasant happening if I do something by myself. I have my phone and my inhaler, do ho... Read more
Cornbread and Buttermilk for breakfast
Monday, January 16, 2017      1 comments

Last night I made low fat cornbread to go with low fat chili, and today I got to have it for breakfast. It's one of my favorites, what I think of as a true Oklahoma breakfast. Sometimes I use hot sauce, but today I just poured on the pepper. ... Read more
Feeling whiny today

Over the last four years I've lost a lot of weight because of health problems, which isn't the best way to lose weight, but I didn't have a choice. Five years ago I would have been thrilled to find out how much weight I would lose in the futur... Read more
