So I have been swimming now for about 5 weeks. Making great progress! Started out knowing only how to side stroke, tred and doggie paddle. Now I do lap after lap of freestyle and breasstroke! AND it's fun! After not being able to push myself and... Read more

Well almost 3 weeks are in the books now. I am almost 8 pounds lighter. Great, right? Maybe, maybe not. I mean this isn't meant to be a sprint now is it? I have 50 pounds to lose, that's going to take monthes to come off properly. I have been VE... Read more

It occurred to me today, in one of those Oprah light bulb moments that I have very little control in my life right now. I have zero financial control ( but considering my previous spending habits, that's a good thing I think! ) I have no control... Read more

I worked today, and had a late lunch. So I was very hungery when I ate. And I'm a fast eater. Bad combination! I ate two servings of the creamy chicken curry on pita bread. Everything added up to 600 calories! Yikes! ... Read more

I have left a few comments on the message boards looking for someone else on sparkpeople with myasthenia gravis. I thought maybe I'd leave a blog here to see if I can find anyone. It would be so nice to have someone else with MG to talk with.... Read more

Well, I saw my nuerologist today. We are increasing my mestinon. And he suggested I lose some weight. He thinks maybe my persisting fatigue is due to some sleep apnea issues. I told him I've started a diet a week ago and have lost about 1 lb. I ... Read more

To say I feel better wouldn't quite be truthful, but I do see improvement. Using eletric scooter at grocery store is not quite as embarassing as it has been. Starting to figure out how I'm going to live with this disease. Still missing my old li... Read more

I didn't understand anything that the judge or lawyer said-lots of legal talk. But at least it's over for now, and I'm not in jail,lol. Now it's time for a healthy lunch of egg salad sandwich and salad. And, of course water to drink. Tune in nex... Read more

Well, I go to court in one hour. I've never been in court before, except for a speeding ticket once. I'm so nervous. It's not fair that I go to court for something that wasn't even my idea. If I had know for one second that debt negotiation woul... Read more
