There are a couple things that make me very jealous lately. 1. All I can think about when I see people out jogging is, "I used to be so impressive at that and I used to run long distances, and now I can't - but I swear I could! I swear I'm ... Read more
CT Scan Results
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 2 comments
Quick background: my DHEA-S (some sort of "pre-testosterone" according to the doctor...basically, a male hormone) was really elevated, signaling to my doctor that I might have some kind of adrenal problem - which generally takes the form of a (u... Read more

Okay, so I was being melodramatic and ridiculous the other day when I was feeling worried about being several pounds up from what I thought I ought to be. My weight was, of course, fine the next morning. But today, I'm at work and lo and be... Read more

The only exercise I did today was 45 minutes on the elliptical and my usual strength training routine. I felt bad about that to begin with, since I'm used to either doing a really long run, or having some walks during the day in addition to card... Read more

I mean, I'd already walked 7 miles on breaks today (my lunch consisted of walking to the imaging center where tomorrow's CT will be in order to pick up the contrast medium I have to drink beforehand, and it was a longer walk than I realized). S... Read more
CT scan update and a "rest day"
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 4 comments
I talked to my doctor today, told him that I was panicking after listening to his message, and he apologized and said that usually, if there is a tumor on the adrenal gland, it's benign. He said he wouldn't worry about cancer. So that's good to ... Read more
Scared/crying because I need a CT scan of my adrenals

My doctor just called and left me a voicemail saying the blood work he had done on me showed that something he didn't specify was "elevated" and that I would need to be scheduled for a CT scan of my adrenals. And that's all he explained in the v... Read more

My last lipid panel was done in May 2011, and I don't remember the exact results, but my HDL was kind of low-ish, and my LDL was 120, which was sort of borderline high. It was also 120 the year before, when I was 50 pounds heavier, so my doctor ... Read more

t_people.php That article links to the abstract for a paper proposing a hypothesis for why skinny people find us fat folk unappealing. I'm intrigued. I can kind of see where th... Read more

I've been eating 2300 calories a day and cutting back on running...and I didn't gain weight this past 10 days. In fact...this morning, I weighed in with my lowest weight ever, 117.8 lbs. Ridiculous! And I'm still feeling somewhat uncomfort... Read more

So my doctors have told me to gain weight, my family members have told me to gain weight, the body fat scanner told me to gain weight (11% body fat = BAD), but I've had such a hard time seeing myself as "too skinny." I have all this loose skin o... Read more

State employees are back at work today, which is fine with me since now I have internet access! We still don't have it at home, but of course the state capitol offices have internet so I can get back to sparking on a computer instead of my husba... Read more
