I have learned a lot from Real Appeal. I stop and think and take inventory of my hunger. I measure and I pay attention. My insurance pays for it. I like it because it keeps me accountable. I am still tracking everything I eat and drink. I a... Read more

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. I hurt myself a couple weeks ago. I thought it was the hip. I finally got into the doctor yesterday. Of course his first question was, “did you fall off your horse?”. No I haven’t gotten on JC yet, just a lesson horse... Read more

The surgery went well. He said it was a good thing I did it and it should fix the problem. The tendon tear was about the size of a dime, but there was a lot of calcification he cleaned out. He said that that was probably causing more pain than t... Read more

The bathroom remodel is well underway and should be completed by next week. Once it is done, I am thinking I can move up my hip surgery. I might as well get it over with. The sooner it is done, the sooner I can recuperate, the sooner I can get b... Read more
