  • Miss Crankypants

    7/4/2020 2:57:09 AM, by LESLIELENORE

    I am on a new medication that causes weight gain. Sigh. My doctor and I had to weigh the benefits against the side effects. So far it’s working as intended, so there’s that. On the other hand I have gained 6 pounds in 3 weeks. I was trying to lose that much... not gain it! I know, I know, the scale... Read more

  • Moving... again

    7/3/2020 4:46:45 AM, by LESLIELENORE

    Hopefully this is my last move for a while! I am moving in with my dad. My niece, Tigan, moved to Cleveland where she will be attending law school in the fall. She had moved in with dad after my mom died, because she wanted to spend time with dad. I think it was good for both of them, but now she i... Read more

  • My Medical Dream Team Zoom Chat

    6/16/2020 4:57:08 PM, by OHHHCHELLE

    I'd like to have a Zoom chat with all of my doctors - my PCP, my gastroenterologist, my orthopedist, my ophthalmologist, my dentist... I would find a gynecologist to join us since the last 2 I have moved away from me, and maybe a nutritionist/dietitian, cardiologist, pulmonologist and a dermatologis... Read more

  • Moving once again

    6/9/2020 7:24:09 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    I am definitely moving to dad’s house in a couple of months. I have already started moving stuff. So far it is mostly clothes and books. I am sorting through both clothes and books as I pack and pulling out things that I don’t want or need. I have a pretty big pile of clothes to go to the thrift st... Read more

  • Up with the moon...I mean, the sun

    6/8/2020 8:16:17 AM, by PUMPKIE7

    I wished, I hoped, I prayed, and it happened! I've always known that with my life and schedule, the best time of day for me to work out would be the mornings. The problem is, I'm a bit of a night owl and a bit of a morning person. Meaning I struggle to go to sleep before 11, no matter how t... Read more

  • Getting after it

    6/8/2020 1:00:06 AM, by CWILSON88

    Excuses come in all sizes. My excuses have been cancer is back, not life threatening, but a pain and hassle. My home flooded and I am living in the crazy that is construction and I get an updated kitchen out of it. My work is really crazy busy right now, many extra hours (I am salaried so no OT). Bu...

  • I'm BACK!

    6/7/2020 9:34:40 AM, by PUMPKIE7

    So after a few hours of binge watching Queer Eye and thinking about my goals, I decided to come back to SparkPeople. I didn't realize that 8 years have passed since I was last active on this site! In those 8 years, I fell in love, got married, bought a house in the suburbs, and gained 40 pou... Read more

  • Milestones

    6/6/2020 3:22:25 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    It has been a little over 5 years since my SIL was diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer. They removed part of a lung, and she has been on chemo and did a month of intensive radiation treatments. Five years is a very important milestone for this kind of cancer! She just got a good report from h... Read more

  • I'm depressed but I'm doing okay

    6/5/2020 3:44:21 PM, by OHHHCHELLE

    I'm depressed. I know that depression brings on emotional eating. Emotional eating piles on the calories. Piled on calories causes weight gain. Weight gain is one of the causes of...depression. It's a vicious circle. The last thing I want at the end of the pandemic is to be 20 lbs heavier and d... Read more
