Laurie and Kourtney - It's good to "see" you guys!

Jenn - I LOVE a good sauna. I can't wait to have the new house set up and bring my far infrared sauna up. I sure do miss it.

Kourtney - Come here when you can, we understand.

Hi all,

tl;dr - I've had a lot going on, but I am getting on track.

- med change: after being properly diagnosed (finally!) I had a drug that worked very well. However, it made me gain weight, so I tried to go on a different one. That med change failed. Now I'm back on the original drug, doing pretty well mental health wise, and focusing on reducing weight despite the med.

- work: as always, insane. After my current project finally ends, I will be focusing on setting better boundaries.

- marriage - going well :)

- losing weight - I started doing weight watchers on 2/22 and have seen some success (5.9lb down this far). I'm gonna continue on this route for a while. Something about points instead of calories seems to be helping. Also, I'm doing it wth my mom and sister (my mom has had weight problems her entire life, my sister is trying to lose baby weight). Yay support!

Unfortunately, I can't really promise to be around more... but I wanted to check in and let you know that I'm alive :)

xoxo

Hi folks :)

Back to work today and made it to the y. I found the sauna at this y and left feeling nicely refreshed too!

Heather, nice dinner with the family is a great perk of snow days. I made a lamb stew for us yesterday, very tasty

Hi! We got about two feet of snow! It was crazy yesterday. Of course, in this new age, we don't actually get snow days. We can work as long as we have internet connections! So, I worked.

I also had a nice workout, and I was able to make a nice dinner for my family. It was truly wonderful!

I continue to work on my attitude and keeping it positive. I am in control of how I approach things, even when surrounded by negativity. That said, it's hard to be positive forever!! I keep on keeping on!!

Have a FUN and ACTIVE day!!!

We dodged a bullet here in Ohio. It''s cold and we got some snow, but not nearly what they were predicting. Still, the schools are all closed. Not sure what happened elsewhere in the country. Hope everybody''s okay.

Fortunate are you if you love a dog, for that dog will surely love you.

Fly Free my friend.... for only in true freedom can we find our true selves

Treat stressful situations like a dog... If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away!

I figured I better get the thread started since I didn't know if Heather would have power.

It's supposed to be beautiful and warm here again today. I plan to do my beach walk at lunch time. It's just been so nice, like California should be. Hope you easterners are all okay. Drive safely if you have to drive!
