Two weeks ago, I was down to 237. Then I overdid life on Memorial Day weekend. I pushed myself into a flare and BAM 244 overnight. Inflammation and swelling and just UGH! I am down this week to 243. I am swollen from doing a lot yesterday, but I am moving and going. I am… Continue reading 6.6.2021 Check-in and Musings
Good morning everyone. I didn’t check in last week. I was helping a friend all weekend. I am remaining the same which is fine. I have been in the 240 most of my adult life. So, here is familiar. I am much happier focusing more on wellness than weight loss. Less pressure and internal criticism.… Continue reading 5.23.2021 Check-in…Feeling Happy
So, this week is very much a flaring week, but also a good and productive week. Monday started with a major flare up and my joints swelling.

OMG! I did it! I finally did it. I broke through the 240s! This morning, I stepped on my trusty Renpho and 238.8!!! The mental battle to get here has been so arduous and lengthy. And frustrating.

Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Blessed Ramadan, and Yummy National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day! It is time for my weekly check-in. This week has not been great. After I got home from Death Valley, I got so incredibly ill. Let’s just say, the North and South were having an epic battle. It was a scorched earth… Continue reading Weekly Check-in April 4, 2021
Please, don’t tell me to lighten up about COVID-19. Yes, we can see the light. It is so very tempting to rip off that mask and pretend like everything is normal. It isn’t. And I am not sure when I will ever feel it is. No, I did not contract COVID. I kept isolated. Masked.… Continue reading No, I don’t need to “get back to normal.”
A famous Hobbit adventurer, Bilbo Baggins, once said, “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” No better advice given! And I am a Hobbit that loves a good Adventure. Today was… Continue reading A Hobbit’s Adventure
