Yesterday, a friend emailed me and asked, "How did you lose the weight?" and if I had any advice. She also deals with chronic illness and pain issues. I can honestly say that no, I don't have any advice. All I let anyone know is what I do and what works for me. So, here… Continue reading How did I do this?
Feelin' Sassy YAY! It is Saturday! It is also after 8 pm, and I am just now checking in with everyone. So, instead of drinking coffee and eating breakfast, I am eating roasted Brussels Sprouts, cauliflower, potato, zucchini, bell pepper, and fennel for dinner.

So, this week was pretty amazing. First, the biggest news of all, yes, I am still talking about my A1C. It is down to 5.7. I am seeing my doctor on Monday. I am hoping that I go off meds. There are some trouble spots in my labs. You can read all about it here… Continue reading 8.29.2020 Check-in
So, Monday morning, I had my blood work done to evaluate my health. I got the results last night. I posted a brief synopsis on FB but decided to write something a little more in-depth. Overall, I am pleased with how my health is improving. And really, these are the number that count, far more… Continue reading The Labs are In!
Yesterday was actually far busier than I expected. I was up at 5 and walked the four-mile route. It is sweltering, and we are getting some humidity. So, I was exhausted by the time I was finished.

So, I also crossed the 50-pound mark again. I have 10.8 pounds left to get me where I was. I… Continue reading Going Down…
After over a week of feeling like death from sheer fatigue, I am finally feeling somewhat better. When I say fatigue, I don't mean I am tired. Getting more sleep will not help. Fatigue is a symptom of an auto-immune issue. I did, at one point, get a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.… Continue reading Feeling better…sorta
Well, YAY! for me. I lurched myself out of bed this morning, and I walked. Sunday is one of my built-in rest days. Most weeks, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, are much shorter walks about 2.5 miles. Most of the time, I also do some arm weights; however, about halfway around the trail, I had to… Continue reading 51 and still Adulting
8.15.2020 268.2 Poundsand Hazel with a disapproving glare. This week was dismal with a few nice points but overall dismal. As you can see from the captioned photo, I gained 7 pounds. I am at 268.2.
