Wow! What a week! While the weight loss isn't there. I am up half a pound from last week. The weight ride was a roller coaster. I went down, went up. And here I am. I remain under my previous goal of 261. I am still moving in the right direction, and am 66.4 pounds… Continue reading 9.26.2020 Check-in
Every day when I take my walk, I post a picture of me and a screenshot of the FitBit app to show what I did. It also posts to my FaceBook. I wish everyone a good morning, mention anything of note, and wish everyone a good day. And in my pictures, I usually have a… Continue reading Behind the Smile…
9.12.2020 So, I spent a lot of time debating if I was going to check-in today. I really didn't want to step on the scale. I am very swollen, and I have intestinal issues which I am working to resolve. Then I thought I could post yesterday morning's weight, but that would not be honest.… Continue reading Check-in Day 9.12.2020
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?
I don't feel well today. Truthfully, I feel like crap. Last evening I started to hurt. My lower back and hip were not happy. Then, my ankles, wrists, and elbows began to ache. I did walk my short walk at 5 am. I didn't do my arm workout, and I just wanted to go home.… Continue reading Fighting the Mental Battle
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!
I am thrilled I went for a birthday hike for so many reasons. And I am glad I went alone because the adventure didn't go quite as planned. (When do my adventures ever go as planned?) I didn't finish the whole trail, but I learned a lot. I learned that driving up the Kyle Canyon… Continue reading My Birthday Hike…
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. I made breakfast, blogged, and then I napped. I dropped by to see some friends. We had a… Continue reading Extended Weekend Day 2

This week, I have lost 9.9 of those pounds. I am thrilled to say that I weigh 264.3 pounds today. I am back… Continue reading 8.22.2020 Check-in
