Monday, March 30, 2015      3 comments

MOSTLY... Yes, I did it. I am on decaf coffee except some on the weekend with Joe, but here's the kicker... I GAVE UP SODAS! And still haven't lost a damn pound. But how can I when people keep sticking their hands in my spine & moving it ar... Read more

Friday, February 06, 2015      3 comments

both days I walked 6 laps around my back yard. 1.1 miles each day. I am just starting again, and I have to remind myself of that every few minutes as I obsess about how I used to pull off 4 miles in 80 minutes. So I keep putting myself in my ... Read more

Today I'm 40.

And about 40 pounds away from my goal as well. I looked at my weight tracker & it says I should be 212 today. I think I'm gonna erase that sucker so I don't have to look at it anymore. That graph is defeatist, and I'm better than that... As w... Read more

2 days down...

After walking the past two days, today is a big fat question mark (?)! I may have bit off more than I can chew by starting to shave Jacko. His Sasquatch-side of the family is showing through a bit much, and I've found his undercoat matted in s... Read more

Happy Realization to Start 2015

I just realized that after 2.5 years I have been able to keep 40 pounds off my body. (Insert happy dance here!) Granted, it should have been the 60 originally lost, but I'm not gonna sweat 20 pounds after all the hospital-abuse I've taken this... Read more

So I missed out on a lot this year...

I'm back. Not 100% as I have to remember that I must learn to walk again before I can get up and run, run, run like I'm used to. I do believe I left you in August stating I had my surgery but them had a twinge in my back at dinner on the 29th.... Read more

Hey everyone! I'm baaack. So yesterday's one mile feels like 5 miles to my spine today. I really think it's that walking stick. I know they are great for balance and supporting upright walking, but I think dragging it around is a hindran... Read more

Thursday, August 28, 2014      4 comments

And I'm doing almost great. I hate riding in cars because it hurts like a $%@$^, but I have walked a mile on a few days, a third of a mile on others, and a half mile on a couple. I can walk! I can stand up straight! I can have norma... Read more

Everyday woes...

Well, Joe has been online looking for jobs. It really sucks that there are so many out there that pay nothing, but unemployment barely covers his child support. Who ever decided what the unemployment pay rate is should have to live on that mon... Read more

I finally did it...

I finally fell in love with a man that can handle me. ALL of me & doesn't want me to lose a single pound. But since men know diddly about carrying around extra poundages on the degenerating joints, he's been told that I get to lose at least 45... Read more

My aunt, Adra Dawn Rix Thurman, left this world yesterday afternoon after 45 minutes in the ER. She was a warrior who fought uterine and ovarian cancer for YEARS. A month ago, she kept asking my mother when she was coming to visit her for ... Read more

Well. I have lived through the month of March and things haven't changed much. Shingles spread to my other ear, of course. So the second one is working its way out of me. I've been taking meds every day for the Bell's Palsy... its getting bet... Read more
