I hate to admit that I'm struggling on all fronts this morning. I feel like a blob. I am so ashamed of myself for gaining back all of the 50+ pounds I lost last year. I'm even embarrassed to even show my face at my 30th high school reunion in Au... Read more
Just when I thought things would be getting better, they fall apart. This time...my relationship. As some have already noticed, I have removed the photo of myself and the man I had been dating for 6 months this week. That is because on the exact... Read more
Well, it has been a little over 2 weeks since my surgery and I am home resting. I did have the setback of the week long hospital stay last week for a viral infection, and am noticing that it has had an effect (negative) on my recovery.

How do you handle someone who is very critical of your weight? My grandpa used to nag me continuously about the fact I needed to lose weight, even when I was a firm, fit, toned 145 lb young woman who just had a small "pooch" for a belly.

On Tuesday, June 6, I went into the hospital for a routine hysterectomy. Everything went well, although, it was almost 1am before my stomach settled down and I was able to take oral pain meds, eat, and rest. The first few days at home were restf... Read more
My family lost our beloved family patriarch yesterday morning - my 87 year old grandpa lost his battle with cancer. It was a brief battle, only being diagnosed just this past Christmas. We thought he had conquered it, but it had metastasized thr... Read more
Ugh! The Spring Challenge is over and I gained 8 (yes, 8) lbs instead of losing it. Yes, this past week was the worst, and yes, it was a stressful week. I won't go into the why's of this week, as if you've followed my status updates this week, y... Read more

Here I am, staring down 48 with wild-eyed wonder as I don't feel anywhere near 35. I got this far without ever being married or having children of my own. My brother and sister-in-law swear that it was being present for their youngest son's birt... Read more
Well, I just spent a couple of hours (3 to be exact) in the ER after spending the night in the ER on Sunday night. On Thursday, I woke up feeling pretty normal as any other day, but before I left for work, I had my head over the toilet with a ma... Read more

Today was a fun day and one that did bring a tear or two to my eyes. Today, my cousin, her husband, her best friend, and I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k race. You see, Kim's son used to run the race in honor of his grandma an... Read more
And I'm nailing it!
I've completed 35 minutes on the elliptical each day this weekend after the doctor told me to rest for a couple of days. And I must say that my heel is healing quite nicely. Today was the first day I've been able to wea... Read more
Sunday morning I went to the gym with a renewed determination to prepare for the upcoming Race for the Cure 5k here in Indiana. I've done 5k's before, even without being in shape to do them. So, I wasn't concerned that I wouldn't be able to comp... Read more
