I have been a little MIA for a bit. Mostly lost in crochet, but it's summer time so that means fishing trips with hubby, trapesing (sp?) up and down fish banks, swimming with kiddo's, and gardening. Not to mention general yard duties. All in ... Read more
Does cleaning house count toward exercise?
If so, how much?
I ask because my vacuum died a mysterious death (meaning no one in my house knows what happened to it.....I suspect the dust bunnies). Meanwhile I am now sweeping my carpets ... Read more
A little success
I haven't been weighing myself daily, like I am supposed to (I know, my bad) since I just got my new scale yesterday. I checked my weight this morning and according to it I dropped 6 lbs. Now, I figure part of that is due to it being a differe... Read more
Test results are in
Well, after a long wait, my test results are finally back in....No, I don't have a thyroid problem, but my blood sugar level is borderline, so I need to lose the weight and no more sugar. In the meantime, I did an overnight O2 study. I have sl... Read more
Cheap made products
Well, the brand new scale I bought at the beginning of the year died.....I had it a total of 4 months and it no longer works. What happened to making a quality product that would outlast it's warranty?... Read more

Trip to cardiologist
I went to see a cardiologist today. I had been dreading this appointment since it was set up, because I just knew he was going to put me through a stress test. For anyone that doesn't know, a stress test is where they hook you up to the EKG ma... Read more
It's Spring Cleaning Time!
I took a long look around my house the past few days and I have decided that it is Spring cleaning time. I am really trying to get myself motivated to get off my keyster and get started. The only child that still lives with us has disappeared ... Read more
feeling a little better
after a slight adjustment to meds, my weight is going back down....WOOHOO. Now, my back is stiff and feels like it may need to be popped, but I can't get it to pop, so I am achy and don't want to do much....What else.... Read more
well, I wish I could say that I lost some weight....but, I am retaining water around my ankles again and actually gained about 8 lbs in the last week. So, my doc has me taking an extra lasix and call her in the a.m. to let her know if I lost an... Read more
According to my doc, I am supposed to weigh myself every morning to make sure I am not retaining too much fluid again. It is very disheartening to see that even by watching my calories and carbs eaten to be gaining again. I am sure it is fluid... Read more
My journey begins...
For years I have smoked, ate what I wanted, didn't get much for exercise and pretty much resigned myself to the idea that I am always going to be heavy.
A couple of months ago, I started having trouble breathing. I would get winded just ... Read more
