    Finally had my appt today. Dr. is doing some blood work and I have to wait for the results. After a long talk about my symptoms, he feels there are some medical issues that could be stopping my progress. I have another appt in 2 weeks with a sleep specialist and by then my blood work should be b... Read more

  • Nearly two years sober.

    I quit drinking two years ago, largely influenced by my Dad's experience with alcohol. He wasn't what one would call abusive.

    take off 32 lbs. I would love to leave the category of obese, just to be overweight once more. That would be 246 lbs, for a BMI of 29.9. I do think I've probably made as many adjustments to what I eat than I will. So now, I will be once again looking into exercise for my health. If it leads to w... Read more
