Four months later …

Hi! Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I started this blog as a fun project, and it got to the point where forcing myself to post every day wasn’t fun. I was struggling to come up with anything to write about. So, I’m changing things up a bit, and I’ll post when IContinue reading “Four months later …”

Right steps, slow results

Hello, hello, hello. It’s been such a stressful week. It’s been good stress mixed with bad stress, but, unfortunately, there has been more bad stress. A couple people were laid off at work. And guess who gets to do their jobs? The copy desk. And guess who is also getting laid off sometime soon? TheContinue reading “Right steps, slow results”

Busy, busy, busy!

Howdy, folks! I’m so busy today that I almost forgot to write a post. So, this will be short, as I haven’t eaten yet, and I need to take my meds! First, my shoulder is doing MUCH better today. It’s just sore from being so inflamed yesterday. But I can lift my arm again, whichContinue reading “Busy, busy, busy!”

Feeling a bit wiped out

Hello, hello. I’m a bit late today with my blog post. I had a doctor’s appointment with my primary care physician this morning. I had blood taken, so as soon as I got home, I had to eat and take my meds. I was a little light-headed from getting the blood taken. I used toContinue reading “Feeling a bit wiped out”

Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited

Hello! I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow with my primary care physician. And for the first time ever, I am actually looking forward to it. I can’t wait for her to see how much weight I’ve lost. I’m still at 34 pounds, but it’s way less than what I weighed when I saw her inContinue reading “Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited”

Finding the right balance

Howdy, folks. Guess what? I’m stuck on another weight loss plateau. I think that I need to readjust my routine yet again. When I started this in June, I decided to forego lunch and only eat dinner. That worked great for weight loss (and saving money), but apparently it affected my health otherwise. I hadContinue reading “Finding the right balance”

So many benefits of weight loss

Hey, all. I’ve lost more than 30 pounds with diet and exercise over a few months, and I have to say: I feel really great. When I weighed 230 pounds, I had a lot of problems: high blood pressure, my knees were making terrible noises, I had problems sleeping, I felt gross, I got windedContinue reading “So many benefits of weight loss”

Feeling less isolated

Hello! So, one of the reasons I started a blog was to work on changing myself “one petal at a time.” And you know, I wasn’t sure how the blog would go. Would anyone read it? Would I get ridiculed or barraged by insults? My brain usually goes to the worst in “what’s the worstContinue reading “Feeling less isolated”

Food frustrations

Hey, everyone! I am having a fairly good day, though I’m a bit tired because it took me forever to fall asleep last night. My mind was going a mile a minute, likely because yesterday was my first day back at work after a nice, long vacation. So, I did gain two pounds over myContinue reading “Food frustrations”

What’s good for you could be bad for you

Hello! I am crazy late with today’s post, but that’s because I wanted to wait until after my doctor’s appointment concerning my liver and autoimmune condition (GPA). I was way too nervous to write anything earlier. So, I still don’t really have any answers. I have to wait for the results from the bloodwork andContinue reading “What’s good for you could be bad for you”
