    Thank you for reading my blog, I really appreciate it.
    No matter what advice we are given, how it is presented or by whom, we must be ready to do the work or change will not happen. "Repeat AHA moments" do happen and we must get right back to doing what it takes.

    It's Friday once again! While recently shopping to renew my medical insurance just before the holidays, I had this thought . . . Insurance and hospital gowns have a lot in common; you're not really covered as much as you think you are.

    Also, I recently heard there's a new kind of flu going around. It's called the Amish Flu. First you get a little hoarse, and then you get a little buggy.

    My neighbor who's a nurse told me that the other day, she went into a patient's room to check his vitals, and saw an apple on the bedstand. As she was taking his pulse she remarked, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." He replied, "You know, you're right. I haven't seen a doctor in three days!"

    When I stepped on the scale at the doctor's office, I was surprised to see I gained a few pound, and weighed 144 pounds.
    Offhandedly I turned to the nurses aide as she was ready to enter it into my chart, winked, and said, "Why don't you just take off that last four?"
    Several minutes later my doctor came in, flipped open my chart and said, "I see you've lost weight. You're down to 14 pounds!"

    Another neighbor's son is in medical school and needed to decide on his medical specialty.
    Even though he had excelled in all his anatomy, biology, and physiology courses he had
    decided he didn't like surgery. His advisor simply replied "Suture self."

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Thank you for reading my blog about “My 600 pound life”
    The personal stories and observations shared were very helpful to me and I’m sure to others as well. However, it is very unsettling to watch which is why I've only viewed a few episodes and fast forwarded through the most disturbing parts.

    Thank you for reading my blog “Later Never Comes”
    I was in a place where “later” was threatening to turn into “why bother” or even “never.” Yes, even after 11 years of maintenance, advice, encouragement and support are necessary and much appreciated.
