I've decided maybe I need to try to take a different approach to re-losing the weight I've re-gained in the past year. I keep comparing my now self with the self I was at the END of my weight loss journey of two years ago. That's they self who... Read more

I never thought I would say this: but I MISS those steroids. I have forgotten after three months of steroids, how MUCH PAIN I was in. And in fact I'm in even more now because my shoulders have really deteriorated during this time. I'm going t... Read more

Yesterday and today were the first days in a LONG time (since I went into the hospital two months ago) that i haven't eaten way too much. I've been on steroids ever since then and have been told I will need to take them for the rest of my life ... Read more

Today I was psyched to work out. I had worked up a nice sweat yesterday and was looking forward to doing it again today. I thought maybe I would try the treadmill rather than the recumbent bike for a change. I did my nebulizer treatment fo... Read more

Yesterday I'd written a long blog for Spark...was just wrapping it up and the cyberdevils got it and carried it off to cyberspace, never to be found again. SO this time I'll try to be careful NOT to do whatever it was that I did yesterday to lo... Read more

For the first year that I was at Spark I 'hung out' with the People with Disabilities group and then for a while I wandered amongst my teams and now Living with RAD is the place I call "home." And it really has become a "home." There are less ... Read more
A Review of the SparkPeople Cookbook

Just a word up front: Spark People has not solicited this review (nor do they even know about it)...I wanted to talk about the Spark Cookbook here. Just to let you know that I am married to the world's pickiest eaters. He has a list of things... Read more

So my morning thus far (better said as "moaning" as in "Good Moaning to ya!") has been comprised of - you guessed it - out loud moaning because every inch of me, particularly my back, is killing me this morning. It's another gray , damp, cold ... Read more

Wednesday, February 29, 2012      8 comments

Well, I just weighed and measured myself to have the closing info for the month. It's been a disastrous month weight-wise (and inch-wise)...I'm not positive about how much weight I've gained during my two weeks on IV steroids and another 3 week... Read more

It's 3:00 a.m. "time to write the blogs"(blogs are lower in calories than are donuts). And jokes after 1a.m. tend to be lame so mea culpa. I read advice the other day that said we should always begin a blog in the middle because how can yo... Read more

I just woke up this morning....and weighed and measured myself as I'd promised myself I would yesterday. Here's the "SKINNY" (don't you LOVE a good euphemism???) I have gained 15 pounds since my last weigh in. I now am officially 200 lbs... Read more

This morning I was having none of it. NO, "you poor baby''s no excuses because the chances of falling were good; no" it's too cold; or I'm too fat." The Time Simply Has come. Time to grab back whatever I can that's salvageable'; it's time ... Read more
