Standing Tall: Doing Something Different at Work
Tuesday, November 13, 2018      5 comments

As most know, I broke and displaced my tailbone back in mid-December of last year, and didn't actually have it diagnosed until January 2nd. It was actually shocking (and relieving) when the ER doctor came out and told me that I actually really d... Read more

Monday, November 05, 2018      10 comments

Week 1 is in the books, and I have to say, I'm off to a great start: 8 lbs are gone! Sure, I'm going to rack it up to probably water weight, but the thing is, I was already drinking a lot of water before. What was different? I wasn't sick,... Read more

On October 1, 2018, I fell out of bed after my Boston Terrier got tangled in my CPAP hose and yanked both me and my CPAP machine out of bed and off the nightstand. Since the CPAP machine takes water for its built in humidifier, I fell in a twist... Read more

Ever since the whole issue with the Prozac, I've been in a desperate search for a good night's sleep. The first night without Prozac I slept like a baby, but I also went to the chiropractor that afternoon (like I did just an hour ago). ... Read more
Day 1: The Ugly Truth
Monday, October 29, 2018      16 comments

I decided that after the other night, I needed a "reset" for getting my butt in gear with all of this. I had already gone through my trackers and all, but I had not taken any photos and measurements. So, here they are - the ugly truth: ... Read more
It's not getting me down, but my motivator

Last night, I woke up at 1am with my back screaming at me. So, I got up and did yoga. Oh, the yoga stretches felt wonderful, but one thing stuck out: my belly. It kept getting in the way. Ugh! ... Read more

Well, they finally figured out what was the culprit to all of my physical health problems, and even some emotional and mental. It turns out that I had developed what is called akathisia. Akathisia is a state of agitation, distress, and res... Read more

Saturday night I went to Target to look for one of those body pillows that pregnant women use. I'm not pregnant, but I've been struggling with hip pain while I sleep, and had read that those pillows would help ease the pain by leveling out my hi... Read more

Who did I call? The gym. Why? I didn't want to get to the gym to get bullied. I've mentioned before in a blog how the 3 lane lap pool at the local LA Fitness (that I can see from my driveway) can become a competition to see who can sw... Read more
HRT Cravings
Wednesday, October 10, 2018      3 comments

Ugh! I've been gaining weight and it finally hit me what was happening: my appetite has increased greatly, as have my cravings. Apparently, that is one of the side effects of HRT. But I'm only on estradiol, not progesterone. With the forme... Read more

When I decided to sign up for a kickboxing club, I thought "cardio" kickboxing, like I did back in college. But what I actually wound up signing up for was MMA kickboxing! YIKES! ... Read more

Well, you'll be surprised at this one. I had a therapy session with my psychotherapist this morning, and after posting yesterday's blog, I was open and honest about what I wrote, and my feelings about where I am and how far I've come, or n... Read more
Not Far Enough

I thought I'd take a progress photo today, since my 274 lb photo (my highest weight) was taken professionally at my grandmother's 95th birthday party one year ago this past Sunday. What I saw has made my heart sink. I'm not where I wanted to be.... Read more
Is it true, are they gone?

It has been over a week now since I started on HRT, and I have to say that I'm quite impressed so far. I didn't think I'd notice a difference right away, as they usually say "give it a few weeks" before the benefits are really noticeable. ... Read more
Are US Corporations to Blame
Saturday, September 22, 2018      7 comments

After the past couple of days, where I've been forcefully glued to my laptop without so much of the ability to even grab a bottle of water or a bathroom break, I've begun to really believe that corporate America might be one of the culprits of o... Read more
