I've been pretty busy with my daughter lately, but managing my weight well.
It had been 5 years, so I finally got around to taking a physical. Nothing was immediately obvious, but I had a sleep study and blood test ordered.
It was pretty obvious that I needed a CPAP machine. It was a bit disappointing, as I thought it was related to weight.
Blood test came back with hdl of 35 which is low and ldl of 128 which is high. Need to increase my exercise and improve my diet. So I guess I'm back for a while.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend! I can't wait to have the wedding be here and over with so we can have some fun. I'm trying to make it fun along the way but sometimes a vent is necessary. Too much stuff to think about and debate. We spent 3 hours last night deciding on gifts for the groomsmen and ushers! At least it's DONE emoticon (that looks like a going crazy guy, right?)

    haha I know what you mean- when I did the 30 Day Shred I didn't even want to look at the pictures until the 30 days were over :)
    But it turned out well! When I do Making the Cut I'll probably do the same thing- God forbid I not make it through the month and have no results to show off
