  • Attention Dog Lovers (need opinions)

    12/11/2019 7:35:39 AM, by SIMPLYME_LORI

    I was in a cab yesterday with my puppy in a carrier going to the vet for her shots. She started softly whinning because she was nervous and probably afraid... the cab driver kept shushing her in a mean, and abrupt voice. Both on the way there and on the way back. What should I have done??? If any... Read more

  • Cholesterol Chronicles

    I’m quickly approaching my cholesterol check up date. Unfortunately, I haven’t lost any weight. I have gained muscle and remained consistent with an exercise regimen that I enjoy.

  • Scale fluctuation

    11/26/2019 11:51:20 PM, by JENNDAVIS25

    It’s disheartening to see that I’ve gained 2.4 lbs back on the scale...I’m telling myself that it’s fat turning into muscle though because I have went down another belt loop...I’ve noticed that I don’t drink near as much water when I am home than I do at work which causes me to be hungry more at hom...

    Follow up at the doctor.. the NA suggested that maybe diabetes was the cause for the sudden blood pressure and suggested the doctor order a A1c. Got it back by the time I was home. 6.0 So now with my HBP I can add a smidge of diabetes. Normal range is 4.0-6.0, so technically I’m still in the “norm... Read more

    11/19/2019 4:42:19 PM, by JENNDAVIS25

    Energy levels are higher on days that I work, but days that I’m off, not so much! I guess because I force myself out of bed and to maintain a routine when I work. I don’t have much reason to get out of bed on off days because there isn’t much that I have to do...I am gonna challenge myself to get up... Read more
