Did I mention that Daniel had a problem with his temper when I wrote about his impending visit? He claimed to have gotten a lot better, which I guess meant that he only thought the bad things and didn't mention them that often. Mostly, we had ... Read more
So Far, So Good...

This LCHF plan is working well for me. The calories add up faster with more-than-usual fat, but I really am less hungry and am moving toward just 2 meals a day and not eating after late afternoon. This will be thrown into chaos to some extent ... Read more

No, they don't have anything to do with each other! I recently found a group on Facebook called Banting. I was curious because I knew that a Dr. Banting was the founder of low-carb eating. It was the only way he managed to lose weight, mostly... Read more
Looonnngg Time Since I Did This!

Figured it's easier to put it here and then anyone interested can see it. So I'mm back from my transatlantic and European adventures. It mostly went well, and the parts that didn't are a little too personal (health-wise) to talk about here. I... Read more
But the Weight IS Coming Off!
Monday, February 03, 2014      5 comments

Seems like merely discontinuing my methimazole (at doctor's request) for 3 days resulted in my dropping over 4 pounds since Thursday. I don't know exactly what to attribute the reduced appetite to, since the doc says methimazole shouldn't have ... Read more

I'm just all over the place right now. Still stewing about my endo leaving me over-medicated long enough to throw me from hyper to hypo, thyroid-wise. Does she have any idea how hard it was to get those 15 pounds off that came back with a veng... Read more
My Gut Was Right!

But apparently I did not go far enough by halving my methimazole dose back to what was originally prescribed for me. It was raised after the first set of labs after I got out of the hospital. I've been sleepy much of the time and weight has be... Read more

Like ALL the time! And weight is piling on even though I try to eat reasonably. Right now I'm waiting to go have a fasting blood draw so the endocrinologist can know where I stand for our appt. next week. I don't know why I have to be fasting... Read more
They Sold the Farm!
Thursday, December 26, 2013      5 comments

Or at least it's under contract. The only stumbling block will be if they can't find a way to permit my former apartment after the fact. The buyers definitely want to be able to use all of it. Just when we thought nothing would happen until a... Read more
My Head Feels...Not Good!

Wow, it's been almost a month since I've written anything. Where does the time go? Had a great time on the cruise and especially enjoyed all the trivia. The ships now have pubs for adult trivia (because they give away alcohol to the winners!)... Read more

Here I am, still at the farm and I woke up with severe allergy symptoms. Now, the dust in the apartment has been getting to me a bit, but this is way more intrusive. Patches did deign to sleep at the foot of my bed last night, and I wonder if ... Read more
Need to Take a Breath...

The movers came early yesterday morning, and we got all my furniture and as many boxes as I had packed moved to my townhouse. I'm not even sure I have any clean clothes to put on until I go back to the townhouse and collect stuff from my drawe... Read more

...Nah, not with all that diet-and-exercise stuff that everyone is so concerned about. In fact, I'm a bit up in weight right now and I think I can attribute that to my roller coaster hormone ride thanks to my thyroid's going crazy. Seems to be... Read more
The Trivia Dilemma
Wednesday, October 23, 2013      4 comments

Well, things were going along nicely, with my being able to play twice a week at least lately, since I'd do one might with my old team and one with Guy and his friend Wayne and Wayne's girlfriend. The fact that part of my old team played someti... Read more

...but here I am! I've been freaking out about all the changes around here and just mot feeling like posting much of anything. I'm here amidst everything I own, trying to figure out what to pack and what to dispose of and just how to go about... Read more
