I had delayed getting my labs done, but I finally did so a few days ago. Results are in... on my lowered dose of metformin, I am finally in "normal" range for my a1c! (one of my goals!) Not off the meds just yet, but fingers crossed as I keep re... Read more
On my way

I've been having some insomnia issues due to stress - so much so that the kiddo tends to wake up before I've even fallen asleep. So this morning we took off on a walk. Together, we went about 5 miles in an hour and a half on the greenbelt, just ... Read more

If you hadn't heard - the Northwest was ablaze with red-level air quality during the time of Hurricane Irma. We were safe from the fires, but the smoke seemed to want to treat the Treasure Valley as an open drain pipe. Nearly everyone up he... Read more

It's amazing how much time a kiddo can take up during the summer. Aside from the tween attitude flairs and the outside "drama" - I pretty much only had time to check in and add in my daily walk. I can say at least I'm still dropping. I am 2 poun... Read more
End of school year

I know I haven't written much lately. It's getting to that point in time that the end of the school year is nigh and I'm buzzing around like a mad hen. I still check in daily to add my exercise at the very least. Hope all of you are do... Read more

Well, I didn't get to bike to the appointment (snapped breakline and flooded bike route), didn't get to my goal weight for today, but my doctor was really happy with the progress I did make. He lowered my metformin dose and I also had to ha... Read more

Just checked my labs for my upcoming appointment (so glad this is a possible thing). Last a1c test was 7.1. Doctor wanted my goal to "aim for 6.5". I wanted to do better than that. Test came back at 5.9. According to the chart, that's just .3 aw... Read more

Well, so far this month sucked as far as weight loss goes. I don't know what's up. I really don't feel like eating. I really haven't lost any weight and I haven't gained it either. (well, technically speaking I've lost .25 lbs so TECHNICALLY I'm... Read more
So much for that...

Well, I guess there's no way I'll be reaching part of my goal. May 1st I wanted to ride my bike to my dr's appointment and be 36lbs down. Due to the heavy snow we had this winter, the city has been running the river above 100% to avoid major flo... Read more
I don't like being sick.

I've been sick the past few days. Not sure if it's stress related or spring allergy related but for the past two days I've been nauseated and did... you know... (No, not pregnant. Aunt Flo is giving me that message loud and clear right now.) I'v... Read more

Dunno what to make of it. Started to track my glucose. 1 hr after one of my meals (including a croissant) my reading was 111 (good range for "diabetic"... heck, good range for non diabetic too). Reading 2 hrs after larger dinner including half ... Read more

10 pounds away from my first goal. Seems like it's been a steady 2lb a week loss as my loss line is running nearly parallel with my plotted "goal" line. This may seem a bit odd to most people, but for my "reward", I'll be shaving my hair of... Read more

Well here's a NSV (non-scale victory). My husband comes home and watches me for a minute as I'm moving about the kitchen and then says "I notice your pants are looking a bit too big for you..." I'm wearing the jeans I wrote about a few entr... Read more

I'm still a bit raw from having to put my cat to sleep. My husband picked up a plaster cast of his pawprint from the vet the other day and we both started crying. ... Read more

Another check-in. Another weigh in. I'm still on track (and I think one pound under) towards my first goal of 36 pounds and putting me at 300 pounds for my next doctor's visit. 22 pounds gone. The inches (according to the numbers) seem... Read more
