Their scales weigh differently than mine, which is nice. They show 5 pounds lighter. I have lost some weight but not much. I had to treat several lows. I have been adjusting my insulin dosage and hopefully that will get... Continue reading

I started on Jenny Craig Monday lunch. We’d faxed a permission form to my Endo on Saturday, they indicated to Jenny Craig that they would return it on Monday morning, so they called and I was able to start. My... Continue reading

So far, even with shipping, Jenny Craig is more expensive. $180 for a week, versus $140. However, I need the structure. Doctor's office gave them the go ahead Monday morning. I think they faxed Jenny Craig in the evening but... Continue reading

First, the people on the Facebook Group are down right snarky. I called one out for cyberbullying Friday. Seems more people complain than encourage or uplift. You try to make things better and you get bullied. While I got some... Continue reading

I agreed to try Diet To Go food for one week after being contacted by them. They sent me 15 free meals. Other than that I’ve been treated just as a regular customer. I’m very pleased with their food and... Continue reading

There is a serious lack of decent hardware in the Mac development world. I tried an old Mac with a regular hard drive/CD combination and it was just too heavy to deal with. It went back to Best Buy and... Continue reading

Cons: The whole shipping thing. However, neighbors are wanting the coolers. Nutrition information isn’t on all the packages. This is a BIG deal for diabetics. Some of the food is difficult to microwave and the directions aren’t clear. Those are... Continue reading

I had Egg Cheese Pesto pizza. I’m usually not good with solid food in the morning, but this worked well. Baked apple as a side which the Facebook group complains about. It liked. My blood sugar has been fairly smooth... Continue reading

Still waiting on DietToGo, but I did get an email that it is coming tomorrow. And I’m over scheduled tomorrow but it will work out. I tried the Nutrosystem food at Walmart. A really nice idea, but I ended up... Continue reading

Dinner tonight was Portabella Lasagna. It was good. It was only 20 carbs and was lasagna accompanied by vegetables. It was very filling and quite good. Easy to eat with the lap band. I've decided to get a second weeks... Continue reading

I had the Eggplant Parmesan which was very good. Easy to eat for this lapband girl. Concerned about the carb count at 45. However the breakfast count was good and my blood sugar has been relatively smooth. It had Eggplant... Continue reading

My Diet to Go food arrived today. The whole shipping process made me nervous. I got a shipping label on Monday. It said the food wouldn't arrive until Thursday. A check through the Facebook reassured me as that was common... Continue reading

I’ve already posted this on Facebook, but to be honest, I feel both a bit inspired and a bit of a fraud. http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/manage-type-2-insulin-16/video-manage-diabetes-kathleen-weaver First, I haven’t been the person with my diabetes under control for a long time. One of... Continue reading

So I'm looking at some other options. Nutrisystem has a plan that is $9.82 a day but you have to commit to 4 weeks. A similar plan for my husband runs $11.25 with the same four week commitment. The nice... Continue reading

I am getting quite impatient for my DietToGo food, probably because I got a shipping notice yesterday and it isn't arriving until Thursday. First I checked Facebook and that is normal and fine. Still something to be aware of. But... Continue reading

Which is a great thing. I’ve slowed down on my rate of doing things, but I think that’s is helping my unstuck status. So the new version of the American Beagle Relief Fund website is up and running. I’ve made... Continue reading

As long as the food tastes as good as mentioned on the Facebook, I’ll probably go with Diet2Go. So I asked about setting up an account, and was directed to the 1-800 number and specifically to Rene. She was pleasant,... Continue reading

I alluded to some health issues. Since the first of the year, with the Texas Teacher Retirement System, I’ve been dealing with and resolving as many health issues as I can. Frankly my husband’s issue was too expensive to use... Continue reading

I went out to to the website - http://diettogo.com/ and went through the initial signup process, but stopped at the actual checkout since it was set up to automatically start Monday and I already have that week coming. That whole... Continue reading

I have been struggling with my weight and at my heaviest for the last two year period. I tend to stay in one scale decade and I”m at the top end. I’ve been looking at how to change things, since... Continue reading

Jamie is doing great. A little over three months old (born last weekend in April). He’s great socially. Only thing he doesn’t like is the elevator at Nordstrom’s. A little trouble with submission urination but that person was really over the top. Skills: goes up and down stairs. Down stairs was the hardest and we still carry him a lot. Will go into a crate when told. Can go in and out the dog door – in was hardest. Will drop things when told. Has stopped biting everyone when he first greets them, but can get nippy when over stimulated.... Continue reading

I got stuck a few months ago. I had been wanting to update the Beagle Rescue Fund site – I wanted it to be modern looking, load fast and work on any device. I had written a great site using... Continue reading

I see the doctor Tuesday and the biggest thing that is bothering me is the dizziness. I have dizziness when I am laying down and when I bend in yoga poses. I feel like I am going to fall. I... Continue reading

Things have not been working right for me lately, so I'm trying some new things. Some are working for me, some aren't. I have been going to Baylor College of Dental and have had some interesting experiences, but they are... Continue reading

Last night, at Macy’s last agility class (which I should post about), I took the whole gang, including Jamie. I had him on leash on one of her tie outs and several times from a distance I called his name. His time, he reacted, and I was able to give him a treat. He also has the hand touch down. I also stack him and go over him each day, though he needs more work on that. I want some of that on cue. He is 12 1/2 weeks now and gets his last set of puppy shots next week. Continue reading
