Back when I stopped being able to eat and stopped losing weight with my lap band, I was sent to a cardiologist to prepare for surgery. She found a leaky valve. I saw her in July, started Profile in December,... Continue reading

It's only been two days on Performance, but the scale is moving in the correct direction. Being on the Reboot/Reduce plan and doing 90 minutes of exercise a day was just too hard. My coach was encouraging and felt that... Continue reading

I've spent the last few weeks frustrated. Mostly because my medical team and my weight loss team don't get how much I exercise. The straw that hit the camel's back is when my Profile coach mentioned in the meeting recap,... Continue reading

I have joined a new gym — literally new — it’s only been open for a few months and they are still missing some of the equipment that they have ordered. It’s at https://www.instagram.com/p/CY9fiszhq4m/ I do at least 20 minutes... Continue reading

I think the only people who do get how much I work out is the owner of my gym and my personal trainer but then they are there when I do it. I think that my medical team doesn't get... Continue reading

Man, you have to watch out. I do clinical trials as often as possible. It helps everyone else. If we don't do clinical trials we won't have new technology. I'm currently enrolled in the Pfizer Covid clinical trial and it's... Continue reading

Summer is in heat and wasn't much into it, but I did get some courses our of her. Obi was great! First time on a different set of weaves, took a few times but I got him to weave. Best though -- we ran some nice courses together -- and by run, I ran a few steps! Nice progress. Especially for the first class of the year. Continue reading

This was my second visit with a new provider. She's very young. My previous primary care doctor was great, but he has gone to a concierge practice. I have a feeling that's not allowed by my plan. My biggest question... Continue reading

I saw my endochronolist yesterday. My A1C was up, but I attribute that to cortisone shots, I forgot to tell her that... darn. Anyway, we added Farxigo, which I picked up and took one this morning. CVS is running a... Continue reading

It's interesting but I didn't feel the same during the Dallas Show. However, the Dallas Show is indoors, cement / tiled floor. Glen Rose is dirt, where livestock has been. There is a huge steep ramp to get into the... Continue reading

I entered Glen Rose, which is 90 minutes from the house, and was going to stay in a hotel room across the street from the show site. I started stressing out about packing the car, getting ready, etc. and I... Continue reading

I bought it from the Apple Store, but it's also available on their website: LogicTech Video Doorbell I had Milestone Electric install it. We also needed a new chime. What I like about it, is that the camera footage is... Continue reading

Had to get my labs done this morning for my upcoming medical appointments. They scheduled for 8:15 am, which is a bit earlier than I like. No time for blogging first, and no time for work. I went ahead and... Continue reading

The most interesting thing I've done in the last two years is to participate in the Pfizer clinical trial. When covid started, I signed up for just about every clinical trial you can think of. For example, I had to... Continue reading

We have expanded, and now have a group of supervisors. Since I've never had a supervisory role, I'm still "just" an instructor. But I am the person they use when they need to replace an instructor. Partly because I teach... Continue reading

I've come full circle... I started out with Metforum, almost 20 years ago, which appeared to be a random number generator. That was VERY frustrating. I moved to insulin -- multiple daily injections, but kept having problems with lows. I... Continue reading

First, I have always felt being pressured into bariatric surgery, and lap band surgery to begin with. I had gone to my doctor and asked for permission to do Jenny Craig. He wouldn't give it. Come to find out the... Continue reading
