Fun appointment. My tricuspid valve isn’t leaking as much as it was last year when I was thinking about weight loss. The cardiologist was patting herself on the back for the improvement. This puzzled me because I couldn’t remember what... Continue reading

I reached a new scale victory today. This weekend I had reached a loss of 95 pounds since I had lapband surgery. 30 pounds since I joined Profile by Sanford. I currently have no fluid in my band. My insulin... Continue reading

I have severe dry eye. So bad, I couldn’t do a full time remote teaching job. At the end of the day, I couldn’t focus enough to drive safely. I had my early visit with my eye doctor and saw... Continue reading

The latest experiment is different. I’ve gone from medformim, to insulin only (70/30) to pumping and now I am doing MDI with rapid insulin and Ozempic. I’ve lost enough weight that I don’t need basal insulin. I need bolus insulin... Continue reading

When I took the job, it was supposed to be part time, and I was supposed to be training other trainers. A couple of weeks in, we got a new person in charge of instructors and that didn’t fit with... Continue reading

I saw my Endocronolist Friday. I've lost about 30 pounds since I started Profile by Sanford. My A1C is down to 6.5 I've gone several days without dosing insulin, and basically had my pump off. She suggested that I set... Continue reading

I'm currently in the process of scrubbing my social media -- just unpublished all the related blog posts and already removed everything from LinkedIn. It was an interesting little side journey and it made me realize just how good I... Continue reading

I just got back from a week trip to visit family. Got to see everyone, including the latest member of the family. It’s rare to visit them without another event going on — usually a dog show. It’s also the... Continue reading

I’ve been a bit stalled, but not too bad, since I had the job. Less sleep, more siting, less moving. Since I don’t think your grandmother should be teaching in leggings and athleisure tops, and our dress code is jeans... Continue reading

I’ve been losing weight, eating less carbs, and as a result I need less insulin. In fact, my basal insulin was down to 4.5 units a day and I was only bolusing for food more than 10 carbs and the... Continue reading

Want to know the biggest side effect from the vaccine? You have to talk about it -- did I mention I was in the Covid study? Anyway, I went in for my 6 month follow up -- had to sign... Continue reading

I saw Dr. Luterman today, I see him yearly. He’s been out of the office for 11 1/2 months. He told me that coronavirus wasn’t going to be a big deal last year, that we get one of these every... Continue reading

I have been on Profile by Sanford since December 10 and have lost 20 pounds. It hasn’t been hard to follow but I do a few more protein and fat, I think, because I don’t measure them. If my weight... Continue reading

I’m thinking they are related. Especially for me. Doing a search on the internet on both conditions doesn’t get any hits. This week, I didn’t sleep much — we had rolling blackouts, was worried about the house and everything else... Continue reading

It's been a fun week. Somehow I lost 4 pounds. I hope I don't find them again. I may be in trouble with my doctor. I'm back a Baylor Dental College as a patient. Last year I had started out... Continue reading

I currently see my lowest weight on my scale since 2017. It may be lower, as it is very close to my lowest weight since Lap Band. I got on the scale three times to see if it was really... Continue reading

I honestly thought wearing a cloth mask over the GIR mask would be a bad idea. I thought it would make fogging worse. However, I needed to go to the TAMU Dental College today, and I have gotten a lot... Continue reading

This concept drives me nuts, but I wear a much different mask from most. Mine is a silicon mask from http://gir.co It clings to the skin, giving a tight seal. If I get any fogging, I just press the mask... Continue reading

I've said this on other people's posts but finding out that I've had the vaccine since September / October is a huge relief. First, I've managed to not get covid by masking, social distancing, and washing my hands. I've traveled... Continue reading

I have hit a weight goal I've had for several years. I’ve always looked at weight loss as a short term and a long term goal. My short term goal has been 245. I’ve tried for two years to reach... Continue reading

I’ve lost 10 pounds now according to the Profile App! Profile has been easy for me, I haven’t had a binge since the day before the foundation repair started. Man was I stressed. We’re slowly adding choices — last week,... Continue reading
