Gallbladder Surgery 9/1/17

September 1, 2017

Surgery 9/1/17 So today went well. Got to the surgery center at 9am. Got called back pretty quick but then waited in pre-op until around 11:30am. When I woke up I was disoriented. I don’t remember then putting me to sleep. That’s the best part about anestesia. It’s like time traveling. I was in pain […]

No-Fat diet Journal… 

May 23, 2017

Due to my 3rd Trimester Gallstones situation, I have had to cut out all fats. The various diet articles I’ve found for the gallbladder aren’t very comprehensive. Some say citrus is good, other say citrus will cause an attack. So I’m journaling so I  can decide for myself what works and what doesn’t. My plan:


Doctor Visit & Depression Meds

September 21, 2016

I had a doctor follow up today.  The last time I did labs (about a month ago) they had collect a 24hr urine sample. Today my results! Firstly, when I first got there the lady said they didn’t have the mental wellness questionnaire on file for me so I needed to fill it out again for […]

August 18, 2016

I feel like I am very slowly gaining ground on my health crap.  Just a little, but still not bad. I had some interesting news at the doctor’s office today.  I have some stuff to think about – need to figure out how to fix my diet with all the stuff she mentioned today. Cholesterol […]


My Weightloss Progress (Beginning 7/11/16)

July 28, 2016

I am trying to keep daily and weekly tracking on my weightloss because it helps me stay on track daily.  It helps me remember that each day is another chance to get it right, even if I stray because somebody’s husband bought pizza and everyone else in the house looks happy with their marinara teeth […]

I am desperate for motivation and to have someone or something keep me accountable for my health goals.  I am trying sparkpeople again… its an app/ fitness tracker. If you want to keep up with my tracking and fitness, I’ve added a weight tracker in the sidebar.

Survived rocket launcher attack on our helo. Evaded zombies, made it to Abel Township #zombiesrun This is the first time I have used the Zombies, Run! app.(or, lets be honest – ANY running app in years)… I really liked it.  It gives you small incentives to quicken your pace, and actually run a few times […]


That time when I tried to cut out bread..

May 7, 2016

I have had a really plump last few years.  I’ve gotten older, had a kid, and my thyroid stopped working.  All these things can individually cause weight trouble, let alone all three.  I am lucky I haven’t broke 200 pounds yet… but if I don’t figure this thing out – and soon – that dreaded […]

March 28, 2016

My life feels like a whirlwind of disappointment, misunderstandings, frustration, and disorder.
