Get it flat: Easy tips for losing belly fat

September 11, 2011

This is a guest post by Amanda Kidd. For a world driven by appearances, how we look often determines how others judge us. All of us want to appear attractive, not just to the opposite gender but to the world at large. Our body shape and posture send out strong messages about who we are. [...]

Second Year on CPAP

August 2, 2011
CPAP Machine

I had a good first year on CPAP and somehow I managed to have an even better second year. I’m not sure why I can stick to this so well (when so many other people have difficulty with it) and yet I can’t stick to any sort of eating or exercising plan. To summarize the [...]

2011 Blood Test Results

July 30, 2011
Blood test

I’m going to make this short and sweet. I’m in a funk, I haven’t been writing and I certainly haven’t been eating well and/or exercising. I learned nothing from last year’s poor blood test and here I am another year later (well, I guess about 9 months later) and things are slowly getting worse. 2006 [...]


2010 Blood Test Results

October 15, 2010
Blood Test

I skipped getting a physical in 2008 and had been putting it off again this year because I knew that I was not going to be happy with the results. In fact, I was downright afraid. I knew there was a very good chance I’d be told I was diabetic and that I would be [...]

2009 Blood Test Results

July 21, 2009

I had put off a doctor visit for awhile so the blood work I recently got back is the first I have had for about 20 months. But despite my not doing well on my weight loss plan the results were pretty good. In fact, much better than I expected. Frankly after being diagnosed with [...]


Doctor Visit

June 30, 2009

I had my annual physical yesterday. Well, not quite annual. It’s been about 20 months since my last one - I skipped last year. Dumb, dumb, dumb. I just turned 43 and I can’t be skipping these things. So the good news is that even though I haven’t been feeling good about myself I did [...]


Looking at my Family History

June 23, 2009

I’m having a physical next Monday and this time I will finally be prepared to include some family history in my file, which they asked for the last time I was there but I neglected to bring in. Because I didn’t have it. This year I have it because I thought to remember to ask [...]
