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 [...]

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 [...]


Simple Swollen Calf or Deep Vein Thrombosis?

May 27, 2009

My right calf has been swollen and a little sore for the last few days. It started last Sunday when I spent the better part of the afternoon trimming the bushes around our pool. I think the landscaping company that put them in assumed we would pay for them to trim the bushes every year [...]

Successfully Losing Weight in Your Forties

January 24, 2009

One of the things that concerns me about my weight loss journey is my age and the impact it has on my being successful. When I was young it seemed so easy to lose weight when I needed to. As I have hit my forties it seems to be so much more difficult. Not that [...]
