The campground where I held the star gazing is Bullfrog Pond in the Austin Creek Nature Reserve. I went several weekends this summer and had the same glorious experience I blogged about last. The Wallbridge fire has burnt the Bullfrog Pon... Read more
I DID IT! I brought my A1c down. No insulin for me!

I am so happy. I need to remember this feeling to keep me motivated to keep it up. In two months, my A1c went from 9.9 to 7.3. When I get tested in three months, I'm going to make sure that it's below 7 and eventually I'm getting it under 6.... Read more
Too Afraid to Fail

A few years ago, I was diagnosed with diabetes. YIKES! That's serious. I started taking Metformin, I lost weight, I brought my A1c to 5 (which is GREAT), my doctor was pleased. I was pleased. Then, (you know this part, right?) I let my... Read more

The Kincade fire is burning, uncontrolled, north east of me - we are getting smoke. The electric company has said that my power may go off in the next day or two to keep equipment from sparking new fires. I telework, so I just hope I can get t... Read more

When I was losing weight to fit into the suit for my son's graduation, I made up a list of weekly goals to get there by his graduation. It was pretty ambitious and, it turns out, I didn't need to lose as much as I thought to be able to get into... Read more
Take THAT diabetes!

Two years ago, I was diagnosed with diabetes. I was just into the range that justifies the diagnosis -- 6.5 A1C. Since then, my tests showed 6.5, 6.4.... It was 6 months from my last test when I went in for my labs yesterday. I read th... Read more

I know I am not alone in having said HORRIBLE things to myself. I've been hateful, rude, judgmental, and said things to me that I would never even THINK about someone else, let alone say. I did it for years. Did it help? I can honestly s... Read more
Women's clothing sizes are SUCH A SCAM!

I've been going through my closet to get rid of some of the biggest things I don't need any more. I don't want to have a 'safety net' because I don't want to make it any easier to gain back weight. I have to try EVERYTHING on. There is n... Read more
Setting the record straight

The photos I have here show my progress when I lost weight in Ecuador. I took photos every 10 pounds down and they go all the way to 185, down from 242. Then in 2013 I moved, retired, divorced, and went through empty nest. Those aren't ... Read more
More than a bag of dirt

I did some gardening today. It's not something I'm very good at and I don't do it very often (these are probably related facts). Hope springs eternal and every spring I try planting something different to the previous year in the hopes it will... Read more
