Fall is upon us

Hi everyone! I haven't posted in a while so I thought I'd check in. I'm uber excited about fall! The weather is cooling down and we've had some amazing weather lately! I love fall, winter, and spring here but I'm not fond of the summer. Though I must say, this summer has been uncharacteristically "not as hot" here and hotter everywhere else. Leave my grammar alone! LOL

I saw the doctor this week. I've been having so many issues with neuropain and my sugar levels aren't stable so I finally said "yes, let's do this" on the insulin. He said as I lose more weight I will most likely come off of it. He explained how once my pancreas is damaged to a certain point, it's through. Scary stuff. I've known way too many people who've lost loved ones to diabetes. I even found out that at least one of my relatives has died from it. I have it on both sides of my family, which I only recently found out.

Once I started on the insulin it seemed like I had more energy almost right away, my neuropain has lessened some, though it has a long way to go. But, today is only day 4.

My weight loss made my doctor very happy. He told me to keep up the good work and see him in a month. With the weather getting better, I will be walking more. The pain is still there, but the more I move, the better I feel. Most of the time.

I've been very busy with life in general. I've spent a lot of time online trying to get a job. I had one interview and it seemed to go well. She said it is a 2 week process, it hasn't been 2 weeks yet but I'm not holding my breath. Regardless of my skills, education, experience, etc., my physical appearance is huge. (pun intended) I wish I could go back to running my home based business, I took a lot of pride in that and had a good reputation. But, that's not really an option now.

Anyway, I wanted to check in. I hope everyone is doing well. :)


  1. Congrats on the good doctor visit! And yeah, it's weird -- it's not been quite as miserably hot this summer. Granted, where I live it was up to 92 today, but all of last week we didn't even break 90. Weirdness.

  2. Keep up the good work! A body in motion stays in hurts me to move too, but I seem to hurt not as much if I move....ok maybe too many margaritas for dinner???
