Congrats on losing the meds. Less is always more when it comes to prescriptions.

I've been terrible on eating which hasn't been an issue for weight, but does cause serious gas. Workouts were off a bit due to a bad cold but back on track now.
Job front is good as I'm trying to get a tech business off the ground.
The gout in my knees is finally receding! I've been able to hit the gym pretty hard this week, with rowing and lifting - now biceps, upper back muscles and abs hurt but knees and ankles don't. At least you know that muscle pain is only temporary.
Actually could see a vein on my right bicep while rowing. The wonders never cease.
Have a great week guys.

Weighed 3 times making sure of what I was seeing! Trying to be more mindful about the eating especially when I'm working. Try to eat in the office, "dude food" or protein bar, at least twice if not 3x a week. Exercise out of kilter last week because of having a couple of days with some OT tacked on the end.
Congrats on getting off the meds. Despite the Actigall still had to have gall bladder out at 18 months post op. Epiphany moment when I did. Was at out patient surgery clinic and had to walk from prep area to OR. Froze when I saw the table with outstretched arms and I tripped back to a tour of the Walls Unit in Huntsville including the Death House. Told the gas passer what was going on and what I was thinking. Told him to make damn sure I woke UP!! Did not help this was shortly after Michael Jackson's passing away and him informing me he'd get the "Jack-O Juice" going.
Fingers crossed for Saints and Chiefs today.
Have a Great Week!!
Never, and I mean NEVER, trust a fart!!

I'm still losing inches so I'm being philosophical about this. Was Officially taken off of my meds for high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes Wednesday. Have to pick up a scrip for Actigall but that's just for while I'm losing weight so hopefully in 6 months to a year I'll be drug free. Hope everyone is enjoying the football games.
Dear Doctors and friends,my doctor suggested me to undergo Fundoplication surgery, after acid reflux stage 4 inflammation level at lower esophagus. shall i go for it or seek further option, i have already completed two short courses regarding nexum tablet intake for one and half month, until i was taking tablet things were OK as i quit, acidity starts again. i have video of the recent endoscopy as well, if any doc need to review i can share. thanks in advance.

Furnace problem turned out to be a small hole in a hose. One of the Vacuum hoses for a pressure switch had a hole rubbed into it from the impeller motor flywheel. Took 3 years to wear a hole in it. So replaced the hose (and rerouted it). Also swapped out a kinked drain line (new one immediately kinked again, sigh). Unit fired right up.
For the Federal employees sake this BS needs to end. Like you said they don't give a damn about the Country and IMHO are only watching out for themselves. With at least 5 Democrats already announcing, or jockeying to announce, a run for the White House I'm afraid the rancor will only get worse over next two years.
