Hi everyone,

I haven't posted in a while because I wasn't ready to share the news that I was pregnant and it was kind of the only thing on my mind for the last six weeks. I was waiting until my first OB appointment. Unfortunately, the pregnancy

As near as I can tell, we have timed things well. I'm not a religious girl but I feel like praying!

Like many others here, I have pretty ridiculous pain from my tailbone. I've had it for months but lately it seems to be even more problematic. It's getting so bad that sitting for half an hour is agony. I get up and walk or stand as much as I can in my

I have an appointment with my bariatric surgeon regarding my gallbladder. My PCP says I have to have it out. I am so nervous. 

  • I'm dreading another round of pre-op testing. 
  • I'm running low on sick leave.
  • I'm weirdly

I was all ready to type up my anniversary post when I doubled over at my desk in searing pain. Ridiculous pain in my right abdomen underneath my ribcage, worse when I breathed, radiating up to my shoulder. I called my primary care doctor who said "No n

I have a horrible time figuring out when I should call my doctor. I just broke out in the most sickening cold sweat. I'm at my office desk, in A/C, and there is sweat just dripping down my face, legs and arms. My stomach was cramping and I felt nauseou

175lbs was a number I remember feeling pretty good about the last time I was this small, so I set it as my goal. I never dreamed I would get here. At many points on this journey, I would say "I feel good. If I don't lose anymore, that's okay." But I st

We got the go-ahead from my PCP so I went off my BC pills, read up a bunch, bought OPK test strips... but I'm still wondering about what would be useful to know. I'm 33 in August, and I wish I was pregnant yesterday! I've had positive OPK results twice

I don't know about you, but I LOVE round numbers, especially BIG round numbers. So when I weighed in at 181.8, I whooped with joy!

Today I ran 5.5 miles like it was nothing (well, not quite, but I felt like I could have done even more!). I am a

I often miss having crunchy snacks. Nuts can upset my stomach and often have more carbs than I want. So I'm a big fan of crispy cheese products. Because they are made of cheese, they are more expensive, but they are very filling and a little goes a lon

1) I had an amazing doctor's appointment. This was a new PCP for me, as my old one retired right after I had surgery. I was pretty sad I didn't get to see her, but I like the new one a lot. My PCP's eyes bugged out when I told her how much I'd lost, an

I'm having a rough night. For some reason, I've found it really hard being at work and listening to people talk about food. I know it's stupid but I hate being the odd woman out.

There are two kinds of conversation at lunch. The first kind is w

Lately I've had parallel experiences that are giving me some food for thought.

I think it's because I went down a pant size, but this week I've been getting TONS of questions and compliments from people at work. Way more than usual. I've had se
