It's been a week.

It's been a week. I can't say I'm looking forward to the next week either. Hopefully I'll be better at managing my time so I can do more things like updating this blog and publishing a new podcast.

I'll be adding some rants to this blog pretty soon, they should be entertaining if nothing else. Tell your friends.

How Fast Are You?

From Home

From Work(wish it was from home)

One Year, roughly, Update

I was reading over what little I had posted in the last year. I noticed I put up some information on trying to diet and lose weight with direction from my doctor. Earlier this year I had a follow-up appointment with the sleep clinic and while my sleep has vastly improved, my weight hadn't. To add insult, or a wake up call depending on when you ask me, the doctor there said he would write a recommendation for me to have Gastric Lap Band surgery. The procedure is not as severe as Gastric Bypass, but garners the same results. Either way it is a procedure which is the last thing I want. At that time I was determined to prove him wrong by my appointment next year.

I just had a six month follow-up with my general practitioner and it was a good news/bad news situation. The good news is that I have cracked the 300 lb. barrier and now weigh approximately 297 lbs. The bad news is that my blood pressure is up a bit and we are looking at changing my medication around. I wanted to be further along at this point in the game, say about 275-280 lbs, but I'll take the ground I've gained so far.

Since our dog passed and I'm not obligated to walk her in the morning, my exercise has dropped off. I really need to get back into the gym.

I'm moving back here. Frankly I find this to be a better platform in which to create. That and I'm really getting tired of the 'True' dating site ads on MySpace.

If only I could find a way to post to both blogs to keep readers happy.

Who am I kidding, readers?
