October 5, 2017 UPDATE

I am okay. I weigh less but not as less as I would like. I have not needed any follow up on the abdominal issues I was having last November/December. My tendinitis has reduced to the point that I am able to walk a mile or two without dying. I am imperfect and I am trudging because it beats the alternative. I do not like what happened when I went backwards. Forward is better.

I haven't had the desire to post. At least that is what I told myself. When I decided to write this today I saw that I have a few saved posts I never finished and some are from the Europe trip last year. Now I am excited to do some writing because it is already half done.

A few months ago our beloved Bichon, Keeper Quaffle Cartelli, passed away. Even extreme medical measures did not save him. He was ill less than 24 hours. So grateful my husband and I were awake with him when he passed at 3:30 in the morning.

I committed to waiting 5 months before seeking to adopt another dog. Well, in doggy years, five months is 3 weeks. . . . SO, 3 weeks later we adopted Peanut from the Orlando Pet Alliance! Peanut is a rescue and the sweetest of 3 year old puppies! We suspect he is part Schnauzer and part Bichon. DNA test for Christmas. I thought because he was so small he would need a doggy stroller for long walks. I have not reached that point with him yet. he is happy walking a mile and a half. I have to try the two mile walk with him next.

My next post will be something I started 18 months ago. I'll post it next week.

Vickie: I cannot get into your blog to read it. It says my invite has expired. I hope you are well, too.

Glad you are back to blogging. Sorry about the pup loss. Glad you got a new pet. I've slowed down blogging because home life and work life are very busy.

I have been to more meetings and meet-ups with folks in real life around Low Carb, Keto, and Intermittent Fasting. Now that I'm 5.5 years into weight maintenance, I feel I can speak about maintenance, my experiences and learnings, a whole lot better. So much talk about weight loss, not enough maintenance resources- IMO.

I will continue to post my monthly updates, because I can see that knowing I'm going public with my stats squashes the binge brain every time.

I'm so glad you updated your blog. Karen P
