Working on Reinvention

I'm trying to reinvent myself—at 55. There comes a time when you realize that reinvention isn't just something you want and maybe think about every once in a while. It's something you need and have to do to stay sane. I haven't been happy doing what I'm currently doing for a very long time. And I really mean in all areas of my life. Not just the work-a-day world.

Moving forward has become critical to my livelihood. I'm trying to figure out how to make the changes I need to make. Until then I'm not sure what I have to say.

Bad Week for Health and Family Emergencies

I'm not sure what's going on with me health wise. I thought I was feeling better, but my bloodworm indicates that potassium levels are falling—not getting better. I guess I was feeling better because I am getting some potassium, but still not enough. My doctor is't sure why. But he thinks it's probably related to the thyroid issue. My body just refuses to hold onto the potassium. Since I've been getting a lot more exercise, it's probably coming out in sweat. This is really frustrating.

I haven't weighed myself again yet. I'll let you know it there's anything else to report.

This photo was taken in Ruby Memorial's ER AFTER she cleaned up. 
It's been a rough week. My little niece got hurt in a bad fall Monday evening. She's recovering well, but it's been tough seeing her in pain. Your prayers are welcome. She's got a lot of bruises, and she knocked out a permanent front tooth. The tooth is wired back in, but will probably need replaced soon.

She's a brave kid. After everything, she still laughs and smiles.

Bizarro World

This has been one of those bizarre weeks. I wish I had a little magic to make things OK.

I'm getting a lot of walking in, although I didn't walk today.

I don't know what to say. I wish I had some wishes—that's all.

I'm a Loser. Thank God.

I weighed myself this morning, I'm now down another two pounds, making my loss 16 pounds. The weight loss is slow, but at least it's coming off now. I think getting my potassium levels under control has a lot to do with my energy levels and my new found ability to getting on the losing side of my weight issues. I've also been walking a lot. And I'm sure that's helping.

Mobile Post

I'm posting from a mobile phone. And it's hard. I've lost 14 pounds since my last doctor's appointment.
