    We're considering getting a tortoise. It's a small one, doesn't get much bigger than a foot around. The vet that my gf works for has a reptile rescue, and is willing to adopt one of her tortoises to us. But we're waiting for things to settle after baby and see how we feel then. We already have a good sized tank for him. My husband was thinking fish when he picked up the free tank and I was like, no. No fish. Fish are a pain and I am NOT cleaning a fish tank on the regular. Every time I've ever tried fish I get to that stage and kill them all. Nope. And Sammie vetoed anything that eats another living creature. She just can't tolerate it in our home, even though she's perfectly ok with it in nature. Which I get. Which leaves us with tortoise.

    Baby is doing really well. One week old today. Nursing is going well, she sleeps for 4 hour chunks at night, and none of us are feeling sleep deprived or exhausted which is great.
    We are what we are. Nothing more, nothing less. There is good and evil among every kind of people. It's the evil among us who rule now. -Anne Bishop, Daughter of the Blood

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    I've talked to the bariatric surgeon yesterday and it's basically the same that he said a few years back. He said he couldn't do it because of the fact of the issues I have with my body. So I am a little disappointed, but he said I could get a second opinion through Cleveland Clinic or UPMC. He advised me not to get one through another that is not a small hospital or something like that. I'm a little disappointed, but I am not giving up.

    If I may ask what issues with your body is he referring to. Are they medical issues?

    The issues I'm talking about are my panhypopituitarism, hypothyroidism, glycogen storage disease, and enlarged liver (lucky me). So according to him, the enlarged liver makes it hard to get to the stomach. The medicines for the steroids would make it hard to heal. So I'm sort of S-O-L. He told me they are getting rid of the lap band because it is dangerous. He also told me that the gastric balloon is something you have to pay for out of pocket. Also they are looking into it because there were 6 deaths last year when it was put in. So I don't know. I'm trying not to be depressed about this.

    That's quite a list of health issues. Must be hard. Is that also the reason why it's difficult to lose weight? Because those diseases affect your metabolism or something? (if you don't mind me asking of course). I hope the doctors will be able to help you.

    I'm going to do a little food challenge myself. I'm going to cut back on sugars starting monday. I've had some sugar cravings lately that I want to reduce. Today and tomorrow are going to be prep days, looking for healthy foods to eat. I'm going to avoid added sugars, so things like fruits are still in. I'm looking for delicious healthy salads, so if any of you know some good recipes, let me know
    Wherever you are in life is exactly where you need to be right now.

    I don't mind you asking hon. My medicines affect my weight loss. Some of them work against me and make me gain weight. Also right now I am going through the Keto Flu. Here's a link: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/keto-flu-symptoms. It's sort of like coming off caffeine cold. I'm having headaches, feeling foggy at work, a little irritable (but trying to keep that in), and having some weakness. It should pass soon. I'm just looking forward to getting out of this stage.

    Funny thing is, the part of the city affected is pretty much exactly where I walked when I was there in June. I walked from Penn Station over to 5th and up, across the park to 8th and up to 72nd, then back down 8th to Penn Station.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    The city got electricity again and it was short lived. Yay!

    Lord Anubis, I'm craving cheese so bad. My mom said that they tried to do this before and I would take my allowance and buy cheese. I am just feeling so hungry and want more to eat, but I am sticking it through. I know it will be worth it.
