Transition Clinic: Flats and Fast Swims
A week ago Saturday I had a very good lesson in not giving up. It was my club's annual transition clinic. I missed last year's so I was really looking forward to it even though I'm already pretty good at transitions. The video from last year looked like fun...

ITU Worlds Short Course: Making the team
One of my long term goals has been to qualify for Team USA in some aspect of triathlon. I looked into it last Fall and decided my best bet was in Aquathlon (no, I don't know how that's pronounced either) because my bike is my weakest leg and because I do a ...

Cleaning out your closet
I am writing this post because I was going to say this to a friend on Facebook but it's really too long and complicated for Facebook. If I've talked about this before on my blog, I apologize in advance for boring people. Once upon a time, I had no idea how ...

Has it really been six years since surgery?
I was sitting here thinking.. hey, my six year anniversary is coming up. I should start thinking about a blog post. Should I do another cottage cheese test? Take measurements? What day does it fall on again? And then I realized it was three days ago. I neve...

I saw Dr. Awesome today. I was very excited going in because I knew he's be happy with my weight loss and, more importantly, I've been happy with my weight loss. I've really stepped it up lately and the scale is cooperating b...

Bones, boobs, and a broken butt
I forgot to post about the rest of my annual tests and stuff. After the lab work, I had my annual DEXA scan and mammogram. My boobs are fine. No surprises there. My bones are good for a woman my age but I want them to be as good as the 35 year olds exemplar...

Annual Check-up: I'm finally over the hill!
I had my annual physical yesterday and got all my lab work back. It's official: I'm in menopause! Now don't hate me fellow older women who had horrible time in peri-menopause, but I barely noticed. Part of that is that I have a Mirena IUD so no monthly even...

Will Swim for Food: Am I Crazy?
Earlier in the Fall, I did a crazy thing. I signed up for Will Swim for Food . This annual event raises money for local food banks. The idea is that we swim around the Santa Clara Wharf in the dead of winter in water with a temp of anywhere from 47 to 57 ° ...

I've been saying this ever since I had WLS surgery! I'm glad to see a doctor saying it too. It definitely corresponds to my personal experience pre-op of losing weight and finding my body fighting me every step of the way (and succeeding) to get back up to my old weight vs. post-op where my body has a new set point and it does everything it can to stay here. I'm almost 6 years out from sleeve surgery and even when I have periods of stress or being on a weight-gaining medicine, eventually everything rights itself and I go right back to 120-125 pounds.
