So yeah-

- I'm pretty much sick of all this ice. Ever since we had that ice storm, it's been an icy world of doom. It froze all surfaces, and even froze the 9+ inches of snow. I mean froze. Solid. Completely. It was a bit warmer today, so it melted some... but not much. Weeks now. Weeks of living in a frozen hell. Like, the morning after the storm, I was going home from work... It took me a good fifteen minutes to walk to my car, a walk that normally takes a minute tops. There was an inch of ice on the pavement. I was slidding one foot at a time, as careful as I could.

- Our driveway is on a hill. We park up it. Today we parked it like we always do. I went to go to the car to drive to work, and it had slid down the driveway. I kid you not. Slid down the driveway on the ice, almost into the street. Fantastic.

I hope spring gets here early.

- Still on track with my calories and exercise! So with all my changes (Metformin dose/types, exercise, dietary changes, etc...) According to my home scale, I am now down like 10lbs since Thanksgiving. Ha! I have trouble believing that, because my clothes do not agree, but the scale seems to think so. I'm just going to go with it.

So 40 more to go before October!

- Going back to the docotor Thursday... still not sure how I feel about that. I know I need to, and I love my doctor, but... it's hard to explain. When I figure out what I'm trying to say, I'll put it in another post. Just a lot of things.

Is it supposed to warm up by you guys this week?

We're up in WI and it's supposed to be in the 30s & 40s and hopefully melt all this shit. I can handle the cold, not the 5' of snow, bah.

Awesome job with the weight loss!! Good luck with your doctor this week.

Wow, your parked car slid down the hill! Yikes! We've had a bit of ice, but not as much as you guys. Ugh. It was 45 degrees here yesterday, so stuff is melting. I even saw people in short sleeves.

Yay for doing so great with the exercise and eating plan! 10 lbs is wonderful!
