    Look on a Washington map for Olympia, head west towards the ocean. They live just past Elma in a town called Brady and are less than a mile off the main highway.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

        • Had another lengthy discussion with hubby last night about eating primal/paleo and doing a whole30. And by discussion I mean - I talked A LOT - not getting much feedback until he finally said - "Okay - lets stop now" That means........ shut up, already!

          I want him to do this with me because it will be easier for me to stay on track - and because it would be good for him. I won't say anything else about it. But I am going to be more strict with how and what I cook - and what kind of food and drink comes into our home. What he does outside of that is up to him.

                    • Had another "kidney stone" type attack last night. Almost went to the ER at 4 AM - but the pain subsided and I was able to sleep. Started out with pain across my entire lower back (flank and lumbar) then seemed to settle to the right side. I've been having lots of back pain lately. Also -- extreme abdominal bloating, and a burning sensation on the lower abdominal area - similar to an extreme case of PMS. But at my age - its not PMS. The bloating is so severe that I feel like I can't take a really deep breathe without effort. I bought a larger size jeans just to be more comfortable over my stomach - but its still quite binding. The weight I've gained since June is now 13 pounds - yet my size 14 jeans still fit every where except the waist. The size 16s are more comfortable every where - but still very tight at the waist. My entire abdomen is noticeably larger - and it isn't squishy....... its firm.

                      I fear something is wrong. I know just enough to get me into trouble when I'm having signs and symptoms of illnesses. Of course my brain goes first to cancer.

                      Anyway - I have a doctors appointment later today. Hopefully she will be able to order tests and start the process of figuring out what is happening.

                      • I'm sorry you are having these issues. I hope the doctor finds out what is going on and it's nothing serious.

                            • thank you for the positive vibes and kind words! I cancelled my morning and evening plans. Due to not feeling well this morning, and the doctor appointment at 7 pm. I am trying to decided about going to the office today. I think I will go.

                              I've just gone through my records on MFP to see what is happening in terms of overall calories. I took an average of 31 days of tracking ........... although not 31 consecutive day as there were 10 days of incomplete or missing data. So - over a period of 41 days I have an average of 1588 calories per day. On the untracked or incomplete days I can state with full confidence that I ate the same on those days as on the days I actually tracked.

                              But I'm not losing. I'm gaining. Todays weight 193.2. At the end of May I was 180. So, I've gained 13 pounds in approx. 20 weeks while eating 1600 calories per day. How is that possible? I have carefully and honestly tracked my calories because I wanted to see if I am somehow eating more than I thought I was. I've been weighing and measuring my portions. I've been eating home cooked probably 99% over this time period. As for keeping it clean I feel I am very honestly staying in the 80/20 range. And probably closer to 90/10 for the most part.

                              The weight gain is all in my belly. My clothes all still fit the same as when I was 180......... except the waistline of my pants.

                              Is it possible to have a 13 pound tumor? That sound stupid just saying it. But - honestly - the numbers aren't adding up.

                              • I would think a 13 pound tumor would be noticeable and palpable.
