This site is a compilation of my thoughts, struggles, concerns, information and rambling about a variety of health, weight loss, and fitness topics.
It started as a chronicle of my journey to obtain surgery at the Center for Endometriosis Care in Atlanta, Georgia for endometriosis / adenomyosis. It started with the first days I noticed something wasn’t right, straight through to a surgery and diagnosis, worsening of symptoms, almost to the point of being debilitated and a non-existent quality of life. Then as I pursued out of network coverage with my HMO and finally obtained approval and had the surgery in 2004.
Since then, I have tried to keep up with small updates that I’m feeling OK, so people who come to the site will know so many years later that the surgery (knock on wood) has been so successful. I continued to struggle with weight issues that have plagued me since the early 90′s, through today as I am honing on on getting back to the weight I was then and wanting to maintain a permanent lifestyle of diet and exercise that will keep the weight off!
