4/29/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 23

Greetings my Friends. Spirits on the rise, Energy good and steady.

Things are getting better. I feel stronger physically and mentally everyday. While I am not where I want to be, I am getting there at a good pace. I have to be patient and let my body heal and heal it is at it's own time.

Greetings all. Spirits Up and Energy good.


Well to my surprise I had some positive results on the scale or was it a surprise? I guess I should not be surprised. So what did I do different? 


OK, I will admit I went against my own rules and conducted a Mini Experiment.  Hey I had to do something to break the stall. So what was involve with the Mini Experiment? First I decided to change................not!!!

4/27/2012 The Experiment 2.0 Day 21

Greetings Friends. Spirits are OK, Energy levels steady.


I am really trying hard to stay positive in a difficult situation. My condition is getting better, but slowly. I know I need more patience, yet it is somewhat wearing me down. So "Chin Up" for now. I need to stay Strong, Positive and most of all Focused.

4/24/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 18


Howdy all. Spirits are OK, Energy could be better.

Here I lay pretty miserably. I feel like a caged animal. I feel trapped in my bed. I can type alright, but what to tell? I want this Blog to be a "Positive Source" of information and inspiration" not an outlet of whining and griping like a big baby. HA!!!

4/23/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 17

Greetings all.


Things are not good. I went to the Doc today to follow up and did not get good news. The Doc said I will be on the sidelines for two weeks. I have agonizing pain on my right foot. It is called Cellulitis. It is not good and I am really down in the dumps about it.

4/22/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day16

Greetings. Spirits OK, Energy level OK.


Things are not so great right now health wise. My foot pain escalated and it got swollen, red and tons of pain. I mean I could not stand on it. I kept thinking it would subside, but it didn't and got worse. It was to a point that I could not stand on it and had to hop around. Jeez!!! 


So I went to Woodlands Emergency Center, well actually I thought it was St. Luke's Urgent Care, but the hospital sold it and the new company turned it into an (so called) Emergency Center. What a joke. I should have paid a $60.00 copay, but instead I paid $200.00 copay for my TEN (10) minutes of time spent there. Jeez. 


Then I get a prescription that my "Cheap" worthless insurance only covers thru Mail Order. HMMMM let me see I have a foot infection and now I will wait until I receive a mail order. Oh yeah it is Saturday night so when may I actually get it. So what did I do? Well I paid $129.00 for seven (7) freaking pills. Thank God I am not that cheap. Why? Because while I am not cured it is actually getting a little better. I passed on the Vicodin and chose to use 600 mg of Ibuprofen instead. I do not want to use pain killers. I will hold out until I can't stand it. It's my personal choice.

4/21/2012 - The Experiment Day 15

Greetings Friends. My Spirits and are good.


Now my foot is another thing. It is in big, big pain. So much so that I made an appointment this morning with the Doc. Jeez this is sounding familiar. too many Doc appoints too soon. YIKES!!! My foot was swollen and a little red with tons of pain when I put pressure on it. I just don't know what caused this.

4/20/2012 - The Experiment Day 14


Hello, hello, hello!!! Spirits soaring. Energy good. 

Hey folks I am not happy to report that I have yet been able to shake this bug. It is getting way better, but I am not over it yet. To make things worse, yes worse I have this weird foot pain on my right foot on the side of the little toe about midway down the foot. The pain is from top to bottom. When I put pressure on it it huts like a MOTHER!!! Funny thing: I get this same deal about every 4 months or so. It comes out of no where. It fist starts out just aching a little one day and the next day it is full blown. I have not seen a Doc about it yet. Jeez!!!

4/19/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 13


Greetings Friends. My Spirits and Energy levels can only get better.

Still under the weather a bit, things are getting much better, yet still a bit sick. I have hopes of being totally well by the weekend, but who really knows?
No real big plans for the weekend, except maybe yard work, fun I know. I have been wanting to do some “Square Foot” gardening. Just some herbs, peppers and some veggies that my family eats. Yes just call me Dave the “ENABLER” a title bestowed upon me somewhere else. HA!!!

Greetings all. My Spirits and Energy levels are good.


I am getting much better. Still a little down, but getting there. Not much to report or talk about today. I have a load of things going on and don't have a great amount of time. So this will be very short.

4/17/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 11

Howdy Y'all. Spirits up, Energy............so,so. Yes, I am still sick.

Jeez this is getting old. I all but lost my voice for the last three days. Today my voice is coming back. I am getting better, but it is taking a long time. Thank God I did not get the Meds. I hate to take any kind of Meds. I just do. So is getting Well taking long or have we become a society that expects everything quick. I don't know because I am not that smart, but all I know is that I will get well and I will move forward. In this state of being I am not able to peruse a few things that I want to do. God willing by this weekend I will be better and start new ventures that have been on the back burner.

4/16/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 10

Greetings all! Still sick, yet getting better. My Spirits are great my Energy........well it's OK.

Day 10 already. Wow where did the time go. 1/3 of the way through. Now I will be honest and say that if I continue to get good results like I have been so far, I will extend the Experiment for yet another 30 days or more.

4/15/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 9

Greetings Friends and Family. I am feeling like ............ well lets say not great. This virus thing just sucks. I still have not got the prescription filled. I am hoping to fend it off myself.

So again a short post or maybe not so, so short, yet I am keeping with my promise of a daily post right? I think so. I am just resting mostly. I really need to go to work Monday. So sick or not I will be going to work. Too many things going on there. I am worried about sucking down these sugar free cough drops maybe hindering my weight loss. No excuse just a concern.

4/14/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 8

Hi all. My Spirits are up, but my Energy level is still a little low. 


This bug just won't let go. I went to the Doc yesterday evening and he gave me a different prescription, but he said that it my be a virus and that I should wait and see it it runs it course. So I am fine with that and here I suffer.

4/13/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 7


Greetings all! My Spirits are great. My Energy levels are a little down.

Well folks I’ve gotta say that the “bug” that got me recently is raising its ugly head. I have pain in my throat. I will call the Doc to see if he will prescribe the meds again. I hate to take the meds, but I need to get well and right now I am down.

That being said, the diet is getting only better. Why? Because I am going full throttle on it, I won’t make any excuses. I will be successful and that is it period. Jeez did I sound determined or what? HA!

More and more and more, there's so much we don't wanna do 



Well what in the heck does all that mean? I dunno I just like the song for crying out loud. HA! Yes I am in a rather chipper mood today. Why? Can you guess? Yeah I am sure you can.

Howdy my Friends and Family. Spirits are flying high and my Energy levels are much better.

Today I expect to catch up on my rest. I don't have any activities scheduled tonight so I will get to rest early.

Well it had to happen. It was just a matter of time. What can I say? Would it make a difference? Would it? Especially at this point. What is the use?

4/9/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 3

Greetings All! My Spirits are great and Energy levels are getting better. I think another day of good rest will bring me up to par.

Well today was a pretty good day. I went to a church meeting at 7 pm so I did not get to catch up on my rest as I wanted to. I just got home less than an hour ago. The meeting was over two hours long. We are getting ready for our next church retreat. This time I will be a team member instead of a Retreatant. Hey it's good to give back.

4/7/2012 - The Experiment 2.0 Day 1

Good Day All! My Spirits and Energy Levels are good.

Day 1 = 00.0 lbs

Day 1, day 1 indeed. Is it hard? Is it easy? Is it.....what? Yes, yes and yes. Well it is not really hard in a sense or is it?

I have decided to put a day to day record of the weight I lose day by day. The format may change if I come up with a better way to display it. Today being the first day will so of course a big FAT ZERO or just 0. The first results + or - will be recorded. Yes gain or loss will be recorded. Example: 1 pound loss will be recorded as - 01.0 lbs, 1 pound gained will be recorded as +01.0 or something like that. Of course there will be running total regardless of gain or loss.
