Hi! I am BACK ON SP, ON MY TREK to get and stay healthy! My goal is to lose about 66 pounds. I previously lost 40 with SP in 2006, but due to my vertigo/migraines and my Mom's cancer, I gained it back, as of 8/29/11. I rejoined SP 10/7/14. So this is my Third SP Trek!! I love cats, walking, and Star Trek, hence "Trekpurrson"! I'd love to get some help from others, who have sleep apnea, bad knees, pre-diabetes. All can be resolved by weight loss! We can "trek back to good health"!

I am taking charge of my health to beat sleep apnea, by losing about 66 pounds.


My Program:

    It's Friday once again, and time to get our check-up from the neck up so we can be ready to enjoy our weekend! I think you'll find that these jokes will be just what the doctor ordered to tickle your funny bone because they're really quite humerus.

    For those of you who are uncertain of the meanings of medical terms, I thought I'd provide a few I've managed to find and decipher for you.

    "Medical Terms for Dummies"

    Artery - the study of fine paintings

    Bacteria - the back door to the cafeteria

    Catscan - searching for the missing kitty

    Cauterize - managed to made eye contact with the nurse

    Enema - Not a friend

    Fester - quicker than someone else

    Fibula - a small white lie

    Nitrates - Rates of pay for working the night shift; normally more than the day rates

    Outpatient - a person who has fainted

    Urine - the opposite of "You're out!"

    Vitamin - What you do when friends stop by for a visit

    I hope these haven't been so upsetting that they've made you nauseous.
    If so, lay down, take two aspirin, and call your doctor in the morning.

    Enjoy your weekend!
