Reset part 2

I went from 220.5 to 212.5 using the USANA shakes, then after starting to eat again, I'm back to 215, my current set point. Starting the reset again, to get down to 210, etc. My goal is 195. I want to lose my belly. Sorry, you've got to go.

The San Francisco Ballet season has started up again. Saw Yuan Yuan Tan in Raku the first program and then in Giselle in the second program. Such a fantastic artist!

Time to Reset

Still holding on to my Holiday weight, I've decided tonight to start USANA's 5 day Reset program. It consists of 3 meal replacement shakes each day, mid meal bars for snacks, and Usana's HealthPak vitamins. They also recommend walking10,000 steps per day. Starting weight: 220.5. Yikes.

Hello 2015

Howdy world!

It's been a while since I've done anything with this blog, and now I'm writing in it again. I've changed the theme (it may change again) and I'm committing to writting here more frequently.

There's been a lot going on. My mom passed away this last summer at 83. I just completed assisting with San Francisco's Wisdom City Team on the accomplishment team, and I'll be doing that again this year. I went to my second Burning Man, and I plan to go again this year. I want to start dating again, move to a new apartment, and find additional income somewhere. Art? Writing? Yes, more of that, please.

Later!
Benson

Dear Friends,

My niece, Claire, has Cystic Fibrosis and I am asking for your support as my family and I participate again in Great Strides, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual, nationwide walk event that raises money to help support vital Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research and care programs. This year’s walk will be held on May 17th at Westgate Mall in San Jose.claire_2014

What is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic Fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects over 30,000 Americans. The disease is marked by chronic lung infections and clogged airways, along with sinus, digestive and reproductive problems. One out of every 31 Americans is a symptomless carrier of the defective CF gene. When the CF Foundation was founded in 1955, children with CF were not expected to see their first day of elementary school. Many people with the disease can now expect to live in to their 30s, 40s, and beyond. This progress is amazing - but not good enough - as we continue to lose at least one precious life to CF every day.


Team Claire: My niece Claire would not be alive today without the medications and therapies developed with funding from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. She was diagnosed with CF when she was 15 months old after many months of being terribly sick. Today she is a happy 10 year old who loves who loves dancing ballet. When you meet Claire, you would never know that every day she requires 1-2 hours of medications and breathing therapy, and takes over 25 pills per day. The reality is that without better medications, her health will decline. We remain optimistic as medications that could counteract Claire’s type of CF are currently in clinical trials. If these medications work, Claire may be able to live a normal life. Events like Great Strides raise money that is needed in the battle against CF and help us get closer to a cure.

Please support me!

Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.

Help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

Many of you know that my 9 year old niece Claire has Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Even with over an hour of lung therapy a day and many medications, her health will continue to decline if we can't find a cure. I know we can do it! Your tax deductible gift to CFF will go towards finding a cure: http://www.cff.org/Great_Strides/dsp_DonationPage.cfm?walkid=8272&idUser=417546. Any donation will be greatly appreciated!
