    Re: Why am I still at such a large size

    Summer Schedule Struggle -- anyone else?

    I am a person who likes routine, because then when I deviate, at least I can get back to something. And it doesn't really matter what that schedule is, or if I have to change it.

    Re: July 24th

    I brought chapstick - but you can ask your nurse for the stuff they have (its in a tube here in NC) for your lips. Or for some lemon swabs. They are usually pretty good about doing that for you.
