I have not been blogging about my Peace Corps experience for a bit. There were several reasons for this. The decision to join the Peace Corps and go to Mozambique has been a deeply personal one, that has elicited conflicting responses from friends and family. I would be lying if I said that I have not had second and third thoughts about this. I am leaving my life for 27 months, and at this point, I am down to the final stages.

I have lost just shy of 45 lb since the end of April on the ketosis diet. Obviously, with such rapid weight loss, your skin needs time to catch up. Since I am in my early forties, I did not expect that my skin was going to bounce back like it did when I was in my twenties. In an effort to minimize the issues that I may have as I continue to lose weight, I have been trying to be proactive about my skincare.
"Oh, my back still hurts," Jim groaned as he sat on the bed and bent over to pick up his shoe. "Why don't you try a massage?" His wife asked. "My friend Carol swears massage is the only thing that can help her back pain." Jim sighed as he tied his shoe. "I suppose I have tried everything else. The chiropractor says my back is fine, just the muscles are tight. My doctor gave me muscle relaxants, which I don't like to take, and our insurance only covered four physical therapy visits. Massage can't hurt my back any more than it already does, I guess."
