Just a brief note of frustration...and determination. My health odyssey has been going on for a year now. I'm trying to be as healthy as I can be, and I've been the sickest I've ever been over a 12-month period. To add insult to injury, I've GAINED 20 pounds since this time last year.
There are reasons, and there are some excuses. I'm back at the gym after not being able to work out at all for 5 or 6 weeks. And I'm sleeping better than I have in years. That gives me hope. I'm taking fewer meds than I have been since the beginning of the year...soon to be fewer still. One thing I've learned: prescriptions = weight gain. Don't know why...endocrine system? Liver? Suppressed immune system? Whatever it is, my goal is no prescription meds!
So, I've adjusted my weight tracker to reflect my weight gain...and hopefully that's the last stake I'll be putting in the ground. Just had to vent, and now it's time to move forward! Here I go...
