Follow the Bouncing Ball

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Dropped to 558, back up to 560. My current short-term goal is to get as many days under 2500 calories as I can. (Two days so far.) Then my next goal will be to try and beat the number of days.

My exercise hasn't been great. It's been really hard to get to the pool without the pool aide to assist me. My husband has to come help after work or we need to go really early on Saturday mornings. Neither are easy to do with him working full-time and needing to run errands. I know, they are just excuses, but I haven't yet gotten into a new pattern. Last week I had lunch with a friend on Saturday and we couldn't afford the gas to do both the lunch and the pool. This weekend he needs to work over-time, so I'll only get one pool visit this week, too.

I'm seeing my doctor about stomach pain and on-going intestinal distress. They've ruled out C. diff and something bacterial. They've done ultrasound. I've got a big gallstone, but it's not acting up at the moment. I'm leaning toward a diagnosis of GERD or Irritable Bowel at this point. We'll see.

    Hi Nora...I initially lost seven pounds but then gained it back, and having just fell back into a well of despair I think I probably gained more weight as a result of poor coping mechanisms. I can say I am making choices in seeing what I can do. I'll take those victories any day. Here with ya on the long haul....hoping you can go swimming more. I can't wait to do that too. I have the bathing suit. I am just mortified to show my thighs. I really don't care about people seeing I am a woman with size, but I do care a whole lot about the way my thighs look and I am not so sure why it distresses me so greatly. Anyways....good night.

    Nora, I feel for you, anyone with stomach or intestinal problems that lasts for awhile, I am so glad that C-Diff was ruled out but I don't know what GERD is. My prayers will be going up for you. Hope you get more pool time in soon. I know you enjoy it. You were the one that encouraged me to put on that swimsuit and get in the pool. Thankyou for all your encouragement.
    Hugs, Gail
