LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!
I weighed this morning and down a couple pounds. Just goes to show that if you just return to sensible eating, you can maintain and even lose a bit. I've worked so hard to get that 8 lbs off, I want it to stay off. Tomorrow I have it on my schedule to go to WW but my schedule changes often depending on the needs of my clients. I think I'll be okay though. Looking forward to it and also looking forward to the new program at the end of the month. Something new to learn is always good.
Was cruisng the internet this a.m. and was on Amazon and saw a book by Marianne Williamson entitled something like 21 Spriritual ways to lose weight. Tried to order it but got bogged down and didn't have to time to sit there and sort it out. I'll probably go back and get it as I like to read motivational and self-help books. I like to have a connection to something in my own personal experience and it has helped me over the years to overcome a lot of things. Trouble is, once I've read it and digested it and worked the program, I need something new again. I'm sure I probably already know most of the 21 Spiritual Ways but I like to be reminded of things like that especially spiritual ones. My way of keeping up my faith is to tap into God things.
There is a new doctor in town that does TIF noninvasive surgery for acid reflux. I take Prilosec and had expeirenced acid reflux over the years but the prilosec isn't keeping some of the silent symptoms down. His brochure from the hospital lists about 12 different symptoms of acid reflex, many that you wouldn't think were symptoms. Like constantly swallowing and clearing my throat, coughing, asthma like symptoms. Sometimes I feel I am drowning in fluid in my esophagus, a lump in my throat that doesn't go away. I also think acid reflux symptoms are disguised as hunger signs. Last night I got a bag of healthy chips to eat simply to try and move the lump in my throat back to the stomach. Sounds awful doesn't it. But I've analyzed the situation and I am going to make an appmt with this doc to see if I am a candidate for this procedure.
Got to go. My son called and his wife was in the New York Marathon this weekend. They were getting ready to leave this morning and his car was broken into last night. Glass broken so this puts a damper on getting out of New York this morning. Later.
