all of which is good, but the Dr. wants me 8 lbs thinner. I don't know what is best. Ultimately I know I need to lose the last 8 lbs. Presently? I am gradually getting my strength back after an illness that began with the New Year and lasted weeks, I'm regaining energy little by little, and would frankly prefer to simply focus on healthy eating to achieve that just now, gradually increasing my exercise, and keeping myself 137 or below by that means. I really don't want to limit my carbs below the 135 limit I am supposed to get at present, or my calories any lower than they already are for now. I just want to feel good, increase endurance and get my strength and energy back..then worry a bout it. is that such a bad idea/ or am i being self indulgent?

Re the friend I went shopping with yesterday..I have been sparking with happiness ever since! Formerly around 300 lbs at 5'2 1/2 " tall, she sailed easily into a pair of siz 6 jeans yesterday and looked smashing! I am so overwhelmed with pride in her determination and achievement! She's full of energy, enthusiasm, good health, fitness and emerging self confidence..fills my heart with joy to see it!

I will be very glad when I am cleared for exercise, but that may not be for awhile because of the risk to tendons levaquin presents. Meanwhile, ( have been grocery shopping once, bathed a reluctant 105 lb golden retriever today, have been back in my kitchen cooking, and it feels pretty good. Crashing a little due to ceasing the steroids, but that too shall pass. Breathing on the whole is wonderful..I can fill my lungs clear to the bottom..YES! I've been playing with my meals a lot, trying to get my carbs back into the parimeters. They are soooo narrow, and I so love sourdough.

almost did me in. Scary. Feeling better now..on the mend anyway. Weak still, shaky still, but breathing. We sort of take that forgranted, until suddenly we can't..what a gift life is!
