I don't care what I did in the past that has made my weight increase at each post-dialysis weigh-in before today! From now, it'll be different! I'll not only achieve my dry weight, I will make it slightly less if possible! And I'll try to make my targets less than 3kgs!
I won't drink excessively, I'll only drink when I'm thirsty. And I won't eat salty foods that make me want to drink and drink. I'll only eat when I'm hungry and I won't eat too much either coz foods add up too.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life! I owe to my heart to watch my weight! Not just for a healthier lifestyle but to prolong my life as a dialysis patient! I will do this!

My Mom makes a mean laksa! Laksa is a Malaysian noodle dish with fresh grated cucumber, mung bean sprouts, fish cake, chopped pineapple, raw onions with a hint of lime juice, all topped off with an aromatic fish soup. My Mom's laksa is the best!
Which is why I'm so worried about weighing in now. I had a heaping bowl for breakfast, another heaping bowl for lunch, and I just had a small bowl a few minutes ago, and that was around 10.40pm.
I guess I'll be in trouble again on Monday. I'll be too heavy again. Gosh, everything seems so hopeless! Just for once, I'd like to extract less than 3 kilos during dialysis. Actually, not just for once, but from now on would be more appropriate!
Oh! What am I to do?!

Well, I had a good time with my friend. I ate a LOT of sushi! and a medium size shashimi! I also had too much cold green tea. As expected I was still too heavy at weigh-in in the dialysis centre today.
I guess from now on, I have to eat like a rabbit and drink sparingly. It's my only choice now. My blood pressure keeps dropping towards the 3rd hour of dialysis. I have to take action now before it's too late!
Not only do I have to pray hard but I have to do something about it too, everyday.

I have unusual challenges that most women (and men) in SP don't face normally. This is because I'm a dialysis patient. I have SLE and this has caused my kidneys to fail. I've been on dialysis for 6 years now.
Unlike most ppl, I have to watch my fluid intake. I'm about to go out for a sushi dinner with a friend of mine and I'm so worried that I'll be too heavy (again!) for tomorrow's dialysis treatment.
At the moment, I go 3 times a week, and I'm scared to death of having to go 4 times a week instead. This is because I've been extracting 4kgs of fluid each time I go. And even after treatment, I'm still a little heavier than usual.
Allow me to explain. Ideally, after every treatment, I should weigh 56kgs (my current dry weight). But lately, I've been between 56.1 to 56.7kgs (on a bad day). I so afraid that the doctor will put me on 4 treatments a week instead of 3!
Dialysis 3 times a week is already a pain! 4 would be torture! Which means, I can't even enjoy myself fully during dinner today. I pray that I will urinate a lot tonight so that I won't be overly heavy tomorrow afternoon when I go for my last dialysis treatment for the week.....pray for me.......

Well, it's the beginning of the month again, 1st March 2011 and I'm starting anew. No more excuses. I'm going to track my food and exercise diligently from now on until I lose the weight. And after I lose the weight, I will still track my diet and exercise to maintain my new healthy weight.
Oh Yes! It's the new me! I've also joined similar challenges in 2 of my SparkTeams to drill the message home to my brain! It's also an accountability thing. Well, this time, I hope to reach 50kgs at last and when I do, I'll keep maintaining it.
I'm more than ready to shed my love handles! Who's with me!?
