Good news and a challenge...

Wednesday, January 03, 2007

Well, the good news is that I hit a milestone of 45 pounds lost today! That felt great!! And...when I started losing weight I bought a favorite light jacket make of travel knit fabric. That was a 2X. Today, I wore my new jacket (same jacket), but in an XL!!! That definitely felt great!

But...I've also been thrown a challenge. My doctor just put me on prednisone (a steroid) for a medical condition. Every time I've taken this drug in the past, my face has really puffed up and I've gained weight. One of the side effects is that it makes me *ravenous* with hunger.'s to positive thinking, staying focused on plan, and if I must eat more, choosing to eat healthy foods. I hope that's going to work, but only time will tell!

    You can do it Susan! Push through this adversity! You are a strong woman and I believe in you. Hopefully the medication is just a temporary thing. I am cheering for you!! ((JEN))
