I just read my last blog and need to reflect on this month. I didn't manage to stay below my 2010 beginning weight. Monday I weighed in at 185 which is higher that Jan. 2010. However, today I am at 183.4 so I am a little less.
Now it is time to plan for the New Year. My husband's treatments ended yesterday so beginning next week I can begin back with my exercise routine or at least the line dancing part and possibly the exercising part. I went to a pain management doctor last week and he said where my pain is is not my fractures. They have healed. However, it has aggravated my arthritis and since I have Stage 3 kidney failure and can't take any NSAIDS the pain has become unbearable most of the time. I am going Monday to have some steroid shots in my back and hopefully that will help. For how long, I don't know. But steroids pack the weight on and I am not looking forward to that. I have just about decided that the kidneys are not so bad and I might begin taking my Naproxen again just not doing it everyday. With the beginning of 2011 I hope to get back in the routine of logging everything I eat and drink and with getting back to exercising I hope to begin losing again.
We still have to wait to find out what the results of my husbands treatments are which won't be for a couple of months, but hopefully everything will turn out good and he won't have to do another round. I want to thank all of my friends on SparkPeople for their prayers during this time.
