After gaining almost 20 pounds, and losing control. I have finally gotten it together and lost 5 pounds the first week, gained 1.2 pounds the second week (water weight), and this past weigh in I lost another 3 pounds. I am tracking about 85% of the time, and much more mindful of what I "stuff" in my mouth. Now if only figure out this stupid right knee. It makes walking a horrific experience, yet I keep trying. I went to see the orthopaedist, and he shot me up with cortisone right in the knee joint...OUCH! Numbing agent or not, it hurt like a B----! I will admit that it has helped somewhat, but I still believe something is wrong because every so often, I feel a sharp pain in the knee, and it causes my knee to buckle. NOT GOOD FOLKS!
On the bright side, I don't feel sluggish, and I am about to destress because I was told that my "problem patient" is being transferred to another facility in Greece, NY. MAJOR WOOHOO!!! IT'S PARTY TIME!!! I may even be able to cut back on my antidepressant a bit! Her behavior was slowly eating away at me, and I resented her (it's really sad because I don't resent anyone, and I love my patients, as they bring me a sense of joy to my work).
I refuse to surround myself with negative people as they are the ones who leech pessimism, and negativity is what discourages success! I had a co-worker who thought she was "all that", and after I had said something that I thought was humorous, she said, "If I wanted to hear a 'smartass', I would have farted!" Without even batting an eyelash, I replied, "Better to be a smartass than a dumb one!," then I walked away! I had received so many "high fives", my hand was sore!
I am feeling great, and will continue to fight forward.
