It's been a while since I have written a blog. My Dr wants me to lose 70 pounds. With the RA affecting both feet, ankles and my right wrist I have invested in a recumbent stationary bike. This is exactly what I needed. I have only missed three days, in the past month, on the bike but on those days I had done a lot of walking. Still tracking my food and doing well. Every once in a while I go over my calorie count for the day but usually not by much. The work schedule is still crazy but I think I am managing the stress better now and the exercise is helping with that. I am not seeing any progress on the scale but I hope that will come soon. And No I am not getting on the scale every day. Maybe once a week or every other week. I can tell that my legs are starting to shape up. Time to start up with some strength exercises again. Not sure if I will make the 70 pound mark but something will be better than nothing. I will keep my positive attitude and keep plugging along.
