In my last blog I was only a pound and a half away from my one of my goals - to lose 50 lbs. Today I am 5 lbs away from my goal. A lot has happened since I last wrote, and it is obvious that I comforted myself once again with food.
The major issue occured when I went to the dentist for a routine cleaning and found out that a molar that had a root canal and crown was loose and needed to be removed. Once the tooth was pulled I had so much trouble chewing that I made an appointment with a specialist to learn about getting an implant. After a CT scan, I learned that there was major bone loss in my jaw and it would take nearly 8 thousand dollars to build back up the bone and do the implant - with out the crown. My other alternative is to get another bridge. I am no fan of those for a whole host of reasons.
Since we don't have 8 grand, the point is moot. Anyway, pity party is over. I am working on eatting better and getting back on my diet and stop the comfort eating cycle.
