Yesterday was my three month re-check with my Primary care Dr. She had time to spend with me and saw that I had lost 9 lb. since May when I was last there. She asked what I was doing and I told her about Sparks and that I had chosen to do the South Beach plan as it had worked for me before.
I told her about all the support I receive and how my Spark Friends are such inspiration and motivation.
Two of my Spark Friends Jill0313 and Tortillaflats are doing the plan with me and really keep me accountable.
She is going to do Fasting Blood work and see how my numbers are. She was thrilled that I have worked hard at the weight loss even with all the health issues I have going on. She is hoping for another 10 lb. by December.
I go tomorrow for my 4th vein procedure. I have anxiety about them even though the worst is over and they have given me so much relief from the pain that was in my legs. My B/P dropped very ow last time but I am hoping that we can head it off this time. The nurse says it is an adventure each time I come in as I have not responded as expected to any of the procedures. They are
part of my medical team.
Well I am off to begin the day. I sat a new record for myself yesterday with 37 minutes on the recumbent bike and am wondering if I should try to increase today or maintain. I will not be able to ride for a while and will be in a recovery time for a few days. Work should be fun and I hope for a trip to the library.
Have a Sparkling Day my Friends!
