Half way Point

Friday, October 19, 2012

I started this challenge with an achievable goal of 20 pounds. I am definitely not going to make it. I have been extremely ill for 2 weeks and can do no exercise for another 4 minimum. If ever the infection and the stones clear up - I can find out about the tumor on my right kidney. My weight continues to fluctuate and I am having a difficult time eating anything, as everything seems to trigger my gallbladder right now. As a result I am eating toast and that is about it. My fluid intake is great - but I hold onto to lots of it too. I think that is the reason for the fluctuations.
Having said all of the above I have a commitment to myself to lose some weight. I am not gearing up for size 0 - a size 10 or 12 will be awesome! So I really do need to figure out what I can eat with a minimal amount of discomfort. I will exercise as soon as I am able. But the deal with my Dr. is - if I am readmitted to hospital I stay there until I am completely better - which according to him will be 6 - 12 weeks depending on the kidney. Honestly - I am not up for that. So I am following his instructions to the best of my ability.
I am gone now til sunday, but will check in when I return.

    emoticon just worry about taking care of yourself and getting better, then and only then can you refocus on the goals you have set for this round.

You are doing great and have seen a loss, maybe not what you wanted, but a loss still the same. Hang in there
