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.
