Good morning, afternoon, evening!!!
All is good in the neighborhood. I've gotten over the nonsense of my last doctors visit. I declare complete deliverance over this body of MINE!!! I need to make some changes, I need to lose weight and I need to keep my trust in God. I can do all of these things, I know I can.
I weighed in this morning and I'm still carrying water weight. I gained almost 12#s in 3 days. Amazing isn't it?! I took my first water pill late yesterday so it'll take a few days for the fluids to release. I have to hold off on taking one today until this evening as I'll be travelling for at least 6 hours. I'm not driving so I hate to inconvenience everyone else with my frequent need to use the bathroom. So I'll wait. I can even see the fluid build up in my legs when I took off my socks this morning. I expect to hear from my doctor between today and Monday. Usually blood work comes back within 2 days. But ... once I come back from this trip to my niece graduation I'm planning to go full speed ahead. It's time to get back to basics. Tracking, water consumption, workouts, eating, dropping foods from my regimen. I've been lack in my tracking but as of Monday no more excuses.
It's the tracking that works and it's the tracking that I get lazy with. This is one reason I'm seriously considering weight watchers again. It's worked for me in the past and I understand there's some new apps for your cell phone that work really well. I don't plan to go to meetings but do the online approach. I did that before and it works just about like sparkpeople. By the time I return from my mini vacay I will have decided.
I'll be in touch as I'm taking my laptop with me so keep up the fantastic work that I know you all are doing. Thanks always for your prayers and words of encouragement.
