I have a bunch of random stuff in my head so here it goes. Sit down, its going to be a bumpy ride.
I have lost 6 pounds in less than 2 weeks. I feel great! Somehow all the things I was struggling with are just gone right now. No severe sugar cravings, I'm sleeping better, my GI tract is functioning better, I just FEEL better.
I have been on a medication called Gabapentin (Nuerontin) for several years. It helps with nerve pain from bulged discs. It is also supposed to help with menopause symptoms. The other day, I ran out. I went 2 days without it, noticed I was not in any more pain then usual, filled my prescription and then as an experiment, decided to not take it. Its been about 6 days and I feel so much better. I think it was actually making everything worse! I was on it when I first lost weight 3 years ago. But I think because of my hormones, things have changed.
My plan is to stay off of it! Yea me!
When I read your comments, even if I don't have time to answer, I just feel so blessed. I do not use that word lightly. So many of you have been with me since day 1, some came on board later but you all ,mean so much to me. I truly know I have a place where I can always come no matter what's going on. It means so much to me, please know that.
There are many things I am looking forward to like, losing weight, inches and gaining health. I'm looking forward to my daughters wedding one year from today!
I really feel a shift and an appreciation for life, love, friendships, health and family that has been missing for a while. I think I was sliding back into that darker, isolated place where I used to live and I'm glad to be fighting my way back.
You're all a big reason for that. So Thank you.
This weekend my plans include the movies STAR TREK, going to a race (No NACHO'S) and planning so that I can be prepared and stay on track. It worked last weekend I should be able to manage it this weekend too. IT is NOT A LICENSE TO EAT LIKE A WOLF!
Have a great weekend everyone!!
