Week 103... Weigh in...

Saturday, January 25, 2014

Hi Everyone,

This week a loss yay

last week 77.3
this week 75.6

Loss 1.7 kgs

I ate more fish, added almonds in the morning, all the walking to relieve my back added to the loss.

Pain level has gone down a bit but I am still shaky and sore. It will just need time and I have plenty of that. I did 8 mins of an easy Zumba and was so tired...but was exhilarated too!!! Love that Zumba.
The Beach Boys have been my constant companions this week as I walk around, I even caught myself smiling. So win win...

I'm still going to tell the cardiologist I want to stop taking the med that still has side effects for me and hoping I'll stop being dizzy and toppling. It also will be great to be rid of the light sensitivity and the black lines in the morning- numerous black lines off every surface that move outwards for half an hour after waking.

I will also request proper pain relief from my GP "why have pain when you don't have to?" was what the Doctors in the hospital said to me, so I'll be asking and maybe an x-ray for my back just to allay my fears that it's not JUST muscle spasms.

Hope you all have a great week and get lots to smile at. Just look around and see it.

    emoticon on your weight loss. I hope your back pain issues get resolved. I found Drs can help some but nothing gets rid of my pain completely. Drs can help but walking helps me the most. I'm glad things are going better for you. I bet your glad to be doing Zumba again. The bitter cold here has kept me home from Zumba class. You motivate me to get back to it. emoticon
