Here's a picture of Murray B. (like Bill Murray) and I when he was just a baby. This picture isn't even a year old, but he now looks like a little man cat :( I'm one sad fur-momma.
Here's a recent picture.
I'll post tons of pictures if you haven't noticed. Anyways on to the blog post!
So I was trying to upload a vlog! It was the first time I've every done one and well I have given up. I've tried to upload is several times and it's just not working.
Anyways, I did go to the doctors yesterday. It went really well. He seemed please that both Adam and I are interested in the Optifast program. (Adam has changed his mind.) I'm fairly sure that I'm a bit more excited about it than he is, however, I'm glad he's interested in trying it. It will likely be much more successful if we both make the commitment.
I spoke with him about my legs and the swelling ... he was concerned. I saw first hand how bad they are after working. I did have about four hours between my shift at work and visit and they were still fairly puffy. My bottom number for my blood pressure was a bit high. Currently, he's got me on a water pill to help with both. In a week I will be having some blood work done for my sugar and cholesterol. Other than that things went very well. I have to be fitted for some support stockings and contact the local hospital make appointments for Adam and I for this weight loss program. All and all it went well enough that my Mom will switching her doctor as well.
As for coming back to sparkpeople I have been looking at everything all over again. Joined some new teams. Added some friends, but mostly I have just kept to myself. I worry that I may not stick around again and really want to wait it out a little and see how active I get in the next few weeks. I've had a few to many fall off the wagon attempts. And, that's not what I want this to be.
Last night Adam asked if we could go to the movies today. I'm feeling giddy about it .. like a little date day. YAY!
