Friday, March 21, 2014

I am doing better since the doctor put me on vitamin d i take 50,000 iu aweek i still get really tired easy and whatever i want to get done in the house i have to do it before 12 am . At this time i have no infection in my eyes PRAISE THE LORD but i weigh 196.4 lbs and a year ago i weighted 162 lbs after i loss 30 lbs here on spark and kept it off for 2 years but my meds slow my metabalism down and cause me to hold fluid . I haven't been taking my lasix because i feel even tireder when taking it but the water build up isn't good either. RA doctor talk to me about my weight because i told her it's hurting me she said being on 1200 to 1500 calories a day i should be losing but because i do no exercise my body has went into a starvation mode and won't give up the lbs so she told me to start walking 15 minutes aday then work up to 45 minutes aday . My heart doctor says NO EXERCISE AT ALL but i won't push it is i get chest pains i will quit till the next day i'm not sure how i can do this i know it has to be right after breakfast which up till noon i do pretty good . I have a leslie sommers walking tape which has 1 mile up to 5 miles on it and am going to try it for 1 month and see if it makes any difference like my dh said if i don't try the weight is taking my quality of life right now so i been praying about this for awhile and feel this is an answered prayer . Starting today i am going to use the dvd for 15 minutes a day till next friday and see how i do . Please pray for me because i need to get this weight off i am logging my food on spark and it's public not always the best choices but under 1500 calories most days . GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND WE CAN DO THIS WITH THE LORD'S HELP !

    That sounds like a good plan, and I'm glad you said you will listen to your body and take care of yourself. God is always good. emoticon
