Not doing too well

Wednesday, September 02, 2015      9 comments

I haven't updated here in a bit but I haven't given up. My stomach problems wound up being a partial intestinal blockage caused by a new medicine I was taking. I'm on treatment for it but it's slow going and awful. :( No progress on my wei... Read more

Weigh in day! Yay! I'm excited to report that I am down 1.1 pounds this week, to 170.2! This has been a somewhat rough week physically, though. I started off with power walks that went really well and included a little jogging. Three days in I ... Read more

Weigh in day! Last week I was 171.5 This week I was 171.3, so I am down .2 That's not a huge amount of weight but as long as the scale goes in the right direction I'm not too picky on how fast I get there. Just keep pushing towards my goal. :) ... Read more

I had a really amazing weekend. Friday night my husband came home and we decided to go downtown for a festival that was going on. We wandered around downtown for about three and a half hours at our own pace, taking breaks when we needed to, etc.... Read more

I've really regrouped since weigh-in day and I've started putting in much more effort during my walks. I've been moving a lot more briskly despite this heat. I'm starting to figure out what my body can handle. It's tough finding that sweet spot ... Read more

Damn. :( I guess this month just was not my month! ALL of my measurements went up, except for my neck which somehow lost a quarter inch. :( I also gained two pounds! I started the month off strongly with lots of swimming and walking. Unfortuna... Read more

My surgery to put in a power port waa rougher than expected. I spent three days on the couch (per my doctor's orders) and last night I went on my first walk since the surgery. It was really short (only about 1200 steps according to my pedometer)... Read more

I'm having surgery Monday morning to have a portacath put in so that my infisions for my POTS will be easier. My veins are totally shot. :( I'm a little nervous about the surgery but otherwise hoping it is a quick recovery so I can get back to m... Read more

About a week ago my husband and me bought passes at the local rec center for the pool for a month. It is open until 8:30 most nights, so this has been a great way to get in a bit more activity indoors when it is too stormy (we get a lot of light... Read more

Since I still am really not losing much weight I decided to switch to monthly weigh ins and measurements, until I get off my steroid, anyway. I have no idea when that will be. Anyway, this month was good. Down 2 pounds to 169.5 :) My... Read more

No weigh in this week, thanks to TOM. But I did have a pretty good week. Thursdays are grocery nights in this house and I didn't need to use my wheelchair at all this week. I do admit, that I did have a very hard time in the last store and nee... Read more

I walked 3 Miles Yesterday

Monday, June 01, 2015      3 comments

I have no idea when the last time I managed that all at once was. Definitely not within the last year. After I got my infusion Saturday morning I had so much energy that I walked with my husband. We thought I would walk down one or two streets a... Read more

Changing My Weigh In Day

Friday, May 29, 2015      1 comments

I've been weighing in on Wed mornings, but since I have started weekly IV treatments for my POTS I have decided to move my weigh in day to Friday. I go for treatment Saturdays so I should be less water-logged on Friday. I seem to start the week ... Read more
