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'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
