Thanks for asking. No, my appointment is not until September 27th. We will see what she says. Yes, I am down to 154, so 9 more to go for my goal (even though my weight tracker starts at 161, I really started the program at 169, I was just not using the weight tracker). I am generally ok while on Advair. If I don't have it, I can immediately feel it. I had not have this happen to me before May of this year. So hopefully we can come up with a good treatment when I see the specialist. Do not be discouraged; just keep going. Some days it feels worse than others. But don't give up!

i cn see you are making progress on the weight and i am green with envy. this year is bad for people with breathing problems. have you seen the lung specialist yet. i meet with my dr on the 19 and may ask to see a pulminologist. time will tell. hang in there with the challenges the asthma offers and hopefully it will get better soon.

I am glad I found a team with others who also deal with the challenge of asthma.

I was diagnosed with asthma as an adult. I've been tested for all sorts of allergies, and my asthma is not triggered by any allergies for which a test exists. It used to be, I only had asthma flares when I had a URI, like a bad cold.

However, since May of this year, my asthma came and never left. Seems as if getting older is not helping and I went from having occasional asthma to not-very-well-controlled asthma. I am now on Advair in addition to my rescue inhaler, and my primary care doctor referred me to see a lung specialist. I have an appointment in September.

I am not letting this stop me, though. I returned to SP on June 25. I was weighing 169 lbs. then (yes, my weight tracker shows 161 as the start point because that is when I decided to start showing my progress), and am now at 158. I am more active, working out at least 5 days a week, sometimes 6. But the nagging coughing and the almost always present shortness of breath is annoying. So I am glad to be able to share and vent with others who may be in the same "boat" that I am.

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
