Congratulations on the weight loss. I hope the results of the MRI are good.

Remember the stall I was worried about! Had my MRI yesterday...the dye injection that was supposed to be painless wasn't due to frozen shoulder and pre swelling. All and all the MRI was fine and they gave me very little...about the equivalent to a shot of alcohol. Anyway the good news is...I lost 2 pounds overnight! WOO HOO!

Doing it again! See my other SP forkitless.

Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

Your scale sounds like Hal in 2001 - A Space Odyssey. LOL.

Mort- b b but I have a new glass scale and it has blue lights and it softly calls my name when i enter the bathroom! It likes me and I want to keep it happy!

Carb-May I steal your quotes? I love them!

The scale gives that instant gratification and can be so addictive.

Good luck with the MRI. You are far braver than I.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

I think most of us tend to be slaves to the scale though we shouldn't be.

Thanks everyone! It's on the 19th...think about me!

As far as my diet...it IS a lifestyle change! I just am addicted to seeing the scale move. LOL.

I can relate to the MRI problem. They need to do something about the feeling of being put in a tube. I panicked as well and had to talk myself down to get through it.

Get through your test, stick to your plan and don't give it another thought.....it's a lifestyle change and things will happen.


We all have things that happen and it is better to pick up and keep going.

The one time dose will not make you stall. If you had to do any muscle relaxant or pain med on a regular basis then yes it can slug down the metabolism but again this does not happen with every individual.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

It's hard to say if it will cause a stall. It's a muscle relaxer, so your intestines will probably slow down for a day or two. You could take some extra magnesium to counter that. You'll have to let us know how it goes. I would think the stress would hamper your weight loss more. At least that's the way my body reacts. Good luck!!!

I have to have ANOTHER MRI and this time they are giving me a valum iv. Seems holding breath and hyperventaling are not good for a MRI.

Anyway...I have been pleased with my weekly weightloss and don't look forward to a stall. Do you think it will? Of course I won't be eating corectly that day either. I probably wont get enough food before and then I will more than likely sleep the rest of the day.
