Well this weeks been difficult -lots of fluid, breathlessness and pain meant exercise is down (although still happening). I'm putting on 14 lb in a day and then losing it in a day and then back on so I think I'll leave the scale alone this next couple of weeks -it's just toooooo discouraging. Been cutting smokes down and been depressed too. Only ate the wrong thing once this week though. Meds changed again. Blood pressure goptin doubled, taken off Valpro (YES) and upped respiradol-doubled. Hopefully this fluid 'll be brought into line now.

    I am sorry you have had such a rough week. I agree with KITEFLYINGAL, don't worry about the scales for a while. It is also a very stressful thing when you try to cut down or quit smoking. I smoked for over 30 years and finally had my last cigarette on June 13, 2005. I don't know why I was able to do it then and not the other 3000 times I tried before. I did do one thing different, I joined the Quit Smoking group on American Lung Association site. It had message boards so you could talk to others trying to quit also, so they understood what you were going through. Somewhere at the beginning when I joined I read that it was a non-smoking site so I tried to take that seriously and would leave my cigarettes in another room when I was on the computer. I was able to be on the computer longer and longer as I went along. Now my husband got upset that I was on the computer so much...kind of like now with SparkPeople...but I just told him I had to do it for me. Is there a team here for people trying to cut down or quit smoking and lose weight? That would be nice to kind of have a combination of both.
    I do hope things get better for you. You were so nice to me when I first joined SparkPeople and I still appreciate that made me feel welcome.
