25 lbs thinner

Monday, February 02, 2009

I've been at a plateau for the last 2-3 weeks and finally broke the barrier of 25lbs. I've been trying to break my weight into 5lb increments so it does not seem so mindboggling to lose the 90 lbs I set for myself. Today I am sick with bronchitis and had to go on a prednisone(steroid) pack with an antibiotic. I'm hoping it does not make me gain, but plan to really stick with my plan to avoid the increased appetiet.

    Thanks everyone.
    My doc always prescribes a methydose pack on top of antibiotics. My lungs get so tight and the prednisone opens them up. I not ashmatic til I get a respiratory infection.

    Plateau? Melody...you have been losing weight gung-ho since you started! You are just amazing!

    That's what I do too, 5 pound increments are much more reachable!

    Keep on keeping on! emoticon emoticon

    prednisone for bronchitis? That's a new one to me! Just remember, if you do gain..it's not really weight with prednisone, its fluid retention! So hang in there and get to feeling better soon! emoticon

    WOOHOO! Congrats on the 25lbs loss. I hope you feel better soon and if you do have a little bit of gain because of meds it'll come right back off.
