Trying to get back on track.

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

So I have been a bit of a slacker the last couple weeks with logging in and keeping track on the site. I have, however, still been tracking my weight and trying to be good. I guess I got discouraged about two weeks ago when my medication for my knee changed. I was put on a steroid to help control the pain and up went my weight. I know it was mostly retaining water, but still frustrating. Today I had another appointment and since the medication really wasn't working he decided to go with a cortisone shot. I am hopeful that it will help so I can get back to normal.
So I am up from where I was, but it is only a couple pounds. Maybe I will be able to move more now. After another appointment in 2 weeks my physical therapist wants me to ask about "work hardening". Which will get me ready to go back to work.

So I am making it a priority to get back in logging in everyday and logging my food and the little bit of exercise that I can do.

On a positive note, I can now go up and down the stairs correctly about half of the day now (I live in a 2 story house). That is a major improvement from 2 weeks ago.

    Hang in there, Chica.

    One thing that helps me sometimes feel better about water retention is to look at the % fat estimate on my scale. It's hydration-dependent, so fluctuations are really due to water, not magic fat loss.
