Trying to follow doctors suggestions

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

After lots of thought and, if I'm honest with myself and whats the point of doing all this if I'm not going to be honest....lots of stalling..

I've decided to take the appetite suppressant the dr suggested. I did as was required and got weighed and blood pressure taken today so am all set to start tomorrow. Part of me is excited and part is scared.

I'm also going to work on following the dr's suggestion to curb my workouts; maybe curb isn't the right word so much as working up to things and remember the weight I am putting on my joints and bones. I am also planning on going to a running store this weekend and have them tape me walking on the treadmill and recommend tennis shoes. I know it'll be expensive but I have also learned that it's worth it (too a point) to not be in pain. I used to wear walmart and payless shoes until the first time my stepmom bought me a pair of good shoes and OMG!! it made such a difference! I don't buy shoes as often now but when I do they are good shoes. lol In fact the last dress/work shoes I bought were 2 years ago.

For team weigh in this week my weight is up 2lbs..bleck!

My boss is driving me nuts at work!!! There are times I just really wish I could yell at her "Alright! Retire already!!! Geez..early 70's is old enough to enjoy yourself and stop working!!" Not like she needs the money...doesn't cash paychecks in a timely manner so I know that. Can be a sweat heart but we are from such different generations combined with the fact that she is a major control freak and always has to have her nose in everyones business gets old!

Time to get off of here and visit with my darling son before bedtime :)

    My son's been bugging me to get good walking shoes, since I'm "re"-starting my healthy lifestyle after backsliding for months. I told him, "ah, pooh, they're all the same". But he and his wife are long-distance runners and so healthy and in shape, and now you say you can actually feel a difference....I think I'll call my son and tell him to take me shoe shopping.

    Good luck on finding that little bit more of balance you seek!

    This might be just what you need to jump start the rest of your life!!!
    Medication is medication and if you need it, take it!
    I am happy to read that you have such a great plan for yourself.
    And you are so right, good shoes are worth the extra money.

    Good luck tomorrow, and all the tomorrows after that.

    Sorry about the stupid scale
    but I'm glad you're taking the Dr suggestion to pull back a little on intensity.
    Sometimes I think we want this all to happen so NOW that we are almost willing to be unhealthy to GET healthy. Patience is not easy.
    Keep us posted on the changes and how they're going. We're with you!
