Down Another 1.4 Pounds This Week!

Friday, October 12, 2012

I'm pleased but also disappointed. My allergist put me on antibiotics and steroids for fluid in the sinus yesterday. (The inside of my nose was so swollen and red that I couldn't breathe) I gained .6 pounds over night. I weighed .6 pounds lower in the doctor's office yesterday before taking my medicine. I am pleased that I lost 1.4 pounds this week, but I worked out, measured, tracked and stayed in my range every day. I

I'll be patient and wait it out. It usually takes me forever to shed steroid weight (I'm hypothyroid) but I don't have much choice. As it is, the doctor cut my dose down to 4 days because I didn't want to take them at all. My health is more important than the number on the scale. I hope those antibiotics won't add to the problem too!

Since this isn't a diet but a way of life, the waiting game is on my side. It isn't a sprint either but a slow, steady, healthy road to weight loss. This is just a small bump in the road. I will prevail!!!

    Yes, you will prevail. You have the right attitude and a sinus infection is no fun. Overall loss - how can you be disappointed? Do a happy dance and you'll feel better.
