9/3/2013 Slowly improving and looking forward
Tuesday, September 03, 2013
I switched to Pantoprazole and it is helping more than the generic prilosec. Also, I have stopped eating during the 3 hours before bed. I only notice the symptoms of silent reflux on waking and when I stray from my allowed foods. I am so motivated to slowly lose another 10 - 15 pounds and get off the medicine.
My knee gave me some real trouble with swelling and pain from riding my exercise bike, which has never been a problem before. The doctor thinks it's arthritis and recommended a knee wrap and icing after exercise. So I'm back doing my Jazzercise tapes and enjoying them. It helps to hang out with The Cats on the Summer Challenge.
Diana Nyad, at 60 years old, really inspires me to keep this up. I won't be swimming to Cuba, but I will be able to be my best.
