Gave Up.

Saturday, February 01, 2014

Here's a picture of Murray B. (like Bill Murray) and I when he was just a baby. This picture isn't even a year old, but he now looks like a little man cat :( I'm one sad fur-momma.

Here's a recent picture.

I'll post tons of pictures if you haven't noticed. Anyways on to the blog post!

So I was trying to upload a vlog! It was the first time I've every done one and well I have given up. I've tried to upload is several times and it's just not working.

Anyways, I did go to the doctors yesterday. It went really well. He seemed please that both Adam and I are interested in the Optifast program. (Adam has changed his mind.) I'm fairly sure that I'm a bit more excited about it than he is, however, I'm glad he's interested in trying it. It will likely be much more successful if we both make the commitment.

I spoke with him about my legs and the swelling ... he was concerned. I saw first hand how bad they are after working. I did have about four hours between my shift at work and visit and they were still fairly puffy. My bottom number for my blood pressure was a bit high. Currently, he's got me on a water pill to help with both. In a week I will be having some blood work done for my sugar and cholesterol. Other than that things went very well. I have to be fitted for some support stockings and contact the local hospital make appointments for Adam and I for this weight loss program. All and all it went well enough that my Mom will switching her doctor as well.


As for coming back to sparkpeople I have been looking at everything all over again. Joined some new teams. Added some friends, but mostly I have just kept to myself. I worry that I may not stick around again and really want to wait it out a little and see how active I get in the next few weeks. I've had a few to many fall off the wagon attempts. And, that's not what I want this to be.

Last night Adam asked if we could go to the movies today. I'm feeling giddy about it .. like a little date day. YAY!

    Beautiful cat, young or old. Nice to have a partner's help but don't underestimate what you can do on your own.

    I'm on day 3 of Optifast and I can't complain. I lost 3 lbs in 3 days. Ultimately I need to lose about 90 lbs total. I have stuck to it and have had no cravings at all. Give it a try if you can! Good Luck!

    Cats are a little like kids - they practically change before your eyes from babies to young adults!

    Probably smart to take things slow and figure out what works for YOU. It's easy to get committed to a lot of things, only to discover they aren't really helping you with your journey. And your healthy lifestyle journey is what its all about!
