Week 12

Thursday, September 29, 2016

Wowzers, What a week! Things have sure been hectic but at the same time productive.Took my mom to the doctor because her depression and pain are off the charts. She is having major trouble with her left knee and hip on top of everything else we are dealing with. I am so thankful that she is living in an adult care facility because I am not sure we could do this all on our own. At least her doctor is getting things done, waiting for the xrays and blood tests to come back. I found out something that I did not know from him. A low thyroid and low B12 can cause depression to get worse which is probably why I am taking extra B12 since surgery.

Now onto the good stuff! We have taken a couple days of rest this week from all the work around the house because we are at a stand still on the downstairs renovation. We did finish our laundry room and it looks FAAAAAAAABULOUS! Will be getting the materials we need to finish doorways, nook and then paint the nook and the kitchen and then the only thing left to do will be the office. Time to start planning for the outside house painting and rebuilding of the shed for next summer! I am thrilled That I lost another 4 pounds this week and another 1 1/2 inches from my waist! I also realized that I am now only 90 pounds away from my goal weight!!!!

    Awesome progress. Boy you sure have been busy. I agree with the thyroid/depression issue as I have been dealing with that for years .... but every day is getting easier.

    I am sending up prayers for your mom. Hope things get better for her.

    Wow you are doing so well. If I go with my initial goal I am also 90 pounds away but I may shoot for lower. Have to wait and see how I look feel. I think that is the biggest thing to measure is how do you feel and what is your quality of life.

    It sure has been fun watching your journey as we travel the road together.
