Life changes

Monday, August 13, 2018

Man, my reward trip is coming up so quickly. It's 2 months and 2 weeks away. That means 2 months, 2 weeks until I see my friend, and 2 months 3 weeks until I see my sister. I started at 245 and now I'm at 168. I was at 164 but with a med change it caused weight gain (more in a min on that). 115 doesn't seem so far away as long as I just keep moving. I have switched work schedules so I can get gym time in where I wasn't before. It feels so nice to get in again. It will really help my stress where work is concerned. Cheslie finally got her summer shave down and Iris her teeth cleaned. Having them both be anesthetized at the same time gave me serious anxiety and was in panic attack off and on through the day. It wasn't serious, but you never know what could happen. My cats are my life and my heart. I found out recently that I'm anemic again, and that I have ADD or ADHD (I don't remember what my doctor said). I started medication for it yesterday and it seems to help. The anemia I have to wait until the 23rd to see what's up with it. My cholesterol levels are great my doctor said so will see if I still have to take med in September when I see the endocrinologist. If I don't my total meds taken regularly will be 3 vs. the 8 I was taking. My endometriosis is raging and my regular med for it isn't working like it should. Another med to help control it was added and I started to gain weight (I wasn't eating as good as I should, or getting gym time but lots of cardio in) so I'm going to switch to a new med soon. So I never really realized how much my depression medication really helped with my impulse control (especially food related) until recently when it switched dosage and the cost went up so had to wait. The new medication for the ADD/ADHD suppresses appetite so that should help too, just need to make sure I am getting my calories in. I got to see friends this past week I haven't seen in months and more I haven't seen in a year or so. It made my whole week. I loved getting to see all of them and I miss them more than anything, but it is motivation to do upkeep to see them. Glad to be back to tracking and moving, doing better as a whole. The overtime I am racking up will help my trip money nicely. I miss my cats and I worry about them but it will work out for the best.
