Have not heard of it.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

230 lbs lost without surgery, crazy diets, diet products, or extreme exercise- so have hope!

DIZZY ..... My mother had a terrible case of shingles and her doctor sent her to a pharmacy that mixes its own meds. They created her a pain cream that helped with the pain and cut down on inflammation. Maybe your doctor knows of such a pharmacy too.....

Thank you! I am still taking an antiviral but at this point 17 days in, I don't even know if it still makes sense. But I'll keep taking it til I speak to the doctor.

Well, I'm glad that your system for relief, would help you a little bit anyway. Hang in there and we're rooting for you. If I remember right, the Dr. that was on call, gave me an antibiotic too, because of myself having a lower immunity, with having to be on meds., because of having Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Thank you, Seattle. The pain meds didn't help at all so finally I put calamine lotion on it and took some Benadryl. I'll be glad to see the pain doc though. At least he's acquainted with my nerves from prior procedures on them. So I'm hoping he'll know more than my GP did. It seems to be easier for druggies to buy pain meds on the street than for people in real pain to get adequate pain relief meds prescribed.

DizzyBritches, I'm feeling so much for you. I've definitely have had several hours of shingles. Medicine related or just plain ole' nerves. I found that Calamine lotion calmed it alot. It just seems that it's a virus that has to get through its course! I had my first bout with them, even before kindergarten!! Yes, I've been a nervous wreck from the beginning!! Good luck to you!!

DizzyBritches, by sympathy on your shingles. My mother had it. It is a terrible thing. I hope the Pain Doc can help you and it will be over soon.

Thanks, Starr. It's moved from a stinging pain to a deep itch that is impossible to scratch, because it hurts too much to even touch it. My pain doc apptmt cannot come soon enough.

Used a small plate last night to eat a some really good food I COOKED FRIOM SCRATCH. So pleased with myself.

Sorry about your problem with shingles. My sister reallly suffered from them a lot. Ditto for friends of mine.

My only consolation: the pain ends someday. Stay with it. You will survive, but you have a lot of sympathy from me.

I went over in calories yesterday. This shingles pain is really wearing on my nerves. I feel as if my skin and muscles are on fire even where there is no rash. Hopefully the pain doctor will be able to help when I see him on Tuesday.

I take liquid B12 as a supplement to give me energy. It works best in combination with other Bvitamins. The best one I've found is in a white box by Nature's Bounty and it's just a liquid b12 complex. I find it at Walgreens usually or Walmart or Amazon.

High caloric consumption today. Not all of it healthy. Need to go back and enter in tracking. emoticon

I am learning to follow what my fit bit tells me to eat.

2016 I will hit the gym 6/7 days a week. I will eat more protein, fruits and veggies. I will really cut back on the carbs.

I am going to give it a try: 2 days at 1500 calories, and three days at 1250.

I know I haven't been moving as much as I need to, so the weight should come down either way.

Funny how our bodies adjust to the level of calories we use all the time. I'll keep it guessing! emoticon

I had heard of that, but I have a greater comfort level with it now that you have mentioned it. I am losing okay but I will definitely keep it in mind if I plateau again!

To speed up weight loss when you stall out, you can do something called calorie cycling. Calorie cycling is when you eat on the high end of your calorie range for one to two days and on the low end for one to two days and repeat. It shakes up your metabolism.

Ask Your Doctor Before Making Any Supplement or Dietary Changes. Make sure it is safe for you to exercise.
