Well, seems the hospital stay was good for something…. (Accountability)
Posted February 15, 2013
Went to my first weigh-in since the hospital, and I’m happy I did. I’m down 9.4 lbs, for a new weight of 231. That means I have less than 100 lbs to go to get to goal! When I got home, I added another little black rubber bracelet to the collection on my right wrist. (I won’t add charm to my charm bracelet until I get to where I was before I backslid.)
I am munching on a fruit salad as I write, having shared a humongous omelet with the ex and the roomie earlier.
I aw my Primary Care Provider yesterday, and he is, overall, pleased with my progress. I am delighted with the Furosemide, which has eliminated the edema in my ankles. The doctor says we have to monitor it for a while, to make sure it isn’t damaging my kidneys, but other than that, he has no problem with me staying on it for a while. (He knows how much I hate it when my ankles swell.)
I also reset my ActiveLink today. I’m not sure why it was giving me so little response, so I decided to do a reassessment, and go from there. We shall see what happens.
Anyway, that’s about it for the moment. I have a ton of work to do this weekend (which is good, if a bit terrifying), and I must get to it.
