Feel Like a YoYo

Thursday, September 06, 2012

First i lose a pound the next week i gain three. i feel just like a yoyo; up and down i go. My daughter thinks it must be water weight. Someone from a church i went to last night noticed my one ankle was swelled. It is the one which has varicose veins in it. I drink 10 to 12 glasses of water a day. I think it is the sodium intake doing it. It has been high for 3 or 4 days now. Guess i will have to watch what foods we eat and watch the sodium in recipes more closely. The instructor said that i have been doing well in class and that if i felt I did my best to let it go or something like that. I sent her the essay to look at and compare. If the instructor says i am doing well and the tutor thought I did a good job on the essay then the reviewer has a problem. I am not doing anything until I hear from her. i am angered at surgeons and doctors who don't want to listen to reason and expect my daughter to suffer with pain until she loses more weight! What a bunch of hog wash!!! She calls me a mama bear because of how protective i get and i do. I don't want her to be in pain all the time. Yet they don't want to help; they keep preaching to her about diet and exercise! For heaven's sake she has been doing it for over three years! If it were me i would get a second opinion!

    Don't feel bad on the mama bear thing, I am too times 3. Maybe a second opinion couldn't hurt. But these days they all seem to say( less weight) The 1 thing that I think is funny is if they or there nurses are heavy and then they tell you to lose. Them same goes for smoking. I don't understand why they can't be nicer and more understanding when they can see how much work has already been done, well I guess that's just me. Well good luck and hope you have a good weekend emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    A second opinion couldn't hurt, but be prepared for all of them to say "lose the weight". It's easy for them to say...they don't have to do it.
