Notes on a Wednesay

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Although my calories have not exceed the lowest minimum number (1200) and i have been trying (some days more successfully than others) to keep the nutrients proportions in balance...Yesterday when I weighed myself it said i had gained 2 pounds. I have no idea why. This is the same trouble i always have in my efforts to lose weight. The only time this DIDN'T happen was when I was doing heavy exercise....and then the numbers steadily dropped. Maybe it's because walking up and down hills and doing aerobics causes you to lose a lot of water ...so maybe I'm retaining water. I wonder what would happen if you were to drain the fluid out of all the areas where I am swollen with inflammation? I might lose 5 lbs!

This morning I played around with my breakfast options until i got what I wanted.. One slice of Dave's Killer 21 Grain thin-sliced bread (His thin-slice is about the regular slice of other breads but is only 60 calories. It's a hearty chewy bread and it lasts at least 2 weeks without drying out or molding. One top of that I had one large egg's white and 3 pieces of thin-sliced honey smoked turkey breast. I folded the bread over and made it into one thickish half sandwich. It was delicious, satisfying, and very low in calories.

I was behind the game this AM because I''d been up since midnight and ate several things over night..nothing too terrible (except a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich). I'm at 300 calories after breakfast..night and breakfast counted. I really want to be careful with my calories today because I will be eating out for lunch. I'm not sure where yet. I wish i knew so i could make educated selections by looking up the nutritional info online.

I'm going today to the medical ctr nearby (1 hour away) for a procedure that I'm praying will end the CONSTANT UTI's I've had for a year now. I was in the hospital for 4 days getting IV meds and that didn't even help for longer than 2 days. I'm not looking forward to this so please - if you think of it- I will be there beginning at 10:00.
May God bless your day and grant you new intimacy with him.

    Inflammation can lead to lots of excess water. Water weighs 9 lbs per gallon. Watch your salt intake and check with Beth about things to add to reduce inflammation.

    Keep your nutrition up and the scale will reflect the changes. Your body needs to adjust to the changes you are making and for some of us that takes time. Keep going. It gets easier just up ahead.

    Hope your procedure helps you get well.
