Tuesday, June 19, 2018      3 comments

So I had a f/u for my MRI I had last week. I thought for sure he was going to say I was doing well enough to not need the surgery. But, the MRI still showed the tear and scar tissue and he pressed on a place on my knee and man did it hurt like c... Read more

Had a GREAT, if short, visit with the dietitian! It was very easy to see what the problem is as to why I'm not losing weight like I should be. For one, I'm not drinking enough water, I need to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Really push fluids.... Read more

Wonderful news! The dog trainer, Oliver, thinks that our dog, Pickles, can be trained out of his bad behavior! But, a doggie boot camp is what she recommended. We had been thinking of that, but it is expensive. Must get it done before I get my p... Read more

Was feeling down because I've only lost a pound when I feel like I should have lost more (crazy, right?), so I went ahead and got my measurements. I'm working on week three since my surgery and I've already lost 2.25 inches off of my waist and 2... Read more

I had a marvelous Monday yesterday! I had plenty of energy, got a lot done, and it felt great to do! Today I'm praying for the same thing (though I'm sure it would be better if I was not up last night at 1:30 AM!) This morning so far has been go... Read more

Wow, I took a much longer nap than I expected to. I think I needed it though, so it's okay. Healing takes time and rest, so must not leave the rest part out. I'm healing nicely, btw. I'm not able to bend to touch my toes yet (I can but it hurts)... Read more
