I love that I have lost the weight...Some days more so than others. I went for my check-up at the doctor's and before I went I realized I was only at eleven weeks and thought hmmmm I may have lost to much weight for him....so I put a brick in my purse..lol for weigh-in. I weighed with my heavy coat and the 'purse' and it added up to another ten pounds...lol I know SOOoo wrong! But it made me feel better and I couldn't stop grinning.

You are looking great! Amazing progress! I love the post about the weight equivalents, 36 lbs doesn't seem like a whole lot when you need to lose as much as I do, until I think about the fact that I've lost the entire weight of my 6 year old niece! I hope you had a Merry Christmas.

I had outpatient surgery on my right foot Monday and I am now in some serious pain. Hopefully it will start feeling better soon. I am going to try to get to 165 this month and 140 by June.

Do you do a fast day once a week?

Only when my weight stays the same for two or more days or goes up; or just not hungry.

Well, after my foot surgery last Monday, I have been having some issues. I went to the doc for check up this Monday because it was red and swollen twice the size of normal. Doc said no infection just a reaction from the phenol. Well yesterday when I changed the bandages my toes were worse. Swollen yes and encompassed inside of a huge blister. So went to doc today his words "This is not a normal reaction, I just want you to know this is not normal." So I am now on two antibiotics and a foot brace and no walking except to the bathroom for a week. What's my dh say when I tell him - "That's really putting me in a bind. What ...I am supposed to take my brother to work at night and then get up and take are daughter to school!" Uhh...yeah for a week, I think you will survive. I must love him or ...'POW, right to the Moon!' I mean really, I could possibly lose my toes over this and his concern is him. Mostly my fault though because #1 I have Lupus and know I am supposed to go on steroids and antibiotics even before dental work, but forgot to mention it to the podiatrist. #2 Doc had said no walking for four days after the surgery and because I did not want to go through this crap with my husband, I continued to run errands and drive and cook and clean as normal, even scraped the ceiling for a crack repair because he didn't have time to do it when he got home (didn't want to do it). So this time I will follow docs orders and not move unless I have to go to the bathroom.

Oh Missy, best to listen to the doctor. I know it can create havoc at home, but you don't want this to get further out of hand. I would have powed him to the moon as well!! I wish you had a better support system at home. Sounds like you have to struggle to keep the peace. I hope it gets better.
