First, this will be the last time I give a ‘Day x’ nomer to all of this. It’s just I’m a day over 2 weeks in, so I thought I’d note that. I’ll be weighing Saturday mornings and updating at that time from now on (here.)
I’m down 8.0 lbs. Not too shabby! I’m still 100% chocolate and dessert free. Very low sugar. I was able to eat 2 salads, one with romaine, one with baby spinach leaves as their base, and not suffer any UC (ulcerative colitis) effects, so that is a MAJOR great thing! The goal is still 2 lbs. loss per week. I’ve been plagued by equilibrium problems this week, (so bad that hubby had to drive me to/from work 2 days)…so exercising is off the table, but I’m still planning to start back up (slowly) within the next day or two, if the symptoms subside. I get this a couple of times a year, no biggie. Overall, already my jeans are feeling a little looser, tops fit better, and I’m feeling much better about myself. No real temptations I couldn’t easily ignore, and so things are going as good on the weight loss front as I could hope for. 🙂
Glad you guys so resoundingly loved the puppy and bunny posts. I think I’m going to pop them on my menu bar as a quick way to move away from any potential political angst or any other stress. 🙂 There will be more posts like that to come. I’m already collecting pictures. LOL
Weather-wise, it’s been amazing, although we know this portends another drought starting. It’s been 75-80 for over a week now, and no end in sight. Literally. Here’s the forecast for my city for the next two weeks:
|DESCRIPTION||HIGH / LOW||PRECIP||WIND||HUMIDITY|
Have a great weekend!!
ETA: since I’ve already been asked once, and I realize I shouldn’t expounded, here is what usually causes this equilibrium issues for me: usually it’s from bending over too fast either to pat or pick up my chihuahua, although some times it’s from gardening. In the past, it’s also been from losing enough weight that I can slightly decrease my bp medication dosage. I don’t think 7-8 lbs. is quite enough, but if this doesn’t depart soon, I might start slivering one dose for a few days to see if that helps. 🙂
