Drugs, dragging, doctors & dancing!

My health & weight loss journal

Thank you for stopping by and catching up on my health and weight loss. Things have been pretty interesting around here since I started my new meds last Tuesday night (or was it Thursday?). If you remember, I had an appointment at the VA hospital and I was very happy that things went well. I have a treatment plan for my fibro and it's going great.

I take four different pills (not including vitamins): two three times a day, one twice a day and one once a day... uh, I think I got that right, but I am sure you get the idea. Besides feeling a little drugged up as my body adjusts to the pills, I am quite happy that I have less pain (notice I didn't say no pain!) and surprisingly my tolerance and patience has improved. I would say that makes it all worth it.

My appointment for the physical therapist is this month and I have a couple of other appointments to make so the treatment plan is underway! Yippee!! (Join me as I do a little dance!)

Now if I could only figure out how to get a good night's sleep all would be right with the world.

As far as my weight goes... (insert sigh here) it hasn't went down, but I guess I shouldn't complain because it hasn't went up either (insert smile here). I have about 45 days to meet my goal so I should either exercise like crazy or give it up. I guess this is about where my body would stay naturally without regular exercise. I'd like to meet my goal, but I currently don't feel like putting in the work.

I am hoping to get a little boost of energy, resolve, pull-up-the-bootstraps-type mentally sometime soon! Otherwise I'll just have to be content with my current cuteness! :D

Now that you're all caught up with me, what's going on with you?
