Time for an update on my weight loss. I am so proud of myself. Other than going off plan for Thanksgiving I have stuck very close to the “rules.” I have completely given up my sweet tea which is a big deal for me. I only drink water, except for my night time meds that I take with 2 oz. apple juice. I won’t lie and say it was easy because it wasn’t. Drinking water all day sucks.
On the 14th I went in for my pellet insertion for the Hormone Replacement Therapy. The only thing that hurt at the time of insertion was the needle of lidocaine to numb the area where the pellets would be inserted. I didn’t feel them go in, but boy I felt them over the next few days. I didn’t think my rear would ever quit hurting. By the end of the month I could tell a little difference in some things, but we will have to wait till my six-week follow up to see how the numbers change on my blood work.
My last weekly appointment for weigh in was on the 25th and in the last month I have lost 11 pounds. If I can stay on this track, I will exceed my goal in 9 months. I know some months will be harder than others and I know it will not be easy doing this, but I am determined.
I asked my husband if I met my goal what would I get? A cruise? He said, “you should be happy with good health.” Definitely not what I wanted to hear. I’ll just go on a cruise without him and then he’ll wish he had jumped on board with me in this journey.
