I'm thinking of picking up some ankle weights to wear while at work. I think you would use more calories just going about your normal routines with those. Any thoughts on that?
Congratulations!

Unfortunately, the upper floor's stairwells are not traveled as heavily as the lower floors...I wouldn't want to pitch over up there. I do walk the stairs from the lower Parking level to the 3rd floor where the Heart Institute is...that's 5 flights.

I dropped the "brat dog" off with the friend who will be "doggy sitting" the brat dog while I'm away (half the time at her house, half the time at mine). She said, "OMG, you are so skinny!" I haven't been called "skinny" since I was 21 years old. I loved it! Of course, she was walking behind me--and I never have had a butt...and maybe the rain was blurring her vision...

I thought I would post this video as inspiration. George Takei was born in 1937, he's 73 years old!

a great big thanks, taxy, for the best feelgood video i've seen in ages!! so much going on here: a big YaY for physical fitness and sex appeal at any age, gay relationship recognition--a nod and smile to our growing inclusiveness as a people, a reminder of wwII internment of american-japanese in the u.s., and our need to appreciate and celebrate our shared human heritage....

i replayed this clip several times, and haven't stopped smiling yet.

I have not been gaining or losing weight, just staying the same. Not much of an appetite. Especially meat has no appeal to me at all. For some reason it seems to make dh angry that I do not care to eat meat, I figure it's his problem, not mine, but makes for some tense meals at times.

Staying the same can be a good thing !

As for the meat ... I wouldn't worry about that much at all.

In time you will re-acquire a taste for it .. in the meantime just be sure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need.

Tell DH that just means there is more for him !

Now, SB, you just concentrate on healing! Losing weight will come. Tell DH to take a hike. Eat what makes you feel good, if he wants to make you some comfort food like mac and cheese, let him do it. {{{hugs}}}
