Addie, I am so glad you received good news about your daughter! That's wonderful!

My bypass surgery was quadruple with one failing afterward. I still do my exercising, but at my pace. People who don't know my story would say I am not exercising, but it is what I can do at the speed at which I can do it. That's why I prefer to exercise in my own home. No one judging me. One time when I was still working I was walking up the stairs and a man said "If you walk up the stairs any slower you will be going backwards." Within a week I was in the hospital. Sometimes people just don't realize what they're saying when they don't know the circumstances.

Addis I am so glad to hear about your daughter. That is wonderful news. I will keep her, and you in my prayers.

My new asthma medication is bloating me up and giving me no appetite. I am trying to eat healthy with my nutri blasts in the morning and protein with salads for the other two meals. But there is no point in weighing myself because of the bloating.

I am hoping to make it to the YMCA tomorrow to sign up. I am very excited about this step. I was more comfortable there than the rec centre

I'm excited for you too about the YMCA. You need to be where you are comfortable. If you wait awhile to weigh, I am sure you will see a difference even with the asthma meds messing things up. Good luck!

Deep water aerobics tonight. I stepped on the scale after class & it said that I gained 9 lbs in 2.5 days~! I sure hope that is not right! I ate some different foods & had a few extra drinks over the weekend but didn't think I had done that bad!!

I bet it's mostly water weight from all the wonderful food you had with salt in it. Flush yourself with plenty of water.

I suspect the scale might be off. You'd have to be eating constantly in order to gain that much in 2 days.

Try changing up your water with iced tea, any kind. I like hibiscus, Celestial Seasonings are all good. Any of it is a mild diuretic.

I believe you. You know you don't have to convince me. Have they become little mommas yet? I miss hearing about them and their activities. Please tell them I said "coo, coo." And please thank them for me for their concern and prayers.

SB, I go to Winthrop and the scales show 140#'s. I get home just an hour later and my scale says 145. I trust Winthrop more than my own. Don't get discouraged. Pick one scale and only take that one as your gospel scale. I would choose your doctor's scale. Just for the heck of it, ask you doctor how often he has his scale calibrated.
