Will Be Back In July

Monday, June 20, 2016




I did not plan on being gone this long, but my health took a turn for the worse. My thryoid has been bouncing around and the Doctor has not been able to get it under control. I am going from hypo to hyper. Right now it takes all I can to go from one room to another because I am so exhausted and it is even hard to breathe sometimes. I think maybe some of the medication I took for my knee did something to my body that made my thryoid go crazy. I have been hypo for over 35 years and this is the third time something has happen like this.

I have another appointment next week and I know that she will change the meds again. I will be going on an entirely different med, so really hoping that it works.

My birthday was the end of May and I got a nice surprise from the family. A new blog theme. Looks nice doesn't it.

As soon as I get well I will be posting again and I have all kinds of projects I want to do. When you are just sitting around you can think of a lot of things  you want to do.  HA! HA!






Taking a Little Break

Monday, May 9, 2016




 I am taking a little break from blogging. Not long, maybe a week or two. My bursitis in the knee got worse and I had to go to the Doctor and she drained the knee of some fluid that was in it. So now I am just going to take my pain meds and get some rest.  I actually feel like I have been getting too much rest lately, but now I really have to listen to the Doctor.

                         

Weightloss Mondays

Monday, May 2, 2016


I guess you can tell how much I lost by the picture above. Yes, I lost one pound and I am happy. As I said before this is a long journey and there will be weeks I can lose more and weeks I will not lose. This past week was a loss and I am happy.

I was not able to exercise as much as I wanted. A few days ago I woke up with a painful knee and it seems it wants to stay. I am thinking it is my Bursitis coming back. I had it a few years ago and it went away. I am hoping it is not, but time will tell.

Why is it when you get older you have to be careful of everything when it comes to your body. If there is one piece of advice I can give to you younger people is to lose the fat when you are young. It is so hard to lose it when you get alot older.

I am going back to sitting on the couch with a heating pad on my knee and hopefully it will get  better soon. Last week it was the ice pack.  At least I can get some reading and sewing done while resting my knee.
