What's on your Tuesday menu?
Good mornin everyone.
Not much planned today other than I got an appointment with the pain clinic. Hopefully this time I'll find a med that'll help more. Not too confident that I will but it's possible...I feel like a squeaky basket at Walmart that no one really can get it to stop. I figure I'll have to make an appointment with my neurosurgeon after this visit. Who knows.
QOTD: what's your favorite season and why?
late fall or winter for me. Hear me out...my sinuses don't like the up and down a lot so I like it when it's one type of weather for a while. Here in my area though that rarely happens. I do love the end of fall and I love winter. It's easier for me to get warm than to try and get cool. I love winter clothing too...LOL
B: banana and a PP shake
L: PP shake
D PP shake
have a great day everyone!
Sometimes life is like sunshine and rainbows ... other times it's a big steaming pile of . . .well you know what.
Just keep swimming!
The section of the country where I live has so much cloud cover that it was used as the location for many ammunition factories during World War 2. We have many dreary days with lots of deep gray clouds even in summer.
In winter, it rare to have a sunny day with blue skies. The cold, dark, gray skies make seasonal depression the norm here. From labor day until memorial day, we just feel like life is on hold waiting for summer to return.
Winter in a location with little snowfall, sunshine and blue skies is a beautiful season.

I remember when we first moved from northern Ohio to North Carolina (in 1976) we were amazed at how sunny it was! We'd been living under thick cloud cover forever!! Wisconsin, too, is so much sunnier than northern Ohio. I don't know how we stood it - although I guess we were just used to it, so we didn't notice it much until we were away from it.
I had a similar experience when I moved from the mountains of western NC (the second place I lived in NC - first place was Raleigh) and moved to Wisconsin. Right away I noticed how big the sky was, and how light everything was. I didn't realize that mountains blocked out some of the sunlight. Plus a noticeable chunk of the sky, too. Now when I go back to visit my brother, I notice it's not as light - and the mountains feel claustrophobic (at times...). Never noticed that at all when I was living there.

QOTD. Must be summer, which is endless. We have two seasons summer and January where we get a day when it is 60 early in the morning but is back up to 78 by noon. We do have seasons but the are wet and dry, lol. The vegetation does change in subtle ways.
menu. Don't know. I am off to physical therapy in a few minutes. If they don't cripple me, I need to go to the grocery store. Finally the scale is moving again. I am just 3 months out, but I seem to have a week long stall every month, but when the needle starts to move again, it drops fast. Lost 5 pounds of scale weight in two days. I could see it in my clothes first.
I work with the bariatric surgeons (and had RNY also). When I conduct a follow-up with patients who state that they have a weight stall I have to tell them it is not considered a actual stall unless the scale does n't budge for 1 month AND they have no body contour changes for 1 month. Some people will have a decrease in their hips and waist (indicating fat loss) but no change in the scale. Do you measure your hips and waist?
I know this sounds good in theory but I know I watch the scale and would be freaking out if it didn't go down, but that is what the surgeons and dieticians tell us.
