Thought I'd give an update. Once again the CD with the mri wouldn't open so the surgeon is taking it home to view on his PC. He is sure I'll at least have a decompression surgery ton the lower back. Once he views it he said he wouldn't be surprised if it also turns into a fusion on one disc.


Tentatively scheduled for the 15th of April.

really depressed but at least it should help with the pain.

and how i can or cannot tolerate it..

Thank you though and have a WONDERFUL VALENTINES DAY!

You are less than a month out from surgery. Most people lose a lot of weight in the first few weeks, stall at week 3, then slow to a pound or so per week. "Your weight loss so far" will not continue, especially if you're eating chocolate.

Complacency at less than three weeks is a HUGE red flag. You'll need to work hard and follow your surgeon's guidelines all the way until goal.

Your sleeve is tiny and needs to be filled with protein first and foremost. Most folks wouldn't dream of having candy until well after they've reached goal.

Pistachio walnut oil and sea salt sounds devine. I would live that.

I like "low hanging fruit" and "synergy". I could create a buzzword bingo card and probably win at every single meeting I attend...

I use an arm & hammer type of friction defense. I don't usually need it in that area- but the Pants I had on had an unusually short inseam.

Eww saddle sores are the worst? Do you use bodyglide? I found that helps a bunch!

Hi all and happy Monday! Doing well so far this morning, preschool is closed so my kiddo is staying with my mom. "Nana" has been texting me updates all morning and they're having a great time together. When I dropped him off, he told me, "Today is a party just for Nana and Nolan! No mommies allowed! You need to go." Love it!

QOTD: I'm re-reading the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. I've also got a new stack of romance novels on my Kindle, courtesy of the local library, including stuff by Alyssa Cole and Ilona Andrews

Accountability: Yesterday, I did a 60 mile bike ride and burned about 3000 calories, and I only ate about 500 cal during the ride. So I totally went for some not-super-healthy choices after the ride. Namely, cheese ravioli with ricotta, and a big bowl of Doritos. Right back to regular food today, though, since that's a special case!

Chow:

  • Breakfast: Greek yogurt
  • Lunch: frozen Atkins scrambled egg bowl (saving half for tomorrow)
  • Snack: salad with FF poppyseed dressing
  • Dinner: chicken breast with cheese and salsa, frozen broccoli
  • Snack: protein bar?
  • Exercise: hitting the treadmill for a Couch to 5k session on my lunch break

It's my pool, they're all my swim lanes is a good response to that...I like watching them get that "wait, what" look on their face!
