Jun 02, 2009WOW! I can't believe it's been 3 whole months! What a ride it's been so far! My life has changed so much and I am looking forward to more and more to come.
Everything seemed to pretty much steadily get better after I returned to work at 6 weeks. I have had a few bad things happen (like ER visits) but I am hoping to stay 'normal' now for a while. I'm eating more and more...in fact, sometimes I worry about how much I can eat. I try to focus on good proteins first and then if I want some other things I try them. I have been a little bit afraid of some things (and some, for good reason!) and I haven't gone all out yet but I have slipped a few things in here and there to see how it goes. I am happy with my weightloss to this point. It definitely doesn't follow any type of pattern for me. I lost 45 the first month, then 5 the second month and 11 this month.....strange! I am enjoying shopping out of my "small clothes that will never fit again" closet! It's just like buying new stuff all over again but it's free! I have SO much more energy and I have been doing so much more in my 'spare' time. I've been diligently walking at work every day and getting out more to do things with friends. Unfortunately I was laid off from my job with the local police dept. My position ends at the end of June. I will take this time to work on myself, and obviously finding another job, but I am trying not to stress about it too much. I've never been unemployed before so this is all new to me. I have my moments where I am very sad. I have been here long enough to get to know a lot of people and make new friends. It figures it always happens that way!
As for my DS, I am a happy camper. I struggle some days to get all of my vits in but I push myself because I know how very important it is. That reminds me of a question, should any of you have any ideas -- I have had some pain in my calves for about a week now and I am starting to wonder if it could be from some sort of deficiency creeping up. Any ideas? It almost feels like the charlie horse feeling but it's pretty constant and not quite so severe....it feels muscular.
Now for the pics. I hope they show up since it's my first attempt at getting them in the post. Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive of me and always willing to listen and lend advice on this huge adventure we're all on.
