First of all I want to say for your words of support. To tell the truth I still have such a problem with this. My old doctor told me I had CHF, but he was so old and ready to retire that I just really didn't believe him. I just have trouble with fluid retention. I am thinking my new Dr is just looking at my history and saying the same thing. There is a lab test they can do to see if you are really in CHF and as far as I know I haven't had that done. So how could they be sure? Anyway I did my lasix yesterday and am going to spend the morning doing it again today because I still can write my name in the swelling in my legs. Since it is going to be extremely hot today I also am going to fill my fancy swimming pool up and chill in it outside with some ice tea. I am suppose to limit my fluids according to my doctor, I probably got into trouble trying to have more points then anyone else on our challenge, but I know I need to not get too dry. Last night I had horrible stomach cramps. Usually I get terrible leg cramps from the lasix, but not stomach. Just one thing after another.
I am not going to step on a scale for awhile. It is too depressing. I knew I was in trouble yesterday as my weight was up really fast again. It should be better today, but it just get so depressing to go up and down so much. I JUST WANT TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT AND HAVE IT STAY OFF!
OK, I have not gotten my weight watcher books. I checked the tracking and it was sent on the 26th. I paid priority mail and it is 4 days today if it comes. It would be great if it comes on my days off so I can get a good handle on it before I go back to work. Also I have been reading my new book, Marley and Me and it is so funny. Sounds alot like my dog when she was young. I recommend this book.
Another thing I am having trouble with is my graphics. The animation doesn't work on half of them. Is anyone else having trouble? It just started happening when I started using AOL picture saver. When I used photo bucket they all worked so I guess I will go to them for my graphics and the AOL photo storage for my pictures. Also what is everyone doing to stay cool today?
Well, I guess I had better take my pill and get started. Have a great day everyone and don't let the heat get you down. I plan on laying around like a fat cat and keeping cool.
