I haven’t posted in a while. Things have been going OK. I hadn’t been losing more weight- the last 15-20 pounds- but I wasn’t gaining. My exercise plan was working- Pilates, walk/run, walking several times a week, and more. Eating had been under control and the Band was working. I went to China of for two weeks and came back from vacation feeling great with no weight gain.
Then came the summer cold to end all colds. A month of inactivity, lack of sleep because of meds, restricted breathing that makes even a climb upstairs leaving me tired, and then…a gain of 15 pounds!
I can’t do much yet other than start logging my food and watching how much I’m eating. But it will take jump-starting m y exercise plan to begin losing the weight.
I’m beside myself. Pollen counts are very high and going outside triggers the restricted breathing. So I have to wait..recover..do the best I can to not gain anymore weight. And. Not. Give. Up!!
