Week 2 Update

Hi there!

Four days into my second week back on plan and I’m still at it. I’m still having doubts about the “new” Weight Watchers plan though.  It was a little depressing stepping on the scale this morning to only be down 0.1 of a pound. (I usually peek at the scale about mid-week.)  But I’m going to keep going and see what happens at my official weigh in on Monday. Keep your fingers crossed for me, please.

Overall, I’m still feeling pretty crummy. Especially this week. Tuesday and today, I’ve been having some stomach issues that just are pretty awful. And that’s on top of the other stuff – lightheadedness, exhaustion, etc.  I go to see my doctor again on Wednesday to discuss my sleep apnea and so will have to talk to her about the other stuff that’s still going on as well. Considering I was in tears this afternoon, I probably will be in her office, too. I’m just so so tired and tired of feeling like hell.  But I’m hanging in here and though I may lapse a bit into self-pity once in a while (hey, I’ve been through a lot this year and have a right to be upset), I eventually pull myself out of it.

Some of you may remember that my dad has epilepsy and tends to fall with it sometimes. He apparently fell three times this morning, though I only heard one of them. Luckily, my mom was able to come home from work so that I could go to work myself. I think he’s okay now. Just banged up and bruised.

I can’t remember if I told you guys or not, but they bought a stair lift for our staircase so that he wouldn’t have to walk up and down the stairs.  It’s been wonderful and is especially helpful in getting him up to bed when he’s having seizures.  However, in one of his falls today, he landed on the chair part of it, which was at the bottom of the stairs, and broke it.  Luckily, they were able to get out there today and fix it and didn’t charge them.

As far as fun this week, it has mostly consisted of my continued quest to get through the entire series of Dawson’s Creek. I never watched it really when it was on TV, and my friend Christy (a/k/a Angelchrys) mentioned that it was on Netflix streaming. So I started with season 1, episode 1, and have worked my way through it. I’m somewhere in the middle of season 6, the final season.

Yes, I’m a Pacey girl. 🙂

Anyway, that’s my update. Hope you’re all having a good week!

    Hi Pamela! It’s so good to see you back in the game. I’m struggling too, although no health issues.

    It’s been a hell of a year for me too. Was thinking today that since last August 6, it’s been the worst year of my life. Maybe our luck will change soon. One can always dream!

    Sorry about your health issues. Really sounds awful. For all of our medical miracles these days there sure seems to be a lot of people like you that have something wrong that no one can seem to figure out. Hopefully they’ll figure it out soon.

    Take care. Really happy to see you posting again.
