This week was amazing! Simply amazing. Yes, I made the 75-pound milestone! I am so very thrilled. I released 4.3 pounds this week. I am down a total of 77.2 pounds. This is such a significant number. I am getting close to my next goal of 235 pounds.
Start weight: 323 pounds
Current weight: 245.8 pounds
Goal weight: 150-155 pounds
I still am hurting a lot less. I am attempting to get off Diclofenac Sodium, which is an anti-inflammatory. So, I am feeling some aches in my hips, lower back, knees, and ankles. But it isn’t enough to keep me down. I am still active and doing my thing. I am due for my next Tremfya shot on Friday.
Instead of walking my normal paths, I drove out to Lake Mead and Railroad Tunnel Trail. I walked to the turnaround and came back. It was beautiful and also very sad. As you can see, the lake is so shallow. It is sad, scary, and still beautiful.
What else is happening? The refi is still creeping along. It is approved with conditions. Hopefully, it closes this week. And I am planning to drop off my ballot today. But this week was pretty quiet.
Finally, I need to say I am happy. I love my life again. I love myself. And I love the rhythm of my day-to-day. I know how weird this sounds, considering the chaos of the world and our time. I am very aware of everything, and I am not living in denial. But I am doing what I need to do to make the changes I believe we need as a country. I am anxious about the politics and tenor of the country. But I am still happy.
Remember, in this crazy time, please be kind–especially to yourself.
