Brand new month! Tuesday-November 1, 2011

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

I started the new month with a 1.8 lb loss at Weight Watchers this morning. My leader gave out all kinds of reading material to keep us motivated. I stopped at the grocery store before my meeting to buy the November issue of Cooking Light. I wanted to have something to read while I waited for the meeting to start. I am kind of a loner when it comes to being around strangers. I don't talk to anyone there and I kind of feel left out. My leader called me by my name last week and that made me glad because it means she knows I'm there. The morning meeting is mostly retired seniors and I don't feel I have anything in common with them. I have always felt left out at the meetings. I will make a conscious effort to participate more.

I walked over 9000 steps yesterday. That's while I was wearing my pedometer. I'm sure I made over 10000 after I took it off. I walked to and from my meeting this morning. I ordered myself a thermal-lined fleece jacket to wear on days when it's a little chilly. This is Chicago and pretty soon it will be FRIGID!

I have given myself a mini goal. I want to be 10 pounds less than I am now by Thanksgiving. I hope I'm able to continue to go down because this edema is making my life a living Hell. One day my weight is up and then the next day it's down. I take water pills twice a day and sometimes I think I'm taking a placebo. Some days I will use the bathroom 2 or 3 times in one hour and sometimes I don't go for several hours. How is that? I think that's why my weight keeps going up and down. But I'm not going to blame it on the edema. I will continue with tracking my food, drinking water, moving more, etc. What goes up must come down!!!

    Make sure your Dr. checks your potassium level, if your potassium is too low, you can have these issues. I hope it gets better soon. Good job with your steps, 9000 is a lot! emoticon
