According to my scale, I am down 1 lb for this past week and that makes 7 since my last doc appointment on August 26.
Seems unreal.
But I dont get my hopes up too high, i have learned the hard way.
But right now, even though its such a small amount, 1 lb is my only recent victory.
I hate to make this announcement, but I am going to have to cut down on my coffee intake.
I am not sure, but lately, the last 3 or 4 days, I have noticed a slightly rapid heartbeat.
I am not taking any new meds or supplements.
I am going to cut out or down on coffee for the next week or two and see if I continue noticing it.
I just had a stress test in July and got a clean bill.
But I am scheduled to have an echo this week, so maybe that will give me a better idea.
I dont feel any other symptoms, just a little faster beating.
And I cannot take my blood pressure meds, which are basically just diuretics until after I walk.
For two weeks now, the mayor and the employees of our little city have been promising to bring me a key to the womens rest room at our park walking track.
They have given a key to several other women because we do not want to share the port o pot with the jail guys they bring to cut weeds and such.
Nor, the city employees and other random people who use it as they pass by.
The community center has been built about a year but they keep the bathroom doors locked to keep down vandalism, which I understand.
But I am going to voice my discontent today as I have been told 3 times since last week that they will be there with me a key.
I told the mayor for me its somewhat a medical issue, as I take these blood pressure pills which make me have to pee alot more, lol.
The things a mayor has to deal with.
But I just wait until my walk is finished, take my bp meds and hydrate.
Hopefully, knock on the wood of the locked bathroom door, this time next week I will have another loss to report.

    I am at an age that I need to know the location of all the restrooms and how fast I can get to them. Darned nuisance.

    Wow- Locked public bathrooms, not exactly public are they.? That is crazy. Vandalism or no, I am sure they could open them at 6am or so- someone has to be attending to them on a daily basis anyway,

    Good luck with the echo! Keep rolling- you are doing great! emoticon
