I've not been around for a while. Partly because I was having phone problems. And I was having problems.
I had a stretch of time between the end of September to Thanksgiving that I was do very well. Cardiac rehab had gotten back into the swing of working out. My husband made me room in the garage for a small gym. I was sticking to my food plan, but didn't loose any weight. Wasn't worried. I thought things would settle down.
I even started working again. Then the a fib started again. I spent Thanksgiving weekend in the hospital. The doctor changed my medication that slows down my heart rate and BP but doesn't stop the aging. I'm having more surgery in January.
My weight is jumping 3 to 5 pounds in days. My GP thinks the new mess are not helping. The holidays sure aren't. The past 3 weeks, I gave up even trying.
Now is the time to step back into a healthy life style. If the medicine slows my body down, I can't use the scale as an indicatior of health. Part of the problem is cooking. When I'm down, the last thing I want to do is chop veggies. My husband is willing to help. I've got to figure out how to make this work.
Thank you for all who have prayed for me. I keep thinking the heart issues are dealt with. I get knocked down time after time. It's been hard not to get down. But I know God is in control.
