Saturday, May 19th 2012I've been eating far better the past couple of weeks. Is is time to start managing intake for weight loss? Maybe almost. I am due to get my knee scoped in a couple of days -- not to put to fine a point on it, there is something "funky" inside my knee: it swells, it hurts, it's stiff. My exercise ability will be reduced a bit for a week or so afterward, so maybe I ought to focus on maintenance for the next week or so and regroup a week from now.
Thursday, May 17th 2012Today has been relatively nonproductive. I did get my tuition paid and a transcript sorted out. I completed a short quiz and read some of the posts. I even read some of the book for pediatrics. But somehow there was no big progress. One of the major hangups was my big laptop--somehow it doesn't want to upload any of the updates and some of the applications just won't work right until I get the uploads processed. I will work on this stuff this weekend.
Wednesday, May 16th 2012I have picture issues. I was supposed to upload a picture of me with a forum post. First of all, I struggled forever (probably an hour) to get the stupid thing transferred to my computer, and then I couldn't get it to upload right so I ended up attaching it. But technical problems aside, I detest having pictures of me. Pictures make me look old, wrinkly, saggy, fat; my braces make my pictures look like I'm a creature from outer space; I have a stupid, receding hair line and stupid hair. Pic...
Monday, May 14th 2012TO DO LIST:
Sunday, May 13th 2012So my weight went up 2 pounds over night. Not fat gain, just water and salt. I feel pretty good eating this way, though I struggle with cravings a bit. However, I'm going to try to keep my eye on the ball and eat right. If I stay with this, I will lose over time, and I will be healthier and feel better.
