Day 3 VLCD R4 129.3 ( - 1.8, total down 4)

BACK to the 120s! PHEW! No teasing THIS round!

Just a little over 2.5 to go to be below my load weight. I am pretty amazed at the 2 days of high losses, even though this is just the beginning of my round! I am thrilled. 11.3 from my goal and 27-41 more days to go.

I'm feeling calmer. The podiatrist did recommend a cardiologist to have the ultrasound on my lower vascular system, but I'm asking around first. I've got an email into my plastic surgeon to see who he'd recommend, as well as asking some friends. The podiatrist was under the impression this started after my surgery, which I could see would lead him to thinking this may be a DTV, however after driving away, I remember this happened when my in-laws came to visit us for my husband's 40th which was Dec. 2008. Looking at all the symptoms, it looks like a blocked lymph node is most likely the cause. This can be as simple a procedure as exercise, and as complex and draining it. My mother had this happen to her (different node). The podiatrist said the wrap may actually help with getting my circulation moving so let's hope it helps. My foot is far less swollen today. He wrapped it up at the office. I have one of those ankle/foot support thingies that I'll wear after I get dressed.

It'll be a busy day today - showing homes, body wrap, and my son has an audition to go to so I'll be running around. Probably a good thing, no?

Dosing as I type...

Thank you ALL so very much for the support and advice. I promise, I'll take care of this and get to the root of the problem.


Edited to add

I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon for the ultrasound. I will keep you all posted. Think clear thoughts.

YEAH!! You're back in the 120's!! this round isn't going to be like any other round-- believe it!

Glad to hear about your foot. The blocked node sounds plausible, and shouldn't be too hard to treat. I'll be interested to hear about your ultrasound tomorrow.

How was your wrap session today???

hugs to you!

Going gangbusters, yes you are! Fantastic losses these last two days - and the 120's no less!
Hope you enjoyed the wrap, and I am glad you may have a lead for your foot!
