124.2 - 10 pounds above LDW. Blech, but there are more important pressing matters.

My dears, it's been too long. I'm afraid the best I could do is check out your latest posts. I've not caught up, but if time permits I will... but not until I gather and submit my tax stuff to my CMA.

I'm heavier than I want to be. My normal according to the experts is between 98-127 pounds. I gained about 5 pounds after my Holland trip, but that was fine. I was 120 when I met my husband when I was 23 years old. It's a healthy weight. However, the last couple weeks I've creeped up to 126. Not acceptable.

I'm focusing on exercising and healthy eating. That's all I can do. I don't want to do another round until I'm cleared to do so.

Although I announced my hands were better last post, it's been off and on since then.

I have since been referred to an incredible nurse who spent 2 hours with me going over my health history, my supplements, my prescriptions, and my lifestyle. I love this woman. She was impressed by what I eat and take and that I've, for the most part, kept the weight off post HCG (I've been within 5 pounds of the same weight now for 2 years!). She had apparently helped people with HCG in past but they went right back to their old life style and gained it all back.

Anyway, she is completely thorough. She ordered more tests than I've ever had. She is determined to find out what's wrong with me.

I had my blood taken by the lab, not her office, in my suburb (she's downtown), and he was telling me that she is a rock star. He said he hears nothing but great things about her and that everyone looking to find answers to mysterious symptoms find their answers through her. YES.

I'll try to be better keeping up with all y'all, but it may be tough until my taxes are submitted!


It's a day late...

Laughter is the best medicine

I'm still having problems, especially with my hands, but I keep focusing on things that make me laugh. I have 2 new doctor appointments - one for general and the other for the lump in my breast - I'll keep you posted!
