Well, I was down a half a pound from last week. That means I have 4.5 left to go from the 7 I gained a few weeks ago.
Tummy issues update...
I went to the doctor this morning. She is running some tests on my thyroid and I'm having another ultrasound on it as she agrees that it does seem larger. She did say though that it could be because my neck is smaller with the weight loss but it won't hurt to take a look-see.
As far as the bloating goes, she thinks it is from that stomach bug I had a few weeks ago. She noticed I complained about the same thing about a year ago after having the stomach bug. She explained that sometimes the flora in the stomach gets all out of whack. I do eat a lot of yogurt but that may not be enough. She suggested taking some Prilosec for a few days. If that doesn't help, she'll run some other tests to see if I may need an antibiotic. She's not too concerned about it because I had a similar incedent last year.
She was also very pleased with my progress. She is happy that I'm taking it slow. She said I am more likely to keep it off this way and 50+ pounds is nothing to sneeze at.
Alright, keeping things short and sweet today. It's another rainy, cold day here. I just want to crawl under a blanket and watch the tube. I think that's exactly what the kids and I are going to do this afternoon.
Have a happy and healthy day!
