I was good, feeling good…then I got REALLY sick! So much I ended up in the ER on Saturday in so much pain. After ruling out pneumonia…thankfully… it was determined I have a sever case of sinusitis. UGH! OK. I was sent home with a steroid to help open my breathe way and antibiotic for the infection. I am 3 days on meds and finally the pain is manageable.
We are moving on…
Today at Weight Watchers I weighed in and….
lost 3.6 pounds!
I was so surprised…happily so. I was prepared for a gain. It was ironic to me the meeting topic today was being our own BFF. I was yelling at myself in my head on the way to the meeting how stupid I was for not trying hard to keep track this past week…sick or not.
Well I apologized to me and promised I would work harder at not being so critical of my shortfalls and to just pick myself up and move on.
That is what I am working on. To be nice to myself and to stop the trash talking when I make a mistake. I certainly would not say the things I say to myself to anyone else when they goofed up so why do I do it to me? I am not perfect either.
Backing up a bit…
***I had something that concerned me a little and maybe someone in the WLS community can help me with this…***
With this sinusitis I was in a LOT of pain…I mean rolling around on the floor type of pain. Even though I took 3 Tylenol it barely touched the pain. At the ER they said I should have taken ibuprofen…a NO NO after surgery…instead of the Tylenol. I am susceptible to sinus infections…always have been….so my concern is there has got to be a pain med that would touch the pain that would not endanger harming me after surgery. I really really could use your input here and I will definitely be bringing this up to my doc next month but thought of you…the awesome online bariatric community that you are.
I was getting busy with spring cleaning here at the house…then got sick…and getting things ready for the day when I have surgery. Yes I am forward thinking positive here! =) Making “Mom only zones” in different areas of the kitchen and redoing things for ease. I was on a good roll too. Bummer I will have to work on getting back in that mode again.
I just LOVE this idea!!!
There we go for an update. How about you? What’s new with you?
Until next time…
