In case anyone noticed I haven't been around much lately, I'm still here and still stalking the forums nightly, just haven't had much to say.
I have been able to increase what I eat, I'm finally up to 1800 calories a day! Some days I even reach 1900! Some days are harder than others, but I'm working on it. I even get hungry now and then. I haven't felt hunger pains in so many years, I forgot what they felt like. (For those that don't know, I was eating up to 800 calories a day for decades and weighed 300 lbs) I'm now down to 280 pounds, I never dreamed I would lose weight by eating more. I'm starting to have the energy to do things again, but then I pay for it in much increased pain levels. :(
I got my hands on a pair of pretty puce (pinkish-purple) colored forearm crutches so I am hoping to start hiking easy trails again soon. Not today though, my right leg feels like I have run a marathon. I've done more in the last three days than I normally do in a week! That's how much my energy has increased. Today I am going stir crazy because I want to be outside doing something, anything, but my leg hurts so bad I want to cry. Therefore I'm sitting on the love seat with my leg elevated to give it a break. I did make pizza for lunch though. ;)
A friend whom I haven't seen in a few years passed away at the beginning of the month, she was in her early 50s. I don't know how she passed, but she leaves behind a son in his early teens.
Rick's 97 year old Grandfather passed away this past week as well. So it's been a rough week, but we made it threw.
I guess that's everything, just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here and haven't abandoned any of you. :)
PS I hope everyone has a great day!
