Hello, I'm back, it has been a rough couple of weeks. My stomach has been giving me hell, still the bathroom issue. I saw my surgeon Wednesday, he moved my miralax up to three times a day, and is sending me to a doctor to see about a medicine to help..well I may not have to go to her, yesterday the gates opened!!!put t this way, I weighed 177 Thursday today I left clinic at 173lbs. I guess I was really full of it. I just hope it continues. I hope you all are doing well, I have missed checking in, it's a very rainy day in Tennessee today and the temperature is dropping, yesterday we had a beautiful 80 degree day, I'm so ready for spring!!! Have a great weekend all.

Progress as of today: 55 lbs lost so far, only 23 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/14/2018:
You are getting the real spring.....you don't know how lucky you are.......I think we will pass spring and go straight into summer.

happy-1 on 04/14/2018:
Welcome back!!! Glad you are here!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/15/2018:
we also had nice warm temps for a couple days this weekend..now back to a rainy Spring for now! keep on...glad you are feeling better!

Donkey on 04/15/2018:
I hope your bathroom problems have been resolved. That's some serious help you're needing if you're taking Miralax 3x a day. Gotta keep things moving along, I suppose. I've been dealing with my husband's bathroom issues all weekend. He really ought to take Metamucil daily, like his doctor recommended.

Hi, I have a quick question...I see a tracker on everyone's entries but I don't see one on mine, is this something you can't see on your own account?

Go to the blue bar across the top of the page and click on the box with the wrench. Then....click on Bio...or edit bio...add your info and you should get the graph too.

Good job!

graindart on 03/18/2018:
Can't wait for Spring. We've had a huge amount of snow this year that just hasn't melted off in months. Finally had a warmer week this past week and it melted off a good amount of snow, but we just started getting more last night.

Hello all, checking in, nothing earth shaking going on..thank God, down 2lbs and I am satisfied. About to fix me a little dinner, was told again I'm not eating enough...not that I'm going to change how I eat, I just don't have the appetite I use to.i hope everyone is doing well, well I will check in a little later in the week.

Thank you all sweethearts...

Donkey on 03/08/2018:
Keep up the good work! I feel it's a fine line to balance between needing to eat sufficiently when one has no appetite. Trial and error, I suppose...

Hello all, just wanted to check in. Just got home from clinic, new weight 178 lbs, woohoo!!! I just have to keep moving forward. It's raining up a storm here, rained most of the week now we are under a flood watch. I will be so glad when it stops. Nothing planned for the weekend just waiting to watch big brother tonight, this is my first season watching because of the celebrities, needless to say I'm hooked. Hoping everyone has a safe weekend..

Progress as of today: 50 lbs lost so far, only 28 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 02/24/2018:
Congratulations on your weight...so happy for you!

Donkey on 02/25/2018:
Looks like you're in a new set of numbers for good. Congratulations!

horn_of_plenty on 02/26/2018:
Lots of rain here too!

Much better than snow as NYC usually around this time i'd say could get snow...i'm SO thankful it's been a mostly mild Winter so far!

Big Brother show sounds fun....i usually do not watch any sitcoms other than the news which is not a sitcom, lol. ....

congrats on your new low! don't stop.

Hello all, just checking in. I'm doing well, feeling pretty good, getting around much better. I weighed on my home scale this morning it read 179lbs, but I will not record weight until I weigh at clinic tomorrow, I really would like to see 170lbs by spring. Since I'm on dialysis, I have to watch my fluid intake because if I don't it's hell to pay when I go to treatment, so far since I've been back in hemo I haven't had that problem. I plan to just move forward and keep eating healthy, exercise , still in my house for now, can't wait for spring so I can get outside to walk.hoping you all have a safe and great weekend..oh!! I want to say thank you to the ones who respond to my posts, I spend most of my time alone so I really appreciate reading your feedback, thank you.

Progress as of today: 48 lbs lost so far, only 30 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 02/16/2018:
Sounds like you are doing really well....I'm looking forward to getting outside myself....I'm sitting here looking at my icy hill of a driveway and thinking..about how difficult it will be to get the mail today. I'm exercising in the house too....

graindart on 02/16/2018:
Seeing a new set of numbers always helps motivate me to keep on track.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2018:
my coworker who is also on dialysis also says he cannot drink a lot of fluids at all.

I am also eager for Spring to arrive bc i believe it'll be a LOT easier to get in more physical activity on my end too...when it's cold it's really hard to last outside for long - cold makes it so uncomfortable...but this week coming we are lucky with Spring-like weather in store for mid-Winter which is just amazing...i'll make sure to walk outside at lunchtime & get my 20-30 minutes of walking in each day!

Donkey on 02/17/2018:
Glad that you are feeling good and getting around. Every day is an opportunity to do well for yourself. I hope your "official" weigh-in at the clinic was just as good news as your home scale reported.

It's so nice to see a new set of numbers. Graindart is right!

horn_of_plenty on 02/19/2018:
I agree with Grainy and Donkey !!!

Hi everyone, just wanted to check in, things are going well, feeling pretty good, no weight gain. But everyone is asking if I'm still losing weight, not sure what's going on but my clothes are falling off of me not to mention I posted a selfie on FB yesterday and got a ton of responses. Not tripping on my number on the scale but I'm trying to do some walking to exercise, right now I can only walk in my house like my physical therapist had me doing, I hope by spring I can get outside. I hope you all have a great weekend.

bearcountrygg on 02/09/2018:
Sounds like you are doing well.

Donkey on 02/10/2018:
I'm impressed. I had to lose 20 pounds before my clothes were falling off of me.

Good walking goal for Spring! I'm a firm believer in physical therapy, so follow the directions - don't try to do too much, too fast :-)

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2018:
You are doing great - baby steps are good - no need to do to much and be sidelined longer. Good!
