Day 67--weigh day

Today I'm feeling a bit better. Walked with my daughter to the clinic and weighed. I've lost 5 more pounds for a total of 27 pounds lost! I knew I had, stuff just keeps getting looser on me. And my blood pressure was 148/70.
Why that top number has to stay high I will never know. I talked to my doctor about my foot and how I've been feeling. So she wants me to take ibuprofen for my foot and get better walking shoes and I go back in 5 days if it's not better. She thinks that I've been feeling so down because of the foot pain and inability to walk--which is true, I'm so irritated with this whole situation. So we'll evaluate THAT in 5 days too.
Walked with my daughter tonight. I'm not sure if my friend wants to keep walking with me which is sadness. I told her I lost 5 more pounds and she's acting really weird to me. Sigh. So yeah I limped the whole 2.5 miles again but I'm none the worse for wear. It's so weird to hurt like this and it's not even swollen. OH I forgot I actually have veins in my feet that can be seen. I haven't seen those in years!
Thank you for all your encouraging words to me friends. I really appreciate them.


  1. Wow, you are melting away!!!

  2. Great loss!! Hope the foot feels better soon.

  3. Fantastic loss - well done!

    Flippin SPORTING INJURIES (LOL), hope it gets better soon.

  4. Well Done, what a brilliant loss, hope you foot is better soon.


  5. You're doing great. Bravo.

    Have you tried an ice pack on your foot? I know how depressing it can be when the exercise you love to do hurts you, but keep in mind the big picture and don't overdo it on your foot. Remember, if you stress your sore foot too much, it will only make the healing take longer.

    As for your friend looking at you weirdly--it happens. Keep focusing on your goal. You are sending an unspoken message of support to her, but only if she wants to take it.

    I'll be off on vacation tomorrow but look forward to hearing about your on-going triumphs when I get back!

  6. You're doing great! I'm so impressed!
    Good luck with the foot, and do get better sneakers like your doctor suggested. You'd be amazed what a decent pair of proper fitting sneakers can do for you! Well, maybe not, I just know that I sure was when I first started working out!

  7. That's awesome!!! 5 more pounds gone forever!!!
    I can't wait to get back into your archives, tomorrow morning I'm doing it and reading more and more of your journey, your story. It's a fabulous one my friend!!

    My best always

  8. WOO HOO!!!!!! Way to rock those scales girl! You're doing so're pushing through and you're reaching your goals.

    I'm glad you talked to the doctor about the depression and the foot. I'm placing my bet on the shoes. I've gone hiking for the last 2 days and my feet are so torn up right now. I know it's the shoes...I've just been putting off getting better ones because of the cost. Not anymore!! I will be purchasing some new ones very soon. The walking is to improves my health and it keeps my spirits lifted! Go get some new shoes!! :)
