Passed a Milepost!

It's one of many on my path!

It’s one of many on my path!

I did it. I joked in my last posting about a virus being a horrible way to lose weight but it has lost me quite a few pounds in two weeks. Since I’ve started eating again I have gained 2 of the 10 pounds back but…I am now lighter than the weight that’s been inaccurately listed on my driver’s license since hmmmm I don’t remember when. This has been a milepost I’ve put on my path more than once. You can be sure it was a conscious decision on my part. Height and weight are listed in metric and two digits look more acceptable than three.

I’m still not feeling 100%. But it wasn’t H1N1 or Norwalk but a virus that affected nerves in my brain. I’m still partially deaf in one ear but it’s coming back. I also had another positive effect besides the weight loss. I felt no pain from my knee or right shoulder but maybe that was because the headaches were twice the pain. Well, almost no headaches now and because I gave up coffee for two weeks, I have only started back today with 1 1/2 cups. At least they tasted normal. But now the pain in my knee and shoulder are working their way back and I’ve never stopped my 24-hour (very expensive) pain med. Sigh. Always a silver lining if I have to look for it.

So, here’s to only looking back on a couple of mileposts and towards the next one. Eventually I will reach the end of this journey. Thanks for listening and for all the well wishes!  ;D Diane

  1. wow Diane, that sounds like a very serious virus! I’m so glad you are on the mend and eating again. So strange to lose your hearing like that. I’m glad it will come back! Take good care of yourself. hugs! Caro
