Happy Easter

Eddie's daughter, granddaughter and grandson came down for Easter lunch. We had ham, potato salad, macaroni-n-cheese, deviled eggs, green beans, crescent rolls, and brownies. Of course, I didn't eat all that, but I had some of it. They wouldn't let me take pics of them and I forgot to take pics of the food, but I did get updated pics of me and some of the table decor.

Physical Therapy will make you hurt worse than what is ailing you

My PT had me exercising this morning with stretching exercises and riding the recumbent bike. My behiney is sore, but what the hay, at least now my hip is not hurting as bad. I have two more weeks of PT for three days a week before I go back to the doctor.

I am really tired of having things come up wrong with me. I am ready to look and feel good. I am getting there, I have lost 68 pounds and have approximately 55 pounds to go. I have backed off on the 148 weight pre skin surgery weight and have accepted that if I lose down to 155 that even at the higher weight after the skin is removed I will be down to 140 which is in the range of not being overweight, so that will do. Plus my doctor said I was being a little too unrealistic wanting to get down to 130 after being so overweight for so long.

I have to go to work tomorrow, but I will not be working OT this week.

Hope everyone has a good Good Friday and a Happy Easter.

I am pooped!

I worked overtime Friday night for 3 hours and then again 8 hours on Saturday. Today, Eddie and I cleared all the underbrush out from under the fig bushes. I swept off the deck (and it is a huge deck) and traipsed up and down the stairs at the big house about 6 or 7 times putting clothes away. I believe I have gotten a little windburned and sunburned and it has made me awfully tired.
