My Weight Loss

Pathetic Blogger

So I have been a pathetic blogger. My last post was June 27TH on my 47TH Birthday when I got rid of my scale. Well so much has happened and I now feel the time to post about it. I started eating a little more raw on June 6TH when I started drinking a juice every morning that I made called the Great Eliminator. Well just by the name you can tell what it was suppose to do. NOPE not with this kid. Maybe a little more the 1ST week but after that nope, nada, nothing. I do like the way it fills me up even though it isn't the most yummy tasting juice. It consists of 1 large beet, 10 carrots, 1 large cucumber, and I started adding 2 apples to make it so I could get it down and hold it down. It was tasting a little too much like dirt and bitter.
I have not weighed myself since getting rid of the scale unfortunately I have had to go to the doctor where they did that for me. JERKS!! Why for an ear ache do you have to know how much I weight? I know it is procedure but really?
So even though I have not been off soda pop ALL soda pop since June 6TH I have put on weight. Not exercising I am sure has a lot to do with it. The massage industry at least my clientele have gone back to their homes in Canada or out of state until October so I haven't been doing as many massages either. This adds to my lack of activity. Yes I am giving you my excuses here. I really need to get this off my chest. I am tired of worrying about being skinny. Yes I want to be healthy but I am tired of not enjoying life due to this. On the other hand I am not enjoying the way I look and feel.
I have been seeing doctors starting back in April to see about getting some surgery done for my bladder. Having been pregnant with 7 babies and giving birth to 5 of them (the other 2 were miscarried) my body has been through the wringer. I am unable to exercise comfortably for an extended period of time without having to stop to use the bathroom. So this is one big reason I am wanting to have this done. I went in last Thursday the 35TH for the bladder test. It wasn't fun and kind of awkward. It made me have flash backs to holding my full bladder for ultra sounds for my babies. No bundle of joy found on that one. he he Test results will be revealed to me on Thursday August 1ST.
I also have been feeling tearing in my stomach where I had had hernia repair surgery in 2006. I went in to see the Dr. for this procedure and by feeling he felt 2 hernias above where the netting was from the last repair. I went in on Tuesday the 30TH for CT scan. I will get results for this in the next few days from what I was told.
I am also now waiting on a referral for a cardiac doctor so they are able to do the above surgeries. I had a heart attack when I was 32 so the doctors are super paranoid about me going under the knife at this time without all the tests being done and me having full clearance.
I am not asking for sympathy or anything like that just getting this off my chest. I am ready to be back to feeling good and having my energy level back.
Hope all of you are doing well. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
