I haven't blogged for several weeks-how fast time is passing. I am glad we both are finally feeling better. We both had colds after the flu so only got over that about 10 days ago and DH isn't feeling great again. I worry that his resistance is so low and he is prone to catch anything that is around.
I am back to walking daily-it took me a week or so to build back up to my 10,000 steps a day but I pretty much get them in every day. I have started a yoga class this past week and trying to get back to going to the gym 2-3 times a week. I have a buddy who wants to go so we are going to set up a time and make it a scheduled thing like my walking.
I have stabilized and haven't been losing any more weight but have continued to lose inches. I am thinking I should go back on my strict lean protein diet for a week to see if that will help me kick it in again. I have gone from a size 22 to a size 16 since Oct so feeling good about that.
I have to go to my dr in early Mar and will have bloodwork done the 1st so will see what that tells us. I have checked my bloodsugar a couple of times and once it was 98 and the other time 99 so thinking I am doing good. Sure a lot better than the 125 it was when I had bloodwork done before my last visit to the dr.
I guess I will find out my true progress Mar 11 when I see the dr!

    I think you will have a good report at your doctor's.

    I am sorry your husband isn't well. The less stuff you have, the less time you have to spend in maintaining it and cleaning it.

    That is a wonderful drop in clothing sizes!

    Good progress Pat. I'm sure the dr. will have good results when you go. The immune system does take a kicking when you have been as sick as your husband has been. Give him a lot of healthy foods and hopefully that will help. Have a great day.

    I'm happy that you're feeling better and getting back to your normal routine. Take it easy the first couple days. Hope your hubby feels better too.

    Good news that you have gotten your walking back up. Sometimes it takes a long time after being so ill. I'm sorry to hear your hubby isn't feel good again. There is a lot of "stuff" going around.
