Thoughts on my weekly change
I really didn’t do a whole lot this last week. I weighed myself on Friday and was actually up to 302 – by that I had gained 7 pounds overnight. I wasn’t able to blog on Friday and honestly, with a number like 302, it didn’t hurt my feelings any.
Saturday night was spent in the ER with a freakishly high pulse and chest discomfort. Now – keep in mind, I don’t think I had a heart attack and that’s what the doctor’s said as well. But I didn’t like how I felt and it totally freaked me out. I don’t know what I did or what was going on…. but I went. I ended up getting the ok as far as heart attack but did walk away with a heart monitor for 24 hours.
I will be turning the monitor in tomorrow after work and I will be making an appointment with my regular physician as well. In the end – I really do think I’m going to ask about bariatric surgery. I need to find out what it entails and just how much my insurance will cover. I feel like a failure for considering it but at the same time, I cannot continue to live at this size. It may not have been a heart attack on Friday night but it will be one eventually – I need help losing this weight.
Now – I may or may not have it done, but I need to do something.
Things I have changed in the last week
I didn’t do the stairs in big sessions like I have in previous weeks but I’m trying to take the stairs more as I move floor to floor – and that adds up.
Things I want to do next week
I really don’t know… any suggestions?
No pictures this week as I haven’t hit a 10 pound milestone.
