Things seem to be going the ‘right way’.

I had my feet sorted today so that is one thing sorted. I have managed to make my hair a lot better. I will just glide the straightener over it tonight ready for tomorrow’s meeting. I presume that is still happening because I haven’t heard anything since the social worker said she was off to arrange it and find out the information I required.

I have cancelled my next covid vaccination after thinking back to when all my health issues started kicking off. I also gained a load of weight since the initial vaccination and booster. I injured my ankle which never has truly stopped being swollen even since it healed, then my little toe swelled up on that side. Then on the other side my knee and finger got injured. I want my injuries to heal and if I go for another one and I can say bye to that goal and getting the stubborn weight off. It messed up my hormones because it delayed my period for a week when I had the first dose. I am now having to exercise at least twice a day by going for a walk and doing toning exercises in bed at night. I’m doing all that and the weight still isn’t dropping off. I was 77.5 kg on 7th September and now I’m 75.4 kg on 3rd October. That is just over 4 lbs total loss. That is only a lb a week in those four weeks between those dates. I have been working hard enough to lose at least 2 lbs a week or more. The weight is refusing to come off properly even in a constant calorie deficit. I drink at weekends but that is only 900 ish calories or 1800 extra if I have two packs of alcohol (4 bottles) a weekend. I went out two days in a row to walk off at least 700 to 800 and sometimes 1000 if I go on a super long walk. I make sure that I balance out consumed calories and activities to burn them to keep the deficit consistent. I barely eat when I do have a weekend of chilling on the alcohol. As I said, to be balanced you simply can’t have too much food as well.

And, lastly, our PDSA registration has just come through. I can now book an appointment online if mister has to go back for his issues. He seems better but still not quite himself yet.
