Weight loss

Today is our "weigh in day". We are doing weight watchers online as our health insurance provider allows a substantial discount. I am so pleased! I lost 8 pounds and he lost 11. I know it is water weight and I understand that it will slow to 2 to 2.5 pounds per week if we add exercise and stick to the plan.

So, this morning, I have added 30 minutes of exercise and he has agreed to try this evening. Even if he just sits on the bowflex and stretches his upper body it will be more than he has done in 5 years.

Just pleased that he is giving this a solid try. No hope for anything more than just sticking to it today. That's my goal - one da at a time.

Sciatic Nerve

His pain is so bad he called the doc to try and get in to see someone again today. Second visit in under a week. And he has an extremely high pain tolerance level.

Has been on the sofa or in bed. Can't walk hardly at all. Severe pain.

But he is still on the diet plan - doing fine with that.
