There are many different kinds of falls-economic, mental, physical & spiritual.I was labeled a "Fall Risk" the first time I went to the hospital for what was eventually diagnosed as Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, a progressive, auto immune disease.In a few weeks, I went from healthy to being an invalid and eventually almost completely paralyzed. With the help of God, loving family and friends, and modern science, I have begun to recover.
My stress test is tomorrow at 7:45. I kinda think that the end result will be my doctors telling me to eat better and exercise more. I still feel lazy if there is something I don't get done in a timely fashion. Leaving things half done never bothered me before I got sick, ask Adrienne.
I am curious to see if I have lost any weight. More on that later
Thanks to David for explaining it is called a Holter, after the person who invented it, not halter, like I thought.
Yesterday I ate 67% of my daily allotment of calories, if I was accurate in recording them. Basically, I ate whatever I wanted to eat, provided I was willing to record it. That extra step, the recording, really slows me down.
I dropped off the halter this morning, the n went home to take off the electrodes. Ouch! I told the young woman that was putting them on to shave me first and I guess she only half listened.
Oh well, half is better than none.
In other news, I now weigh 272 pounds, about 50 over a healthy weight, according to my doctor. In order to help lose the weight, I got a calorie counting app for my to help. I put in my present weight, then my ideal weight and pick a plan on how fast I want to lose the weight (I picked the most gradual), and the program does the rest. As long as I am honest with my phone about what I eat and don't go over the limit, I should be at my ideal weight in about half a year.
This is going to be hard because I really don't want to face my food addiction.
As of 10 am, I have eaten 24 % of my daily calories.
