Some kindly troll came by and anonymously "suggested" that I was giving medical "advice" and I can't do that on a website. Well, actually, I CAN put whatever I want on my blog. It's my blog, none of the information is copyrighted, and it's obvious to anyone of reasonable intelligence that I am not your doctor. But just to be clear, I'm not giving anyone any specific medical "advice" here. I answer questions based on my experience and knowledge as a registered nurse, a nurse anesthesia student, and an experienced bandster. It doesn't replace the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a licenced practitioner, i.e. your doctor or nurse practitioner. I'm making no diagnoses or treatment suggestions to anyone. I think that is enough of a disclaimer.
People are dumb, aren't they?
Weight is just hanging in its same place. I think this is going to be the norm for a while. It's interesting, I do lose weight when my husband comes to town--although I don't lose weight when I spend the weekend in Portland. It doesn't seem to work both ways. I was up 1 lb yesterday and this morning I am down 2 lbs. So, whatever. A pound a week isn't going to be happening this close to goal--not even 1/2 lb per week right now. I've been losing a couple pounds a month for a couple of months. I try to be cool with it, but sometimes it does drive me a little nuts. But I have other things to worry about, so now I'm just trying to eat like a normal person, keep up my running, and hope my body cooperates with me eventually. Losing 20 lbs in the first semester of anesthesia school is a pretty good accomplishment, I try to keep that in mind.
