Week ?? Day ? :-)

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. So I'm over my prednisone dosing, my kidney function has improved a bit (alhamdulillah!) and here I am again. With good news to report... I didn't gain any, I actually lost! I think because by this point I've been on prednisone continually for 9 years so I didn't react quite the same. Alhamdulillah! I was anticipating 15+ pounds which did NOT happen; I actually lost a couple.

It's been so long since I've posted (as I said I would be taking a hiatus during my health issue) I've lost track of weeks/days. I guess I could start over or just do the math, we'll see.

Anyway I also changed my goal to reflect an easier target. That way I won't get discouraged as easily; I will admit it, I am a numbers girl. I like to see myself getting closer to that number that I want to have. So I've changed it to 190; I thought 200 was too easy and 180 too far. Really 190 was kinda random but I popped it in so there it is. Now when I lose my progress will show up more apparently and I think it will just encourage me.

I don't think I am going to rejoin WW. I really enjoyed it but in the month I was there, I think I learned enough about what to do/ not to do that I am able to be successful on my own. And save the $38 a month. lol To be honest, if I had liked the meetings (which I really wanted to) I would still attend. However I only liked the accountability portion of the meeting; otherwise I always felt kinda disconnected. There was some good information but I'm just not a support meeting kinda girl.

If I do well on my own I'll stay solo. If I seem to have problems, I'll rejoin because I do think it's a good program. So that's where I'm at for now.

Alright my sisters I'll be updating here more frequently now in that effort to pull off some more weight insha'Allah. :-) Ma salaama  ya'll...
