Hi there! Are you snowed in yet? We've had a couple of snowfalls, but mostly rain-rain-rain. I'm actually looking forward to a white outdoors scene, with a Cardinal or two to brighten it up. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, your family and Smudge-the-radiator-cat.
Hi there T. We haven't talked in a while; hope you're feeling a bit better, and that Smudge is still a happy camper. Well, I used that happy camper phrase because we just got back from a trailer camping trip, and all of us -- 2 people and 3 Goldens -- were in fact, happy campers. Cheers to you and family and Smudge.
Arthritis sucks! "They" tell my husband to keep moving his arthritic knees and hips - without the 'impact'... as in using a stationery bicycle or being underwater.... and then build up ever so slowly until you can peddle almost pain free. That's much easier to type than to do :-). If you have half decent pain meds, you might be able to start out on a really easy exercise plan to get your cranky old joints moving again, but I know it's not easy and I cannot guarantee weight loss... just maybe a bit more mobility. Don't give up on yourself - re weight loss.
I think the stomach upset I get from Victosa makes me crave more carbs. I feel like I really need those soda crackrs in the evning and hope the treadmill trudge will offset the extras. I am also not on a full dose of Victoza and might not be for awhile since my stomach hurts soo much, so maybe that's why I don't lose weight on it now.
Little steps, my friend ... or at least little pedals!
