I went to my regular doc yesterday because I thought that I have Restless Leg Syndrom and yes I do. So, now another med - Requip. I feel like a flippin pharmacy with all the meds I have - LOL .
Any way, while there the nurse the usual - take the vitals, weigh me, etc. This where the good news comes in - I have lost 14 POUNDS in just a few short weeks. I now weigh 192 pounds (I don't normally share my weight with people, but this is awesome). I haven't seen numbers below 200 in at least 5 years. While I was on the Lithium, until I became toxic, I was told to drink tons of water. Even though I hate the stuff I did as I was told - it was all I was drinking. And even though I'm no longer on the Lithium, I'm still continuing to drink a lot of water.
I know this is a minor thing compared to everything else, but I am very excited! I'm going to continue to drink lots of water, eat really well, and maybe start taking some short walks (work up to longer ones) and maybe I can lose the weight that I want to.
Like I said, I just wanted to share this with you all!!
Woohoo - doing the happy dance!
