Hi sj,Bab's,Ginny,Rosie,Marji,Debbie, and Bee. Thanks for all your responses and help.
SJ, yesterday I gave serious thought to eating a salad, unfortunately my mind said that's not gonna get it I need CARBS!!!!!!!!. lol. I'm more of an atkins kind of person so this sudden carb thing is really hard on the tummy.
Hi Bab's, I think the breathing treatments are helping some thanks for asking. Yes I do seem to have somthing to drink at all times. either coffee or coke. I know I should drink water but for some reason it just doesn't appeal to me. Than again looking like a balloon doesn't appeal to me either. How have you been doing? I am so far behind here.
Rosie, i'm taking pulmacort which is an inhaled steroid I don't know if they are in the same family or not. I take 4 different inhaled steroids plus the 10mg. of pred every day. I do try not to have junk food around but when I get a craving and am at the store I have been stacking up on stuff! I havn't eating yet today and I am noticing that a lot of what I am doing is getting it in my head long before I want it in my stomach. So maybe if I can change the way my thinking goes. It's just not worth it to get heavier with the lung problems I have to stay as close to normal as possible.
Marji, I love instant quacker oatmeal but I didn't know they mae weight control. I bought cinnamin flavors and ate 2 packets at a time. LOL. So not good. I can't chew gum because it sticks to my plate. How's that baby doing?
Thanks Deb, yeah I hope you don't either. We'll just keep a possitive thought in our head about
that one. thanks hun for responding.
Hi Bee, thanks for the input. My mom actually used to go to ellain powers sstudio's nd lost a ton of weight and they told her to drink the lemon water too. I'll have to give it a try. thanks for your help.
Hey Ginny, I know it's not funny but I did have to laugh about
your arby experience. I can totally relate. In the first place I love arby's roast beef with their arby sauce and horsey sauce! I could see myself eating that much too. I'm so proud of you for getting that weight off. You should give yourself lots of pats on the back for that one. I have 2 doctor appts this week and am going to discuss it with them. Maybe they can give me yet another pill to curb the appt.I don't want anything that will make me shake though. I'm already runing amuck in my head from the steroids now.
