LOL, you guys are great you really lifted my spirits!
Judy I almost rolled out of my chair when I read your psalm! Yeah there is a lot of salt in soda. I do get adema and am on lasixs. Hasn't stopped meyet though. Another symptom of this disease it is clear....when I look down my feet disappear!
Sunshine, thanks for the tip. Just the name of that book has me intriqued. I'll check it out!
Hey Debbie, ouch! I have actually been called obese before. well actually I saw it on my chart which was just as bad. I'm 5'2 and used to weigh 213lbs. I'm down to 160 but I know I am capable of packing them back on in no time. Especially because not only do ya crave the carbs but once they are on they don't want to go away. Let us know what your pcp says though.
Bab's I'm a coke a holic too. can't live without it. Thanks for the prayers I know I can always count on you! ((((((bab's))))).
Stacie, lol I hate skittles, but I love pudding. and I could try the fat free. They usually are pretty good. I thought about trying that keifer stuff but I'm not sure if that would help or not. I can eat some fruit but the veggies I have trouble with. I love raw vegies but I wear dentures and I need to get them refitted because my gums have shrunk and it hurts to eat hard food. Unfortunately my bank account says not this month and my insurance won't cover getting them adjusted. I'm probably the only person in te world that takes their teeth OUT to eat! lOL.
Hey Marji, When I first read your post I tried to invision a little debbie on steroids LOL I guess I read that wrong. LOL. Heck i'm up for sawdust if it works. Might be a little rough on the collon though. I've been craving a baked potato real bad but I don't have them around the house. Besides if I did I'd want butter sour cream bacon bits broccoli cheese ect ect ect. LOL. I know I'm gonna dream of food tonight.
Hey Gretchen , nice to meet ya. I've been away awhile. Things have been a little rough but for today I feel pretty good. Unfortunately the side effect is the screamin munchies.! I could invision you plowing people down to get to the fridge! LMBO. LOL that was too funny. but oh so true.
Well thanks again everyone. I'll sleep good tonight knowing your all out there on my side. I have a rheumy appt tomorrow. It's not until 300 oclock though. Hopfully he has some suggestion about what I can do. My lungs are so bad every extra pound makes it hard on my heart. So I really have to get a handle on this. Part of it might be partialy the moving and stuff has me nervous. but that doesn't explain the crab crave. No sandwhich is safe around me.
love a guys
