Our doctors here are not very progressive and they tend to just tell you to take OTC meds. The doctor told me to take both zantac and prilosec at the same time. I did and they made me worse. I need someone who knows what they are doing and they is next impossible around here.
We have that desire to increase our focus in common. I have kept a lot of the weight off partly because I had been "trying" to lose more. I put that in quotes though because I really wasn't trying very hard and the weight was inching up. I know full well what that will mean if I don't pay more attention and my sparkeversay kind of put it in my face when I went to the page and saw that I haven't been posting blogs as much and other "coasting" behaviors. Let's face it. There may be people out there who can make lifetime changes while losing their wt. and never have to think about it again. That's certainly not me!
I have done a couple of the challenges so far and can say the fiber challenge has really been a keeper for me. I have been getting my fiber all but a rare day or two in the time since that one. It helps to fill me up and I hope cleans out the cholesterol. Labs coming up this month might prove that...I hope.
It really is about our health and I guess we just need to keep trying to learn how to do that best...the weight hopefully will come with that.
