Doing a happy dance --- finally!

If you'd like to know more about where I've been in my health journey, you can find my former intro in my blog dated 6/26/2011, 3/30/2011, 9/16/2010 and 7/10/2010.

Had my annual visit with my doctor this month and had great news! Didn't have any lingering symptoms or physical problems to report. I feel great!

Had my annual visit with my doctor this month and had great news! Didn't have any lingering symptoms or physical problems to report. I feel great!

Good news on my bloodwork .. especially whether or not my bone is regenerating since my osteo diagnosis. For now it looks like the Fosamax and diet changes are working! Next year my density will be checked again. Cholestrol was a bit out of range, but tolerable.

Non-fat yogurt, almond milk in my coffee, LF cheese and yogurt smoothies by Main Street Cafe are in my daily diet, along with a couple of calcium chews (vit K included), and a calcium citrate and vitamin D tablet at night.

Hope to lose 10 pounds, although I'm happy to be able to maintain my weight with just a 1-2 pound variation, despite the extra calories some calcium-rich foods have that I'm eating now.

Only physical problem I'm facing now is a bunion is forming on my left foot (the foot that was giving me problems because of plantar faciitis). I actually thought it was gout .. but no .. I can now see a small bulge and my big toe is shifting to the left.

My doctor suggests I wait for surgery as long as possible. If you've been in a similar situation, would you agree?

Read your info on your page. So glad your doing better! And being pro-active in your health!
Thanks for re-welcoming to the book club as I am a blonde and joined twice. Lol.
About your bunion question I think it depends on if it's bothering you? If so I would go to another Dr. Just my 2 cents.
Happy August.

Thank you for your comment. I really didn't realize I was doing anything wrong. I thought it was ok just to link to my blog. It's not like I asked anyone to ever buy anything, which I wouldn't do! :( I just feel sick about this. I only added the ads last week anyway, and I haven't even earned anything yet.
