Summer Summary-Death,Grief, Obesity Hypovenitilation Syndrome

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I last blogged May 19, 2013, my life has been a world wins since, the end of May, my sister who has fought a fight with Lupus for the last 11 years, had her last episode and flare. She was ready and prepared to receive her Angel wings in mid June. This has been a hard time for my family. I miss her daily and trying to work through the grief. Earlier in the year, I had another bad case of Bronchitis, that it what it was called in , but after going to the ER due to prolonged SOB, I was diagnosed with Obesity Hypovenilation Syndrome. This causes you body to swell, in particular my legs and stomach was swelling, my knees were hurting. It was not Bronchitis, but this OBHSyndrome. I have been placed on 24 hour oxygen. This causes a lack of oxygen, because my lungs were not getting the message to produce enough oxygen for my size. Some of the medical literature that this may be connect to a brain defect. I had a brain tumor removed in 2009. I have my first episode of swelling within six months of surgery. I gain 10lbs in four days, during a time when I was tracking and writing my food. This weight gain was insist with my food, but my md treated as I was just gaining weight. My shortness of breathe was to bad and my pulse was dropping to treat this weight gain was just bad diet. I am applying for disability. I am working to rebuild my strength. I am seeing a nutritionist and I have a set of new meds with new doctors.

I am trying to grief, my loss of my sister, it is hard we start a million times a day!! If any one has experience OBHSyndrome, please let me know what helps, what does not. I am hoping to begin water aerobics soon.

    Don't worry about the clothes yet. Focus on the sparking and the exercise/food and soon you will HAVE to buy new clothes! emoticon

    Even if you buy a smaller size and it's a bit tight, it will be even more incentive to try it on week after week to watch it fit better and better until you need to go even smaller. Keep up the great work and you will see results!

    Maybe you can make that your reward for reaching your goal? Buy a new outfit? I want new workout clothes and a hair cut but I am waiting until 15 more pounds come off. It is really motivating me because my hair is too long and it is driving me crazy! LOL

Sparking into April

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

I am ready for the winter blahs to be over and I have set a goal to lose eight pounds this month. My old gym closed so I went today to find another spot to strength train and to get healthy. But they do not have a pool, but I have one in mind that I can go to for a little bit of cash. My veggies eating and water drinking is improving. I am working on my vitamin regimen. I met with a therapist today for the first time and I am going to tackle the depression/anxiety bear that keeps hitting me. Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

    Eating well is the smart thing to do...not surprising that you're starting to feel results. Reading Sparkchantal's comment reminded me of a favorite smoothie with a banana, yogurt, and peanut butter. Give that a try, too. Also important is to get enough sleep. Take care!

    one good way for fruit lazies are smoothies... ever tried it?
get a blender, chop up fruit, esp. bananas, add milk or even fizzy water, joghurt etc, blend away, and you have breakfasts, snacks, desserts on hand for the week.
and you can find gazzillions of smoothie recipes on spark.
