I weighed 203.5 this morning - a 4 lb. difference from yesterday. My scales are pretty accurate. I weighed twice because I couldn't believe my eyes. Maybe the 4 lb. loss is the real loss I should have seen when the 2 lb. gain occurred? Could there have been that much water retention from that stupid pretzel and candied pecans? I guess so. I will wait until tomorrow morning before I rejoice too much. My scales only go in half-pound increments so small losses or gains don't register like with the scales that register in tenths. I always notice the thoughts that jump into my head when something like this happens - "I have room to eat some extra stuff today" NOT.
I spent yesterday evening at the emergency room with my husband. He fell down a couple of basement steps and wrenched/jammed his back. He has had two shots in his back for pain and now this. The x-rays showed a compression fracture. He needs an MRI, then a procedure known as kyphoplasty? They pump glue into the vertebrae to fill in the depression where the fracture is. He was writhing with pain and in tears. He was given morphine and a muscle relaxer and given percoset (sp?) for pain. We don't have insurance. He is a veteran so we are checking into the VA Hospital in Dayton to see if he can be treated there. I had planned to try a new recipe last night but ended up grabbing another food bar on the way to the emergency room. Yesterday's food was my usual morning food bar, a small bag of peanuts because I wanted to be growling for supper, and then the food bar for supper in the emergency room.
Are any of you getting the malware/virus warnings when trying to visit sites? I have at Plump Nonfiction and Something Brilliant is Brewing - two sites I have always visited regularly. Do we let those people know or are they notified? I am glad to be notified but miss reading those two blogs. Hopefully this clears up soon. There was another blog earlier where this happened but I can't remember which one.
Take care and make today a success.
