HYC check in

Well I've been yo-yoing with a pound the past week. This morning's weight was 185.2, so still a net loss of 1.2lbs since last week. I'll take the loss. We went dancing Saturday night. I get a little light-headed if I dance too much, but it was fun. Today I walked on the treadmill for 25 minutes. My heart rate was up to 156, so I didn't want to push it for too long. I'm going to keep it kind of low key for a while. But I'd really like to lose 10lbs by New Year's and get a fab new dress for the gala at The Broadmoor. ;-)

The doctor's visit was still unsatisfactory. He said I'm a "puzzle" and he wants me to try another med. Still have the noise in my ears and it's still driving me nuts. I guess I need to go to a regular doctor and get my ears checked out. I have a follow-up app't with the cardiologist in six weeks. And since he REALLY pissed me off last week, (don't want to go into details right now) if I'm not measurably better then, I'm going to tell him he's fired since he hasn't helped me any, so I choose not to see him again.

Lynn at Actual Scale is having a giveaway for a $50 Amazon card to celebrate her 50lbs lost. Check it out!

If you've developed tinnitus then a regular dr isn't going to be able to do much...I went to a specialist...didn't do much. I'm taking some pills now but not noticing any help at all. A friend is taking the same thing and she is being helped. Maybe I've just had it way too long to be helped...
Know that I'm here praying!
Isaiah 43:1-3a: But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour.

so sorry you still aren't feeling well, and your docs are letting you down. :(

Congratulations on the weight loss! I understand the frustrations of not knowing what is wrong with you! I hope you get your answer soon.

Maybe you should go dancing more often. There is nothing like exercise disguised as a good time.

Hopefully, the docs find out what's wrong with you and soon. Hugs!

I'm sorry you haven't gotten much help. More than likely it's a medication that you're taking, and unless you stop it there's usually not much they can do. And, if it's permanent damage there's really nothing they can do :(
I hope they get something figured out with your issues. Maybe a new cardiologist is what you need.
It seems that the older I get, the less I think they actually know what's going on. It's all guesses we could make.

Congratulations on your loss. I am sorry you aren't feeling better. I think it is a good plan to see another dr if you aren't feeling better soon. Another opinion couldn't hurt.
