Monitoring My Success :-)
April 7, 2012
As of this date I have lost a total of 40 pounds since being released from the hospital!!! Wow! I am jazzed! I am now into a size 16-18 pant – down from a size 24. All this and I still have not been able to do any intense exercises due to the tendonitis that was caused by two of the medications that I took.
Imagine – taking just 5 little pills caused me to be HOBBLED! I now have a big knot at the back of my Left Achilles Heel, the tendons and calves of both legs are damaged to the extent that even walking for any amount of time/distance is extremely uncomfortable!
The good news is that I am an Herbalist, and am taking the herbs to counteract and heal the damage. The Dr. wanted to put me on a prescription for the pain and another one to ‘promote healing in the area’. HAHAHA! That’s not going to happen!
Instead I am using a couple of additional AIM products that will provide the necessary herbs for the tendonitis AND address a few other issues at the same time. In addition to taking my BarleyLife (for whole Body Health and Cellular Regeneration)
AIM’s Composure 6 caps at bedtime (to relax the muscles and keep my legs from having what feels like Charlie-Horses, all the time),
and I’m soaking my feet in AIM’s Cell Wellness Restorer (CWR)
to help rebuild the muscle and regenerate any nerve damage.
Considering how bad things were I am really making some great headway! The way I have it figured, I should be able to use a treadmill in a few weeks – then the weight will REALLY start to drop off!
In the meantime I am juicing at least one meal a day – usually breakfast. Lots of Fruits and vegetables.
Here are a few of the Breakfasts I have prepared in the last couple of weeks:
Melons are GREAT for weight-loss! I always try to eat them in the morning, that way they help work off the water you are retaining throughout the whole day. This really came in handy after having 5 gallons of water pumped into me in the hospital – now that it is all gone – I’m eating the melons because they taste so dang GOOD!
Well, that’s about it for now – I have to get to work on a few projects that have been waiting for me. LOL
Hope you enjoy this post and are getting some good ideas for your nutritional program.
Hugs, Prayers & Blessing to all.
