Birthday and a Cortisone Shot and More Weight Loss

So I turned the big 46 back on July 14th. To me birthdays are just another day as far as I’m concerned. The highlight of my day was getting another cortisone shot in my right hip, my hip has giving me some problems for the past two years now and my doctor wants to limit the shots to roughly twice a year. I put off going for a shot for a while but the discomfort was really starting to bother me. It was a relativley an uneventful visit, the shot has seemed to help a great deal, though there’s still some discomfort. I can’t expect miracles having spina bifida, arthritis, and bursitis, the shot has helped, it’s better than what it was.
My weigh in this past Sunday was great, I’m down a total of 55 pounds since January and I couldn’t be more excited. I have to admit the low carb diet works, though i haven’t been as strict as I was. I’m starting to introduce some more carbs slowly into my diet, I’m at about 100 grams per day and I give myself a cheat day once a week. Nothing crazy, just a day where I let myself eat a few more carbs, sort of a re-feed day to re-fuel my body. The downside to the low carb diet is I don’t have any energy, I’m exhausted all the time. I’m hoping to be down to my desired weight by the end of the year, so my urologist can do a urinary diversion surgery (Ileal Loop). With the surgery I’m hoping to have a much more favorable quality of life as life with a Foley Catheter is a pain in the ass. Back to the urologist on Friday for another catheter change, I’ll have an update on Friday night.
Be Well…
