Yesterday I was asked how my hip is doing? Well I do still have arthritis but the bursitis is gone thank heavens. That was horrible and I hope I never get it again. When I exercise in the pool I am careful because I do know that I could easily injure it again. And the exercise does help the arthritis. They are no longer talking about a hip replacement in the near future. Yay. And the sciatica is also gone now. That was another pain in the a$$. (Literally)
And after a 10 day plateau I started dropping weight again. 212 sticks of butter. I tell you 10 days is a long time not to lose an ounce when you are as careful as I am but it happens and I do know I have to keep plugging. And the longer I go the slower it gets too. I shall win this battle! Sarge made me promise and I will! He told me every day how proud he was and I keep thinking about that. Gosh I miss that man... What I'd give for just one more hour with him. I have so much to tell him.
The canasta game was really nice. The gal with the memory problem was not there this week. I lost eighty cents. I was winning two bucks until the last hand and pffft, gone. But any day I can have that much fun for eighty cents is a really good day.
And then there was poker, most of the night I was either even or losing but at the end I won $94.00 so that was really a good day.
And speaking of good days a lady (neighbor that I do not know) stopped me in the mail room and asked my how I was losing the weight. She went on and on about the change and wanted to know everything I do now as far as food and exercise. If anyone knew how much chicken and vegetables I eat they'd run away! Ha. But I don't mind it. Really I don't. Yeah. That's it. Keep saying it.
So today shall find me in the card room playing MahJong with the bestest MahJong gals ever. Win lose or draw, I shall be a winner just be being there. Hope your day is as good as mine!
