Wednesday diet report

I lost one pound in the past week, which puts me at 160.5 pounds. Cliff gained 1/2 pound, to 243.5.  His blood pressure this morning is 131/73, which is good.

We neither one did well over the weekend.  We were helping Joanna celebrate her vacation, what can I say?  We couldn't send her home without a taste of Kansas City barbecue.  Then, since the Dallas chat room reunion was taking place and we couldn't be there, of course we had to have some Blue Bell ice cream (made in Texas).

Cliff's been having a problem with severe heartburn when we take our daily walk; Tums were helping at first, but now they don't touch it.  He has a doctor appointment in the morning, and we'll make sure it isn't anything more serious; if it isn't, then perhaps the doctor can give him a prescription for something that will help.

Cliff's also having a motivation problem when it comes to eating right:  temptation is everywhere, and it's getting harder and harder for him to resist.  I'm trying to do my part by keeping him on the straight-and-narrow while he's here at home during the week.

He'll probably get a precsription for the "little purple pill" ........Nexium, I believe. Jim and I have been on it for years and it really works.   Anne

I was on nexium for sever heartburn.  Worked wonders, but my insurance will no longer pay for it.  I take prilosec otc now.  It's over the counter but It works!

Congrats on the weight loss!  I know it's such hard work!
Make sure Cliff isn't eating or drinking coffee just prior to the walk.  Maybe that'll help too.  Let us know what the doc says!

Congrats on the weight loss. I used to take a lot of the meds for acid reflux then they started conflicting with my b/p meds. Ken raised the head of our bed 2 inches and that helped more than anything. That is what the Dr said to do along with giving me a list of foods to avoid. I now take sugar free tums and that works for me. Helen

Not only is Blue Bell ice cream good, the factory is nice to tour. Paula

The temptation can really get to you. I was having a bad sugar craving last night.

of course you  need some ice cream, LOL who wouldn't. I hope Cliff can resist it all. Hope things go good at the doctors.
