Now that I have ILD interstitial lung disease from the SS my lung dr. wants me to lose 20 lbs as soon as possible. I also am supposed to have knee replacement therapy but need to lose 50 lbs before that can take place. Losing weight has become my main obsession and I have had to resort to getting 1000 calorie meals from a group that makes the food and offers weight loss exercise. The meals are great and I have lost 8 lbs in 1 and 1/2 weeks.
I can't cook and can't shop due to degenerative disc disease so this has been my last resort to get the meals I need. SS can wreck you in so many ways. I am dismayed to find myself in this state and I feel upset with myself for letting things get to this point. I am still doing the imaginary thinking that tells me that things will magically get better when I feel better - tomorrow maybe... I need to concentrate on this weight loss thing because otherwise I ignore the realities and live in the land of nod, hoping I won't REALLY have to deal with all of this. Reality is scary and things can get away from you so fast.
