South Beach Diet - It's been a bad bad few days & I don't mean food

The story is long, thank goodness the resolution is not. My father has been in the hospital, he has dementia and resides in a home. He had an internal bleed (2nd in one year) that after being scoped again today we still do not know where it is... :mad: He is back at the nursing home tonight, feeling like a new man after some IV antibiotics and some tranfusions.

Despite the lack of sleep, many hospital runs, family fights, :blah: I managed to weigh in this morning at another 1.5 lbs down. AND that was with eating brownies on Saturday night. :D See ladies, this new WOL revs your metabolism in such a way that as long as having a treat does not serve as a can still be successful.

Have some meetings at work the next couple of days, will be checking in but not early in the morning. Take care everyone, I am watching you!! ;)

Sorry about all your stress. Congrats on the loss though, in spite of the brownies. :devil: Hope they identify the source of bleeding for your dad. :chin:

Jen, sending prayers your way. My grandfather had dementia before he passed away, and it was so very hard seeing him like that.
