Hmm, I really don't know for sure. I do 100 at a time and then take a breather for a minute. I guess it takes about 10 minutes or so.

I use the same jump rope that I used in high school. (jumping rope was my choice of exercise when I lost weight in high school ) It's a plastic beaded jump rope, with hard plastic handles with a counter in the handle.

My weight is up by another 5 pounds to 225 today.

That makes a fifteen pound gain in three days.

It must be continuing effects of the sodium in the IV as yesterday's sodium was only 1645 mg.

My appointment with my cardiologist went well. He said that my narrowed artery could be controlled by medicine adjustment. He changed my Lipitor from 20 MG once a day to 40 mg once a day and my Lopressor from 12.5 mg twice a day to 50 mg twice a day. He also wants me to take the following over the counter supplements, CO-ENZYME Q-10 100 mg once a day, L-Carnitine 500 mg once a day and Resveratrol 150 mg once a day.

He says I am in great shape and he cleared me for the kidney removal surgery on October 3rd. He also scheduled me for a Lab Chem 7 in his office next Wednesday and a follow up appointment with him on October 13th.

"Krystal" My Cardiologist said my EF was normal and was 50%.

9/15/11 - Thu -goal 1351 calories - actual was 818 (533 under)
My sodium was 1577 mg which is 423 mg under my goal of 2000 mg

I have decided to drop my sodium goal to 1500 mg in view of my single functional kidney and my heart disease. It will be a real challenge to achieve this but I will find a way.

I asked my Cardiologist whether the salt substitute "Also Salt" was safe for me to take and use for cooking. It has 356 mg of Potassium Chloride in a 1/4 tsp serving. My doctor said that since I was tolerating a 500 mg potassium pill each day that using the salt substitute would be OK provided I stop taking the potassium pill if I plan to use the salt substitute. Taking both on the same day would be too much potassium for a single kidney to process.

By the way I had dropped 29 pounds since my last appointment with him and he sure was pleased with that.

Walked one mile today

Good Morning, Everyone! TGIF! Have a fabulous Friday and an even better weekend!

I had to get up an hour earlier than normal. I have some extra stuff to get done before I can start my weekend! TTOM hung around for another day. Yesterday was my last day. It was still shorter than normal, which is fantastic! Hopefully, I will start getting rid of some water weight now.

Weigh In: 145.6
Up: .4

Good morning everyone.

Weigh in this morning was 172. Yesterday was a terrible off plan day. Stress and tiredness led to me eating 3 cupcakes and a bunch of sunchips, obviously outside of plan. So today is my new, fresh day and I'm sticking with it today!

Hope you all have a great day!

Larry But they also said you were dehydrated, right? Have they addressed that so that you are getting enough liquid in your diet? You are bound to gain some wait from the needed water that was missing - now not 5 lbs a day, but some of that weight you gained in the hospital isn't just from sodium... it was to replenish your body of fluids too - and too little fluid is hard on the kidneys too.

No change on the scale for me this morning - but that's good - meant yesterdays one pound drop wasn't a fluke!

That is a good point Melissa, Thank You. I had not thought about that. Of course you are right. With the dehydration in mind, I will not return all the way to my prior weight right away. How much of the 15 pounds is excess fluid and how much of it was restoring me to normal body water percentage I do not know.

It really does not matter because as long as I stay on plan with my eating I will be losing fat. That of course is all of our goals. We want to lose fat, not to worry about water fluctuations now matter how large.

Larry,
