Today is the first day I feel totally, 100% back to good health and energy. That illness and migraine really sapped me for a week, but it's all gone now and I am very thankful the cold didn't turn into a sinus infection. The sun is shining and that helps my mood and energy, too!
This morning, I finally had my appointment with the specialist for my and my son's MTHFR diagnosis. He was very helpful and supportive, and told me that one of the issues with MTHFR is difficulty in healing. He prescribed special B vitamins and another supplement for me to take and said they should help with my energy and may even help my plantar fasciitis to finally heal. I am still taking the meloxicam that the rheumatologist prescribed, too.
Spring is my favorite time of year. I love seeing the new grass sprout up and feeling the days get longer. It's also easier for me to stay on plan in the warmer weather; drinking cold stuff like shakes and eating cool crunchy salads feels amazing in summertime, but not so much in the winter. I'm so glad the winter seems to be going away early this year! I have said this before... I want to be done with the Medifast 5&1 part of my plan *this year.* I want to reach maintenance *this year*... and I am doing everything I can to make that happen.
