I have news. All of it’s good in its own way.

I’ve been making progress on my New Year’s non-resolutions. Following the alternate-day fasting (ADF) eating plan, I’ve lost 10 pounds this month! I keep to 500 calories on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, then eat normally the other four days. It’s actually been remarkably easy to stay on. I get my labs done next week so we’ll see if there has been positive impact on cholesterol, glucose, etc.

In other news, I am now scheduled for my second total shoulder replacement surgery on February 16. This is my fourth joint replacement (the others being hip, knee, and other shoulder). This shoulder has had two rotator cuff surgeries already. The doctor doesn’t believe that doing a scope surgery will provide enough improvement.

Of all the surgeries I’ve had, shoulder replacement was the hardest recovery. This is also my dominant hand, so I’m going to be struggling to do anything until I recover enough to use it.

So that’s all for now. Thanks for checking in.
