Maybe that’s not a lot of weight, but I’m happy about it . I didn’t go to the gym at all, the gym hurts my back too much, but it was all that walking I did at my new job (which also killed my back, but I was getting paid). I was a runner all week, running meds to patient rooms and, mostly, to nurses’ med cabinets. I was also eating a little bit less, but I credit most of it to the walking I was doing.
I’m a runner this week, too, for the cancer units, so maybe I’ll lose some more weight . It’s a children’s hospital, though, so I’ll be running meds such as chemo for little kids with cancer, awfully sad , but I knew what I was getting into when I took the job. I just hope I can handle it emotionally, that I don’t break down crying. I think I’ll be ok, though.
