Not nearly enough

I do not post nearly enough in this blog. And this post isn't much, as it is mostly something I posted in one of my BGs on FF, with a few more details. I still can't sit at the computer for very long so I'm doing a lot of C&P lately. It frustrates me, because I like to do different posts for each BG, even if I am saying essentially the same thing.

I got weighed at the doctor's office this morning and was 237.5. I was expecting it to be a lot higher since I've been pretty much sedentary for the last 5 weeks (first the sprained ankle, then the car accident). I only gained 1/2 pound since my last official weigh-in, so I'm happy with that!
I really like my new doctor. He's going to be our family doctor, so I did ask around quite a bit and I'm glad I chose him. He didn't make me feel like he was in a hurry to get done with me, and answered all my questions. He also asked me if I wanted more meds (I said no, I've stopped my muscle relaxer and he offered me another but I don't think I need it, and he was fine with that - he said to let him know if I change my mind). He said that OTC ibuprofen and tylenol are fine if they work to help my pain. And, he set me up to start getting physical therapy. That will be awesome, because it will be a set amount of exercise, 2-3 times per week.

Someone stopped by and offered to buy my smashed car, but only wanted to give us $40 for it! The parts we just put in plus the oil change I got less than a week before the accident was over $50. We know we won't get a whole lot for the car since it can't be driven and will most likely only be useful for its parts, but we are sure that we can get more than $40 for it.
