Sorry for not updating for so long. We are having some kind of phone issue. Everytime i think it is fixed, it happens again. Basically we have no dial tone, and when people try to call us they get a busy signal. After awhile it finally lets go, but then it starts again. Ugh!! Hopefully after Xmas we can finally solve the issue.
I finally made it, though barely. My scale now alternates between 198 and 199 and has for several days, So I can offically say I am less than 200 pounds. I treated myself to a cheap cd player (for when my son won't share the IPod his gramma gave him) and BOOH (Bat out of Hell)III.
Yesterday I spent way too much money. I got Warren some things for his new Ipod as well as a new video game for his Ps2 (he wants a ps3, but at these prices, not gonna happen. If we wait a few months, like say till his brithday in June the price will go WAY down, adn the stores I'm sure will be loaded with them. The whole rush to get, over priced, not in stock, everybody gotta get it now bit, is just a marketing ploy. They always do that, to drive up demand and get publicity.. It's stupid... and of course people fall for it. They don't make enough on purpose, its not accident, it's intentional...but I digress.
I also finally invested in cheap measuring tape and finally have some measurements. I dont' know what my starting measurments are but I've gone from a 26/28 pants size to a 14/16 pants size, in one year so I've done fairly good in my estimation. I'm at the point right now, where most plus sizes are too big, but "regular" sizes are too small, so trying on pants is a double nightmare. Never mind trying to find clothes with these figures. (in Inches- I'm a lazy American)
wrist: 6.5 (the one I broke 12 years ago is 7 inches)
neck: 13 inches
height: 5 ft 3.75 inches (I've shrunk .25 inches???)
inseam (floor to crotch) 29 inches
Trying to shop for jeans, with measurments like this is enough to make a grown woman cry, it's a total nightmare on any street. I must have tried on 30 pairs yesterday to find one marginally good pair. Thank god for consignment shops, they were Old navy and only cost $7. I also splurged on a Hard Rock sweatshirt that was so comfy I didn't want to take it off, it was only $10 and I fit into and XL, No more xxl or xxxl's for me, EVER!!
My physical went great, I think. I won't know my blood levels or my pap results until next week at the earliest thanks to the lovely holiday. My doctor was most impressed by my weightloss. And both my diastolic and my systolic blood pressure have dropped 20 points from where they were a little over a year ago. I'm back in the normal/borderline zone. I think it would have been lower had the nurse not been in such a hurry that I was barely in the door adn out of my coat before they called my name, 30 minutes before my appointment. My temp was also off, or else I'm hypothermic, they tried three times and it was only 95 each time. No wonder I'm always complaining that it is cold.
