Wheeeeeeeeeeeee! Tried on some dresses and skirts I haven't worn in... erm...twenty years ...and I can get them all on! Some are a little snug in the belly where I had the surgery and of course it will be the last place I lose, but I can get them ALL on! Yes we are talking the 80's and shoulder pads, but I like em and they are all still in fab condition! Some are 24s...Have you ANY idea how long it has been since I could even get my big toe in a size 24? *grins* Well, obviously ya do if you have been reading this blog!
Oh boy, talk about motivation! *Does happy dance*. If I can lose a bit more, I won't have to buy a new dress for this year's holiday party. *giggles*
I finished my room! Huzzah! I know, sounds like such a small thing...but it is one giant step for Kimmie! It is SUCH an amazing feeling, so calm and peaceful. I don't feel so scattered!This may be the start of fall cleaning for me. I want everything done by October 1st! I am so grateful that my energy is returning. Now that I am feeling better and better, I find I am less inclined to spend so much time on the computer! YEA me!

Yes I do have hyperthyroidism. I started the meds immediately after the test was completed. They seem be helping. The palpitations are not as bad; they are less frequent and farther apart. HUZZAH!
He still wanted me to wear the heart holter, so I am walking around work bra-less *ugh* and hooked up to 7 or 8 electrodes attached to a small box I wear on a belt. Argh! I'm allergic to the tape they applied to keep the electrodes on. No shower until it is removed tomorrow morning*UGH* and stay away from microwave ovens. A dear friend told me to think of it as wearing a tricorder. (Star Trek reference) *LOL* I love her!
My energy level seems to be slowly returning, but I am afraid I have gotten used to being a lay about. Now I need to get motivated to move again. Hopefully I can get my tush in gear in the next few days, start small and work my way up to being busy again. I have managed to only gain the 3 pounds I mentioned in an earlier post, so I'm doing something right.
Tomorrow two of my dearest friends are coming into town for the Star Trek Convention being held this weekend! I cannot wait to see them! I may even pop into the con, Sir Patrick Stewart is attending, and I would LOVE to see him!
Anyway, life is returning to semi-normal and I look forward to feeling better day by day.
Bright blessings and lots of love,
P.S. On Sunday, for Lammas I made homemade whole wheat bread and tried my hand at my first scones. YUM!

My apartment must be really dark compared to everyplace else! *LOL* I would have sworn my hair looked red! However, in the light of day and under office lighting, it looks light golden brown. *sighs*
In any event, I am radioactive and ready for my first scan. I am feeling better every day, and I have to wonder how much of that is due to the fact that I have a better idea of what is going on now. Yes I am still really tired, but there is a sense of hope and expectation now. The only good thing about this most recent condition is that has has kept me from gaining too much weight from the beta blocker. I have only gained three pounds which is great!
Have a wonderful day, lots of love,

I finally heard from my doctor’s office with the results of my thyroid blood work…ONLY two weeks after they took the blood. *deep sigh*
It is what I suspected and hoped for, I have hyperthyroidism. Yes, I know! This is a very strange thing to be happy about. I know that it is easier to manage and take care of my thyroid than it would be to manage and take care of a heart problem.
I am having a Thyroid Uptake and Scan this Thursday and Friday to see just exactly what is going on in there. He is putting me on an antithyroid med, which I will begin taking after my uptake and scan. He is keeping me on the beta blocker for now. *sighs* I do feel better, but dang, I am always so freakin tired. I figured I would be feeling so much better by now, and have so much more energy.
It IS going to get better! I AM going to be so much better than my old self by autumn. I got gypped out of my favorite time of year last year due to being so sick, I am NOT going miss this one! I can’t believe next week is August! I have so much to look forward to in the coming months. FAIRE…The annual party here in town where I see a group of online friends that have become family…The Star Trek Convention! Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! Wheeeeeeeeeeee!
Yep...yep...yep…all it takes is what I consider a little good news! Keep on keeping on!
Bright blessings and lots of love,
