Old/New News: Labs (Cholesterol, Thyroid, Ultrasound)

Monday, September 17, 2012

Old News I haven't blogged for posterity:

Cholesterol went wacky. Need to find labs.

Thyroid: got better. Rx lowered from 125mcg to 100mcg. Retested lab scheduled tomorrow.

Abdominal ultrasound: Uterus measures 9.4 x 3.5 x 4.6cm. Small .9cm hypoechoic region posteriorly in the fundus - possibly small fibroid. Sm. amt of fluid noted at cervix vs a tiny nabothian cyst. No pathologic appearing adnexal fluid noted.

Well, that tiny nabothian cyst is sure bugging me when I run. I wonder if I feel it now that I've lost weight? ARgh.

(Sorry that the time line is off as I've not been posting regularly. You get the picture though.)


Starburst. Potato Chips.

Friday, September 07, 2012

That's all I crave. What else can I say but that my middle gut is a swishy mess of newly added Starburst & Potato Chips - 10 lbs so far. I started out good today and it ended badly.

I will try yet again tomorrow.

I've been trying to run again. I'm sore; and that's likely because my eating has been SO off with the low-histamine. Today's bfast after my run was leftover salmon (leftovers = higher histamine), watermelon. I juiced up some romaine and cilantro because I was to get an abdominal ultrasound to check what the heck's up with my ovary??? I dunno the source of my pain, but it's a try. Doc's PA didn't think it was a hernia, so ... the ultrasound tech said he couldn't even see the rt. ovary; let's try a vaginal ultrasound. He was discreet and left a towel over my bottom half as he let me guide in the curling iron looking thingy. :P Anyway, I had to drink 40-50 oz of water so my bladder was filled. The tech said it helps like a window to see the other organs but that he couldn't see the ovary at all. It's a good thing to not see the ovary cause if you do, then it's big with "tumor child" or something. I asked if it was cause I was fat, and he said "no" that we needed to proceed on to the vaginal ultrasound. Report from the radiologist to be send by Tuesday next week and not sure how long before my doc contacts me w/results. Can I tell you how grateful I am to pee? Yes, my new grateful is to pee. Ahhh. All's right with the world. It's the small things that are really BIG.

Gotta go.

P.S. There's no such thing as "Starburst potato chips" - that's reference to how much they're on my mind - I think about them like that over and over - lol. Starburst. Potato chips. There, I added periods.

Still Angry

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Much has transpired emotionally, but I'm mostly in an
ANGRY emoticon ANGRY emoticon and SAD emoticon SAD emoticon place.

Food: I've been all off plan eating plain yogurt, salsa and corn chips and Starburst. I've gained back 6 lbs and boy can I feel it! I really liked being 171 and so close to 160ville. I look forward to when I'm back there, so at least I still have some gumption left. I gotta go walk the dog. I'll try to listen to some P!nk to keep me charged up - cause I feel weak right now.

EDited entry.


Angry Birds

I don't know what that game's about, but that's our family. I'm still an emotional hot mess. I'm tired of hearing DH's voice wane on about himself and his problems. I'm tired of Dd's anger at me!

I have fought and worked my way into this and I just don't throw in the towel that easily. I have fought for everything in my life, why shouldn't I? Perseverance usually pays off. Why is this so hard?

I'm tired.
(Lots edited out, sorry).


I've lost 100 lbs

Monday, July 30, 2012

July 15, 2012

Random before pics. I don't know how much I weighed because I didn't monitor at the time. I know I weighed around 230s-260s when pregnant. I weighed around 250s when dx w/celiac in 2006, then I gained 23 lbs and it has been a SP journey since (up and down, up up down down). But ultimately, 100 lbs is down and I've got pictures. :)

Love the 80s!

More 80s!
