Made my first minigoal!

Monday, March 03, 2008

It was 17 lbs. off and I actually blew it away -- I'm already at 19.2 lbs. off!

Next goal: 16 lbs. I expect to be done, er, some time around the middle of May.

And the fun just doesn't stop

Sunday, March 02, 2008

Now, I like my dentist. And I may have misheard or not paid good attention when this was explained to me, or whatever, but what happened 2 days ago was not the very end of my dental fun. Instead, it's just a little side trip. They implanted a stem and then in 3 or 4 more months (because this stupid thing is going to take a freakin' year whether I want it to or not) -- for some unknown reason -- I'll get a crown. I don't know why there's a delay before getting a crown. No one explained any of that to me, I'm certain of that.

Nothing I can do about it now, of course. Just a massive pain. I hate wearing the bridge. I hate having to care for and remember the bridge. I hate the cost of all of this stuff. I hate the drugs, the inflammation, the cosmetic fun that all goes along with this. I am well aware that this is not a huge problem in the grand scheme of things but I am still PO'd big time.



Minimal pain

Saturday, March 01, 2008

I've been okay re the implant. It was really just the stem part of the tooth. The actual crown won't be added for another few months. And then -- oof -- it'll be about a year of this nonsense. I am monumentally tired of having a bridge with all that goes along with it (e. g. keeping it clean, taking it out and putting it in, not losing it when it's out, not grossing people out with it, etc.).

But I am farther along towards it being done, and all without a lot of pain. I was worried that I'd be flat on my back for days, and such is not to be. I think mainly I'll take it for sleeping, so that I don't have any throbbing.

Tomorrow, I have to go to CVS and pick up thyroid meds. So hubby and I are going to walk instead of me driving there. It'll be a good 30 mins or more each way, and going there is uphill. I only did the resistance bands today so this will be a major change.


Out of sorts day

I'm having dental implant surgery today. Oof. So entries and info might be sporadic for a few days. My diet is going to consist, mainly, of yogurt and soup. Oh joy.


Who cares what games we choose?

Thursday, February 28, 2008

There's something about lyrics. If you asked me if I pay attention more to music than to lyrics, I would/will always answer: "lyrics".

And they mean something to me. Perhaps that's trite but I get something out of it. I'm going through the weight loss journey, looking for clues, and at times I find them in music.

The other day, I had on a CD of 60s music, and "Incense and Peppermints" (by The Strawberry Alarm Clock) came on. Now, it's kind of a strange song to be working out to as the tempo shifts. So I listened to the words as I was doing crunches, and it resonated with me:

Who cares what games we choose?

Well, who, indeed?
