Don't Look, Ethel!

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

If I could ever actually learn how to properly use a measuring tape, I might actually be seeing certain non-scale results. This would make me happy. However -- and this is weird because I'm generally rather analytical -- I cannot get a good measurement going on, well, pretty much anywhere. Now, I KNOW that my jacket is fitting better around the hips, but does the tape measure say that? Nope, it says that I gained an inch and a half.

Hmm, maybe I can get my husband to do the measuring sometimes.

    I guess we're measurement-challenged. Perhaps someone will get a grant and study us. :)

I love your dogs! What are they looking at?

    I can relate to that. I've pretty much given up on measuring because all it manages to do is discourage me. I know my clothes are fitting better but the tape measure sure doesn't show it.

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.
