Well I have been sick this last week , with a cold virus. Thought I was better yesterday went to the gym was only able to get through yoga and ride my bike to and from the gym, had a great day with Mary Jo, went out for Indian food. Also went thrift shopping and found that I am now in a size 14 jean got 3 pairs of pants, 2 pairs of jeans that I sorely needed and a pair of Khakis all size 14s. Yay. I am still shocked smallest I have been in 31 years, have all this flab and loose skin that hangs over but what can I do about that? I changed my goal weight to 150 and actually think that that is doable and a reachable goal for this year which I never thought I could get to before. I just have to get well and start back to exercising and working out and focusing. Right now I have to get well. I have been resting and pushing fluids and babying myself and that does not mean eating sweets for once when I am sick which is a whole new mind set . Was so much fun going out with Mary Jo yesterday , has been more than 2 years since we have done that and I dont think we were ever so relaxed before. Today I woke up feeling sick again so I didn't push myself , went to the health food store and got Emergencee and made myself some Thai soup with chicken and vegetables. Ate lightly and pushed fluids.
I couldn't get warm today just felt cold all day, the right side of my neck feels tender and swollen. Shaking my head. Hope it isn't the lymph glands.

Breast Reduction surgery is slated for the 30th , Just two more days to go!
I have many last minute things to do still, new bras to get that I will have to wear 24 hours a day for 6 weeks after surgery, have waited until the last minute to get them because I have no idea what size to get. Even though the surgeon says he will take me down to a B cup or a small C cup I have always gotten a bigger around bra than I have needed to help compensate for not being able to find the larger cup size I have needed so I am confused. I can not even imagine what size bra I need. The whole point in wearing these particular bras 24 hours a day is so that there is no tearing or sagging of the "NEW FORMED BREASTS!" The nurse told me to get bigger than what the surgeon says he is forming because there will be much swelling , and I am thinking ok so I will then need smaller bras after the swelling goes down. Bother. I need a 'BREAST SHOWER" sort of like a Baby Shower, for my new ' babies' . I am nervous about the surgery and the unknown, have never been intubated and with all of my health issues I am nervous. My friend Phil will be with me the first 3 days so I will not be alone so that is a relief. I have to do some cleaning the next few days, get phone numbers of everyone in one place so Phil can call people after surgery for me and passwords for the computer so he can post that I am ok. Have to cook food for us to eat, Phil isn't a cook and I don't want him to go to a bunch of expense trying to feed himself and me while he is here. On top of everything else just found out my repeat Pap smear is still positive 3 months after it was positive, and the yeast infections continue. I don't have diabetes so that is not why the yeast infections continue each month. The doctor gave me 3 difluican pills so I can get rid of the Yeast infection or maybe just the symptoms for the month before I get in to see the specialist for a consultation. There were no lesions when I had the colposcopy in August to biopsy for the pap she thinks everything is inflamed because of the yeast infections. I keep having swelling from the lymph system and the weight is stalled at between 186-191 for now.
It has been awhile since I have felt very well because of these infections. I am seeing a new man, Andrew Patrick Jackson, he is from Jamaica , funny , sweet, kind , smart and he calls me on my know it all ways all of the time! LOL makes me laugh my butt off which is wonderful medicine. He is a great cook so it tells me ( he is modest too ) lol was a coach of basketball, track and field, and soccer ( football ) of champion teams in Jamaica at the High School level . He is a new American Resident meaning he just got his green card, is looking for work, is here living with his elderly mother and near his beloved sister and her family. He thinks I am funny , says every night he goes to sleep smiling at something I have said. That makes two of us smiling.
