My husband had his audiologist appt. yesterday and he said that he was told that his hearing loss was not as dire as his regular doctor had thought. He said the hearing loss he had was typical of people his age and that at this time hearing aids were not a requirement. He also said the ringing in his ears was a result of the hearing loss (which I have said before to him) and that his hearing loss was in the high frequency area.
My daughter has a little scare on the horse she was riding yesterday when the horse got spooked and started galloping at a high rate of speed, but according to her instructor she handled it very well. I was busy with my son doing his schooling while waiting for her so I'm sort of glad I missed it because I probably would have freaked out, LOL. I'm glad that she had the maturity and presence of mind to know what to do and that she didn't panic because I probably would have. I panicked just riding a horse in Pigeon Forge (granted it was different because we were on mountainous trails so I had good reason to freak out, LOL) and the horse was about as slow as molasses, but I know I would have seriously freaked out if the horse would have started galloping at full speed!
I'm still feeling extremely exhausted and will be so glad when this passes. I know I've been whining about it for days (whine, whine, whine, LOL) but it makes it so hard to get what I need to get done when I don't have a lot of energy.
I was watching Oprah last night because Jennifer Hudson was on there and I wanted to see how she looked in person (vs. seeing pictures) on the tv and she looks absolutely amazing! I keep hearing her say that she was a size 6 and that she never dreamed she could get that low. I kept having thoughts in my head while watching it about whether I should try for less than 130 pounds since she mentioned that she just kept doing what she was doing before and the weight came off.
I know there is a certain weight point that I shouldn't go lower than as I would probably look ridiculous, but I just wonder about going down to the 120's. I wouldn't be going lower than is safe for my height and since I'm short (5'4 1/2") every pound shows up on me easily.
I will cross that issue once I lose this last pound that will make me officially at my old "goal weight" but it's so close that these issues are on my mind. I just wonder if I am quitting or giving up too easily if I stop at 130 pounds although I'm in the normal range of BMI now.
