Plateaued again

Tuesday, May 22, 2012


I've plateaued again. I'm at 202 pounds still. Just wishing that I was less but it'll take a while to get to where I want to be.

I believe that my T.O.M is coming because my legs are bloated. And a little constipated this morning. I took something for my legs but will wait for my other problem. That goes away. But I do have something for the constipation. I don't take it too often though. If it doesn't clear before I have supper, I will take the medicine.

Thinking about the amount that I weight is making me laugh but not in a funny way. It's the type of laugh that I am happy that I am this small. I can't tell you how it's been that I've been this small. The last time that I remember was December 1990. I weighed 182 pounds, in the 6th grade, and when my oldest brother and his wife got married in Minnesota. I'm 20 pounds away from that.


I got back from walking the dog for the 2nd time, taking dad his morning and afternoon pills, and starting a load of laundry. Now I'm getting onto the computer while waiting for dad to get ready for the day.

Still don't know if my dad's oldest brother wants us to take him to the doctor this morning. We told him to call us at 9am today if he wants us to take him if he doesn't feel like driving. He might think that we are going to take him up. We only offered if he didn't feel like driving. If he calls after 9am and asks if we are coming tkae him up, I'll ask if he feels like he needs us to to then we will.

I feel like I have way too much energy today. More than usual for some reason. It's almost like I'm hyper. Not hyper like a kid who is under 5 years old. But more like a kid in sports. Never felt this way before.


We did take dad's oldest brother to the doctor today and to get a perscription. May have to take him to a doctor in Peoria at a later date. Not sure on that date yet.

Ate a tenderloin sandwich at lunch today. Regret it though and it's not because it was meat (I'm a vegetarian). But it was the texture and how it was cooked. The meat was cooked fine but the crust was burned. No amount of stuff you put onto the sandwich wouldn't help. That's how my homefried chips were yesterday.

I had to take some laxitives tonight. We had 2 pills left and I took them both. It's the medicine that I said that I was going to wait until later to take and I took it at the time that I mentioned. It started to work when I was putting dad's laundry away.

Tomorrow is dad's 76th birthday. No one believes that he'll be that old. He has to have a fasting blood test tomorrow because 2 weeks ago tomorrow when he had for his appointment last week showed that his blood surgar was a little too high for someone who wasn't diabetic. Plus he didn't know that it was a fasting blood test. He knows that this one is though. Friday is my stepcousin's daughter's birthday. Don't have anything for either one right now.

Tomorrow my youngest niece takes her daughter (my grandniece) for her check up to see how everything is. Katelynn will be 16 days old tomorrow. It doesn't seem possible that she'll be that old already. I may get to talk to her on the phone tomorrow.


I cannot wait to go to bed. It's the only place where I can relax. And I do mean relax. Plus I can forget the bad things that has happened in a day. There was a few minor things but they weren't anything. One was waiting longer for dad's brother's meds. About 10 to 15 minutes longer.

Only did 2 walks today with the dog. I'm hoping for more tomorrow if we don't get too busy even if it is dad's birthday.

    Wow you deserve the rest! You have had a busy day! Do you ever use foods to help with constipation? Even with lots of fruit and water I still fight the battle. I have been working on getting more fiber and movement! Would love to hear your ideas?
