Weigh In

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I actually weighed in yesterday and did not drop 1 pound. I dropped 2!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon It has made my week!

On the flipside however, after 2 weeks of perfect, w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l slumber, I didn't get to sleep at all last night. emoticon So I am seriously draggin like a wagon this morning. My body is super sensitive when it comes to sleep. If I so much as sleep in an extra hour or two in the AM, or take a nap during the day no matter how short, it will adversely affect me at night. I was really tired the night before last and DH thought it was a good idea to turn off my alarm and let me sleep in until 9 yesterday morning. Hence why no sleep last night. I know his intentions were good but he also knows what I go through when it comes to getting a good night's rest. It isn't pretty! One night of no sleep can mean a week or more of disrupted sleep. I have one medication that must be taken in the AM that makes me extremely sleepy when I have had no Zzzzz the night before, so chances of making it through the day without a nap are slim to none. This is where the vicious cycle of napping during the day = no sleep at night comes into play. UGH! Definitely not looking forward to today, or tonight. emoticon

    Wonderful job on your weight loss! I'm sorry about the sleep problems. I used to have trouble staying asleep, but for some reason (hallelujah) this has passed. Hope you can convince your husband to not let you sleep going forward.

    Way to go with the 2 lb weight loss. Sorry about your lack of sleep. I am fortunate that even if I take a nap during the day, I will still sleep at night.

    Take care! emoticon

    Good Job on your weight loss. emoticon I have trouble sleeping sometimes too. I have found over the counter ZZZQUIL to help me. I have tried melatonin and it worked for awhile and doesn't anymore. Oh and I find that the liquid works for me but the pills don't. Don't know why. Just a thought. But if you are on other meds always check with your doc first. emoticon

    Good job on the weight loss. I have had problems such as your with no sleep nights and know of other who go on a couple of hours sleep most every day. Hope you can find a solution to this problem. My solution was a 10 mg Melatonium tablet each night. emoticon

    Disrupted, do I know what you mean. I have not taken a nap during the day in years because of the same reasons you mention.

    Hope your day is not as bad as you expect it to be...have a great one! emoticon
