Onderland!!! / Sleep
Wednesday, October 10, 2018
I was scared to step on the scale. I've not been able to work out very much and though I have been eating well, was afraid the lack of exercise would have put my weight loss to a stand still. So I got on the scale, pushed the little bar all the way over (have an old fashioned scale, like the medical ones) and it bumped the end of the scale. OMG. So I moved the bottom weight from 200 to 150 and slid the top weight all the way over... to 197!!! Not only did I meet my goal, I crushed it by 3 pounds! I'm finally in Onederland! I can't believe it! My youngest can wrap her arms all the way around me now. My oldest is afraid that my hugs won't feel the same though. I asked if they feel the same now, and she said yes, and I told her how much weight is gone, 73 pounds, and said my hugs will always be my hugs, whether I have all this extra weight or am at a healthy weight.
Thank you for you support about my falling asleep at the wheel. My doctor finally read the private message I sent him and told me to halve one of the meds I'm taking and to get in to see him this Friday. Boy do I have news for him. I've pretty much slept the last 4 days away! I'm just so tired! Now part of that is my fault. I decided that on the kids fall break I would let myself sleep in, I haven't let myself sleep in for almost two decades. Turns out, I get really groggy when I don't wake up early as normal and can sleep all day. I don't know if it is that or the increase in one of my meds that is doing it. I'll let the doc decide. But I hope to never fall asleep driving my kids to school in the morning ever again. That is so scary, and these roads don't have shoulders you can pull off on except in one place and PTL that was the one place I went off the road, when I went all the way off. Most places have a slight shoulder and then rock or ravines.
Off to see my regular doctor, I think I have an ear infection and don't want it to get too far.
Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day!
