Hot and Humid
Temps and dewpoints in the oppressive range – UGH! This is the time to be thankful for a/c. There isn’t much moving outside except for people in air conditioned cars going from point A to point B. I have not gone for a walk on Sat. or today. I have had some problems with the stomach etc. yesterday and today so have been lying low. I suspect there may be some dehydration going on so I am trying to drink a lot of liquids today. So far – so good :0)! I have lost some more weight – down about 40 pounds so far and still have many more to lose. I’ve lost some inches as well and the next time I do the measurements I will keep track of how many inches I have lost since I started with the measurements. I am also now trying on some of my “smaller” clothes to see what fits etc. Actually I have enough in my wardrobe to fit into until I get down below 175#. Maybe I should open up an exchange store where people can bring in what they aren’t wearing anymore and exchange for the sizes they are wearing??? Well – that sounds good but we already have two of those kinds of stores in town already so I think I will pass on that idea :0)!
Saturday was the first experience I’ve had with throwing up since my surgery. Because it happened about an hour or so after I had eaten, there wasn’t much to get out. My apology if this is gross for some of you. I had taken my morning meds with water about ½ hour after I had breakfast and the dieticians say to wait an hour after eating before drinking anything. So – is that what caused this to happen or was it something I ate earlier??? Today (Sunday) I have been keeping food down (not eating much either) but now it is the bowels??? Same question – something I ate or what??? It could be a combination of both maybe? Searching for answers and there may be none? For now just concentrating on drinking fluids and figuring out what I can do for dinner tonight? May just stick with the old standby – Chicken Noodle Soup.
On a brighter note – I got a perm last Thursday and feel good about that. I am also going to get acrylic nails put on next Thursday. I have never done this before and not sure I will do it again – will see how it goes. It should be an interesting experiment anyway. Until later - Tikki
