hit a wall and I'm going to whine about it
This was a little funny I saw on Pinterest. I think the main reason I think it's funny is this is how my mind works. The scale hasn't moved in the last couple of days. I shouldn't be surprised. This is how it works. But seriously, with what I'm NOT eating, I was hoping for a bit more. I'm also really tired right now too and crampy and grumpy. I think I might actually be coming up on my TOM (and with PCOS...TOM is really Time of the Whenever my Body Feels Like It, rather then Month).
And food...oh my gosh. I didn't realize how much I would miss it. And how many freakin' food commercials are out there. You have to be kidding me. The first two weeks were great because my friends chipped in and cooked for the family. It was GREAT, I didn't have to think about it. But now, I need to plan and cook for the family...normally, I love doing this, but lately, I just feel sad. I wonder if alcoholics feels this way when they give up drinking? I guess the difference is (and I'm not judging which is harder, getting rid of any addiction is hard work)...but the alcoholic doesn't have to make her/his kids a cocktail every night. I have to cook every night.
I almost licked the kids' faces the other night, just to get an essence of whatever they were eating.
I should make them things I don't like...but really I like most everything.
Right now I'm going to look at my ankles...because I have them again and I love that....can't wait to have knees again.
And be happy I'm already off my high blood pressure meds.
Oh yeah, and in talking about the whole weight loss stuff, forgot to mention I got my Master's...yay! I was turning in my last assignment the night before the surgery --- talk about cutting it close.
OK, off my chest, already feeling better!
