People say I write too much usually, but I don't have a lot of time right now so here I go...challenging myself to be brief.

* I went to the doctor. She took blood for a thyroid test, but think I'm just generally a cold person and losing 65 pounds has caused me to be even more cold without that extra insulation. She also pricked me for a glucose test. 118 after about an hour of eating a fig bar = really good, they said. As for the plateau and the 3-week TOM? Basically, she told me to just deal. The Depo takes 6-12 months to regulate finally (I'm on month 5) and the plateau will break eventually.

* This morning I ate scrambled eggs, some hasbrown potatoes, and one slice of bacon. I tried to eat a biscuit, but could only manage one bite. No matter what, I just don't eat like I used to anymore. It was a high calorie breakfast, but manageable. I'm not breaking my goals just because I'm P.O.ed at the scale.

* Today's workout? About 45 minutes of tennis with the Hubs and then 2 hours of cleaning/detailing my car. Yep, it took me that long, it was a MESS! It's still not 100% but I had to rush to get to the doctor's office. As for the tennis - we're both getting better. I've got a pretty good jump serve worked out, and we had one pass were we got like 7 returns! It felt good!!

* I'm about to leave (as soon as Hubs returns or I track him down...he went to get tires on his car 3 hours ago!) for my mom's house. I'm taking my oldest, Logan (11) and we'll be there through either Sunday night or Monday afternoon. RAVENSONG is already on her way there (I'll still beat her! *lol*) and will spend the weekend with us! I'm so excited I can hardly sit still and I'm acting all goofy crazy today! Should be a great weekend!

* Pray for my mom Sunday. (Go stop by her page and wish her luck if you'd like - she's SNOWFLAKE57 on my friends list.) The Dayton Corridor Classic 5k (Walk). The crew includes: Myself, my mother, my younger step-brother, my oldest son, my sister, my 2 nieces, and Becky (RAVENSONG). All we're hoping for is my mom's safe finish, time does not matter. Wish us luck!

    Who says you write too much? You're an EXCELLENT writer. i love all your blogs, even when it's stuff that I haven't personally experienced, it's like sitting down with you and having a conversation. Your writing voice is so incredibly personable!

    Great job on your car - I really need to buckle down and clean mine too- uugghhhh.
    Best of luck to your mom! Sounds like a great family experience :)

    Good luck on the 5k walk! I am cold all the time as well, but my thyroid hormone levels are normal, so I think it is just an adjustment period. I almost always have a polar fleece jacket with me. Check out Sahalie.com - they have comfy "butter fleeces" for 19.99 in awesome great colors. No I don't own stock there, just love a comfy shirt and being warm :)

    I love your long posts. Your writing is beautiful and entertaining; your insights, illuminating. I'm a tech writer turned techy-wannabe. Bullets are my favorite tools to avoi building good transitions. I like reading your transitions. Okay, enough about the writing.

    Becareful with that thyroid. Getting it adjusted correctly is a crazy thing. I completely lost control of my body temperature this week as we tried to adjust my levels.

    Have a great and safe drive. Absolutely will stop by your Mom's page.

    That's great on the tennis! You are going to have fun this weekend and I will stop by and wish your mom good luck, too!

    (I had a high calorie breakfast myself but I am sure that I will eat a reasonable lunch and exercise for about an hour this afternoon. That is way better than when I used to eat 5000+ calories a day and not exercise at all. Progress!)
