Hi guys. Hope all of you are doing well. I've been reading some blogs but not commenting very much. I've weighed the exact same thing for the last 2 weeks which is 248.0 lbs. I ate too many calories to lose this week, but not enough to gain. It took me about a week after getting the Zoloft to start taking it because I kept forgetting...just wasn't in the habit yet. So I started about a week ago....and found out the first day that they were making me very ill...which didn't happen when I took it several years ago...so that's weird. It gives me nausea and makes me very dizzy. So I started cutting them in half. I guess it'll be another couple of weeks to work up to the whole pill and get it fully in my system and working. Just trying to hold it together on all fronts until I can get on an even keel. I've been sitting here at my desk at work inbetween entering insurance claims, trying to put together a good grocery list for the week ahead. That's not going so well...apparently I'm in a food rut and nothing sounds good to me...can't think of what to make...so I emailed Sean and asked him to shoot me some ideas. Still waiting to hear from him.
Nothing major going on this wknd that I can think of.....except on Sunday....taking my baby sister for a pedicure. Next wknd we have another puppy festival and then a friend invited us to a costume party Sat night. We ordered costumes on line...I got a burgundy Renaissance-type gown/dress and Dwayne got a "tavern guy" costume....they look pretty cool, and I was shocked that they actually fit. I usually don't have good luck ordering clothes online, so this was a plus.
Then the next Sat, Oct. 30th, Dwayne wants to go back so Six Flags for Fright Fest like we did last year. I think I'm about 10-15 lbs heavier than I was at this time last year, so I hope I fit on the rides. I'm too scared to go back and look in the archives to see what the weight difference is. Last year was a big deal. It was the first time I'd ridden a roller coaster in over 20 years. The last time before that I was 15 years old, went to an amusement park called Ghost Town In The Sky in Maggie Valley, NC. I got on a ride and they couldn't click the safety bar due to my humongous stomach. They made me get up and get off....walk the plank around the ride to the exit gate....the plank of humilitation. 20 years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday. So yeah....rode all the rides last year...feeling good...and now I'm scared I might not fit this year. I really do NOT want to even try...but Dwayne's a big kid when it comes to Six Flags and he's very excited about going. So I'm going to go, say a little prayer, and hope the safety bar clicks.
Hope everyone has a happy weekend. :)
