Needed.... Ark

Since Friday we have had 11.5 inches of rain in our rain gauge!  The Mississippi River and the Ohio River are both seriously flooded and they converge 60 miles south of me.  This is all adding up to a not good situation.  My husband hasn't slept through the night in a week as he gets up every couple of hours to make sure the basement is ok.  The river that flows through our town in only 5 feet from the bottom of the bridge.  Luckily we only have to deal with the storm drains backflowing.  I just wish it would stop RAINING! 

This better bring some awesome May flowers!

How you see yourself?

I was watching TV last night.  On Entertainment Tonight they were talking about Kate Middleton and her dress size.  I have always thought that she was a very beautiful woman and also very thin.  They asked some to guess her dress size.  They announced that it was a UK size 8 which is a US size 6.  I was stunned to say the least I would have guessed a US 2 or something.  This leads me to a thought as I am a US size 6 right now.  I totally don't see myself as thin. 

Does anyone else deal with this?  I still feel some days that I am wearing a 20.  Or that I am close to that.  I wear small tops and 6 bottoms.  I have often thought about heading to the children's section to see what I find by way of pants as they used to fit me so well years ago as I am so short.  Yet I still feel like I am fat. 

I felt totally guilty today and confessed to my best friends at work that I had a Mello Yello today.  I hadn't had one in two months, but since I hit 10 lbs to go, I just wanted one.  Then I talked to them about how guilty I felt after I drank it because I may "wake up and have all of the weight back!"  I am seriously f***ed up.  Of course being great like they are they told me one soda wasn't going to put me over the edge and make me gain 70 lbs, then proceeded to give me twizzlers.  Aren't they the bestest!? LOL 

I guess my question to all is "When did you start to feel your size?"

10 lbs

10 lbs is all I have to lose.  I don't ever think that I have went into any weight loss with just that to lose.  It is an amazing feeling.  The scale has been tempting me, but I have claimed it today!  10 lbs...  WOW!

On the mend!

I decided to go to the pharmacy and speak to the pharmacist about options that maybe we could give the doctor on what was small and available in adult portions for liquid.  He was AWESOME!  I explained my situation and he even asked if volume of liquids was a problem.  He offered to call my doctor and talk to him about it.  I was very happy with that.  I now have a liquid antibiotic that the dose is in 2tsp!  Oh and it doesn't taste bad at all!  BONUS!  I am so ready to not be peeing razorblades!


So I go to the dr yesterday as I feel as if I am pissing razor blades. You guessed it... UTI. Figures. Anyway, the concern came when I thought of the horse pills associated with most antibiotics. I talked to him about it and he said that he knew of one that would be strong enough on liquid form. Got my scrip and off I went. 11 pharmacies later, no relief. Apparently, no one carries this drug in liquid form. The ones who offered to order it told me 3 days. I am not waiting 3 days (now 4) to get an antibiotic. So my question to you is does anyone know an antibiotic that is either a small pill or is tolerable as a liquid? I want to call the dr back this morning and see what the options are as I can't take the pain anymore! I have had this since Friday! BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

Wow, has it really been a month?

I can't believe that I haven't posted in a month! I have been reading but just haven't had the time to sit down and put words on paper so to speak.

Weight is good. Sitting at 136 right now. Still have 11 lbs to goal. I am hoping to get there sometime this summer.

The family and I are working on a garden this year. This is our first try at this as we have so many trees in our yard that the shade is too much for vegetables. We rented a spot at our towns community garden this year to try. The boys are also going to work on their gardening merit badges! Here's to luck with some extra vegetables this year!

Work has been ok. We finally got a new contract ratified this week. We had been working without one since the first of December.

I have just passed 10 months out from surgery. I have enjoyed this experience thoroughly. Over 70 lbs lost! I really wish my brother could see me now! He would be so thrilled. I have been going through a lot of pictures lately to create a book for my 2 year old daughter to go through with pictures so that she doesn't forget his face. I realized while going through these how long I stayed large. I don't see now how I allowed that to happen for so long. Goal WILL come and I WILL get there! What a wondrous feeling!!!
