Did you know that hospitals make you gain weight? I had no clue! hahaha
Seriously, tho.. I had the most awful experience of a kidney stone last week and was in the hospital for 2 days on a morphine pump. I've never been so well rested! The only bad part was they wouldn't let me eat and I was HUNGRY. I eventually got a turkey sandwich with mustard and a really bland chicken dinner. Anyway, the point is.. I went INTO the hospital weighing 169.5lbs and came out weighing 181.
So, I consulted with Val who assured me it was due to IV fluids that I was given and then everyone else here on the DS boards backed her up. It's so much like a family here, I just love these people to death! So, I gave it a little time and a week later I am back down to 169.5, just 9.5 lbs from my self-given goal. I think I may have set that too high so I'm kinda rethinkin' it right now.
<-----There's some new pics over there of me in a toboggan hat weighing 169.5lbs and wearing size 10 jeans and a t-shirt my step-son got for me when he was in high school when he was invited to be part of a "tech challenge" at Miami University. He did it two years in a row and I have a shirt for each one, but I've never been able to wear them til now. Yay!
So..anyway, as of today, Feb. 5th, my total loss is 111.5 lbs
