I think you look really good. I haven't been comfortable sharing that I thought you'd been looking a wee bit ... I dunno, bony? in some previous shots. I am surprised that 5lb can make that visible a difference?
Well, from my very lowest weight (which was quite a bit under my goal), I'm 24lbs more, so quite a bit. That's good because I was throwing up a ton when I was that low and I was actually underweight. I'm over my actual goal by 5lbs, so I would like to drop those, but mostly I'm just thrilled to finally be feeling healthy and in less pain. The last 10lbs I've gained though you can tell a big difference.
Oh, now the visible different makes much more sense!
At my smallest I could see all the ribs through the front of my chest. I also would hurt my hips to just even lay down on most beds due to the bones being so prominent. While I could use to lose the extra 5lbs of vacation and other unneeded snack eating, I like it much more than how very thin I was for awhile because it's nice to not feel as weak and ill.
i loved the twilight series... much to my chagrin
if you want some more trite drivel i also really enjoyed karen moning's fae series.
It isn't so much that I love the Twilight series, it's that I'm now addicted to the storyline despite much of the series making me roll my eyes due to teen angst. While it won't make the list of my favorite fantasy series of all time, I must indeed finish them all!
I felt the same way reading.. I was like I cannot believe I am this addicted to this story line!
I blamed PP.
I read all 4 in those weeks zander was in the hospital after birth.. twilight and new moon in those 2 days I was at the hospital and he was at the other and I needed a distraction...
I even read the leak of midnight sun..
I LOVE Karen Marie Moning! And she writes some of the hottest sexiest scenes. She's going to a dark place with the Fae Fever series with Max and Barrons, much less sex, and she warned us from the beginning they weren't romances. But I still love her and can't wait for the next installment.
Thanks! I like being a bit softer, but you will see panic if it keeps climbing.
As soon as you are able, I would get kitty to the vet. UT infections are very common older cats. Peeing often is the first sign.
P.S. I think you look great, very happy and healthy. :)
thanks! I wish we weren't leaving town this weekend because I am worried about her.
Yeah, I was so tired of throwing up, feeling weak, and not having the energy to stay up past 8pm. It's WAY better now, so I'm thrilled.
I will freak out about weight if it keeps creeping up. It's up to me to figure out this maintaining stuff and not go crazy on either side.
i also agree that you look great! at the same time i understand your desire to lose those 5 to get back into your safe range too. i had a similar experience (hit low weight while ill, realized it was too low, gained back to my revised goal when i got better) but unfortunately i failed and just kept gaining after i got back to my goal.
Thanks! You had a baby too though, right? That is more of a challenge.
I was too thin but it's super hard to control. It took me medication changes and effort to get back to a more normal (less emaciated) size, but now it's really hard to stay at a size.
You look great, but it's even better that you're feeling better!
Thanks! I think the less pain really shows in person. It's fun to have other thoughts besides "Owwww!"
Yay you for feeling less Pain! I'm happy you're happy :)
Thank you! It was wonderful to be in less pain on a vacation too. Travel in Belize is not easy, and travel even within the US is hard on my body, but what a difference!
