I finished New Moon last night. I suppose that means I have to get the next book. Le sigh. ;) I'm worried about my old kitty Ashley as she is peeing 8-12 times per day. I need to get her into the vet. She is going to turn 17 years old this summer, but I want her to be healthy and happy, so I need to figure out what I can do to help with that.
I wanted to share with you my happy but somewhat chunkier self. Craig is SO SWEET. I'm about 5lbs over goal weight and I was saying, "Wow, come cuddle my somewhat chunkier self!" He told me that he likes it and is actually even more attracted to me than when I was at my thinnest weight. I sort of agree. I feel more like a woman at a size 6/8 than I did at a 2/4. Plus, cuddling feels so much better and being in less pain is awesomely worth it! (the two are only slightly related, but the meds do make maintaining a very low weight harder). While I have a hard year of work ahead of me, this is the healthiest I've been! I'm in the normal BMI range and for once, feeling quite good physically.
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.
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.
