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.
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.
