Sorry everyone... Russian Circus is sort of my pet thing... it's a lame-o circus and all the acts are screwed up because Russia is so poor, but is still comes to town and disrupts things, screws up day to day business and traffic, then leaves a mess for the locals to clean up... part of my hormonal imbalance.
I think my hormones are getting better though!
I feel more like a girl again... which is WEIRD.
It causes my brain not to feel good though. Damn circus.
Any fluctuation in water retention is very bad for me... increases my brain pressure.
This is the one week that no matter how well I manage it, it gets me.
Dinner tonight at my house... braised beef shanks.
A trip to my butcher was fruitful yesterday.
It has been a very long time since I have been under that mark as well.
A good 14 years? I was around that weight when I got married Jan. of 99...
The life issues that have gotten in my way are different. All personal illness since I have been chronically ill since 1997.
Each time I got well enough to lose the weight I'd get sick again, need meds that caused weight gain again, or a year or two of narcotics again, surgeries again... and gain again... It's been a long road.
Until this past year, and my second autoimmune disease, no one ever made any connection between my first disease and gluten intolerance. The research connecting the first disease to intolerance just came out in the past couple of years.
So now is finally the time when I am healthy, healthy enough anyway, and feel confident that I am going to be able to stay that way...
No more sudden relapses, drugs, surgeries, ect.
And even if I do have something happen I know that I can face it and keep marching forward with the same goals I have now.
The past year and a half dealing with a neurological problem has taught me that also.
