  1. woo hoo - this morning at my appointment with my primary doc, we stopped the last hbp med I was on (stopped the main one months ago). I officially no longer have a diagnosis of hypertension!

  2. Stepped on the scale this morning, and for the first time in about 9 years the number started with a 1!!!!!! HELLOOOOO ONDERLAND!

  3. Today was amazing.I went shopping for clothes and for the first time in my life I can put on a small top and size 8 pants. I went from 3x top and 32 pants with a weight loss of 178. If this is a dream don't wake me up!

  4. It has been two weeks since I had the surgery & I can't believe how quickly I healed, am loosing weight, & back at work. I was able to work all day (middle school art teacher), come home and get on the tread mill! I am off the pain medicine now and looking forward to the incisions to be completely healed. I am so relieved and glad to have had this surgery.

  5. I am down a buck and a quarter as of this morning! That number is not round, but then again, neither am I - any more! 125 has a nice feel to it for some reason. Haha, tomorrow is my three month anniversary since surgery.

  7. Hello onederland!!!!! 199.8. Haven't seen onederland since before the birth of my son, who turns 8 in a couple of months

  8. Someone took my protein bar from the break room. I'm not hungry but I really wanted that bar. I feel like crying. Hormones.

      Nobody steals my stuff but I try to keep a stock of choices in the refrigerator at work for the times when whatever I brought isn't working. In your case, if someone jacked your food.

  9. Having serious anxiety about having surgery Wednesday....so mad at my uterus right now.

      I can't help you with your uterus problems but I can say that there is no reason to worry. You have been here long enough to make good decisions and see the pitfalls of others. You've got this!

  10. Part of this forum since 2010, now that I'm making an effort to converse, I realize I'm socially inept. I'm the epitome of "the cat's got your tongue." o.O

  11. Today was my first day on the lathe for some serious wood cutting since before surgery. I discovered an unintended (or unforeseen) consequence. My smock which keeps the wood chips from going down the inside of my shirt is now too big, and cannot be tightened enough to be snug around my neck. And believe it or not, I have a funny story about this, which involves wood chips, Mrs. LittleBill's underwear, and threats made to my safety. Hundreds of people at demos have heard it. ;-)

      Mrs. LittleBill might not want that kind of timber in her forest! Congratulations on the smock being too big! Have fun making the chips fly!

      13 degrees and a foot of snow. Pretty rare here. I was working about 30 miles from here most of the week in a similar elevation and I was in 18-30 inches of goodness.

  16. so sad and frustrated about not having my surgery in Mexico on Feb 3rd. But God is in charge of it all...

      I used Mauricio gutierez at Trinity Medical in Tijuana. Excellent experience. They said that usually they can get someone in as little as 2 weeks. If you want to talk to a coordinator I will pass along their information.

  17. Happy 9th anniversary to me and my husband today!

  18. I found my adult Boy Scout uniforms and I have to say that they fit better now than they did the last time I wore them.

      I was heavily involved in scouting as well, Eagle Scout, OA, multiple positions in OA including Section vice chief (the section was OR, WA and parts of ID), I was the shooting sports director at Camp Makualla for 6 seasons. Scouts was my social outlet because I left regular schools when I was 12. I was home schooled until 15 when I entered our local community college. I graduated from college the same year that I would've graduated high school.

  20. Gonna put this little PSA here for your benefit.....while it can provide near immediate support and restoration of function.....duct tape should not ever...ever, be used as a bandage/wrap for a sore titty. Removing that stuff was like a redneck waxing. Long story....but ouch. Damn.

      He is a wild man but I don't think that he is kitten on catnip crazy. More like adolescent cat with a roll of toilet paper.

      I'm going to wash my uniforms and I will post pictures afterwards. It would be pretty cool if those of us that have our stuff from "back in the day" posted us wearing our old clothes again.

      I also found my original handbook tonight. When I was in Scouts my handbook went everywhere in my backpack. I had beat it up so bad that the covers were long gone so I had drilled right through it and put it in a small binder. It impressed the Eagle Scout board of review so much that a picture of it was displayed in my local council office for years.
