    Got just diagnosed with iron deficiency. So it's high dose supplements for a few weeks and another blood work. Plus testing for occult bleeding to make sure it's really a nutritional issue (most likely the cause - after all bariatric surgery is now regularly listed as a possible cause and given the fact that iron absorption occurs in the duodenum and upper jejunum...).

    Just stumbled across this and had to think of BP immediately. I know this is something people simply don't want to think, let alone talk about but it's one of the reasons I'm limiting time on here.

    Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

    Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
    I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
    Anyway, hoping people are ok!

    Um...so all this time I thought I had a lumpy lower abdomen due to stubborn fat deposits or uneven fat loss.  Turns out two of those lumps are my hip bones.

    Worst. Dumping. Ever. Last. Night.
    So I thought I would throw caution to the wind and sample some of the fruit salad that my mom brought over for the fam. I dutifully portioned out 1/8 cup of the stuff.  I figured the sugar in the fruit may be in issue, but come on, 1/8 cup?  Barely a couple bites, should be fine.
    Before I could finish it, my heart started to feel like it was beating out of my chest.
    *** TMI Alert: continue reading at your own risk ***
    Ended up in the washroom barfing. And while I was barfing, I had to .  I was literally alternating ends to face the toilet until it felt like there was nothing left in my insides.  I swear more came out of me that I even put in it over the last 3 days.
    I laid down with my forehead on the cold bathroom floor tile for like 20 minutes afterwards to recuperate.  Then Mr. (my hero ) carried me to the shower and helped me crawl into bed.
    So yeah, I'm feeling pretty shitty this AM.

    Never thought I would say this, but I think I've lost enough weight.
    My goal was originally 120 lbs, and I think I'm going to stop where I am (127.3 lbs).  I'm about to size myself out of the smallest of sizes of women's clothing and I really don't want to sport a wardrobe from Gap Kids (which, btw, I actually wore this morning...my jacket felt so loose on me and its just a little too cold today to go jacket-less, so I put on the Kid's old windbreaker that she wore 2 years ago: Gap Kids size 12. Seriously.  I'm wearing my kid's hand-me-downs.  What is happening??)
    I don't really understand though why when I was in my 20's, when I weighed less than I do right now, was I actually bigger than I am right now.  I still have clothes that I wore in my 20's that I am swimming in these days *scratches head*.
    ...and since I plan to get some PS done in August, I figure whatever skin they chop off of me will get me down closer to 120 without having to lose any more fat and/or muscle and/or overall bulk.
    Soooooo....now I have to figure out how to do the maintenance thing.

    I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

    Took the plunge. Gifted my self a scale for the maintenance phase of my journey. I'm no longer actively losing, so it's time for accountability.

    Almost went to the Gym, decided not to.
    So i wanted to walk 1.5 miles through park and wooded area (begging to star in a slasher film?) to the pharmacy to get a prescription filled & the gym is only .25 miles more away but then it started to rain so I walked (a different route, I can learn...) 1.6 miles home.
    Then it hit me 
    walking in the real world is totally different than on a treadmill. So I'm good with my decision.
