I haven’t written in my journal in a while. Been progressing with my Tai Chi still. occassionally I even have hopes that someday I might know what I am doing. 😆 having said that, my instructor did complement me repeatedly this last week on some new applications that he has just taught us. Push hands. He said that I was really catching on quick with the applications so that is cool. the one that he taught us in the second class was the application for the same move that he had taught us in the form in the first Tai Chi class, so it made sense. 😀 Haven’t lifted weights much in the last couple of weeks, but did a really good session today and more than likely will pay for it tomorrow. 😥 Over the last few weeks, I have steadily been losing weight. It was nice not to go through my 2 week stuck period. Unfortunately, when I managed to get all the way down to 94 pounds off, I than suddenly put the 4 pounds back on in just a couple of days. I have been struggling all week to get it back off and finally it has started to creep back down. So as of this morning, I had 93 pounds off. almost back to where I was on Monday’s weigh in. My six month anniversary is coming up next wednesday and I don’t know if I will make my goal of 100 pounds off by then. I will have to lose 7 pounds between now and wednesday. we shall see. 😯 I have been having difficulties over the last week with my eating. Everything doesn’t interest me, and when I do try to eat it doesn’t sit on my stomach well. I have felt rather naseous most of the time. My surgeon told me to go back on my domperidone anti sick meds as well as do an additonal 3 months on my antiacid that is at prescription strenght. Took my domperidone twice today and since I have taken it I have felt pretty ok. Prior to taking it this morning, I felt ok until I ate something. than the naseous feelings started so took the med. just HATE taking pills ❗ 👿 On another note, I have begun to sell off my big clothes. and have now decided to relugate both the black jeans and the regular jeans in size 22 to the sale pile. I can wear them so they fit nicely when they are just fresh out of the dryer and shrunk. But a little while after wearing them and they stretch out a bit and than they bag and sag in the butt and look ridiculous. so I think that maybe they need to find new homes. Have been at charity shops and other stores and while I do have a lot of new things that I will be able to wear when I reach my goal weight, I have not gotten too many things to wear right now. Not really any point since they will be too big in a few weeks again. So I still have a wardrobe full of clothes that I can’t wear, they are just too small this time rather than too big 😉 going to have to wait for more shopping til I am in Michigan, need to save money. Bad side effect of this surgery, is utter poverty from buying too many clothes 8)
