Just Checking In

Just realized it's been a while since I blogged. There really isn't anything new going on in my world. I did get on the scale this morning and I was sitting at 143.9 so that made me happy.

We still haven't found Athena's marble. We did go for an X-ray yesterday and they didn't see anything, so either she passed it and I missed or she choked it up and I didn't see it.

Let's see, my dad sold his house, so he gets here Thursday to look for a house. Still nothing on ours, wonderful bank is holding up the whole process.

I laughed at the other Amber's blog about a swim suit. I told her I can relate. Athena starts swim lessons Wednesday, and I have to go with her, so I had to get a suit. I looked at Wal-mart, Target, TJ Maxx, Khols and found nothing that gave my flat droopy boobs the support they need. So, my husband was just on me to get one, so we went to the mall. I had a gift card for Dillards so we started there. OMG OMG OMG can you say major expensive! I was like holy shit are you kidding me. Who in their right mind spends over $100 for a swim suit?!?! They had ones that were based on bra size, but the top alone was like $70 then the bottom was like another $50, I mean SERIOUSLY! So, I ended up almost there, I spend $90 on mine. I've NEVER EVER EVER spent that much money on an article of clothing, other than shoes and my wedding dress and maybe a prom dress. My husband was just like who cares it looks good and you're comfortable, so just buy it. So, I really felt like I had no choice, so I got it. It really is cute. It's a tankini with a skirted bottom. If it weren't for my totally gross arms I'd actually really be confident in it. I might post some pics, depending on how I feel once I get it on for real and not in a dressing room.

I also went dress shopping for a dress for my sister's graduation in May. She's graduating from UNLV. I didn't want to spend a lot, but again, now that I'm thin there is much more to choose from. I ended up with this wild pattern wrap dress. I got it at Khols and my grandparents went with on Senior day so I got an additional 15% off, but in the end they insisted on buying it for me. It's cute. Now I need to find some shoes to go with it.

Well, like I said nothing exciting to report. Tomorrow is baseball tryout day for Jacob, so we have to be there at 10 then I have to go grocery shopping at Wal-Mart.

One other thing I've been wanting to post, which will be one of my just being honest and bold posts. Since surgery have any of you had a change in your hair and periods? My hair is curly and frizzy. WTF, I've always had super straight hair. I'm trying that frizz ease, but it just seems to make my hair greasy. It's insane how it curls up in the back. Now period, OMG, could it be any heavier? It is so terrible, no cramping or what not, just super heavy period. Just figured with losing weight it'd make my period lighter, no idea why I thought that, but it seems opposit. Just thought I'd put that out there to see if anyone else is dealing with these two crazy changes.

Yes my hair definitely changed after surgery. With the "protein pull" that typically happens after surgery where your body takes protein from your hair/nails, my hair turned frizzier too and thinner. It's not too bad.

As for the period thing, I'm on the pill and it makes me only have a period once every 3 months which I like and it's very light.

Hey, you look great! And your arms look fine to me. I haven't had the surgery yet, but I'm thinking maybe it could be a result of fluctuating hormines? That's exactly what my hair has done, having children back to back. It gets worse every time! I'm told it will go back to normal after I stop having kids. Of course, by then I'll have so many of those wiry, frizzy grey hairs that it will STILL look bad, lol. The period thing could be hormones too. Just a thought...obviously my uneducated opinion! ;-)

Anyway, looking fabulous!
