I got a call from my PS today and we got a turn down for my abdominalplasty with muscle tightening. I haven't gotten my letter yet, but am waiting to get that before I go to the next step. Regardless of rather I have PS or not, I've got to get this hernia taken care of. It looks like Sigornie Weaver's little friend in that Alien movie.
I had a kind of rough day yesterday. I've picked up a cold and ached all over and decided in the middle of taking care of 1, 4 and 7 y/o to try and make Splenda Caramel Corn. I was test-tasting it at a pretty good pace and started whining about how I'll probably go nuts and start back with my old habits and balloon up to my old 300 pound plus self. My DH who hasn't said much about how I look except to say I'm too skinny, said, "I hope not. I like the way you are now." I was really dumbfounded because we aren't the kind of people who go on about our looks and stuff like that. I did give him a big hug and a handful of caramel corn. By the way, the caramel corn was good and we can never have it in this house unless it is under lock and key. I used the two-handed shovel method when taste-testing it. We got an hot-air popper and that is my DH snack at night. I'm not suppose to have it because of diverticulosis!!! I spray a little butter flavored cooking spray on it and throw a little bit of Butter Buds and he and the dogs just love it. The thing cost about $16.00 from Walmart. I found a good way to keep it from throwing kernels all over the kitchen. Has anyone tried the powdered peanut butter yet? I'm so tempted. They now have it in chocolate/peanut flavor. It is from Bell Plantations and have rave reviews on it.
There are so many newbies and I hope they are all doing well without complications. I still thank God every morning that I can get out of bed. With the cold weather comes so many aches and pains from arthritis and years of body abuse, but this winter I can move around. Last winter I was practically housebound and absolutely useless. Trying to cope with getting my water in and wonder what the heck I had gotten myself into. Foaming like a shaving creme can and eating too fast and bringing it back up. All these things passed and I'm ALIVE!!!!!
