Hi, Dawn.
Yes, PCOS has been mentioned to me. In fact, that is what we put on the forms so that the health insurance will pay for me to see my endocrinologist. But, I don't have cysts... and you don't have to have cysts to be diagnosed with PCOS. As near as we can figure, the biggest difference between whatever it is I have is that I don't have cysts, I don't have acne, and no matter what they do, I don't have ANY menstrual cycle and haven't had one at all since I was about 19. Before that, it was very rare for me to have one, and the ones I did have couldn't be planned for: I never knew how long, or when one would show up. The only time I have a cycle is if my doctor gives me progesterone to take, and even then it took 2 cycles of a moderate to high dosage ... and then my body STILL waited a week before it happened! And I haven't had another one since that time. I have a pelvic ultrasound every year, and have also had CT scans and MRIs. My endocrinologist is also a specialty gynecologist (she makes her actual money off being a fertility specialist), so she handles most of what happens with me. She is the one that finally diagnosed me after a year of running around to different doctors. I refuse to give her up; she and my gastroenterologist are the only two doctors that have ever believed that I'm not overweight because I stuff my face. My gastroenterologist mostly believed when she read the bloodwork, but then she really believed because she saw me at the gym. She works for the hospital that runs the gym I work for, and one of her offices is right next to it, so she saw me there a whole lot.
All my weight gain was in one area, and it looks really, incredibly odd. And although I've lost a lot of weight in other parts, I haven't lost much of anything there which makes clothing tough. I was also insulin resistant when I started seeing her (normal insulin levels are 7 and under, high normal is 17, I was 55). She referred me to another endocrinologist who put me on glucophage, but then took me off of it and dismissed me back to her care when it made me super sick. A few months after I was off of it, they discovered elevated liver enzymes, too. Right around the time my insulin started to come back to normal, I started throwing up everything I ate... so, now I get to follow a permanent low-carb/healthy carb diet. I'm not supposed to have more than 100 carbs per day, and those are supposed to be mostly from things in milk, vegetables or fruit. Its kinda like Atkins, but not really, because I'm allowed to have berries and soft cheese (cottage cheese, ricotta cheese) and milk products. I'm not supposed to have rice, pasta, bread, potatoes... not even the low-carb kind or whole grain. My body lets me know if I've indulged too much... because I get really sick. I don't know anybody else who has PCOS with insulin resistance who has had a reaction like that. I typically save any "free" carbs I have for something sweet or some microwave popcorn.

ANother short hello......

Robyn- congrats on the 1.4# loss! I too am going to get the "spring pass" as a matter of fact my Dm is going to give me the $$$ for it for my birthday. No excuses for me either.......Hope you got the 2 princes motivated.....congrats on finishing the shopping.

Dawn- I sincerely hope that you can find a medical answer to your symptoms. (been listening to Mouse's saga since I "met her" and realize what a **** she faces with the medical community). Usually it is so much easier just knowing what the real diagnosis is and then you can take some action.
Great for you that Mouse is here for you (well, we all are but she has been thru some of the same stuff as you)- it always helps to find a person who really knows what it is like to walk in your shoes. Glad you like your biggest loser DVD.

Mouse- by any chance is your big moment of fame online? (does the paper have the article on a web page?). I would love to read it......gee, I feel famous thinking that I know you. I do hope that you get to go to that conference in April. When will you know?

Me? Today is Dd's 10 bday.......might take her to see Narnia later...checking out the review online. Got my WW tape in (4 point workout, woo hoo!). But have spent a ton of time in the kitchen- bday cake, cupcakes......on and on plus meals. Nothing horrific, just have to behave myself at dinner.
gotta go fold wash.......see ya!

Fold wash?? You mean you're supposed to fold it toooooo? Mannnnn! Oh, found a couch in the living room last night! Had forgotten that it was there! We unearthed it and I actually sat on it! WOW! Cool! Merry Christmas... as if the clean living room wasn't enough! I hear that we're going to get time off from school too?! AND Santa is going to come! WOW! What a WONDERFUL time this is going to be! How long it will last??? Not long as we've got to put up our tree...Oh, our tree.... you'll love THIS!...

We just returned from going out in our huge (THAT is sarcasm!) back yard (We do have an acre...but..ahem...THAT is FARRR from huge!), we went back to the property line where our trees are thick (altho they never ever regained their beauty that was lost when Isobel blew the **** out of them!). We picked the "best" of the little cedars and chopped it down....2Princes aren't exactly thrilled with it....BUT, when it was explained that THAT tree just gave them a turkey dinner! (Yes, I KNOW that I *JUST* said we never eat a "traditional" Christmas dinner....BUT, my dh asked me this morning if we COULD.... and I said NO....and he said that HE would cook! (and he will!) AND he said that he had been checking out the cedars in the back....and thought there was one that would work...and it would save a bit of cash to use on the dinner expenses! SOOOO.... for the last 39 years all that I said about Christmas dinner was true! This year...DH is going to create a traditional turkey dinner for us using the $ earmarked for a tree.... )

Dawn, the2Princes are giving me the BiggestLoserExercise DVD's for Christmas! I was very excited about it....until the doctor has told me to not jog anymore (ahem!) due to the bursitis. Even IF I can't do them for a while...I AM going to at LEAST try to Walk with Leslie again.... I've GOT to do something.... However, the darn hip and fanny HURT....sigh...I don't know... but trust me! I *HAVE* given up jogging FOREVER, I'm pretty sure! Sounds like you and Mousie have a lot to chat about! Sad to say! I know the horrible time that Mouse has had with the doctors! Hopefully you both will be able to learn and support each other (not that we won't support...but someone who is going thru the same thing is soooo much more helpful, IMHO!) and find some answers! My sister also has PCOS among other things... I know how it has changed her, yadda yadda, yadda! Good luck with it! I know how you feel about dividing your class....like a momma hen! How / who decided who you would keep and who would leave? Are you going to be allowed to team at all ....so those who did or didn't want to leave you KNOW that it is nothing about THEM that caused them to be "given away"? Just wondering! I know how protective of my kidlets I get! You will enjoy the smaller class! You're going to be amazed at how tiny the group looks...after the huge class! We finish Wednesday 1/2 day! I can TASTE it!

Mouse, I *SWEAR* that there is more than meets the eye with my "shy" kiddo! He does get language and speech services.... put I'm pretty sure that it isn't enough. I'm very concerned about processing...something just doesn't seem right. He will participate (to a degree...talking...but NOT "right"....hard to describe) in small group (reading). He has a horrible HORRIBLE time with our math. 1:1 extra instruction, every "trick" in the book, AND still needing more time and practice than the others! He also will talk to me.... in a little squeaky Michael Jacksonish voice about most anything. I heard someone yelling on Wednesday during centers. Didn't recgonize the voice and LOW and behold...it was HIM...and it was a deep NON Michael Jacksonish voice! Family dynamics are an issue. He is the baby. He is only boy. He is totally treated like a baby..... sigh.... He is very sweet...adorable dimples! Fast flashing smile and LONGGGGG delightful eyelashes.... Simply adorable...and well, he truly isn't any problem in class.....only whispering or not talking at all! Sighhh....that isn't my goal!

Gin, Happy Birthday to your baby, Momma! 10?! That is how old our youngestPrince is! Of course he has never acted his age due to his older brother..... Did you go see Narnia??? I am going to take the boys to see it, perhaps...using some of my Christmas money! maybe.... depends on the living room's condition!

Tomorrow we make ornaments and do the last of our Christmas (and other holidays). Tuesday we spend the day with the Gingerbread man! (NOT anything ChristmasIE!) We will make and bake cookies.... we will write about GBMen, measure GBM, yadda yadda yadda GBM! Wednesday is 1/2 day, class party and video...and HOME! Now I just have to make all that sound like objectives! After THIS many years.... I can make most ANYthing connected to objectives! Ya'll know how it goes!

((((hugs))))
Take care,
meeeee

G'evening all.
Robyn: I think I remember reading a research study at some point about children with speech issues who were treated younger than their age. I wish I could remember more details for you! And I hear you... we're done on Wednesday also, and the next two days we aren't even in the building.
Glad you found your couch! I picked up the loose books that are crawling off my bookcase and screaming my name. Two followed me home from Border's yesterday, but another 3 books were calling my name! I really like science fiction and fantasy, which you guys knew, but I also like history. They had a book there about Mao Zedong, and a historical fiction about Vlad The Impaler (the real man behind the Dracula story), and a biography about Milton Hershey. Had I been living in Lancaster, I would've gotten the Hershey book from the library because they will definitely buy several copies... but I don't know if it'll sell well locally. I bought that one, and one fiction book.
The others went on my Amazon wish list.
Ginny: I think you know my real name, right? I don't have the article link anymore, but it was in the Washington Post and it was about apartment shopping. The Post has most of their articles on-line, but I don't know if it is still there or not. Happy B-Day to your daughter! Did you see Narnia? We're going tomorrow morning to the 10:15 matinee.

A t-shirt wearing child of mine has been coming to school the last 2 weeks hacking up a lung... his mom smokes, so he coughs more than average, but this has been pretty bad. He's also stuffy, etc. So, guess what? YEP! I got it, but I've been drinking like mad, and so I'm fighting it off successfully. I haven't gotten as sick as I used to get when I was younger or even after I moved out of my mom's house. I think that is because the meds I'm on help my endocrine system work better. I mean, I did have that nasty virus last spring, and was out of school for a week... but I think that was due in part to the stress from the administration where I was working. I got sick right around the time they ramped up their nastiness, and during the CEC convention... The convention contributed because I know I didn't drink enough, and I went to lots of the events, so I didn't sleep much either.
I did come home a little early today (45 minutes), but I also used that time to run to the dollar store again. We finished the gift-mugs for the bus drivers, and the gift basket with lunch stuff in it for the severe disabilities teacher. She loved her gift... It had tuna packets, chicken noodle soup, applesauce, chicken-salad kits, one of the new ramen noodle entrees, some candy, and rice-krispie treats. I also bought her a $5 gift certificate to Chik-Fil-A, which has to be her favorite restaurant. She eats there all the time. The bus driver gifts have Hershey Kisses (caramel ones), hot chocolate packets and some holiday pencils. But I had to go back because I didn't realize that this school gives administrator gifts... But they were out of mugs! So, they had large plastic tumblers. So, instead of coffee or tea, which was the original plan, I bought all this coffee-flavored Hershey candy: coffee flavored kit-kats, hershey bars, etc. I bought some other candy, and large tootsie-rolls to put in. Then a basket with candy and some cookies for the secretaries in the front office... I don't have a lot of dealings with guidance... but the front office secretaries are a big help.
I managed to get gifts for the 9 people for $25. I love dollar stores: total, I spent less than $40 for everything including the gift certificate to ChikFlaA.
I think I am going to take a nap now, though... later.

Another busy day here......does this ever get any easier????? Took the pm off to go shopping with Dh, well was semi successful- or so I think. And it is all drawing to a close.......but I am jealous of those who have off from Wednesday on. We are working all week- the only bright light about this is that Friday is a half day. Somehow I am sneaking to WW this week- not sure if Wednesday or Thursday will work. My usual meeting will not be available (it is held at a church and they need the room for the preschool Christmas show).

Robyn- well aside from your usual wit and humor about folding laundry (so THAT is my problem.....I am a lousy perfectionist and fold the dumb stuff.....makes sense to me! ) I did truly love your Christmas tree story and that Dh is going to cook the meal..... What a sweetie..... I hope that you can get some excercise in too.....it does help the weight loss journey a lot. I did not realize that you were that uncomfortable.

Mouse- well I am searching the post online....so far nothing......would Love to read that our Mouse is famous! (hey, there was a neat column about charging rent for cats~ thought that maybe one of my favorite felines, Imp, was in there!) Anyway, I will keep looking.......let you know how I fare. WELL, after I spelled your name correctly (duh) I found the article......had no idea that that was your saga and that you searched online for the apartment.
Too bad they did not mention Imp too -just kidding- anyway a nice article and interesting story!

Ladies, I am pooped......woke up at 4 am and had trouble sleeping after that so I worked out. Gotta get some sleep......nite!

Yo! I spent the day hunched over guiding little hands to pat, cut, and decorate gingerbread men! Then I baked them, remembering who made who! I'm a tad, just a tad FLIPPING EXHAUSTED! The kids LOVED the Gingerbread day.... and well, ........Seeing Bruce's face light up as he announced, "I ain't never made cookies before!" and "Isn't he the best one ever?" (in Re: his cookie) made it all, even the hunched back worth it! I made cookies with 28 kidlets... My teaching friend did all the really hard stuff with them...maintaining order! YIKES! I'll get the hunched back anyday!

Off to the hot shower...to see if I can fix this shoulder issue.....Sorry not to be more personal! Hang in there folks! (((hugs))) take care, meee

Just a fly-by hi, here...
Somebody please beat me over the head with a hard object if I ever again say that "doing soandsuch will be easy day with the kids!". That is apparently the key phrase to cause something to go wrong!
My ED Kiddo has the flu (or so his mom thinks, because he was fine on Monday, woke up in the middle of the night sick with fever, heaves, headache, the works. He was VERY well behaved on Monday, though, so he might've been getting sick then!), so he missed the movie. He's probably going to miss shopping tomorrow, too. And you remember my kid with the touchy-feely issues? And how his mom blames my ED kid for the problem, even though that kiddo wasn't involved AT ALL...and my principal pulled the video tape from our bus so that we could prove it? Okay... his mom comes in today at 8:50 this morning and says that he can't go on the trip with us to the movies, and he cannot go shopping tomorrow either. She couldn't have said this to my TA on Monday? Called me? Said something 2 weeks ago when the whole thing happened? She says she doesn't want the two of them together, so he can't go on trips if the other kid goes. I'm not punishing my ED kid for something he didn't do!!! So, my kid got a folder full of work, lovingly copied by your favorite Mouse... after I frantically flipped through all my binders of stuff to get the work together... and he spent his day with the LD classes. And he will do that tomorrow also. He absolutely is NOT getting any treats or special treatment for this behavior! But, let me tell you, I was so livid this morning wit his mother pulling that stunt! I wound up having to drive to the movies because I had to get him settled. But Narnia was AWESOME!
Today was a horrible day for eating: We had a staff meeting, and the administrators gave us breakfast. Somehow, they had fresh cherries on the fruit platter! I love cherries, so I ate them... had some grapes too. I did NOT, however, have a doughnut or pastries. I had one rugalach cookie, and my protein shake (I was kinda sick this morning still). Burger King messed up my lunch order... I wound up with a double whopper instead of a whopper junior (my usual order!). I ate it, though... bad Mouse. And the small fry, too. Ate the bun too (though my body let me know that this was a bad idea later in the afternoon!). We had our staff party tonight, at a chinese restaurant. That was an awesome choice, because I was able to eat! They had veggie spring rolls and veggie lo-mein available, so I had that... then my apartment complex had THEIR party tonight, but I didn't eat anything.
I am so incredibly stuffed... and really, I still didn't have more than 2300 calories! That is just like 1100 calories more than I typically eat in a day, though. And I probably didn't really have that much because I know I overestimated on some of the food that I had.
And now, this Mouse is going to bed. We're going SHOPPING AT THE MALL tomorrow!!!

Evening Everyone,
I am alive and well. Just have been very busy these past few weeks trying to make order out of my life with school, home and other responsiblities. But I am back for good now. I think I have it all figured out how to balance things again in my favor.
Still no takers on our house yet. My dh did meet a guy the other night who said that we could trade houses. Since he wants to sell his for a bigger house. Don't know if he was joking or serious.
Know how I was starting a home business. Well after only doing it for 3 months decided to give it up and try Avon. I made more in one campigan (SP) than I did the three months I did the other business. Avon gives you president's points to use for incentive gifts for yourself. So I think I am going to work towards getting a treadmill. I am much happier with my life doing Avon and not the other stuff. So you will be hearing from me more.
I went to TOPS tonight and gained 1/2 pound. So that gives me moviatation and incentive not to overeat this weekend when we go to my parents for the weekend.
Nothing really else new with me.
Sending out a warm welcome to Fran and Dawn. Glad you joined us. We are a wonderful support group. Which I sure did miss you guys this last month or so.
Well I better sign off for now. I have some laundry in the dryer to fold. Need to do it before I forget about it again. Talk to you all tomorrow. Have a wonderful evening.
Take care,
Kerry

I know a woman who has quite a successful Avon business out here! She is something else! She does it full time! Loves it! ...and is always asking me to try it! I told my unemployeed dh that he was going to take her up on the offer come January! Gonna run.......I'm about asleep at the keyboard! So glad to see you back!

Its just me. Talking to myself. As if ya'll didn't KNOW I was nuts enough!
4 hours. THAT is all I've gotta get thru.... 4 hours!
Yesterday, I had a very difficult IEP meeting that went 1/2 way well. But, while I was in that meeting, they tell me that one of my Grandmothers came in all ticked off and ready for bear. I know what she is ticked about... My teaching partner and I had the *NERVE* to discipline her grandson, THE King! Sigh...I REALLY REALLY don't feel like messing with her. This is the same one who HATED my letter from Santa and yelled at me for the better part of 20 minutes. The kid is um....a BRAT...and I don't allow KingBrat to do what he wants. Go figure!

I took all my gifts to school yesterday! Tis a good thing that I'm a pack rat! I have such limited cash, I was afraid about the holidays and the gifts that I would need for school. HOWEVER, I went into the attic....dug around in my boxes and came up with something 1/2 way decent for EVERYone that I needed and spent nothing NEW (I mean, I had already spent the $$ sometime along the way.... but I didn't have to go to the store with my $2 and buy anything else!)

Some man, locally, has set up a home made snow machine.... His wife wanted a white Christmas. I told David. He said he would drive me over to see this guy's yard. LOL (Gee, somehow I didn't REALLY expect my own snow machine.... I love his solution! LOL)

Ok....gotta go pull the 2Princes up out of bed! whoooHOOO! Won't have to do that tomorrow! Did I tell you that my best friend is going to be in Richmond for Christmas? I'm leaving before dawn tomorrow...and will be spending the day and evening with her! (And the daughter and that cute baby of hers! Oh and their men!)

take care,
Hope you survive the day!

Morning All,
Just a quick note to say hi! I am off to go workout at Curves and deliever my Avon today. Plus I have to stop at the dentist office to pay on my $1000. 00 debt. He is only going to get $30.00 from me this month. But the way I look at it is a start. I think I might just set aside $10 from every campigan I do with Avon for awhile and build up a little vacation fund for me and my dh. Depends on how much I have saved and what kind of mood the kids are in if I will include them in on our little trip. Don't know where I want to go yet. But just knowing that someday we could go on a real vacation is a nice dream right now.
Robyn sorry to hear that you don't let KINGBRAT get his own way and mean grandma has to come in all fired up. I had a parent like that last year with her twin sons in my room. I was never so happy in my life to see that bus pull out on the last day of school last year. Hope you make it through today okay without any problems.
So how is everyone else doing today? I woke up renewed and ready to conquer my 1/2 pound gain last night from TOPS. I am not going to let anymore fat find it's way on my body this week. So keep your fingers crossed that next Tuesday night's weigh-in goes well. Because that night my dh and I are going out for dinner and maybe a movie for our anniversary. We will have been together 2 years come next Tuesday.
Well I better go get my workout clothes on and get ready to head to Curves. Talk to you all later.
Have a wonderful day!
Kerry

Afternoon All,
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day today. I went and ran my errands this morning, worked at Curves. Then this afternoon, I did a 2 mile walking video and rode my excerise bike for 30 minutes. I think I figured out what made me show a gain on the scales last night at TOPS. My mil made white beans on Monday evening and I ate a bowl of them. So I had a little gas problem yesterday. I think that could have been my problem. Since I weighed myself at home this morning and I was down 2 pounds. So I just have to remember not to eat beans the day before or the day of my weigh-in. LOL.
I have been on vacation since I left school at 2:45 on Friday the 16th. Who else has been on vacation this week? Who still has to go to school this week? I have enjoyed the time off to regroup and get my mind in the right mindset.
Well I best go jump in the shower before the kids get here from school. Talk to you all later.
Have a great evening!
Kerry

Evening, all.
Welcome back Kerry!
We're done. Its over till January 3rd. My ED kiddo was there today, but my chronic absentee wasn't. I was surprised, actually because I thought she'd been looking forward to the trip. My Spanish speaking student came in late, and we left his backpack in the main office; when we came back, he was all upset and pointing, crying... I didn't understand what he was asking me at all. I thought we wanted to go to the nurse. He thought he left his backpack at the mall. We had to call his Mom and find a translator to get the whole story. I felt like a rotten teacher!!
My student that had to stay back is really upset with me too, but its because he didn't do most of the work that I copied for him yesterday or today. So, instead of letting him sit with the group and wrap gifts or have pie with us, he had to sit at a table and do work. So, on his way out, my TA asked him what he wanted for Christmas, and he replied, "A transfer to another school! My mom is going to get my IEP and get me moved over break." What fun! If the school calls, I'm not home!
I walked the entire length of the mall 4 times. Its a HUGE mall. Then I had PT. It was not fun.
I received and gave gifts to a lot of people, but none of them seemed to realize that I read... I would have been totally thrilled with just a gift card to a bookstore. Instead, I received candles, foot massage stuff, calendars, etc. I also received a stuffed Eeyore... but its one for a baby. I feel rotten, because I don't know what I'm going to do with any of this stuff.
Oh well!!! I'm going to read and go to sleep.

I wish I was done with school already. I am so ready for break. Tomorrow should be a pretty easy day though. I have both my specials first thing in the morning so I'm taking my kiddos to Art and then PE. After that we are watching The Polar Express until we get out at 11:45.

The only plus about tomorrow is that the new teacher, my friend, is coming in and we are planning lessons for after Christmas and getting her room ready. I'm really looking forward to having my kids split. I am going to have so much space in my room it will look funny.

Well I'm down to 178. Only two more pounds until my Christmas goal. I only have a few days left. I'm going to make sure I stick to my plan and keep going. I have been working out every day and I feel great.

Well I'm going to try to read some and then jump in the shower before I fall in bed. Hope everyone has a great night.
