veggies yuk's Journal, 09 April 2009


time for a confession...i have been off my hormones for over 3 weeks - and as such i have gained 15 pounds...the weird thing is that my clothes still fit...i did go back into my 12' hopefully this surgery tomorrow will show what is going on so that i can get back to being (along stretch i know, but one can hope)...

without the hormones i have absolutely NO ENERGY...i am falling asleep at the office and by the time i get home - folding 2 loads of laundry just wears me my exercise has taken a hit...i did the walk away the pounds cd again and only made .75 of a mile...a little better than the first time i did it...but still very bad... still eating the veggies with every dinner and most lunches...not getting the 4 cups a day...but doing much better...drank a v8 the other day and it litterly made me

on the home front...still working 3 nights a week on the video stuff...waiting for spring so we can plant the garden...we have it all laid out and ready to go as soon as the ground warms up...

have book club tonight - that about sums up my life for this last couple of weeks...

Do you think your body is carrying 15 pounds of water? Could that be? Strange phenomenon. In time - your body will adjust. It is tough to be a woman.

Also - you may see a big loss after your surgery. I did not look back at your previous journal entries. After my surgery for endometriosis - I dropped ten pounds in about a week and a half. My body was holding onto weight as a self protective measure.

Hope you surgery goes well and it sorts out your problems. Hormone or lack of them are the pits! :)

Good luck with everything! I think it is so awesome that you are sticking to veggies. Trying the V8, well... that drink is not for everyone, but have you had their v8 splash drinks?

I find V-8 improves with the addition of vodka :) Seriously, I hope the surgery goes well and you feel better soon!

I'll be sending you some good thoughts and prayers for your surgery. I understand about the hormones. I got messed up on my hormone therapy last month, and it really threw me for a crazy loop. I'm finally getting to the point that I can start over again, and hopefully get back to "normal". I agree with Densible--add some vodka!!! LOL Don't worry about those 15. You are strong and very determined! After you feel better, those 15 will go running right off!!! **HUGGS**

I actually like densible's vodka and V8 idea. Do we put a celery stick in with that for extra veggies??? LOL Seriously now, I have you in my thoughts and prayers for your surgery tomorrow, actually today, it is 12:30 a.m., you will have more energy and will feel better and those 15 pounds will come off. My daughter had Endometriosis and she did really well after her surgery and still is. ((hugs))

Thinking of you and all good thoughts and prayers for surgery. Also I know how hard it was for you to type that weight in and I'm so proud of you for being brave. You WILL get it off and more to boot when you're feeling better-first things first!!
