Itchy, Itchy, Itchy

No, we don't have chicken pox! I did, however, have to go to the dermatologist on Wednesday. I have Tinea Versicolor. It's not a fungus (that's what Tinea means, fungus). But, its not. It's a rash that shows up about every 6-12 months on various parts of my body, my neck, back, tummy, chest. So, the derm gives me a REALLY strong medicine for it and it makes me ITCH like crazy! Luckily I only have to take it for 4 days in a row and it's only one pill per day. Today is day 4 and I guess I need to go take my pill. I will be SO glad when it's over! I also went to the eye doctor on Wednesday and in about a week, I will have glasses. I have NEVER worn glasses or contacts before so I'm not sure how I feel about it but I will be glad not to squint anymore. My eyes aren't that bad either. But, I've been having headaches a lot and they are pretty bad so I hope this helps. I've also lost about 15 pounds and Zach says he can tell so that makes me feel good!

+3 makes ...

12. That's how much weight I have lost since I started this diet. I am a little discouraged because after losing 9 last week, 3 seems like nothing. However, the cramping has started so I assume I am about to start which could be part of the issue! Either way, I can't complain about a 12 pound loss and the fact that my skirt wasN'T tight this morning!

OK, I lost 9 pounds last week! Can you believe that? Well, if you knew how much I weighed I'm sure it would be no shock! But, I think I am under everyone on the "real" Biggest Loser now :)

I did it

So, I didn't want to do this but I did anyway. We started a "Biggest Loser" challenge at work. I was SO not in the mood to go back on a diet but I did it. It's been a week and I've lost almost 1o pounds. I have been walking every day and eating NO sugar. I feel SO much better, have SO much more energy and am hoping if I can lose 40 pounds to get back to where I was when I got pregnant with Bailey, it will help me get pregnant again too. Other than that, nothing really exciting is going on. Bailey has had a 24 hour stomach bug. She threw up so hard last night that she was shaking and coudn't stand up. It was pretty scary but this morning I walked to wal-mart and bought her some liquid anti-nausea medicine for kids. She seems to be so much better today. I hope all of you are having a great weekend. I'm looking forward to FALL BREAK in a week and a half!
