Staying home is SO BORING! I have my transcription job, though, which keeps me busy. I'm waiting for the online instructor to call me and tell me how to attend classes online, but so far, no one has called. It's nice not to have to wake up at 5:00 in the morning to go run before school, yet at the same time, it's not so nice to not have a reason to wake up at 5:00 in the morning.
I was reading my doctor's site that I'll be going to on Friday, and it sounds pretty standard that for asthma, he also does allergy testing. For allergy testing, it said you can be on no antidepressants. I assume that would include bipolar medications as well. How is that going to work, exactly? I have no idea if I have any withdrawal symptoms from some of the meds I take! But I'm really freaking out ahead of time.
Last Friday I weighed, and I'm finally down to 149.2. I tried on a bridesmaid dress that I hadn't worn in about six years and it fit! As well as suits I bought for work that I started for a job that year. I still have at least 24 more pounds to lose, but it was quite a breakthrough moment for me. Today was pretty warm in Texas, and I wore a pair of old shorts that I hadn't been able to fit into in YEARS! Let's just say they're high waisted they're so old - Mark laughed when I showed him the waist, but he also said I looked great. I've been much smaller a lot more recent than that, while low waistbands were in style and have a closet full of clothes just waiting for me to get down to 125, but getting into the clothes I now do was a pretty big deal.
Can I survive being at home, working and going to school from home until the beginning of April? I don't know, but I'm going to try. I think LOTS of trips to the nail salon, hair salon, tanning salon, etc., are in my near future to get out of the house. I really don't have a choice at this time, I should be glad I have options.
I love this! It is SO true!
