At least it's Friday

I don't have much to say today. I didn't temp last night so I don't know and don't care what my BBT was. It's a liberating and uneasy feeling.

I had a dream... or at least I think it was a dream. I dreamt I could feel an embryo implanting in my uterus and little uterine cramps along with it. Yes, I'm sure it was a dream... or gas.

I'm in the 'Losing the IF Weight' group in the Ballroom. I didn't actually put on my weight from treatments, but I blame insulin resistance (and pizza) for most of my blubber so that counts in my mind. We weigh in on Fridays. I am down another 2.6lbs from last week. And last week I was down 1.8lbs. I haven't really been doing much, just walking and watching what I eat. And although I haven't had any 'digestive problems' in weeks, I still think my GB removal may be helping me. Well, I'll take what I can get.

I am scheduled to get my progesterone drawn on Saturday at my clinic. The receptionist apologized that I would have to be there at 8am to do it (I'm guessing so that it can be processed before they leave). I told her at this point I was pretty used to giving my Sat. morning to come into the clinic. Then I joked that at least I didn't have to shave my legs. She laughed.

But for real, I don't like to shave and my husband doesn't seem to care (or at least keeps it to himself if he does). I do like having freshly shaven legs, but I don't like putting forward the effort. Not only do I shave for all my 'bottoms off' appointments, but I also shave for my acupuncturist since I have to roll up my pants for him. I know, a small price to pay, but annoying. I can't wait to have a giant pregnant belly and use it as an excuse to go furry.

I totally hate shaving as well. I put it off as long as possible and it's one of the reasons why I love winter.

I hate shaving, ick. I do it every day unless AF is here. That's my shaving vacation.

I still have to remember to check out that ballroom later. I keep forgetting. That's cool about the weight loss. I've noticed I'm losing too with just eating better since surgery. Pretty cool :)
I'm on the hate shaving thing too, but I'm ocd I guess and it bothers me if I don't. Except with this GB recovery thing, surprisingly I don't care right now. lol

Great job on the weight loss! I've been gaining weight instead of losing.

I hate shaving my legs too.

Hi Amanda!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I've just commented back :).

I laughed as I read this because I just shaved my legs--I just feel 'cleaner' when I'm not prickly lol.
