OK. So I cheated a little with my weigh in this morning. When I first stepped on the scale it said I had gained 1.2kg. I refused to believe it and got on again. +600g. Stepped on again, no gain, no loss. Stepped on again, no gain, no loss. I weighed like 5 times consecutively and 3 out of those 5 it said no gain, no loss. I think that wins, OK?
I really wish the side effects of the cortisone injection I got would go away. I’m still suffering from insomnia, wake up with heartburn every morning and am starving ALL THE TIME. I’m hungry right now. I had a slice of toast at around 6AM. It’s 2 hours and 10 minutes later and I feel like I haven’t eaten for an entire day. It’s SO difficult because I’m trying to avoid eating so that I don’t screw up my weight loss, but I’m HUNGRY! The doctor also warned that I might retain water. Yesterday I drank my full water quota (1.5 litres) and I only went to the loo twice. That’s unusual, so it must still be hanging around somewhere in my body. Although…I totally have PMS so weight gain, water retention and hunger all come along with that as well.
Also, my left wrist is really sore. When I had German measles in 2007 all my joints ached so that I could barely walk. Sometimes my ankles still hurt, but since yesterday its been my left wrist. It’s difficult to lift things and stuff. Plus my muscles in my back are starting to ache like they did before and I’m kind of worried that I’m getting sick again. Maybe I’m still getting better. Who knows?
I still need to decide where to get my tattoo. I thought I had decided to put it under the butterfly I already have, but quite a few people have said they don’t think that’s a good idea. My (conservative) grandfather included! My grandfather feels that it is a commemorative tattoo and if the intention is that I am to be reminded of James that I should have it somewhere where I can see it. He suggested the inside of my arm, but I’m not fond of that. I told him that I had considered having it done on my wrist and he thought that a good idea. Sarah also suggested my wrist, as did Leebeesa. Consensus seems to be that it would be a good place to have it. Rudi didn’t like the idea at first, but conceded last night that it would be a good spot. Wenchy recently had a Yin Yang symbol tattooed on her wrist so I asked her how much it hurt…apparently it hurts a lot. *shrug* I suppose it can’t be worse than induced labour.
