Just checking in!

Hard to believe how quickly the days pass.  I try so hard to squeeze everything I possibly can out of a day!  Looking forward to an important event is fun, but I try not to focus too much on that and lose TODAY!

I am feeling pretty good.  I do believe that the current treatment is building up in my body and tends to give me a bit more fatigue than I would like.  But, what can you do huh?

I have been trying to do some clothes shopping.  What a challenge.  I have lost a lot of weight due to the meds and I really have very little that fits me properly.  But I don't want to spend too much as I could gain some back when they change my meds.  Plus, all sizes are so different. 

Since my surgery I struggle with waists in pants and dresses.  I could wear almost 2 sizes smaller, but I cannot stand anything binding around the middle.  Which I have to guess where that is cuz I no longer have a real waist.  Not a real belly button either.  Said good bye to that with my ovaries and etc!!!

Then IF I find something that fits, like capris (I love them) they only have one pair....hello, like what about different colors?  I just don't think the stores are putting in the same amount of articles due to the economy.  Oh well, I am finding things bits and pieces.

Today hubby is back to work from his days off and I am going to fluff around the house.  You know...get it back to the way I like it...not just man clean!!

I will talk to you all again soon.  Enjoy the day!!

My weight naturally fluctuates a good size or so all the time. I feel like I have Oprah's closet {7 different sizes as she claims}. But I am so happy to hear that you are doing well, albeit a little tired. Stay well, my friend!

XO,

Hi Ceekay, I'm so glad to hear that you were feeling pretty good today. You are so right, about enjoying "today". I have a similar issue with my waist size as well.

I am 47 years old and have an early onset of severe osteoporosis in the thoracic area of my back. This has caused me to fracture and then re-fracture several vertebrae in my spine. The fractures crushed the discs and now my spine is curving and my rib cage has started to shift downward. I never had much of a waist to begin with but now finding pants is very difficult too. I came across some really comfortable jeans at the Avenue store. They have a thinner elastic waist band that doesn't dig into my sides. They come in denim, khaki and black. If they don't have a store in your area, you might find them online.

My belly button has never been the same since my hysterectomy too. I do miss my cute belly button, I thought I was the only one! :) But looking on the bright side, it sure did heal up a lot faster than the bikini cut I had to have when I had my laperotomy. That one took weeks.

I hope you enjoyed doing your housework today and continue to feel better. Have a lovely evening! Delisa :)

So glad to hear you're feeling good! I used to love clothes shopping when I was younger, but now it seems like work to find something I like, although I have noticed the new styles this year are a little more to my liking.
I hope you have fun, and find "one in every color" in your size :-)
Blessings,
Marcia
