Following up that 4 hours of sleep night I worked around the house a bit, walked 5.5 miles yesterday outside and didn't take a nap. I went to bed at 11 pm and I have been awake since 3 am and probably stirring before then. So, for two nights of sleep, I've gotten 8 hours total. Not good. And why didn't I sleep this night? Very, very frustrating. I can't even blame it on a full moon. That was 3 nights ago and I slept fine then!
Maybe it's my thyroid. I haven't had it checked yet like I should, but I really doubt that it's gone to the other side of hyperactive as I'm on a pretty low dose considering where I started with those numbers, but I can't rule that out. I really need to get that blood work done. Ack and YUCK! I need to find where I put that paperwork. I put it somewhere 'safe' in January, so I would remember it in March...sure...
Well, since I can't sleep, I decided to find a before photo, whole body if I could. Problem is, I hate the camera and the camera hates me, so even if I can find something, it's usually not a good picture. And while I am showing myself at my worst, that doesn't mean I want to air some super hideous picture of me either!
OK, I found 3 from October and one from Christmas. For the October ones this is when I was in the middle of the daily headaches. I felt HORRID. It's also about 2 weeks before I got 24" of braid cut off. My weight there was between 255-258. When I see them now, I can really see what losing 24 pounds looks like. Pictures are good motivators. Here they are (you can click on them to get the full size picture):
Again, my husband being cheeky while I blew up my 5 year old's boxing balloon.
