Ugh, Could We Please Do Away With All Of The Drama?

Well, my heart monitor scan came back normal. The irony of the situation is, that the few days after the holter monitor was removed, my heart palpitated like crazy. Figures.

The doctor decided to put me on Zoloft to help with my anxiety issues. He thinks that may be what is causing all of my ailments. WELL, after my third day of taking the Zoloft, I began to feel VERY sick. I developed a migraine and started vomiting, and by the end of the day, my Mom (who was visiting) found me on the bathroom floor. So, needless to say I am DONE taking Zoloft. I must be allergic to it or something.

I go tomorrow for a 4 hour blood test from 7:30am-noon, so I need to find a good book to read!

Unfortunately, with all what is going on, any weight loss hopes and desires have been thrown out the window. I want so desperately for all of this to be over so I can start feeling better and get back on track!

Day Four Failure

Well, the cleanse lasted for a whole (well almost) four days! On the evening of the fourth day, both my husband and I found ourselves downstairs in the kitchen looking for something to eat that didn't come from the ground! He chose Triscuits and cheese while oddly enough I chose a salad- but with CROUTONS! Yum.

So, day now day eight have all been with and without our cleansing rules. We're awful!

I have to say, I don't feel any better, and I lost 0 pounds! My dear hubby lost 5 pounds. No fair.

Switching noodles:

I went to the doctor today to discuss some episodes of light-headedness, nausea, chest pains, headaches and passing out. The doctor was fine, but I hate when they don't know the answers! It's always a big, fat guess. So, after an EEG, I find myself strapped to a 24-heart monitor (holter monitor) that falls off EVERY single time and lean over to pick up one of my children or one of their many toys. OBNOXIOUS. I just pray that it doesn't fall into the toilet. How on earth would I explain that one!? Gross. I also have to go in for a four hour blood sugar test to make sure I am not suffering from low blood sugar. Oh yeah! Guess what!? The scale at the doctor's said I weigh 270! I'll take it! Should I tell them it's wrong?

So, that's me right now. I hope you are all in your happy places!!!

Hmmmm, did someone say something about a HUGE steak? Because, I could seriously use a little protein right about now.

Scrub, Scrub

My husband and I are starting a ten-day cleanse today. Wish me luck.

I don't plan on cheating, really I don't. But, I am afraid that my meals, consisting of a mysterious-black powder, will decide not to stay down.

We have to take 7 special vitamins 3 times a day and at least two fruit smoothies made from the mystery powder, flax oil and water. In between, we are only allowed to eat vegetables and fruit. I feel nauseous already.

I plan on living on applesauce with ground flax seed and cinnamon. Yum. I am glad I have the last book of the Twilight series to finish- it will be a great distraction from my rumbling tummy.

My husband is convinced this is the answer to ALL of my problems. I hope he's right. Wouldn't that be so nice? If after ten days ALL of my problems went away? I'm holding my breathe. Really. Really I am.

Okay, maybe not. It's breakfast time... here I go. I'll let you guys know how it goes!
