But I got such a surprise the other day I thought I'd share. I had an appointment with my oncology/hematology doctor and in the course of doing vitals they measured my height. New one on me, but especially surprising because I shrank! Always being between 5'7 1/2/5'8 [depending on who you ask] I was really, really shocked to learn I am now 5'6 1/2. Now, I know everyone shrinks with age, but a whole inch at my age seems to be a bit much. I try to look at the bright side tho' - it explains how all my kids ended up taller than me. :D I'm a shorty. heehee
In other news of things shrinking - my weight. I am now at 107 lbs. Sigh. To gain any weight at all I have to eat an extra 3,000 calories per week in addition to my 1,500 daily calories.
Try eating 2,000 calories on a low sodium, liquid restricted diet. It ain't all ice cream and lollipops. If it was I might put the weight back on. hee
I am happy that my appetite has returned to [almost] normal - but without all the prohibitive food and drink I just don't see me doing it. It took me over a year last time to gain 17 lbs, now I am looking at replacing 28 lbs. Even if I liked the nutritional supplements [Boost, Ensure] I can only consume so many ounces of liquid a day. This even knocks out milkshakes and sodas.
As with everything else, though, this does have a silver lining. I am way ahead of bikini season [yeah, right] and I don't need a new wardrobe. Just a really good belt. :D
Hope y'all are having a gorgeous Saturday. Enjoy and relax.
See ya' on the flipside. :)
