WW Weigh-In, Week 23

Weight: 137.7 (okay, 137.66, but I'm rounding up today)
Mood: Less annoyed than I was.

So the scale is creeping down again, albeit slowly. I've still got some weird retention issues going on, so I'm just going to throw it to the hormone gods and try to remember them when I have another super-impressive weigh-in.


The Elder had his 7th grade physical today, and I am happy to announce that not only can the boy hear perfectly, but I now have documented proof! Those of you who live or have lived with an adolescent understand my excitement.

Gotcha, kid. Heh.

He wasn't too happy about the turn-your-head-and-cough-fest, but I told him that I was the wrong person to approach to expect that to get him out of anything. I just had a pelvic ultrasound yesterday (with The Probe), as well as my first mammogram. No, I didn't share ALL this information with him, but I did make it clear that sometimes we just have to suck it up for our health, and it's only once a year so although I truly feel his pain (so to speak), he's going to have to deal.

Regarding the mammogram, by the way, it was totally no sweat. Even though I'm still retaining a bit of fluid, it didn't get above mildly uncomfortable. So ladies, if you're of that age, get out there and get those boobies squished! If a pansy like me can take it, anybody can.

Speaking of age, Choreboy turns 50 in a matter of days. I'm still working on getting him to go in for all those fun "I'm 50 and over!" medical tests. No, I'm not holding my breath. The man is cute, and that cuteness is equaled only by his hardheadedness.

Outside of all that, I got nothing. Oh, except a new bathing suit. But I'm not posting that on the web. Y'all will have to wait until we get back from vacation sometime later on this year and see if I allowed a camera near me while I was wearing less than full coverage. And my dears?

I just don't see that happening. But it's freaking adorable, and I have that on very good authority.

Have a great weekend, all :)

Good for you on getting the mammogram and good luck on getting the hubby to get his tests done. I don't post bathing suit pics, even though I wear one!

Just because AARP sent me an invitation to join doesn't mean that I have to be probed in every orifice with flashlights, cameras and god knows what else. And you really look good in that bathing suit ;)

Wow- I'm really proud of you!!! 137.7? I'd be so thrilled!!! Fluid retention or not- I weighed in at 139.4 this morning. Anything below 138.6 really makes me happy and keeps me motivated.

I bet you look fantastic in your suit- post some pics!!!

I was just told this morning I had to get a mammogram. I was told that last year too but I didn't do it. Now I really have to because I skipped last year. I'm proud of you for doing it. I just don't like the idea of standing there naked in a whole room. I never even do that at HOME. I'm glad you said it was a piece of cake!

My tip for getting The Husband for his tests - being with graphic detail about your annual tests and childbirth - every indignity you can recall. If he can here that and not cave remind him of some of the effects of potential conditions he will be screened for such as incontenience and impotence ... I had only just got started on the details of a Pap and mine was running for the phone :) I said if I could go through that every year he could too ....
