I haven't written in a while. I guess because not much has been going on on the weight loss front. I'm still at what I was about a month ago. Insulin resistance sucks!! But I do have to say I'm not behaving like the best bandster. I've gotta get my butt in gear. I tried to get another 0.25 ccs put in about a month after my unfil but it didn't work. It's like anything over 5cc is too much for me. But at 5cc I can eat more than I would like to be able to. I really wish I could tolerate 5.25cc. It seems like that would be the perfect spot, but at that point, I can't even get apple sauce down. It's so odd.

Anyway, I'm starting cosmetology school next Tuesday. I decided to throw caution to the wind and just follow my dream. I'm going down to part time at the hospital, which scares the crap out of me as far as money goes, but we can do it (I hope!) I'll be going to school Tues-Sat, and working at the hospital Saturday and Sunday nights. Whew! That's gonna suck! lol! But I can do anything for 10 months right??

On top of all that, I've been seeing a reproductive enocrinologist. I had a sonogram of my ovaries and he said they looked great for having PCOS. I then had to have an HSG done where they shoot dye into my uterus to check for blockages and I passed! Wednesday I have another ultrasound, then in a few weeks I have an endometrial biopsy. Doc says this is the "investigation" period so after this cycle I'm sure the next one is where we'll get down to business. I'm thinking he'll put me on a mild fertility drug called Clomid to help induce ovulation. I pray it works for me.

On the home front, our garden is thriving, our chickens are growing, Mike quit smoking, we just celebrated his 46th birthday on Friday... Life is good. Now if only I could eat right and exercise...
