- week


LOL!  What I week I had!  I broke a tooth in half on rice had dental work done and gained and lost 5 pounds in one week.  First things first, on tuesday night I had an old filling decide it was time to leave this world, so it fell out of my molar and took out half the tooth with it.  I was so upset by this, it hurt and it was weird and all I could think of was that I was loosing all my teeth.  ( I am a bit dramatic) I went to the dentist the next day and they started the work on a crown but after getting halfway through they stopped.  Remember how I have told you guys that I burn through anesthesia pretty fast.....same thing here.  He could not give me anymore Novocaine and It was hurting me.  So he decided that I needed to be sedated for the rest of the work.  The next day after 2 hydrocodones, NyQuil and lots of funny gas the job was done and I am the proud owner of a temporary crown until the permanent one is complete.  I had a headache all weekend from the mouth pain so I didn't get online very much. 

Now about the 5 pounds gain and lost thing.  Since I broke my tooth on tuesday and had this huge hole for a couple of days I was unable to take my metformin and my gummy fiber chews.  You know what happened next, with out the metformin my weight loss stops and without the fiber my bowels stop.  I didn't poop all week.  Finally on friday I chewed some fiber up very carefully and by yesterday I lost 5 pounds.  (I don't think I need to tell you how that happened)  I am back at work and back to working out tonight.  I hope all of you had a better week than I did and I look forward to catching up on your blogs.

Week in evaluation:
1. Did not take my medication regularly.  This was not my fault since I had some issues.  I am back on the meds and just in time for my special monthly friend.

2.  I only worked out twice.  Yeah, it is hard to get a workout one with toothaches.  I will be back on that never ending elliptical run tonight.

3.  I did drink more water.  I did this mostly because it soothed the pain a little.  I hope to keep it up.

Praise to the scale gods I was able to lose a few ounces this week from last week.  Lets just hope it keeps up.


  1. you had five pounds of poop! gooooooodness! I bet you felt better after getting that out :) hahah...and a piece of rice? Dang...that must have been a really hard piece of rice.

  2. LOL, no joke. I did feel much better too! The sad thing is that the rice was actually a bit mushy.
