I Don't Know How It happened!! :)

 Hey Ya'll,

First off, I would like to say that I am finally able to change my ticker tape!  I had gained about 5 lbs back over the Holidays & today when I weighed in, I had lost all the weight back plus 2 more lbs!!  So I am at my all time low since Surgery!!  About time.  Both my DH & I were surprised as we were not expecting me to have lost after our time in Nevada.  I wasn't exactly trying to watch what I ate.  I even had pancakes for breakfast both mornings!! 

I'm also sorry to post so late in the day (night), but I have been trying to recoup from my Allergy Attack, that decided to hang on in another manifestation.  The drainage has almost completely cleared up.  But then today, my sinuses were plugged up so much that I was dizzy.  In fact, so dizzy that I was getting sick to my stomach!  I had already taken a nap earlier in the day (after my Doctor appointment), but with the light headedness getting worse as the day went on, I decided to take some super duper, extra strength allergy/sinus pills.  I normally take only a half dose of these type of drugs as I take enough meds as it is, but I was desperate.  So I took them & of course, they proceeded to put me to sleep!!  I finally woke up at 8:30 pm!!

Late this morning, I had to drive into Sacramento to my Dermatologist to take out my stitches from the "surgery" on the mole taken off next to my knee in late December.  I was supposed to have them taken out on Monday, but that was the day that we ended up having to drive to the Hospital in Nevada for my FIL.  My Dermatologist office kept calling, desperate to get them taken out.  So today was the earliest I could get in.

Unfortunately, I had tried to eat my leftovers from last nights dinner from PF Chang's Restaurant before leaving.  I had a bit of a problem eating what little that I did eat last night.  But I thought it was the noodles that was causing the problems.  This morning, all I had was the Mongolian Beef.  I had cut the beef up into small bites & I thought that I had chewed it up well enough.  But I soon realized that I was getting stuck!

Now as all you experienced bandsters know, if you wait until you believe you are getting stuck, it is probably too late!  My DH had forgot that I had to change my appointment to this morning & he drove my car to go to the gym.  So I was going to have to drive his truck into Sacramento.  But when he realized that, he called me & agreed to meet me so that we could change vehicles.

By the time that I got to where we met, I was really in the throws of pain!  He realized it & offered to drive me to the appointment.  So I must say that he was definitely my hero today!!  This was only the second time I have been stuck & luckily, I wasn't stuck to the point that I PB'D or slimmed, but I came really, really close!

Well ya'll, I am mentally exhausted & cannot think of anything else to say today, so I will leave you for now.  Till next time.

Aloha My Friends

Hey Debi,
Isn't getting stuck a bitch? I hate it!!

About the nioxon... I keep forgetting to write about it lol. But I had it in the back of my mind. Ok.. so here are my thoughts: the Nioxin has made a difference so far. Immediately after using it (the shampoo and cond... and by immediately I mean by about the 2nd shampoo/cond) I noticed an improvement in the overall state of it.

It wasn't as dry and seemed to have calmed down. The nioxon also helped make it seem a little fuller. But on the down side: no sign of new baby hairs growing back yet. It could still be that it's too early, cos hair takes a long time to grow. Oh, and the hair falling out is def less than before I was using it.. jeez nearly forgot to tell you that. I would def use the Nioxin though and recommend you buy it :)

Also... get straight onto that biotin in some form or another. Tablets - liquid - it doesn't matter.. the research seems to indicate it helps with the over state of the hair - slowing down hair loss etc. Maybe something else to look into. Hope this helped. xxx

Yes, definitely Cara!! Thank you! I was looking to start both the Nioxin & the Biotin, so I am glad that you feel they are both worth the money!!

I haven't had hair loss but I thinki I may try some anyway, before I have the problems :)

Good for you for getting off the holiday excess! And I guess we are all going to have some side effects sooner or later-- sorry to hear you were suffering, but hope that there was some learning curve for you there? Was it not to eat beef in the mornings maybe?
I understand people are classically tighter in the morning.... just some thoughts.

Debi said...

Dee, I would go ahead & use the products as the hair loss can go as long as 6-8 months on some. But on the other hand, if you have thick hair, you may not notice much of a difference.

Vanessa, thank you for the congrats on losing the extra lbs put on over the Holidays. As for the Beef. It seems that I can eat some forms of it with no problems, & others I can't. The type of Beef they used in the Mongolian Beef is more like steak. Very sinewy, making it harder to chew up. I will definitely not eat that for a while!!!

I got my package in the mail today...and the shampoo/condition & scalp therapy were Nioxin, system 3. I am going to start using it tomorrow (I was told to stop washing every day and only wash every other). I am going to the store this weekend to buy biotin..and I have started the zinc. Hopefully all of this will work!

Thanks Susie Q, I will definitely be buying these items as well!!
