When Brian was up a wind turbine tower this morning, he encountered some bees. There were around 6, but thankfully he was only stung by 2. Brian's allergic to bees, and he started swelling up, so the co. made him climb down and go to the emergency room. They gave him some steroids and Bennadryl. It seems to be working, as the swelling has come way down. His headache has even gone away. The Dr. told him he has to take tomorrow off, too,, though. Thank God Brian is alright, but now I get to be around "sick" Brian. Well, "sick" when he's feeling better. It's no fun... He doesn't handle it well. It's obvious where Ryno gets it.
The weigh in went fairly well this morning. I always have a battle with the scale... It's rarely good enough. However, I can live with the #, as I know I haven't been eating too well. Drum roll, please....I lost nearly 5 lbs (2 oz away). I realize the first week is mostly about water weight, but I'll take it. I do feel better. I really do. This is going to be a long process. So long in fact, that I can't really think about it without wanting to throw in the towel. I'm semi-patient with my kids, but that's about it.
I did take some "before" pics, and I know my starting weight...but I'm not ready to disclose any of it. I'm terrified of how I look and the weight, so I'm not thinking advertising it at this point would be very healthy to me. Hopefully once I start feeling better about myself
Once again eating wasn't so smart today...
