The ureter stent finally came out today. Things are still a bit uncomfortable, but it should all be a distant memory in a few days. When I got to the urologists office today, I had a little moment. I was under the impression that this thing was coming out no matter what, so when the assistant told me the doc had to look at my xray and ultrasound first, I started crying! Just the thought of having to deal with that thing one more day was enough to send me into a tizzy. But, all that was unnecessary because it is gone. Finally. I am so looking forward to peeing without pain.

AND. I weighed in this morning at 217.5, so my 60lb mark is definitely within reach by the end of this month. If I get my sorry ass to the gym a couple times next week, and keep the junk under control, all will fall into place I think. It would be really nice to get past this next milestone. I have been looking at some recent pics of me and one thing I noticed is how much narrower I am. I guess I'm always looking at my profile and waiting for my boobs and gut to shrink in, and I never thought about checking things out from other angles. Looks good!

I really really really really really need to go shopping. I need a nice outfit to wear to dinner in Chicago, and a couple decent shirts (other than t-shirts) to wear around. Maybe a casual pair of shoes. My wardrobe is in seriously awful condition. At the same time, I don't want to spend a bunch of money on clothes just yet. Especially since I plan on losing another 25-30 by the end of the year. What is a girl to do?

Glad the stent is out!!! I'm sure you will bounce back to normal in no time.

Whoo-hoo for being so close to 60 lbs down!! :)

I hear you on the clothes for Chicago! I went to Fashion Bug a couple days ago--buy one get one 1/2 off. Still not money I want to be spending, but my wardrobe is pathetic!

Glad you are feeling better. 60 pounds down is awesome.I understand about shopping - I love to shop, but hate to buy stuff knowing (hoping) it won't fit for long.

I'm so glad you are feeling better! I'm in need of some new stuff too, I'm afraid to buy anything but my clothes are starting to look ridiculous. LOL. Maybe while everyone else is working out at the 5k we should find a TJ Maxx!!
