So I have finally realized that my 'baby weight' isn't going anywhere without help. I joined the ymca and have started this ActiveTrax thing, where they walk you though machines and get your goals and then set up workouts for you (with the right weight and seat position). You keep track of your workouts and then they change them when you need. I have never really used any of the machines because I had no idea where to start, but I've gone twice this week (the y is two blocks from work, so we go during lunch). I don't really know what my goal weight is, but at 182lbs (my current weight), my pre-Henry clothes don't fit and even then I could have stood to lose a couple of pounds. Plus almost everything but my belly looks normal, so I know people look at me and think chubby or preggers. I need to figure out a goal weight, but I don't really know what to pick. I've never been super weight conscious, because I didn't really gain or lose weight, I just always was. My mom used to tell me that that would catch up with me. I'm not going to do like a weekly check-in here or anything, but if any of you are feeling froggy, you could guilt trip me every once in a while!

So for our insurance this next year we had to do a physical. Which is cool, I just had to remember to do it. I had mine Tuesday. I don't remember the last time I had a physical. I go to the doctor every 3-6 months for my anti-anxiety/anti-depression meds. Anyway they had to take my blood pressure twice because I never have high blood pressure and I was so nervous trying to fill out the questionnaire that it made my lower number a little high. Anyway I was going through and came across the 'how long ago was your last tetanus shot' question. Maybe high school? So I had to get a tetanus/whooping cough shot, which has made my arm ache and me just feel crappy.
And they did blood work and I had to pee in a cup, which always takes me by surprise for some reason. I put on the gown and we did a breast exam, she said everything was fine just a little scar tissue, which for the breast reduction was amazingly unnoticeable. Yay, Dr. Taylor! When they first did the breast reduction, Patrick and I used to call them franken-boobies. You actually have to look really close to see the scars now.
Anyway, the nurse called today and I am Vitamin D deficient. Like it's supposed to be between 30 and 100 and mine's 10. My friend at work said jokingly, well maybe if you actually went outside. I'm so white, I burn through hotel rooms, so people mock. So I have to go tonight and get Vitamin D pills.
What I really need to do is get on a routine of exercising. Before Henry I weighed 160 and could have lost a bit without missing it. Now I weigh 184 and I need to work on that. Also my average sugar was right at the limit of normal. So basically I need to be healthier. Which I am terrible at.

The insurance approved my surgery. I have it Sept. 13. I am so excited and scared. I haven't been in the hospital since that time I was dehydrated when I was one. I haven't bought a bra in a store in so long I almost don't remember what that's like. Yay happy times!

I know I don't post very often, but I had a few things to say. I go back to the plastic surgeon tomorrow to see about breast reduction (aka boobectomy) and since I have lost about 20lbs (and they are as big as ever) the insurance company might pay for it now! I went to Geekfest 2007 (otherwise known as AdventureCon) with Patrick, Ed, Rachelle and Christopher Robin and it rocked. I can't even tell you. On to other fun stuff:

1. Tell you why I "friended" you.
2. Associate you with something - a song, a color, a photo, etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Associate you with a character.
6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7. Tell you my favorite user picture of yours.
8. In return, you must post this in your LJ.
