My ab fab daughter, Jen, over at The Delusional is having a giveaway! Yes, she has now reached 100 posts herself and is a copycat! LOL Seriously, though, she is giving away a set of customized jewelry to someone over there. So go check it out! Comment and try to win!
On another note, I have joined Curves. Yay me! I went for my first full workout today and it really made me sweat! I was shocked! Watching the other ladies do the workout, it does not look very hard. But once you are actually doing it..... it's a good workout. I have set myself a goal of losing 15 pounds before we go to FL to visit. That gives me 3 months. Seems like a pretty reasonable amount! HOPEFULLY I will lose more than that. But if it is only 15 I will be satisfied. For now! LOL
And, on a completely different note, The Boy went to the doctors today for a weight check. There is a good reason for this. He has not gained any weight over the past year. He has grown about..... 8 inches. But not put on any weight. Which means you can count his ribs!!! Last time we were in they checked his iron levels and did a blood test to check on his thyroid. All was well. The doctor had us come back in two months to check again. No change. Sooooooo.... long story short, he has been prescribed Periactin to stimulate his appetite. The doctor is also hoping this will have the side effect of helping him to sleep better. Which I am hoping has the side effect of making him less cranky and combative with me.
I am really very nervous about giving him this med. I hate hate hate the idea of him having to take something every day. BUT, after a year of his refusal to eat, well, anything much at all, I am ready for a change. Do any of you have any experience with this medication? Any thoughts on medicating a child for this? I haven't started the meds yet. He is supposed to get them at night and in the morning. I am planning to wait for the first dose for tomorrow AM. That way I have some time to see if he has a weird reaction.
Ok, gotta go now.... I'll catch y'all later!
