She came in with a gown and said "Pants and bra off please!" Uhhhhhhh oops if I'd known that i wouldn't have worn my sexy black lace thong, but ya win some ya lose some. Also might have thought about shaving my legs...thank goodness the x-ray room is nice and dark! I rolled myself up onto the cold metal table and let the tech position me. "Any chance you are pregnant?" "Hell no." "Good answer!"
She only had to take 2 pics total, one of me laying flat and one of me on my side "hold your arms like you are praying to God" she says. I like her. When I got back into the room my doctor said, "These are beautiful pictures! The tech said it was easy because you are so thin." WHAT?? I hadn't heard those words in a long time. I look WICKED skinny in an x-ray! Even after eating a bowl of cookie dough for lunch and some birthday cake and ice cream last night for my son's birthday!
Why did I eat those things? As I wrote on a friend's note about weight loss trials and tribulations: You should ALWAYS eat that which you crave, even if its something nasty like cookie dough or peanut butter microwave s'mores. That way you don't go eating healthy things like cheese, eggs, yogurt, and toast trying to fill that hole that is growling at you, and then eating a giant bag of M&M's on top of it because that's what you REALLY wanted in the first place! You save a ton of calories by just giving in and getting it over with.
PB&F on double fiber multigrain bread and my vitamins, crying.
And I always save my vitamin downing for those times that I'm eating something horribly bad for me in hopes of at least making it a vitamin-rich pile of sugary fatty goo.
In conclusion my spine is indeed curved pretty bad to the left, which is what is causing this horrible pain. So, I will be doing PT next week and probably for 6 weeks after to try to cope with it. Maybe I can finally get some alone time!
