YOU DON'T LOOK SO GOOD

Are you feeling ok?....That's what I heard today from Babs as we were doing out little jaunt to town...Nope, I actually don't feel so good, I think my blood sugar is down..So we went to Wolf's where Inky was working and he mentioned that I didn't look good either..Everyone is a fucking critic..ok...so I didn't have any makeup on...jeez...so I had a coke(NO DR.PEPPER) and still didn't feel to good..so when we were at the Hardware store I had a honey stick and I felt a lot better, but obviously I still looked like shit, because Babs threatened to kick my ass if I didn't call the Dr...and when I got home Margaret was there for her regular Monday meeting and she said I looked pale and sweaty and maybe I should go see the Dr. ....sigh*...So I called and told them that I had cut one of my meds in half and one of them in 3/4's...was supposed to take it 2 times a day and was taking it once a day...and they said come on down..so I went..and guess what?...I am doing sooooo well...that I can quit taking one of the 2 medicines that I take...I have already been able to stop taking my blood pressure medicine and now I can cut my diabetic meds in half...I fucking rock!...Plus I got the results back from my life screening tests and I aced them too...And...I lost another 5 lbs...
When I was talking to Mrs. Dr. I told her pretty soon I would be so good that I wouldn't need them any more..and if I kept losing weight I would be all tits and elbows...She looked at me for a second, laughed ..and said...."go home, just gooooo home"....ha..
See, cutting out the Blue Bell Ice Cream, Dr. Pepper and pasta is paying off..I have to admit..eating healthy sucks some time..but look what the pay off is.....If I reach my goal of the loss of another blahblah pounds by the end of this summer..maybe I can quit taking the medicine all together..
So I have been patting myself on the head all morning..Now if I could figure out a way to cut my age in half...I would really be happy...yeah....32 would be cool..To top it off?...My house is all clean...the windows are clean, the furniture is clean, the floors, sinks, tables etc..everything is fucking sparkly.....You know what all this means don't' you?....I have nothing to do and I'm bored.. you know I always get into some sort of trouble if I'm bored..I get bored, I start to hum and whistle..and bam first thing you know...I'm in trouble..this could be fun..I haven't been in trouble in a long time..and now I have a partner in crime..yes...the next post should be from the me and Babs from the West court house..Which will be ok as the Judge is an old friend of mine who also owns the liquor store..So if worse comes to worse, we'll have access to booze if we want to fall off the wagon while we do our time...ahh, life is good...

fuckme till they throw away the key

Whew! I was really worried until I read the great report- big kudos!
Try to stay out of trouble...or at least out of the hoosegow.

Valerie Bertinelli's Fat Rolls said...

So let me get this straight...in Texas, when people tell you over and over that you look like shit, enough so that you actually go to the doctor over it. Then it actually means that you are healthier than ever and can stop taking half of your meds! I think I'm liking this Texas kind of thinking! I've always heard it's like another world down there.

Kevin said...

Actually I had read or heard somewhere that it's a bit like Provence in France.

billy pilgrim said...

man, you got a lot going for you.

and that's real nice.

yellowdog granny said...

allan:I'm so proud of myself for the weight loss and the great change in my health...but I figure babs and I will find a way to get in trouble..
BVfatrolls:it's like provance france..yeah, who knew you could look like shit and be in good health..man if I ever put makeup on and gussy up...I'll really be in good health..
billypilgrim:thank you my friend...I am feeling mighty lucky..

Kalibitch said...

Yay for you JackieSue!!!
Like Allan I was worried at the beginning of the post, then letting out a big sigh of relief byt the end.

jan said...

Great news. But watch out if everyone starts telling you that you look really great.

All I have to do to look really crappy is to wear something black. It does something to my color and everyone notices. It's a surefire way to get out of doing something I don't want to do.

RoxRocks said...

Tits and elbows...hahahah!

texlahoma said...

I was worried too, glad it turned out so well. Glad you've got friends in high places, I've just got high friends in places.

Elizabeth said...

Glad things are looking up. yeah, eating healthy food does suck, and so does exercising.... But I guess the alternative sucks worse, right?

more cowbell said...

Wow, a big hell yeah to you! Damn, I do eat healthy, and I've still been steadily gaining since moving to Seattle. crap. I'd be the size of a hippo family if I ate how I really wanted to, I guess.

I really hate when people say you look like shit and your'e really fine. Yeah, my self esteem thanks you.

McRaven said...

Good going JS! I've lost 20 pounds in the last two months and I've dropped 2 of my pills. It's a good feeling, something like hope. :)

yellowdog granny said...

kalibitch:i looked so bad because the medicine was working too good and was dropping my blood sugar to 40..so now that I have cut it in half...it's normal and I don't look like shit any more..except when I don't wear make up..ha
jan:yeah really crappy when people tell you, you look like shit and your really ok..ha
rox:she tried to change it to knees and elbows and I laughed and said have you seen my tits?..no matter how much weight I lose..I'll always have tits..
tex:we have the same friends..ha
elizabeth:yeah, the alternatives are not as bad as having to eat right and excerise..
morecowbell:yeah, I wanna go to everyone and say:"do I still look like shit?"
mcraven:and you know I just FEEL better with each lb that comes off...hope is good...

High-Maintenance & Hostile Heidi said...

You're my hero!!! That's awesome!

I didn't know you could actually get off your blood pressure meds someday! I was told I'd be on them for life! Whoo hoo! This gives me something to strive for!

Well, if you found a way to cut out pasta and Dr. Pepper from your life, so can I (I LOVE BOTH WAY TOO MUCH). If you found a way to exercise, so can I. I'm not sure I'll ever get my house cleaned up, but I'm going to try!

You go, granny!

yellowdog granny said...

hmhh:well, my blood pressure was brought on by my weight gain..and when i started losing weight, my blood pressure went down...but im really proud of my self on the diabetes ..

Buzzardbilly said...

Are you implying that my all Cheetos and Winstons diet is bad for me?

Way to go! Maybe I can learn from your example.

Christie said...

Glad to hear you are doing so well, you've given me incentive to change my wicked ways. Do you really like my frame or are you just messing with me? I have bi-polar decorating syndrome, swinging from creepy to creepily sweet and adorable. Guess the key to my whole personality is borderline creepy disorder. And you cleaned your house too?! If you weren't my new BFF I would be calling you a bitch.

I've been out here three times to comment and something interrupted me every time.
I thought that first picture was referring to my picture on my blog. If it works for me the way it has for you I might be immortal.
I had the same thing happen with my Metformin. Mine was changed to one that doesn't lower your blood sugar but tries to keep it from going to high.
Not too many things as scary as waking up with a blood sugar level lower than 50.

It got into the high 60's today and I'm thinking about buying sunscreen and a swim suit.

If you lose too much weight won't you just fall over from being top heavy?

Babs said...

You didn't look like shit yesterday and you weren't wearing make up then. You just looked like shit because your blood sugar dropped.
And I'm so glad you finally got your looking like shit stubborn ass to the doctor and got good news.
What trouble? According to everyone I meet, you've gotten into trouble with them in the past.

kath said...

Yay on you!!!!

Allan said...

Congratulations, that's great news about your meds. :) A little willpower goes a long way.

yellowdog granny said...

nitwit:I quit taking guideride or what ever it's called and talk 1/2 of metaformin a day..what are you taking, maybe I should look into it..wonder if house of satan sells it for $4 too? years ago when I was weighing in at 109...some one told me I should consider tying a block of cement around my neck and tossing it over my shoulder on my back to keep me from falling over...hope that will be a problem again some day..
babs:yeah, I was trying to say that but it came out wrong.ha..
what can I tell you?..I had an adventurours life ...
allan:you know?..I really am proud of myself ..
josh:yup..the judge is the owner of one of 2 liquor stores..was the only one for the longest town..but we are a town of 2's...
