I love towels. I can't have too many. I love people that give me towels for my bday or xmas. lol. Now I use two towels when I showed. One for my hair and one for my body. I suppose most women do this right?

This morning I had to grab two fresh towels out of the cabinet. I was very much asleep as I got up early to come into work 30 mins early. My pink towels were easily available so I grabbed them.

I remember having this thought as I stepped in the shower "dang that pink towel is too small. Oh well I'll deal". What did I mean by that? Well I use the striped towel for my hair cause it's thinner and stays on my head easier. Both towels are the same size though. And that's the problem. I normally use a "normal" size bath towel for my head and an oversized towel for my body. Because otherwise there is a big gap in the towel cause I'm too freaking fat. This morning when I finished showering I was happy to realize that the towel fits!!! Yes there are no gaps. I mean I could answer the door in this towel. That wouldn't be the most comfortable thing in the world, but what I'm saying is that you can't see nothing! lol. It's amazing what little things I notice as I get more comfortable in my smaller body.

So this morning I weighed in at 177.0. Up from yesterday but I'm ok with that. Aunt Flo is visiting and yesterday was a rough food day. I ate way too much candy. Probably TMI by my new birth control isn't really working as it should I guess. Aunt Flo wasn't suppose to come till later this week. I think I'll be switching back cause I have trust issues with this pill as a result. And of course it's bad timing to have trust issues when hubby and I are about to fly off to Cancun. *fingers crossed*


  1. What pill are you on? I'm on Loestrin 1/20 (well, the generic form -- Microgestin) and I never go off it. There are no sugar pills, I go from one pack to the next. The result -- I haven't had a period for years. :o) Handy and convenient, since the doctors won't consent to the alternative (completely removing all of the equipment). I've actually been on the pill since I was 17 without a break. Apparently that's not a good thing. And I don't doubt that it makes weight loss difficult, from everything I've heard.

    Hmm. I think I prefer being fat to going back to the periods I had as a teenager. I do wonder if things would be different now, but back then they just made my life miserable (super heavy & painful). I'm not really willing to find out at this point.

  2. I'm on Lo Loestrin FE and it's EXPENSIVE. I have 24 pills, then 2 drop downs and then 2 placebos that contain iron (hence the FE). It was suppose to help with sex drive being low hormone. I doesn't. I had my period in week 2 during month 2 and now week 3 during month 3. I don't like it. I like to be able to skip the week of placebos on the old pack and not have a period. I don't think that's a "safe" on this pack. I also kind of like to be able to have a period every other month or so. Just to be "sure". Ya know? I guess I don't think this pill is working that well. I worry my body is having my period when it wants to and not related to the pill. So now what? I could switch on Sunday this week back to my old pill if the Dr agrees. But you seem to be at risk during the first week (or month?) of a new pill. So now may not be the best time. Ahh!
