Wandering mind on a Wednesday...

I weighed myself this morning so that I could report back!

Starting weight: 193
Today: 190.4


I like those numbers! :) Not as good as the 188 I once saw on the scale not too long ago! But hopefully soon I'll see it again! (And then let it pass by...haha)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This morning we had our "interview" with the food assistance office. The lady was super nice which helped to fix my anxiety about the whole thing. Everyone had given me horror stories about being denied and the things I needed to have for proof of citizenship...blah blah blah! So, needless to say, I haven't slept very well since Friday!

Today, she told us that there's no reason she can see that we would be denied!! **Insert excited face** And that we should know our benefits in the next couple days (at which point we can go get food...nom nom nom)!

Thank goodness!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm kind of freaking out lately. I don't know if it's warranted, but I really don't want this all to come back! I've been itchy...

For those of you that have known me for a while or have read my blog for a few years know what I'm talking about. But for those who are like, "OMG, this girl is itchy?! WTF does that mean?!". I was diagnosed with Chronic Urticaria (hives) before I was pregnant. I basically was having histamine reactions in my body for no reason! HA, fun, right?! No, not at all.

Well, lately, my hands have been getting little spots on them and my legs are kind of itchy here and there. Pregnancy puts it all in remission because of the boost in hormones (dont know how that quite works but it does) and I've prayed that it would just stay in remission...

I still pray for it to stay away...

I hated the sleepless nights...the zombie feelings because I was on so many different antihistamines...the constant itching that tested my sanity...the funny looks from people cause I was covered in hives...the watching what I eat so its not triggered...etc.

Please, PLEASE, let it stay away...
