Holy itchy hell

I have no idea what happened, but Wed I erupted in hives.  I've never had a major problem with allergies, so I didn't stress about it, but OMG.. They just got worse and worse.  Yesterday I thought I was going to die and I finally headed to urgent care.  Benadryl and hydrocortizone cream were not touching it.  I'm still moderately itchy, but I'm not clawing my skin off... it is a small victory, but I'll take it.  I'm about to throw the baby in the stroller and head up to Kroger to pick up my prednisone.  I've heard all sorts of horror stories about it.. I'm more than a little nervous.

In other news my ^@$%^@!*(@%$%@ scale broke.  Someone stuck it under a leaky sink and now it won't come on at all.  I'm so not a happy camper.  I use that scale EVERY DAMN DAY.  I'm hoping I come across one at goodwill or something before Monday.


  1. Hi I am a first time visitor to your site.

    Congrats on all your success!

    I am SO HAPPY for you!!!

    Did I read that you lost 80 pounds in 22 days doing P90X?

    I am interested in P90X but I don't know any one who does it. In the ad every one is sooo skinny I didn't know if I could do it or not. Was happy to see that you had done it. I am around 217 and my goal weight is 118 to 120 which is what I weighed before.

    Oh btw hope your itchy is much better! I broke out in a rash head to toe after using organic 100% cocoa butter skin moisturizer. I burned like I was on fire. Feel better.

  2. LOL! Oh I wish it could be that easy! I don't think anyone can lose 4lbs a day for 20 days straight and not be dying. I started P90X in May of last year so 15 months and I've lost 110-120lbs I'm fluctuating at the moment because I've been lazy as hell. I'm still determined to turn August into a great month!
