Its almost two months since my last health update! I saw the doctor today (Well, a nurse practitioner, my doctor decided to leave and go somewhere else. Ho-hum.)
More good news though! I’ve continued to lose weight, from the original weigh-in with the nutritionist, I was 212 (eesh that number still makes me feel gross…) now I’m at 204 lbs.! I haven’t been exercising as much as I wanted to, but I continue to cut down on junk, I keep eating rice and vegetables and other foods that are better for me. I do feel better.
Physical therapy is going so-so. The exercises they have given me to work my shoulder haven’t done much, but I’ve gotten a machine that sends electric volts through my shoulder and it seems to help. I woke up without my right arm being numb for no reason for the first time in a long time! WEEEE! Lets hope that it continues to work.
Health aside, I’m also working more hours, investing more money in the costume shop, AND I got a kitty!!!! His name is Jasper, and he is jet black with bright yellow eyes. I will post a photo once I get a good shot of him, its so dark in my house the pictures are always blurry.
Can’t wait to get trucking on that Padme dress, I’m expecting fabric soon, and then the real work begins! I will be sketching out the costume and creating pattern pieces soon enough. YAY!!!!!!! The first post I did for it is so long, I think I’m going to make separate posts for the wig and the corset, as well as the physical aspects, embroidery, construction, etc. We shall see! Can’t wait to show you all!
