Why not?

I wasn't going to create just a blog blog, but I thought, "Why not?" Maybe it will help me those times when I am trying to sleep but I just keep thinking about senseless things. Like "Hrm maybe I should just throw away all my socks and replace them all next time I'm out."
I'm sure we all do that.
Anyway a lot on my mind today. First of all I'm pretty happy because yesterday when I went out to eat with the husband and some friends I was able to wear my size 14 pants again. (It's kind of exciting for me just to be able to put on something other than pajamas or scrubs to begin with.) But 2 weeks ago my size 16's were starting to get a tad tight. How am I doing this? I'm cheating. Not even doing that great of a job with it, either lol. I went to a weight loss clinic, or as I've been calling it, "the fat doctor". I'm on phentermine. Yeah, if it isn't actually "Phen-Phen" it's pretty close. I thought phen-phen was actually taken off the market, so hopefully this isn't quite as bad. I haven't checked my BP or anything since I've been on it but I don't feel any weird palpitations or anything. I just feel a little more energetic and fill up a little faster. How can I complain about that? I'm also taking the "diet shots". These aren't just B12. They have B6 and adenosine too. I really think they help out. An hour after my first one I was bouncing off the walls, and had been up for almost 24 hours.
When I first went to the clinic, actually.. it was 3 weeks ago, not two. Oops. Anyway I weighed 181.1 lbs. I am not weighing myself every day but just on Mondays. I was 170.3 I think yesterday. And really I haven't been eating better; just eating less.

Okay enough about my fat ass. My friend dyed my hair for me the other day, which is nothing new, but this time I went lighter. We bleached it first. I was just too curious and (especially with my hair) I always let curiosity get the best of me. I do like it, though. It looks kinda weird but when I take the flat iron to it it's better. It was kind of a crazy orange, but now it's fading to more of a strawberry blonde. No idea what I'll do when I start getting roots, though. I don't usually keep the same color for more than 2 months.
Here it is, but I think this was before it faded:

So if anyone actually reads this who has one of these blogs, does it always post the picture on top for you too? It's a bit annoying to have to go to the html to move the picture where I want it. Oh well. Think I'll shut up and get the house cleaned up.
