it's coming out!! the gland that ruined my life has come to an end!
More exciting stuff going on!!! I am having my thyroid removed!! The whole thing gone! While this may sound scary to most and I am definitely not looking forward to going under the knife I am totally excited to not have this gigantic golf ball size cyst in my neck either. I am already going to have to be on meds the rest of my life so there is really no point to keeping it. I have no sentimental attachment in fact I think I might request to keep it and hang it on my wall and throw darts at it because seriously my thyroid and I have not had a happy last few years together. Good riddance. (and I will not really be requesting it because that would be gross and smelly and I dont like seeing things outside of my body that are supposed to be inside, even when I am glas they are gone.) Anyway, I go under Thursday morning so say a little prayer for me and hopefully this will help me stabilize my metabolism a little easier. So 30 pounds down and working on the rest by the time we move overseas. After this I will at least be able to wear normal sized necklaces instead of feeling like I have a neck like Mickey Rourke or even worse Ronnie from Jersey shore! (gosh that show is addicting). By the way I also have another new addiction, Pretzel M&M'a (150 cals for a whole freaking pack that lasts me like a day!) and Hallmark movie channel. I will elaborate on this later. While the world was freezing over this weekend I stayed in bed and watched every former full house or growing pains star in really poorly written films all weekend. It was AWESOME! be jealous and be ready for movie reviews.
