1. I posted my Remix fic yesterday, and I am very happy with it!

2. Fiona had the rest of her dental work done, and she was a little trooper. Now hopefully we can keep her from developing any more problems.


I've lost two pounds since school started, mostly because while I was going to the gym every day this summer, all the rest of the day, I was sitting on the couch or in a chair. I was also eating a big lunch of leftovers every day. Now that I'm working again, I'm walking and standing all day, and I'm eating a lighter lunch because I need to exercise immediately after lunch.

My weight has pretty much stayed the same since February (somewhere between 153-155 with me mostly clocking in at 155; now I'm clocking in at 152-153), but I've continued to lose clothing sizes. When I went shopping in May, I was in some 12s but they were mostly too big and the 10s were kinda tight. When I went shopping in July, all 12s of every brand were too big for me, and the 10s of pretty much every brand fit okay. When I went shopping in September, many of the 10s were too big for me, and I was fitting into a fair amount of 8s.

I just don't get the continued size drop at this point. I'm not doing anything deliberately to lose weight. I'm mostly eating the same way I have been and going to the gym every day. That's it. I'm not complaining by any means; I just don't quite understand what's going on. I suppose my body is still healing and reaching a healthy state from going gluten free.

Pants are still for the most part eluding me, but I have some really beautiful pieces in my wardrobe now. I'm feeling extremely happy about my clothes, and I look forward to getting dressed every day.

4. I'm nervous about Irma. The public schools are closed Monday and Tuesday. The university is taking a more wait and see approach. We're closed for Monday but still reserving judgement for Tuesday and beyond. We bought a bunch of water and etc., and I think we'll probably be okay, but I'm still nervous.

5. I am reading A Perfect Heritage by Penny Vincenzi, and I am delighted with it. I was skeptical at first because it looks like a traditional romance novel, so I put it to the side for awhile and didn't start reading it. It's really not a romance novel at all, though. I'm about 150 pages into it and the only affair being discussed happened like forty years ago in the novel's time. It's mostly about the cosmetics industry and all that goes into running an enormous company; it's pretty fascinating. It's also about a clash of wills between the old matriarch of the company and the woman who's been brought in to save the outdated and failing company. The book is more than 500 pages long, so I can tell that the romance novel aspects will eventually come to the fore; I can already see two places where extramarital affairs are bound to happen LOL. But I'm loving the characters and the world. This was a good pick, [personal profile] executrix. Thanks for sending it to me!

6. I had a couple glasses of wine last night to celebrate a friend getting a job. Now that I don't drink very often, it's astonishing to me how potent just a small amount of alcohol can be. I'm going to be tired all day today as a result. Oh, well. Now for another couple months of sobriety. LOL

Re #3: Muscle weighs three times as much as fat for the same volume. More muscle/less fat = same weight, smaller size.

It sounds like you're building lean muscle through exercise which weighs more than fat. You feel healthy now which is what matters most.

Yeah. Weight, for athletic people, is not a good measure of dress size at all (people tend to boggle when I tell them my weight, and my BMI is not low).

Yeah -- celiac affects your digestion, after all. Even if your intestinal tissue isn't super-damaged (I seem to recall yours wasn't devastated), perhaps it influences how food groups are absorbed? Even I only now seem to get enough protein to build definition, and I've always eaten plenty of it. And I met other celiacs that struggled with weight issues (not like you, bigger folks).

You sort of got volunteered into the Paleo Diet, which some people adopt if they want to build muscle, so that could also be a factor.

Just looked at the latest direction and sending ALL the thoughts your way! Cancel classes if you have to. (We had an incident recently where the uni just failed to cancel classes even though all the schools were closed, and I ended up in front of 10% of my class, because the students were smarter than me and didn't come and I had to cancel anyway. Faculty was furious and it was seriously dangerous your instincts!)

Stay safe and let us know when the worst is over for you!

(I agree about the weight, I have been told that muscle does weigh more than just fat, though being me I've never been in a position to test it...)
