Helen from The Biggest Loser is 5'6" according to the show's website. I made an earlier statement that I thought I was in the same fitness league as Helen these days. I don't know what I was thinking - she's in week 18 (at least) of working out a bazillion hours a day. I'm fit, I'm just not Helen fit. So she is smaller than me. In addition, we are shaped differently. I carry all my junk in my trunk and on my hips/thighs. At no weight will anyone say my legs look skinny. I'm just not built that way. But even so, we are in the same ballpark and I'm okay with that.
Dental surgery (THE BIG ONE) is schedule for next Tuesday. I went in for pre-op stuff today and I cannot find a drugstore that has any of my pain meds. I cannot tell you how distressing this is for me - a highly dental-phobic patient without the ability to secure post-op pain meds. I am supposed to know by Friday if the THIRD pharmacy I went to can even order them for me. This does not make me feel calm and collected. And reading the post-op instructions nearly have me in a panic. Too bad I'm to busy to panic.
