a surprising cruise and new medicine

We got back from our cruise yesterday (debarkation was wicked easy in San Diego, though there was a surprise during the trip), and I was absolutely thrilled to see I actually lost three pounds on the cruise. No, your eyes aren't deceiving you.

I did it because I was determined. I politely said "no" to the bread they offered at dinner each night, and stayed away from any pasta or potatoes on the cruise. My lone indulgence was a small fat-free frozen yogurt cone each day (and I didn't eat the cone) -- mentally, I told myself I was substituting the yogurt for my usual glass of milk I'd have. This was my third cruise, and the first where I returned home weighing less than when I left!

So I started the Provera (I read the label on the bottle...Medroxyprogesterone is the generic substitute for it) today to get my period going. We'll see how that goes. Thanks to everyone for your kind notes off-line about my blog. And to those of you who said you wanted to post but couldn't, I think I've fixed that problem, so feel free to post away!
