B-12 injection

I got a B-12 injection today and a prescription for B-12 vitamins to take twice a day. I had my annual blood work done early in the week and they called me yesterday to say my B-12 was deficient. So, I'm anxious to see if I feel any different. I don't think I have been any more tired than usual. But, one thing I read on the web was that one symptom of B-12 deficiency is a red sore tongue. Oddly enough, last week my tongue was very red and sore, coincidence? I don't know. While I was out today going to the Doctor, I stopped a Ross and bought 3 dresses and 2 shirts for $60.00. I love a bargain! And, they were all size 16! I tried on several 14's that fit too, but I didn't like them as well. I was feeling pretty good about myself and decide to do the old tried and true "snap a pic in the dressing room with my phone" move that so many of you do. I didn't have my glasses on, so when I got in the car, I pulled out the phone to look at the pictures, amazingly, I did not look as good in the photo as I thought I did, in fact I look really pretty frumpy and if I hadn't been behind schedule, I would have gone back in the store to return the items. I will likely do that tomorrow. So, lesson learned...bring glasses in the dressing room and trust a photo before the mirror.

I'm going to leave work a little early today to go to the movie with my sister and sister-in-law, we're going to see Bridesmaids. I'm excited about that.

Last night the hubs and I went to the football scrimmage and then out for dinner and drinks at a great Italian place, with some great friends. It was a wonderful night. The hubs can barely walk today and is going back again tonight to crossfit. Think happy thoughts for him!

Big Hugs!

I look forward to hearing if there's any difference after you've taken the vitamins for a bit. Let us know.

B vitamin shots are awesome! I have a prescription for a shot every month. It makes a big difference for me.

Good luck and happy thoughts for the hubby :)

Yay for 16's! I think I need to start taking pics in dressing rooms too. I get home and it never quite looks like it did at the store.
