Open House Today?!?!

Sunday, September 26, 2010

The first open house was from Noon until 2PM today, I hope it went well. My unemployment is not going as well as I had hoped. I am working harder now that I did when I worked all the time. It is probably a good thing I am not working. I would have had a time trying to get this finished while I was employed full time (plus a few hours a week). I just don't want to think that something I could have done kept the house from selling as soon as possible. I have a tendency to a bit of a perfectionist on some things. That being said my dietary choices the last couple of days have been much less than perfect. I am not too upset about it though. I am surviving a less than perfect situation as well as I can. It is unrealistic to think that I would just stop having the issues I have fought my entire life now when there is so much to worry about. Tomorrow is another day. I am not giving on today either. I will eat dinner in a bit since I am low on protein and skipping a healthy meal because I had a bad couple of days is stupid. No point in adding insult to injury. I haven't heard how the open house went yet. I left and didn't get back until 30 minutes after it was over. I will call tomorrow if they don't call or email me to see how it went. Fingers crossed ( and everything else I can cross)!

One More Day Until the Open House

Saturday, September 25, 2010

I really hope this house sells fast. I am so ready to go to LA and get my life started again. I feel like I am in limbo currently. I found a place called Door Doctor. They are coming at 11am to see about fixing the door threshold. I tried but it was way over my skill level. I decided it was time to call in a professional and quit wasting time on it. Once that is done and I clean my bathroom I am done...until I run across something else. I hope I don't find anything. Of course I will. That is just how that goes I guess. I had better get with it.

The List Continues and Grows

Friday, September 24, 2010

Well I am still trying to finish the house and now I have a reason. They are having an open house on Sunday. That certainly put a little urgency into the mix. I am close but every time I finish something I find another thing that needs to be done. I only have a couple big projects and the rest a small annoying things. I would love to knock them out today so I could take tomorrow off but I don't know if I will be able to manage that on my own or not. This is one of the times I really miss my hubby. I just want to finish everything, sell the house and get to LA...stat! Unfortunately it doesn't always work out the way we want. Yesterday was a "freak out and eat candy" day. I am already back on the wagon and hoping it doesn't set me back too far. I wish I didn't have such a sweet tooth. I really like salty too. Lets face it you don't get to the size I was without loving almost all food. Well I have to get going on my list of chores.

    Nothing like company (even strangers) to make you clean house!

Another Great Rainy Day

Thursday, September 23, 2010

It was raining again today. I love rainy days since we don't get many in ABQ. It is back to sunny now though. I am still slightly below goal this morning. It is just starting to sink in. I did it. I am going to keep this up. It is fun to be in control for once. I only have 2 more things to do to the house and I'm done (I think). I have to clean out the fridge and finish a couple paint touch ups outside. Then I will be done unless I run into something else. It is probably more like when I run into something else. What is it about owning a house that causes there to never be a moment that you can say with certainty that you are done? Oh well I will do whatever comes up I suppose. Better get going. I need to run to the grocery at some point today.

I Reached Goal This Morning!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

I am officially at goal. I am actually at 133.8 and my goal was 134. I am down 137.2. It took about 7 years all together. I didn't find Spark People until last Nov. and didn't take advantage of it until March. I lost the last 50ish with SP. I am really excited. I actually think I might be able to do this long term. That is the challenge. I have lost hundred of pounds over the last 50 years. Now I just need to figure out how to maintain it. I can do it! I now understand what it takes. SP has allowed me to focus on the parts of a healthy lifestyle that were actually working for me and not waste time on things that weren't. I think it has been the key to my recent success. Without it I wwould have probably hung around the 185-200 mark. Now I am in a size 4 jeans and a 6-8 dress. Pretty cool!!!! (Que the Rocky song here)

    Congratulations on reaching your goal weight!!

I have a couple of friends on my page who have been here on SP maintaining their weight loss for the past several months. They belong to a team for maintainers. You might find that helpful too -- now that you've reached goal.
