So my clothes are falling off of me now! So I went to one of my fav stores today to try and find some new clothes. I got size 4 pants! I'm down two sizes :) Yay me!!


September here I come

Monday, September 03, 2007

I feel totally recovered from my lithotripsy. It was pretty bad on Thursday, but I was actually in a lot less pain than the last time I had this done. Final test will be an xray at the end of the month to check the progress, but I've seen lots of stone particles coming out, which is good.

So tomorrow it's back to work and back to working out. I really slacked off in August for many reasons. It's back to the grind! And I'm determined to lose the rest of my weight this month. Even have a second goal of 115 pounds. Just have to reach my first goal!

    U can do it Gwenn! I know you can. You are going to meet your goal in September and then you'll make the second goal too.
Keep it up!

I'm still here

Monday, August 27, 2007

It's been awhile since I've written in my blog. There have been a lot of awful personal things I've been dealing with and I've really struggled with incorporating my daily exercise in. I know the times that I do that I feel a lot better about things and about myself. I'm not too far away from my first goal, although I think this week will probably be a gain as it is about that time of the month. Although maybe I'll lose a bit since Thursday I have to have my lithotripsy. Not looking forward to that! For those of you who don't know, a lithotripsy is where they use shock waves to break up kidney stones. So I'm sure I'll be in some pain and not eating much. I hope that my recovery time won't be too long and I can get back to actually working out.

    Bless your heart! I didn't know you were having that done Thursday... I will be thinking about you all that day. Keep working out even though you are having a rough personal time. You will feel better about yourself--inside and out. Nothing compounds problems more than feeling bad about yourself. It just makes things worse. When you exercise, you focus the energy away from whatever the problem is for that short period of time.
You can do it!
Love ya,

Very rough week

Saturday, August 11, 2007

And don't think I see any light at the end of the tunnel for awhile. I can't get into it, but I'm having extreme personal problems right now. That, along with having to make a difficult decision whether to take another job, made me drop about 3 pounds. I really wasn't exercising at all for almost two weeks and today was the first time I have. I decided to stay in my job and I am determined to make it better for myself.

    Stress makes it harder to lose weight. (But not impossible:) Exercise is my key. It helps alleviete the stress which helps lose the weight. And I feel better too. I hope your job is ok. Keep on going.

Love ya!

Troubled Times

Saturday, August 04, 2007

Well I sorta cheated and moved my weigh day to today. Well really not cheating, just forgot! I weighed in at 126.8- a little bit of weight loss. What's silly is I was only able to workout twice this week. Had to make up my voice lesson one night, got home late two nights, and the third one was a massive headache. Plus my dumb AC is going again- probably a leak or some other problem, so the guy is supposed to come out on Tuesday. I can't afford these power bills, not to mention this heat is not very fun either.

I've had many personal things going on in my life and it's been a tough journey this week, and last. Issues with my husband and job issues. I'm having second thoughts about the job that I applied for. It's an easy in- back to something I was doing before- but a different department. It's comfortable, but at the same time intimidating with people who may not be too friendly. I'm second guessing things right now. Not sure if I should leave where I am or continue plugging along through the various frustrations I deal with. So in a few minutes I'm going to start writing down the pros and cons for each side to see if this will help me. I was verbally offered the job on Friday, but they won't give me any money because I had a raise in January and I was given a little money to come over to the job I'm at now in March. Seems pretty stupid to me. That's not really my issue, but it doesn't make it very enticing. It would be like that for anything I applied for, unless it was a promotion. I'm feeling terrible because if I say no then I feel like I've wasted everyone's time and I totally don't mean to. My friends keep telling me that I have to think of myself. Do this for me. If it's not right, don't do it. Doesn't make it any easier! So...I'm sure I'll have a couple more sleepless nights until this is over. I haven't had a chance to talk to my boss because he's been on vacation, but I talked to my other boss and a couple of people in another area that my boss is over. I feel like I may have more opportunity later if I just keep plugging along.

Until next time...

    I am so sorry that I haven't been there for you the past week or two. My computer has been acting up badly, and I have been working every day late and on my break everyday to get ready for my evaluation. I am sorry that you have been having problems at home and at work. Hang in there. If you need to talk, I am here. I will start going to the library on my break next week and that will help.
