Everything is still good, job is great. Could have moved up but chose to take it easy for awhile and get the rest of my life in order. Weight loss has been slow this round but it's still happening and I'm working on getting more exercise. I need to go down 10 more to get out of the overweight category on the BMI. I might get close on this round, I should have enough for 2 more weeks. By then I should be able to fit in the pair of 8 pants I have without feeling they are way too tight. I've bought a couple of things, bought 2 pair of jeans at costco without trying them on and was thrilled to buy 10's without trying them and have them fit. Small pleasure's in life. Stress is way down and I'm enjoying time with friends and life is good for the first time in many years so I'm incredibly grateful! Hope everyone is doing well. Take care!

I'm back and just starting round 2 . . . finally. Haven't gained any weight back. The last few month's have been incredibly hard but I made some huge decisions. I quit my job, took a weeks vacation and started a new less stressful job with no Management involved, for less pay, but that's ok. I had other choices but went for the one that felt best for my life. The people are great at the new place and it's fun going to work instead of painful. This is my first week on the job. In six months if I feel a Manager position won't be too much with this company I can do that, but I'm taking it one step at a time. I've missed everyone. Thanks for all the notes and support, I really appreciate you!!

I've been absent for several weeks. Working on emotional issues and getting down time due to problems with my emotions and gut. Got through the 2 event week at work and am doing better. In the meantime my Assistant Manager had an opportunity to transfer back home to California and took it. His last day is tomorrow. I will have to train a new Assistant Manger and take up some computer work. I got a great referral from Tori Hudson who gave a talk at our store, and am working with a new doctor to balance my hormones. I've learned several things from her two are: she wouldn't take me off any med's or vitamins while on HCG which I agree with after doing my first round, so will do it differently next time. Also she said if you don't eat every two to three hours it taxes your adrenals. Well mine are already depleted so it gives me extra incentive to eat snacks.
In the last few days I've gone crazy with cookies and the scale has jumped. It's emotional eating great people leaving and more work coming my way. I also ate out with my Manager last week and went out last night with a friend. So It's time to get back to being good. I think I will start gearing up to do another round. Another thing I need to do is exercise out my emotions instead of bury them with food.
Today I cleaned out my car, washed it and detailed it. Iím driving other people to a training next week and it was way past time. It feels good to have a nice clean car. Noticed some rust so I need to find time to take care of it. Iíve been down physically and emotionally so havenít exercised or gotten my place cleaned up. Time to get the routine list made and get going.
I bought tickets to go see James Taylor and Carole King on Motherís Day. Havenít been to a concert in years and I need something fun to look forward to.
Two of my friends are now doing HCG and I want to check in a see how they are doing.
Lately, Iím still trying to figure out what to do next and where would be best to liveÖ
Ironically my Zumba shoes finally arrived, they are in the trunk of my car. I still need to do my leg exercises so I can dance again.
The good news is the clearing work I did has helped and Iím starting to do my own clearing again.
Iím so grateful for the books I found thanks to Thin Cammie. I feel like now I can structure my life so I wonít be so stressed and I wonít feel like a failure all the time.
Iím also so grateful for everyoneís support!

It's been a very busy week so really glad it's over. Although Sunday we have inventory and I have to be there at 5:30am...not my idea of a time to be out of bed!
Tomorrow I'm going to a friends house to give her tips on the HCG diet, she starts in a week or so.
Today has been cold and rainy but yesterday was glorious around 62, sunny and so nice...really enjoyed it.
Last weekend I picked up more organizing helpers. I'm getting there, either because I can't find something and have to clean to find it or because I get in the mood to declutter an area. So every day I make some progress on that front.
I got some equipment I needed for my physical therapy so got more done this week than I have before.
So small steps, but I keep making small gains and it all get's better.
Didn't log my food a couple days and one day I did but ate a little much, but the good thing is I correct and it goes down. I'm still down 35 pounds from where I began so I'm fine with that. I just want to kick up the exercise and tone. Last night I did strength training while watching a replay of Biggest Loser.
I'm ready to do another round, but there are lot's of events over the next 2 weeks and I can get cranky the first week so best not be like that when the owner comes.
The events are over Apr 10th and I don't really want to start later then that because we will be getting close to summer and I want to be able to feel good in shorts for a change. Another reason to start toning up NOW! Do it NOW Laurie!! Quit procrastinating until the evening is shot and nothing get's done.
Had a nice moment at work this week. Our back room has maybe 3 feet of walking space. There were people on both sides and I could get through without touching either one. Simple pleasures, it's so nice not to be so fat I fill up the hallway, or can't get through when a chair is out or someone else is there. Life is better.
Everyone have a lovely weekend!!
