I have my BS degree in Health Information Management and I am a Registered Health Information Adminstrator. I am still an active member of AHIMA and I'm required to complete 30 CEs every two years.
In June 2002, the hospital I worked at downsized and my position was eliminated. I have not worked since. I don't want to go back into this field as management is very stressful in a hospital environment.
I decided I wanted to work from home and so I took a step back and started an online medical transcription course in September 2006. I have not completed it yet. I just don't have the motivation to finish since I don't really "need" to work. I've been very blessed to have a wonderful husband who lets me stay home.
My goal is to be finished with this course and pass the final before September 2009.
This is going to be harder than losing weight!!

So, my size 10's are getting just a bit big, not much, just enough that there is a need for a belt. But I needed some shorts and capri's and Penny's was having another sale and I also had a 15% off coupon from a survey I took. So I went shopping.
Not knowing whether size 8 would fit me, I grab about 7 different pairs in both 8 and 10 size. I really don't like clothes shopping and trying things on (that makes my hubby really happy cuz I don't shop much...LOL).
Off to the dressing room I go. First size 10, too big! Try size 8, and guess what??? TOO BIG!
However, I try the rest on. Out of the 7 pairs, 3 fit for a size 8 and 4 pairs I need to try a size 6. No freakin way! My size 10s weren't THAT big!! Out of the two size 8s, I only liked 1 pair. But I did want to try on 2 other pairs of 6s.
So off I go to get the 2 pairs in a 6 and some other styles in size 6, 8 and 10 (just to be safe!)
Long story short, I came home with 2 pairs of size 8, 3 pairs of size 6, a medium size workout short, 2 medium and 1 small size shirts.
Can anyone tell me,
WHAT SIZE AM I?????
Yep, even at a smaller size, I STILL hate clothes shopping! And here I thought it would be fun. At least when I was heavier, I knew what size I was!

Weight 137 pounds
Down another pound...Woo Hoo!
This week I did something I swear I would never do in my life......I started jogging!
During my 70 minutes on the treadmill, I jogged 4 times for 2 minutes each. It doesn't really seem like much but for me it was excruciatingly painful! Ok, well, it really wasn't that bad but...
The first day I did it, I barely made it through the first 2 times of the 2 minutes. I thought I was dying....LOL Then the 3rd and 4th time was a tad bit easier.
The second day I did it, basically, was just like the first.
After the jogs, once I slowed the treadmill speed, I was still walking faster than I normally walked. So I'm thinking the jogging was a good boost.
I may never be a jogger, but at least I can say I tried!
Maybe I should just stick with the step aerobics......
