So, in March, my father passed away, since then I've been emotional eating, BIG TIME, after I had been doing so well with my weight loss... I'm pretty much back to square one.
I'm still daily vlogging on Youtube, you can check me out here: www.youtube.com/theamberfiles/ if you want. I'll be doing weekly weight check-ins every Friday to monitor my progress, or lack-there-of.
I don't want to dive too much into personal stuff at the moment, I'm still a bit emotional about it and don't want to break open that wound again tonight.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, by the way.

I haven't blogged over here on SP in a long time, mostly because life has been so super busy and more recently, I've started daily vlogging on Youtube. I pretty much film most of my day and it helps me keep track of weight-loss too, but my weight isn't really the main focus of my videos, it's just chronicling my life in-general.
Filming myself is helping me deal with self esteem issues and insecurities, since when I edit my videos, I have to look at my face and hear my own voice constantly. Like I'm getting used to myself or something.
www.youtube.com/theamberfiles Check my videos out sometime :D
As far as exercise goes, I recently purchased a Wii game called "My Fitness Coach" and it's been kicking my butt, in a good way. I've been doing it every day for just a week, minus on the weekend, and can already feel and see a difference in my body. I guess I just needed a little push to get my body to start losing weight again, since I've been stuck on a plateau for a month or more.
Working on my diet, trying to go back to veganism, but this time, eating out at restaurants as a vegetarian. One of MY main gripes about being vegan before was that it was too hard to find food I could eat while we were at a restaurant, since my family usually loves going to steakhouses and I'm just not into eating a giant plain salad or worrying about what's in my food; as long as there's no chunks of dead animal in it or not swimming in dead animal juices, I'm fine.

I was researching some last night on health issues and ran across some of the most disturbing images I've seen in a long time. I wish I could unsee them, every once in a while, they just pop up in my mind and I try to make light of it and think of it in different and amusing ways, but it's still imprinted in my mind as the same disgusting things.
Reminder to myself: Don't get curious about odd medical conditions and go researching them again.

The other night at dinner, my sister said that it was her 4th glass of water that day, but she was annoyed she had 4 more to drink. We all looked at her like "a serving of water is 1 cup, not a whole glass, a bottle is 2 servings" she was like "what? really? I've been always upset that I didn't drink 8 glasses a day. Aww man, I could have got tea."
xD Just wanted to remember that story for later on.

With all the stuff going on, haven't had time to make a blog on here.
Last week, my dad was diagnosed with cancer and my parents are brushing it off like it's not a big deal. My Dad's main concern with the treatments is how he'll look without a mustache. My mom has made insensitive remarks (that usually wouldn't be, if it were a different situation). I can't help but wonder if they're in-denial about the seriousness of this or if the situation isn't really as bad as I see it.
My friends on Youtube keep leaving me comments like "I know what you're going through, my [relative] was diagnosed with cancer a few years back, they died recently" and I'm just like
