I have been slugging through this whole weightloss thing and I am definitely feeling more like a turtle than a hare. So far I have lost about 35 pounds and a few people have actually started to notice, which is nice. I got laid off from my job on Friday, which I am looking at as a good thing. I was plan on starting college in the fall and I am going to become a nurse, and now with out a job I will be able to focus on that more. I have found that so far it is actually easier to exercise and eat right when most of my focus is not actually on exercising and eating right. I think that is because when I was at my boring job with really no long or short term goals besides my weightloss, all that I could think of was food and exercise. I would go for walks thinking that I had to go for walks and while I was walking I was thinking about what I could eat for dinner. Now that becoming a nurse is my main focus it is much easier to find something else to think about besides food and exercise and that part just seems to be falling into place. Anyway, I am not starting school until the fall which gives me a few months to either do really well with my weightloss, or it could screw me up. It has only been like one day, so I guess we will see where things go from here! I am so excited to begin my new journey, and I am hoping that I will have the strength to reach both of my goals!
