After last month's fiasco, where I let myself go and gained back some of the weight I'd lost, I am happy to report that I am now losing the weight again. I had the opportunity to weigh myself during a study I'm participating in (a brain study...they're going to look see if I actually have one!
) and discovered that I had lost 3 pounds since my last weigh-in at my doctor's office a couple weeks ago. It feels good to see some progress, so now I just have to keep up the momentum. I know it's going to be difficult in the next couple months, with all the food holidays coming up. On top of that, I am at the point of giving my BF an ultimatum...either get a job in 2 weeks, or you're OUTTA here. He's a good bit of the reason I'm so stressed; I'm carrying all (or most) of the financial burden on my part time job. I just had my evaluation, and I'll be getting a raise, but I just don't want to do it all with such small returns. He either has to pull his own weight (ouch!) or I'll just have to do it on my own. I think, in the long run, I'll be happier on my own. I've gotten too dependent on him on many levels, and I'm becoming very weak, physically and emotionally. So, it's time to cut the cord and make it on my own.
