173- That's 11 pounds higher than I was in October. TOM came on Saturday so I was even down 2 or so from the beginning of the week. Ugh, I can't cross my legs (again) and my thighs rub until they are raw. (I had to wear Glide to walk to work!)
So just in time (to save myself from myself) I happened upon a BL Team that was starting. No wait list, stats don't have to be on Spark and yes, it's for a little cash. If I don't win and don't gain any weight I'm out $7 and two stamps. If I win I'd get over $100. I'm not much of a gambler but $7 is $7. It's the meal at McDonalds that I won't be eating for the next 7 weeks.
I'll admit it. I have no excuse. I don't have 8 family dinners I need to go to during the holiday season, I have maybe 2. I even have a new job as an admin at a hospital. It's a 3 minute walk from my apartment. I'll be home almost an hour earlier than I have been for the past year and it's still a full time job and pays more too. I can walk home for lunch. I can pack a lunch. I don't even walk by a restaurant on the way down. I can exercise before dark. And on Monday I'll find out if they cover a gym membership. It's like someone is looking over me (Nanna?) and gave me the best fitting job/location/pay/opportunity that I've ever had just after my 31st birthday.
And now to be a part of this team. I can feel the excitement through the glowing screen of my computer. It's like going to a party with all new friends that you are guaranteed to like. I welcome you all and at the end whoever wins I'll send them a portioned bag of macadamia nuts.
