So I weighed myself today and lost .4 pound... to me that is nothing. I'm a bit discouraged that I'm not really losing much weight. I've always had problems losing weight and it gets very discouraging not losing weight. I used to be 350 pounds at my heaviest and I am now down to 277.4 pounds which is a lot of weight but I can't seem to lose much weight now. Maybe I'm not eating healthy enough... I switched my milk from whole milk to 2% milk and trained myself to like it and then this month I have made the switch to non fat milk and it tastes awful to me. It literally tastes like water! No milk flavor whatsoever to me.
On a better note I did a ton of homework yesterday and did my weeks worth of homework for 2 classes. This semester is general education classes consisting of anthropology, nutrition, and computer literacy. I'm going for an associates degree in office administration and so far so good. This is my third semester and I have gotten all A's and have a 4.0 GPA which has paid off because I was awarded a second grant which is through the state of California. It's good to know my smarts are useful for something. My goal is to graduate with a 4.0 GPA... let's hope I make it!
Stress levels are through the roof. Trying to eat healthy on a budget has my nerves on fire. I am constantly stressed about money, my weight, my health, losing weight, trying to find a job, trying to stretch the money we have to last, and bills. Goodness! I'm surprised I don't have high blood pressure. I should really check my blood pressure at the grocery store next time just so I can assess my blood pressure since it does run high in my family.
I have a great business idea that I am very passionate about. I really want to have my own cupcake business. Sure it isn't the healthiest thing but it makes me happy, I enjoy it, and it is something I am good at and love to do. Baking for me is therapeutic... why not try to make some money out of it? The idea I have is a retro themed cupcake bistro which I think would be amazing and a different tone than your average cupcake bakery. I have another idea but I'll keep that on the down low because it is something I haven't seen before. I really find cupcakes to be simply beautiful! I have an idea for about 15-20 different flavors and to help me on my diet I have friends and family who are more than willing to be test tasters!
