Wow! It's been a while since I last blogged. I have been busy and tired. I am frustrated with my lack of weight loss progress lately. I just can't seem to remain focused. The date is fast aproaching to when I must order the dress for my son's wedding and I am not where I had hoped to be. I have been stuck in the same ten pound range for three years now and I am so ready to see something different. I have to change something to get the results I want and I know that it is, but just lack the oomph to do so it seems. My best friend just lost a bunch of weight, again :( :), and is so encouraging to me telling me that indeed I CAN do this. That means so much to me to hear one positive voice out there. Notice I said hear, you guys are great. Who said one voice doesn't make a difference? It sure does to me to hear her say I can do it. She is proof I can.
Weddings are very much on my mind today. Thursday is the last day I have to work with my favorite co-worker. She's getting married in a couple of weeks and then, because she just earned her degree in May, will transfer to another part of our company for a better paying job. I am excited for her that the opportunity has presented itself to her, but sad and slefish for me. She has struggled so much trying to finish her degree, plan a huge wedding with glitch after glitch, and working full time. She has had medical issues to further complicate things. I want to get her something special as a wedding gift. They haven't yet received little things like glasses, coffee mugs or measuring spoons. Can someone give me some great ideas so I can get her something meaningful and yet practical as they start their life together? I would love to hear from you.
