Its crazy, I have been taking the long way to work and back to keep the temptation down. So far so good. I have only stopped at Mcdonald's on way to work a few times but only got an unsweetened tea. I recently started making my own tea at home and taking it with me to keep from stopping for anything. Today after work it popped in my head to stop at checkers for an Ice cream cone <em>18</em> I made... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 21:42:07 EST Tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5207502 woke up feeling out of sorts this morning. It might had something to do with a 2am on-call emergency...lol. One good thing is that I have not been hungry all day. I have only been able to eat about 800 cal. when I'm trying to stick to at least 1200. I weighted myself sunday and was down 2 lbs.. <em>244</em> hope to get more sleep tonight. <BR> Mon, 14 Jan 2013 22:04:59 EST my first video http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5203010 first video <BR> This is the first video of many to come, documenting my weight loss journey.

I am ready to start a new, phase in life. I plan to work toward getting gastric bypass surgery. Its not something i just decided, I had started the process in 2008, but my health insurance got dropped by my employer. So almost a years of worth of work trashed.
