Actually not so ran dumb, just random notes. have not been posting in a long time, not just here but on my live journal too.
So, here's what's happened in the last month since I've written.
1) Dianne Carol-Lee Leverette born 12/26/09. ab... Read more
Hopped on the scales fully dresed yesterday and for the first time in about 14 years, did _not_ top out at 150+. In fact have not gone over 150 for over a week now. Yay!
Making my infamous peanut brittle today. No! Don't point fingers and ... Read more
I beed bad
Not terribly bad, but not doing my exercises. I did manage to drop another pound, been hovering between 149 and 153 for about ........ many months. Finally dropped a bit more. Trying to eat a bit better and exercising at my desk. It's been ... Read more
Had to get a new coat. My dd broke the zipper in the last one so I needed one anyway and also ........ I needed to get a smaller size. Yay! Last time I got a coat I was a size 18 and now I'm a 12. I still got the large instead of the medium... Read more
This is just sooooooooo cool!
I think that the last time I'd updated, I'd accepted the job at Carnival Cruises. A few days before training was to start, they cancelled the class due to a hiring freeze so it was back to job hunting. I got hired by my current employer a few ... Read more
Big big ego boost
My ex stopped by this morning to see my daughter and we chatted for a bit (and no, wasn't tempted to just outright murder him this time), and he said "you have lost a lot of weight. You look really good." Ok, it's the ex and he babbles but he ... Read more
Some really good news
Along with finally getting off that weight loss plateau, I got a job. Yeay!!! I start at Carnival Cruise lines August 3. Been off since the lay off at Atmel in mid December. It's not quite what I wanted to do but it pays the same as unemploy... Read more
Rain rain go away!
I don't really mean it but ....... man, some seriously violent rain storms every afternoon. I even had to stake up the parsley in the garden. My joints are swelling, especially my right thumb. Why that one in particular? I have no idea. On... Read more
As soon as I started carrying my poncho in the car, I got the chance to hike that trail I'd been wanting to hike. Took middle daughter and the grandmonsters down it to the next trail junction. The city and county are creating a large network o... Read more
Went out for my daily walk and got caught in one of our freak rain storms. They blow up quick, dump rain, and then move on. I'd walked maybe a quarter of a mile when the first rain drops hit. Because the wind was picking up a lot, I figured ... Read more
Still no change
I still haven't lost anymore weight but I stopped the upward crawl. We had a wonderful Midsommer's with the kindred. Fortunately, everyone brought stuff from their gardens so there was lots of salady stuff and lean meats with relatively low s... Read more
Getting no where fast
I'm still at the same weight as I was 2 weeks ago. I walk more, usually, and eat less and I'm still the same. I hates plateaus. I do. How long do these last? Must not give up. Feeling very tired these days, no energy. But then, it's bee... Read more
I'm back home now and weighed in this am. I didn't gain any but didn't loose either and I suppose that's a good thing. I did watch portion and pretty much what I was eating but Friday was a blowout. We did more sightseeing but didn't do as mu... Read more
hitting the road
I'm heading out at O butt crack of way before dawn 30 tomorrow for a week long trip to Baltimore. My baby girl is graduating from high school on Tuesday night. My son comes home on Monday so my sister in law will have to pick him up. I really... Read more
The sun finally came out yesterday. My sister and I went to Costco first and meandered around. I hadn't been there yet, can't decide if I like it better than Sam's Club or not. They did have my sweet passion though, Jelly Belly's. I was good ... Read more
