Graduated Today! Also, No Longer Overweight!

Saturday, May 08, 2010

I ended up making all A's this semester...barely, but an A's an A, so I guess all the stress paid off in the end ^_^ Today was graduation. And...

The ceremony itself was pretty unorganized. A lot of people didn't get into the auditorium because it filled up (including my grandmother and my aunt), and I also didn't like how they did the ceremony itself...they let the speakers talk for way too long, and then didn't bother to announce which degree anyone actually got (or even make a differentiation between the people who got 2 year degrees and the ones who got certificates), they just had us go in alphebetical order across the stage and pick up a diploma cover that did not contain an actual degree or certificate (those actually come in the mail, and so instead they had stuck a notice inside telling us to make sure we paid any outstanding library fines or parking tickets :P). They didn't do any special recognition for Phi Theta Kappa members, although they did announce the names of the people who graduated with honors (which means you graduated with at least a 3.5 GPA) -- I was a bit upset when my name was not called even though I have a 3.89 GPA (I'm going to have to find out what the deal with that was later).

So I wasn't that thrilled with how all that went, but I do think I met the goal I made back in January to "look great at Graduation."

Not that that's a very good picture, or that you can tell how much weight I've lost with the black robe on anyway ^_^;; But still, I'm feeling pretty good about how I look now.

I didn't quite make it to my goal of losing 34 pounds by graduation, but that's okay, because...

Yesterday, my Wii Fit finally stopped whining about me being overweight. If anyone reading this happens to be familiar with the Wii Fit, you may know that when you weigh yourself during a body test and it determines that you are overweight, it will say in a very annoying little voice, "That's overweight." Yesterday, when I weighed played a little music, and told me, "That's normal." I was so excited! I had been waiting for that moment for so long now...and hopefully, now I won't ever have to hear a video game tell me I'm fat again!

More importantly, I guess I'm not technically overweight anymore ^_^ I'm 145.5 lbs, which according to the Wii Fit at least, is in the "normal" range.

So that mean's I've lost twenty seven and a half pounds now, and in the end I was only six and a half pounds away from the goal I set back in January. Not too shabby.

In other news, I went ahead and started ordering some stuff to make a "Cutie Honey" cosplay--I decided to just go ahead and get the pieces, and then decide if I'm going to try to wear it in June to A-Kon or wait until Anime Fest (which I think is in September).

I also signed up for a "tone and trim" class this summer, and a bellydancing class through community education. I'm looking forward to those, and getting back on track with my exercise routine again!
