I've been crazy busy at work!
Keeping the diet going, but the tracking has been a little patchy, just because I haven't been taking the time. I've been tired and in pain--so I've been watching my eating, but not tracking. I know, I know...
I weighed in a day early (on Monday), not expecting much, and I'm 3lb down! Yay water weight! :-)

My goal is 140 by my birthday in July...totally attainable, even with my broken foot/ankle and the limited cardio and general working out that I can do. I want to be able to feel comfortable wearing shorts and tank tops and other small clothing I've generally avoided for most of my life. I live in Florida, now--the summers here get HOT! I need to be able to wear small clothing and not feel utterly bare and unattractive! The only thing that's going to make that happen is weight loss and toning up. It's past time I took this in hand and got to this point in my life--it's something I've wanted for as long as I remember: to be comfortable in my own skin, to be able to do something as simple as wear shorts.
And this is the first time in my life that I've felt that to be something within my grasp. It's an amazing, empowering feeling!

I've also been applying for bank jobs--I miss my industry. :-)
