Update. I'm almost 26 pounds down. YaY!

My stomach is messed up today. I think its because its been messed up everyday for the last two weeks. My 5 year old was sick for three weeks and I've been nothing but worried and I've been tending to him. He finally made it back to school after a shot of penicillin last Friday. He had strep for going on three weeks. He had taken and antibiotic before but I guess it didn't work. We had to give him a shot and he didn't love it but it did the job.

I haven't worked out in three weeks. I really hate that. I miss doing something. I have my gym membership but I don't enjoy it very much. Working on the machines are kind of boring to me. There are so many cool circuit gyms available now. I think I would like working out at one of those or even crossfit but they're still too costly for me. For now I'm pinning exercises on pinterest.

I have had a new job for the past few months. I'm driving for Shipt. Its been great extra money but I miss listing on eBay. I think I may go back to it again soon.

I'm working on cutting back on sugar again. I did well in January but I only lasted about three weeks before it crept back in and then was a daily again. Its so hard when you have food limitations. I would love to replace it with fruit but I have a worse reaction eating fruit than I do having a cookie.

Money wise things are doing ok. Our truck is paid off at the end of April. The car, we hope to pay off in another month or two. Josh got a second promotion at work. He's been promoted to general IT manager. Its a great promotion but I think his former boss, who has taken a lateral promotion to another department wants Josh to fail. For the last week, he has been harassing Josh about all the new responsibilities Josh will have. He won't even let Josh have his old desk. He won't let Josh have his old keys. In fact, he plans to keep them and he still using IT funds to spend money for equipment for his new postition which is in another department. I just think the guy has gotten away with stuff for too long. So now Josh has serious doubts about it. I told him though to accept the challenge and at least try it to see if he really hates it. Why doubt something you haven't tried yet? My husband is a great employee.

Anyway, my next weight loss goal is 5 pounds. I'll let you know when I get there! emoticon

    Congratulations on the weight loss!!

    So sorry to hear about Joey! He must have been really sick.

    I am always fighting sugar. I do not buy it and do well when I eat whole foods but it is in almost everything processed. I do well for a while and then get stressed and busy and then the processed food reappears.

    Hopefully his old boss will move on soon and he can assume his new position without interference.

    Good luck with your goal!

    You are doing great! As far as your DH is concerned, maybe he should go up the ladder to his new boss or if that hasn't changed, to the next level up. Just for confirmation that this is the right way to do it and emphasize he is not being a tattle tail.
