Quick update...

Okay, so Lose 10 in 10 is over. I lost about 1-2 lbs right before we started it and about 4-5 lbs during it. I've managed to keep it off, for the most part, I fluctuate between 1-2 lbs every day, up or down. It's annoying. I am officially in the middle of the Lap Band process through the Weight Loss Clinic in Harrisburg. I just had my 3rd nutritionist appointment, should finish those by August. I go for my Psychological Evaluation on June 6th, should be interesting, for some reason, I'm nervous about that. I don't think it's hit me yet that come Sept/Oct, I'm going under the knife for an elective surgery to alter my life. I'm ready, just a bit nervous. Haven't been doing the best with eating or exercising. I get in slumps sometimes. I was doing great for a while there, I hit a slump the last 2 weeks. But I'm back on track, been going to the gym at least 3x a week on average, sometimes more, I've been eating better, as far as portions and snacks. I sometimes find it hard, or I don't 'notice' that I don't include veggies at dinner or I grab chex mix/pop tarts for snacks instead of apples/ect. I HAVE to find a happy medium for myself, and stop making excuses. That's why, I really appreciate that Highmark makes you go through the 6 month pre-op stuff. It gives you time to really focus on you, your issues and try and correct those before you get your surgery.

So, things at work have been crazy, not so much for myself, but for Brian. Workers Comp is a big ole mess. And I know he's stressed and feeling overwhelmed and I feel helpless. I love my job, I can honestly say that, it can be boring or repetitive at times, but it's a job and I enjoy the majority of those around me. It's not necessarily what I want to do with my life, but it's good for now.

I finally located paper copies of my articles from HACC that I wrote, wish newspapers/ect would hire me, whether it's freelance or not. Always want experience, while I don't have A LOT of experience, I have heart and a drive and I would really enjoy it.

I honestly feel like eating/dieting/weight/ect is consuming me, I try not to focus on it all day long, but I'm constantly thinking about what to eat/when to eat/how much/where. I guess in the long run, it'll be good for me.

I've been tanning for about a week now, I LOVE it. I forgot just how much I enjoy it. I know, I know, it's not good for you, ect ect. Oh well.

Well, until next time...
