My complaining paid off..

Okay so I know I was completely complaining this morning about the scale not moving at all...BUT I have to tell you guys, this morning I weighed myself on my scale at home with the clothes on that I was going to go to the doctors office in and I weighed in at 209.6lbs...well my appointment wasn't until 1pm and I usually go  to my appointments in the early morning because I don't like to eat or drink before my appointment...well I probably didn't do a very good thing by not eating or drinking anything until my appointment today but it paid off! I got the doctor and weighed in at 207.0lbs...FINALLY I get to my 207...almost to ONEderland!! I know it was accurte because I also weighed myself again on my scale before I left home so its not at all that the scales are scale is accurate with my doctors that would be 72lbs lost ;o) SO excited!!

Also I have to say, Thank you so much for all of your positive and truely inspiring comments!! It means so much to me and I thank you all so much for your support through this journey!! Keep up the great work out there!!


Im still here...haha

Hey everyone!

I know I haven't blogged in a while, I have just been so busy with my new job and doing school work, that I just feel like there aren't enough hours in the day! Anyways, I wanted to come on here this morning and give you all a little update on everything.

The new job is going great, I truely love what I am doing and I really enjoy the people I work with!! I just feel like the environment is not stressful and I am very comfortable talking to everyone and we have a good time at work and are able to get work done, so its just a really great work environment and very stress free!! However there is temptation in the nursing office (which is where I work of course) So we have a very large candy dispenser in our office that you pretty much hold your hand in front of and it releases whatever is in it...everyone is really good about keeping it full...not so good for me right? lol its usually full of M & Ms and skittles...however, I am really good about not falling for the temptatation and thats why I usually keep something to drink handy. I am actually proud of myself for not giving in and just taking a handful of M & Ms when we have people coming into our office CONSTANTLY getting candy!

Ok so I have been a bit frustrated lately regarding my weight. I feel like I have been working so hard and keeping on track with my diet and my work outs and I am not seeing the numbers on the scale that I would like to be seeing. I feel like I have been fighting just to keep my weight maintained and thats not what I want. I want the numbers to go lower. So I have been hanging around 208 and 209 for quite a while now and I have yet to see 207. I am almost to ONEderland but I feel like every time I get on the scale I am further and further away. SO frustrating!

So today I have a doctors appointment and I haven't had a fill in quite a while, so I was thinking this past month has been really tough for me and I really think its time for a small fill and tighten things up a bit.

I am going to remain on track with what I am doing, and hopefully I will begin to see the numbers drop a bit and hopefully I can hit ONEderland soon :o) It will be my first major goal hit since my surgery. I am very excited and I know I promised you all new photos so here ya go...enjoy
