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

BEFORE: Me in the 270s, at my heaviest

AFTER: Me at around 208-209lbs getting read for work
 I know all of you are doing great things out there! I have been reading!! Keep up the GREAT work and as always lets shed those extra pounds together!!



  1. Looking great Mishkie! Love ya!

  2. Look at you hottie! Can't wait to see you so please get your butt out here~!

  3. you look so great! :)

  4. You look beautiful and have made great progress already. It sounds like you have a good plan for getting things moving again too so I'm sure you'll see some action there soon.

    We have a thing of candy at work too. I decided a couple of years ago that I don't really like that kind of candy. I would much rather have a serving of really good chocolate than handfuls and handfuls of M&M's. It makes it easier to tell myself no when I can plan to have a special treat of something I really want a couple of times a week.

  5. Hooray!!! You look fantastic! I know you probably don't want to hear this, but I think you've hit a wall. You're gonna have to start exercising more! You'll get there soon baby! Keep up the awesome work!
