So, as many of you know, I hit a pretty bad depression last winter, and part of my way of dealing with depression is eating. I put on 20 pounds during my depression...20 pounds I really didn't need to be carrying.

As of this week, I'm back down to where I was before my life collapsed and the depression hit. I've lost most of that 20 pounds within the last month. Under 250 again, and dropping.

I still have a long way to go, but at least it is a start. Here's hoping that by summer I'm needing to make all new garb!

Weight loss

Oh! I almost forgot! More good news! As of today, I am officially down 15 pounds from when I seriously started trying to lose weight, and that is with Thanksgiving in there!

Yeah, I'm happy. Have big goals to work towards, and a date to keep.

Amber,

You are what you are. What will be, will be.

*deep breath....let it out*

Repeat as often as necessary.

Love you,

Yourself

Cut for thoughts on weight loss that might be triggering. )

Mom has generously offered to pay my gym membership as long as I keep going steadily, and even said she'd consider paying for plastic surgery after I lose the weight, if I need it. Something to think about. Hopefully won't be necessary, but good to know I have options.

*******************************************

Communication and honesty are good things. Just saying. There's a kind of freedom with being able to talk to people honestly and know they are still going to like you afterwards, that they aren't going to get mad or hold it against you, that they are going to listen and say, "I hear you and I understand."

I'm a blessed girl in this respect.

******************************************

Post later this evening with final(ish) plans for Saturday night. Look forward to seeing many of you this weekend!

Scale reads under 250 for the first time in a long damn time!!!!!

YEAH!!!

I'll be back up at the gym today, swimming laps. I'm going to alternate swimming and walking for now, as I like both of them. First, some house cleaning, then gym time, baby!

I'm inordinately proud of this baby step, truly.

It has been six days since I had my ears stapled.

I have lost 4.5 pounds. In six days. And that during the time of month when I am usually retaining water and pigging out on chocolate.

I'd say it is working.

I really do plan to get some pictures of my ears and post them on here, but I've been busygirl at work.
Switched around work schedule so I could take kidling to his best friend's birthday party this weekend. Of course, another child in his class is having his party at the same place at the same time. This means there will be around forty first graders at the bowling alley at the same time, and that is a conservative estimate.

Yipes.

Smog and I, on the other hand, have decided to go a more sophisticated route for his party. I allowed him to invite three friends, and we are going out to dinner and a movie, specifically Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Works better, since his actual birthday falls on the day before Thanksgiving this year, and no one would come to a party then.

Pray for me, and send me patient energy and good thoughts this Saturday around 1:00-3:00 Central Time. I shall be in desperate need.

Join me now as Bob ventures into the fascinating world of:

Ear stapling.


That's right. I had my ears stapled yesterday. What, you may ask, is ear stapling?

for more info.

So.

Is it working?

Well, in a word, yes.

I had to make myself eat last night and tonight, because I just wasn't hungry. My stomach didn't feel empty, my tummy didn't rumble. I finally ate last night and tonight because I was starting to get a headache, but instead of being hungry when I saw food or eating quickly, I had to convince myself that it was necessary to eat, and even then I foound it difficult to finish my Lean Cuisine.


Stay tuned for further episodes, and here's hoping it continues to work!
