Default Update (long)

Alright girls here's the scoop... (some info I've already mentioned)

Job: The great job I got didn't work out, but I got a new job the same week I quit at another training studio (the one my fiance works at actually) and I really like it, and there's no question that it's going to work out! It's less money, but I actually get paid when I am there unlike the other one. They expected me to be there 40 hours a week and only get paid for the clients I had booked, which worked out to about 5 hours a week. So on the job front things are good. Although this new job is a personal training job and not a nutritionist job, I am relieved because although I am going to school for nutrition I don't think I am ready yet to work in the field because I still have a lot to learn.

Wedding: It's only like 9 weeks away now (eeekkkk). I picked up my dress on Saturday, and to my pleasant surprise it fit (for those who didn't know I ordered a 12 although when I tried it on it didn't fit, the 14 was enormous, so I chanced it!). I absolutely love love love it!

Diet/Exercise Etc.: Ug! As some of you know I had been struggling with purging (hard to talk about). I lost about a good 6 pounds in just a few weeks by doing this and practically starving myself. Well the last few weeks I have been eating out of control and of course have gained back all the weight I lost doing things the wrong way. I know that that is the reason it came back so fast because when I took about 2 months off from mid December to the end of February (no working out and eating just as bad as the last few weeks) I only gained at most 3 pounds which came off right away because I had lost weight the right way before then. Anyway, I resolve that I am going to stop this crap starting today. I have to workout at work because I will be eligible for a raise once I finish the first 2 programs they have there, so my strength training is covered (and I get to workout on the clock), so I just have to get cardio in. I am not going to do this crap anymore, I have come to far to start treating my body badly. I am still smoking, which now is going to be the hardest thing to stop out of all the other habits I have gotten into.

Anyway, sorry this is so long, I just had to get that all off my chest. I miss being involved in the boards! It's helped me so much along my journey and I hope to be back on a lot more!

Hello, I'm glad you are doing better, and thank you for sharing. I'm glad you are back!

ps. the smoking thing aint a big deal.. you can do it! I quit after ten years!-the gum helped me! but I was really ready to quit, I want to be healthy, and I just didn't sound good when I was trying to run...I sounded like an asthmatic. I've been a quitter for over a year now, and I DO NOT miss smoking a bit! YOu'll be there soon! I"m here if you need a smoking quitting buddy!
