Good morning, ladies! Here we go again, another Monday... Gosh, it's been so long since I posted, I hope I can remember how.
I guess I'll start by updating you on what's going on here. Let's see, big happenings over the last year. I got a promotion in May and bought a house in October, those are the biggest things. I'm currently at my highest weight ever, a weight that I won't reveal until I've lost a little bit. Let's just say it's a lot.
I'm still single, and am currently trying the online dating thing. I've met a few really nice people, and of course a few strange ones.
That's the biggest news.
Over the last year or so, I tried Jenny Craig. I lost like 10 lbs, but it was SO expensive for a single gal. I also tried the Slim Fast diet, which I actually liked--they have a website where you can get personalized meal plans and stuff, and you actually get to eat more than just their shakes, which is cool. It's pretty convenient, but I missed certain things about WW (specifically, my air-popped popcorn every night and the flexibility).
My experimentation with different programs taught me a couple of things: It's impossible for me to eat right if I don't have a plan. And it's pointless to have a plan if I don't stick with it. I HAVE managed to overcome the all-or-nothing mentality that I used to have, so I feel pretty good about that.
Anyway, enough about me, it looks like there have been some major changes for many of you over the last couple of years so hopefully I can get all caught up!
Lori--What kind of work do you do? The traveling part sounds way glamorous, but the water mites, yucky mess, and tiny store do not. It's good that you have a plan for what you're going to eat while you're there--is there any way that you can take stuff of your own that you may not be able to get there? It's good that the trip is fairly short, hang in there!
