Well, after a long hiatus, I am back on my diet. I started tracking again on Livestrong.com, and after three weeks, I am at the weight I was when I last used their fitness tracking program. When K heard I was going on a diet, she jumped on the bandwagon. She is a "me too" kind of person and always wants to do whatever anyone else is doing. I swear, she is part lemming...
My goal is to get below 200 pounds by the first of the year, and never have to see a "2" in front of my weight again. It is a very attainable goal, and I have got to do it--my health depends on it. I have a mother and a brother with diabetes, and I don't want to go there...
The lack of a job is really starting to get me down. We are so strapped financially right now, and the friggin' SUV we just got has been in the shop 3 TIMES. Grrrrrrrrrrr, don't get me started on that one. I think all the major kinks have been taken care of now, so hopefully (knocking on wood like a mad woman) it is good to go for the winter months. It is a V-8 and a 4x4, so you know the gas mileage sucks. But we should be able to put at least another 150,000 miles on the engine!
I just know something good is going to happen soon. We have a shut off notice on the electric, cable has already been shut off, and we don't have a dime for fuel oil. When you hit bottom, there is no way to go but up, right? Upward, ho--except my weight--that can continue to drop for a good long while.
