AT WORK FOR 11 HOURS. on October 11, 2008 8:36 pm
I just wanted to tell you a little bit about how my first week of work went,
One of my co-workers is out on vacation, and he starts work before me, so that means I got to to start at the time he usually does, which is six thirthy in the morning (pacific time), and I still have to stay as late as I usually do, which is five thirty in the aafternoon (pacific time).
you do the math.
It was very hard to go back and work all those hours after not working any hours at home. exept for cleaning and exercising. (which is not the same)
My co -worker will be out for 2 more weeks, so that means I got to step up to the plate again.
My boss told me that they want to give an office job cuz Im 1 of the smartests in the group hahahahahaahahahaha.
Im happy about that but at the same time Im kind of down about it, because I love to drive and I have been doing it for 10 years, and my riders love me and I love them, and I will defenetelly miss them, and I know they will miss me, (Im really good friends with all of them) I hope I wont be bored inside the office all day,
my hours will probably be from 8:30 am to 6;30 pm which will suck balls real hard because I got 2 kids and Im involved in their activities, soccer, baseball, t ball, etc etc etc.
please pray for me and all my future plans, and wish me luck, I'll need it!!

MY FIRST DAY OF WORK. on October 6, 2008 10:01 pm
I went back to work today oct 6 2008, I worked 11 hrs, Im a bus driver, so it was hard for me to have to sit in that thing for so long, I have been driving professionally for 10 years, and I have so much fun doing it, but after being at home for 6 weeks (worry free), man its hard to have to work so much!!
We have 10,000 employees at the place I work for so moving so much people around can be lots of fun but it can also be real hard for you If you dont know how to keep your mind occupied.
I work for Lockheed Martin in sunnyvale ca, and we are the ones that build satellites, GPS, and gobernment stuff ( I cant tell you what) please dont ask ).
anyway what im trying to say is, I work with the smartest people on the planet and that's why my job is so awesome and interesting, but like I said before, its just hard to work so many hrs on my first day.
Most of my co-workers were thrilled to see me again, (theres a couple that hate me) (nobody's perfect) LOL.
and I was happy to see them too. ;-)
My passengers hadnt seen me since august 15, and since I was 308 lbs, now I am 268 lbs.so they were surprised to see a whole different person. I lost 40 lbs in 6 weeks and dropped clothes sizes. I was a size 54 in pants Now im a size 46 my shirts were 5 x now theyre 2 x and dress up shirts were size 20 now im 16-18, Im really excited, I saw my doctor last friday and he told me that in 6 months I'll be under 200 lbs,and in 1 year from now I'll be at my goal which is 140 lbs.
I have been eating more stuff now, different kinds of food, and so far everything's been good, No more foam comming out from my belly, "at least for now". yay
I hope it stays that way.
I was laughing so hard today because I have a friend that told me she threw up foam today, and she had never experienced that before, she said it was the weirdest shit she's ever seen , I said thats hard to believe, hahahaha.
Last monday I visited some old friends of mine from high school, and it was great, I also got some phone numbers that belonged to some of my other friends that got lost after marrieage.
it was hard to believe that some of them are living as far as victorville ca, san luis obispo ca, santa maria ca, and even kansas city.
but at least I know now that I can just call and set up a date to see my old friends. ;-)
I havent been doing much except going to the gym for light exercise and doing laps in the swimming pool. but now my doctor gave me the go ahead to start lifting weights again, so im happy about that,
I love lifting, but hate cardio. I want to get ripped like one of my friends on OH da truth (symjor). I hope to look like him in 1 or 2 years. I got nothing but time.
by the way I went to barnes and nobles the other day and I found a book called EATING WELL AFTER WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY, and its great cuz now I dont have to worry about what to eat or what not to eat.
the book authors are Pat Levine and Michele Bontempo- Saray.
you still have to weigh your food though ok, and dont forget to use measuring cups!!.
If you have info on anymore books please let me know, I would like to have a few.

So I got up early to walk my dogs and get used to getting up at five in the morning (pacific time) ;-)

GYM AND WORK. on October 2, 2008 2:45 pm
I went to the gym today, I think I spent like 3 hrs there, I hadnt gone in almost 2 weeks I been lazy!! hehehe.
It felt good going to the gym today I run a mile on the threadmill and then I went to the hot room, I spent like 15 minutes there, then I went to the steam room, I spent 15 minutes there also, then I went to the Jacuzzy, and I spent 15 minutes there, it felt really good!!
at the end I was doing laps Inside the swimming pool,
that felt awesome.
Also, I cant wait do be able to start lifting weights again, I love to lift, but I hate cardio. I was getting muscular 8 years ago when I was lifting a lot but then I got married hahahahahahaaaha all that muscle went away, no more gym only work and family, work and family. (and food).
I have a friend that told me she runs, and does tae bo, to tell you the truth I got jellous because I hadn't been to the gym in almost 2 weeks, I know, I know Im bad, but now im back on track, and since I start work again on monday, I think I' ll go to the gym right after work.
by the way, I just found out Im scheduled to work 11 hrs on monday, THAT'S GOING TO SUCK HARD, Im not sure if Ill be able to handle that,
(Ive been @ home for 6 weeks,) im rusted out! I hope everything goes well.
keep me in your prayers please.

BURGER KING on October 1, 2008 10:37 am
Last monday I went to visit my brother and his wife, and some old high school buddies of mine.
In the morning I had oatmeal for breakfast made with enriched milk,
"3 cups of fat free milk mixed with 1 cup powder milk"
For lunch I had yell-o and water,
and for dinner I had Burger king,
hahahahaaha NO I didnt have junk food for dinner!!! I bought the grilled chicken sandwich, just the sandwich, no mayo ( I had problems with mayo before)because it has eggs in it, so far I can't eat eggs, (I'll try egg beaters)
so I bought the sandwich took the chicken out and ate it . its was about 3 oz "maybe" of chicken, and it was fresh, it took forever to cook hahaha.
it was delicious, Remember we all need to have that protein!!
My doctor wants me to do the 4 by 4 thing, (eat 4oz of food, 4 times a day)
but you have to understand, theres gonna be situations where its gonna be imposible to do that. eating only 3 times a day wont kill you.
some people eat 5 or 6 times a day, But I cant do that, Im just not hungry hahahahha. I guess that's a good thing. hahaha.
