Catching Up !!
Jun 24, 2009Well, I haven't been on in a while so thought I would catch you up on what I have been doing:
College - After taking some time off to have a life, kids, and get married I decided after loosing over 150lbs that I wanted to make a change in my life for the better so I decided to start college again this summer. Let me tell you, man this was a lot easier when I was younger. I am not used to staying up studying all night till the late hours and then getting up the next day at the crack of dawn and getting ready to go to work! That I must say has been the biggest challenge for me as of late! I am however making an A so far in all THREE classes so that is good.... After goofing off before when I was younger in school I need those A's to boost a REALLY LOW GPA !!!!
Weight Loss -- It has really slowed down these last couple of months. I am still averaging about 8-10lbs a month loss, but it simply just isn't falling off like before. Now I am really having to work at it. I started over this week back to the basiscs and I am tracking my protein and water and vitamin intake religiously so that I can see the difference and get remotivated. I haven't been to a support group in two months and that will change in July. I need them to stay motivated and get back on track. I am so close to my first goal which was a weight loss of 200lbs (Double Century Club) and I know that I can do it. I am only about 23lbs away and then my ultimate goal after that will be to loose another 20lbs and then I will complete my journey and start scraping and saving every penny I can for plastics -- at least on my arms if nothing else.
Kids are doing great and enjoying the summer. I am hoping to get to take them to Fiesta Texas in San Antonio to see an old friend in July but we will see how the budget holds out! Matthew is getting braces so that might put the kybosh on going on another trip this summer, but who really knows!
