Checking In

Hi All!  I am still teetering between 320 - 325.  I can't seem to nudge past those numbers.  I am doing what I can and am still making small changes and accommodations to stay on track.  I won't lie, there have been days where I crashed and burned and days where I actually caught those curve balls and threw them back, which I am super proud of, by the way :) 

I am still seeing the occupational therapist, which has been great. I have several session recaps to post for you, but it really is helping. She doesn't give me the opportunity to make excuses.  She always comes up with a solution to my roadblocks and holds me accountable.  I love that we are getting into the WHY of everything... my cravings, my stress, my fatigue, etc.  and coming up with reasonable solutions to help combat those issues.  Not each one worked, but at least I try and then we figure out an alternative process. 

I am thinking about going back to school.  As if I don't have enough going on now.  LOL!  My boss and I have talked about it and she is willing to help me schedule work around a part time school schedule.  I need to complete that step, so I have more confidence and comfort in my future.  I really don't know how I will manage, but I will.  I always seem to find a way.

I have about 845 unread blog posts.  Please forgive me for not keeping up and commenting.  I have been reading when I can.  I am out there and supporting you all, but in my thoughts.  I look forward to catching up more and seeing where life has taken you the last few weeks.

Same old story

Feels like I start a lot of these messages with the same line... "Sorry I have been MIA lately.", but it is true.  I am so busy with work, home, weight loss, that unfortunately, this blog becomes a low priority.  I will give a full report in the next few days, but things have been going well.  I am still losing and I finally have the Body Bugg back and working.  I can't wait to share with you the stats I recorded during my last trip to Disneyland.  I also miss reading everyone's blog.  I can't wait to catch up to see how you all are doing.
