Losing It

Nearly a month later, here I am. Updating.

You would think that the lack of employment would mean some regularity in the blogging department, but alas, I continue to slack. In my defense, I am still taking care of a very mobile 8 month old. And when I AM on the computer, it's usually to job hunt. By the time I've finished perusing postings for positions that require extensive knowledge, experience, a bachelor's degree and oh, hey, can we pay you $9 an hour, I am not so much in the chatty bloggy mood.

But then, the guilts of leaving you all in the dark hit. So here I am.

I admit, I have good tidings to tell. I've lost some weight. More than some, actually.

Can you guess?

THIRTEEN pounds, ya'll. Yes. 13.

This is quite the accomplishment. In all my blogging days, I have never had this significant of a decrease. So, kudos to me. That's right. I am congratulating myself. It's the least I can do. Or the most, I guess, since for me celebrating accomplishments generally involve going out for a nice meal. Neither my wallet nor waistline can afford that, so instead, I'll pat myself on the back.

13 down. 17 to go.

Current Mood: Good!


  1. You are awesome!!!!! That is great you are doing so well with the weight loss. You will find a great job soon. Who could tell you no! :) Keep your head up lady it will happen.

  2. Awww...thanks so much, Kellie! I need you to come here and tell Central Florida why they can't tell me no :)

    Funny, reading this post I had a flashback to our days of listening to Bone Thugs AND Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat in your car. Weird, random, but fun memory.

  3. You lost 13 POUNDS?!! HOLY LORD. I'm so completely totally impressed (and jealous). Way to go!

  4. back-pats and fist-bumps from your amigos in Tucson...S's parents are to have family visit, and 'fun' to know it's a 'visit,' too, eh? ha! S, too, continues with unemployment times...

  5. WAhoo for you! I share Lori's jealousy. Post some pics of you guys soon so we can see how svelte you are! :)

  6. Thanks, peoples. I am not quite "svelte" yet, and still as camera shy as ever. But maybe after the next 17...

    I will, however, post Jonas pictures :)
