School is over for the term, as of yesterday. But I was hired by the Navy to write 6 videos aimed at middle and high school kids. That's what I'm suppose to be working on right now actually. I've also got grad school applications due at the end of the month. It's been a really rough time right now.
And it's terrible, but I'm thrilled that the new medication my doctor put me on has a side effect of decreased appetite. I mean, that's not why I'm taking it, but I'm all about nice side effects, if I'm going to have any at all.
Oh! As of this morning, I'm down 55 pounds. How awesome is that? I only weight 235 pounds. This is awesome. I'm so motivated. I'm about 90 pounds away from goal. It's a long road, but this has been so totally worth it.
And I've set myself a new mini-goal. In mid-January, I'm going to visit my Aunt and cousins in Chicago. I was there at the end of June, when I was still a little over 20 pounds heavier. I want to look good when I go out there.
I've also got a wedding to go to the weekend before that trip, so I really want to look good. And I'd LOVE to be in high 220's for that wedding.
Speaking of the wedding, Kate, the bride to be, and I are going to start going to the gym after the wedding. I have no motivation to go by myself, but with a friend, I think I might. Right now, I'm still just walking a lot. And I know that my weight loss would be even better if I got motivated and exercised.
I think I'm going to go do some Wii Fit now. I need to use it more. My excuses are running out - I'm home more now, and my room is clean enough that I have space for the Wii Fit. Here goes nothing!
