Hello Again Everyone

Hey everyone,

Sorry it's been half a year since I've posted anything. I've been distracted with a whole lot of stuff. This post is basically going to be a mish-mosh of what I've been up to.

My best friend finally got her license AND a job, but she has constantly nit-picked on how much she does not like my hair style and how I'm watching my weight. I finally had to tell her to keep her negative statements to herself. And when I try to be the brutally honest and loyal friend I am, she ignores or tunes out advice I and her mom give.

26 Degrees And More Doubts About My Friend

Hey everyone,

It's been awhile! I had a great Thanksgiving and Christmas. Though my haul was small this year I loved every present I got. And though it's known to everyone in the States, for those who don't know, it'sFREEZING! Though it's not NEAR as frigid as the North, we woke up to 26 degrees! It's supposed to be even colder tomorrow morning!

And I'm doubting my friendship again. My friend is looking for a job, but she exudes the attitude that she doesn't WANT a job. And every time her mother wants a day in the house by herself, I'm always the first thing she thinks of.

This Past Year

Hey,

The last couple of days I've been thinking about what I've done with my life this year. I have come to the conclusion that November 2012- November 2013 is the year where I have changed the most. This past year I've:

Lost 39 pounds
Changed my diet drastically
Improved my attitude and perception of the world
Got off my blood pressure medicine (one less medicine to take)
Been more aware of how my best friend really treats me

Those five items alone are reason for me to celebrate. I am still unhappy with a few things in my life, but most of those are things that I cannot control.

Sometimes I Don't Know Why We're Still Friends

Hey,

I'm friends with a girl who, for the most part, is a decent friend. We've known each other for years, but sometimes I wonder why we're friends or why I'm still her friend. She is only a few months behind me in age and only JUST got her drivers license, doesn't have a job yet and has some of the worst habits I know a person to have. And even though she has ADD and dyslexia, she spells worse than a typical person with dyslexia and has the handwriting of a 4 year old. She acts 3 instead of 23 sometimes and it seems to me that we get into more petty debates in the past year.

Yoga Is The Coolest Low Impact Exercise EVER!

Hey!

I know I've been going on and on about my weight loss. Now I will take a break from yapping about my weight number and talk about how I picked up yoga a month ago and how much I love it! And now it helps me control my food cravings!

I'm not trying to shove it on anyone, but it can help with SO MANY things that we use drugs for (in conjunction with your physician's counseling) ! Fibromyalgia, arthritis, general pain, overweight issues, runner aches, laziness, anxiety and mental disorders and a WHOLE lot more!

Another Update on my Progress

Hey,

I have another update on my weight loss progress! As of last week (or the week before), I have lost 33 pounds in one year! I am so proud of myself. I find it hard to believe how much better I look and how much better I feel!

What I was like before last August:
- nearing 190 lbs
- looked like a jumbo marshmallow
- hated exercising and the gym
- couldn't do jack sh*t as far as crunches and sit ups go
- could never get the motivation to start losing weight
- jealous of fitter kids in school (especially high school)
- total couch potato
- ate seconds of everything
- drank very little water

Green Tea and Gym Workouts

Hey,

I just wanted to let y'all know what's been going on in my world of losing weight and getting in better shape.

My mom has been away this summer babu sitting my nephew and niece and gave my dad an ultimatum. Either use the gym membership or we're cancelling it when I get home. So, he started going to the gym. We talk to her almost every day, so we can tell her all what we did in the last day. I got to talking with her about being stuck in between 157 and 158, so she made a suggestion.

"Why don't you start going to the gym with your dad?"

So, last Monday was my first trip with him.

Well, It's Been A Couple Months

Hey,

Sorry I've been absent for quite awhile. When last I posted, I put up pictures. Since Pedernales Falls was three months ago, I am no longer 171. As of Sunday morning, I was 157! 14 more pounds! I'm now fighting between 157 and 158, so I've gotta up my game again...

My dad found an awesome workout app almost three weeks ago the morning I left for Canyon Lake and man did it work! I weighed myself that morning and I was 160. I usually get a little out of control as far as food intake goes there, but since I was able to jog my way up the incline this time(and believe me.

Pictures Then And Now

Hey!

I figured with all my talk about my weight loss I'd give y'all an idea of how bad I was and a rough estimate of myself right now (though I've lost a few since last month). The first picture is of me in Berlin, Germany in May of 2009 (Fancy that, the same month we're in right now). That was at my heaviest- shy of 200.

The second one is of me at Pedernales Falls State Park in Johnson City, Texas last month. That is me at around 171. I wish I had a picture from this month, but I haven't taken any worthy of the Internet. I just figured some of you might be curious as to the difference.
