Today was my first Weight Watchers meeting, thus my first "official" weigh-in. From last week when I started online to the meeting today I'm down 7.8lbs!!!!!! I definitely was not expecting a number that high, it was a pleasant surprise for sure. Especially considering that I pigged out just a tad and used my extra points on Texas Roadhouse. Their rolls are evilly delicious.

I also celebrated this accomplishment today by PIGGING OUT on Sconecutter. Why? Because I was hungry of course. But more so, it sounds like my beloved Utah original fast food scone shop is going out of business. I just had to say goodbye.

I'm still within my points, so that's good. I'm just not up on all my healthy checks for the day. That's alright, tomorrow is another day. Today is not shot, it was fine. I stayed within my points, didn't go overboard, and I'm satisfied. I figure one "cheat" day a week is alright, and I hope that eventually I'll get to the point where I don't want to cheat and undo all the good I did.

7.8, that's so awesome!

Today was a fun filled day in the ER. My period, or whatever this monstrosity is now, just won't stop. They couldn't find anything either, except for one small cyst on my right ovary. Now they don't think it's PCOS, but they have no idea what it might be, besides stress from the stupid panic attacks I've decided to start having. Blech.

Besides that nonsense, the Weight Watchers is going good. I haven't been to a meeting yet, I go Thursday, but I joined officially on line last Thursday. The website is way too handy, I couldn't go without it so I had to buckle down and join.

My coworker has so fair lost 17 pounds in a little over a month, so that's very encouraging. Foodwise I'm doing great, I just need to get the excercise in. My 3 month long bleeding extravaganza however is not conducive to excercise, and it has also made me anemic which doesn't help with me being fatiqued all the time. Getting up and moving is just about the LAST thing I want to do besides attend a Miley Cyrus concert.

Hopefully things will start getting better though, I know once I start excercising I'm usually pretty good at sticking with it.

Now off to bed at the geriatric hour at 0700 pm so I can be to work by 0430 am. Lose, lose.

I'm Back!!!!!

Did you miss me?
Holy long time no blog Batman!!!

So, what have I been doing in the last year and so odd months?

Why, I've been GAINING 15 POUNDS!!!!
Ugh. Blech. Blah. Gah. Mmph. Glah. Tittieboozle.
This last year has been, horrible to say the least.

1st, the boy is an idiot. 2nd, I have a health scare. 3rd, I have a panic attack. 4th, the panic attack leads to an onset of generalized anxiety disorder with panic disorder and the Pure O form of OCD. 5th, I'm moving back home with the parents, and 6th, I may or may not now have POCS and I've been on a continuous period for 3 months. TMI? Perhaps, but that's okay. I'm an open book.

Life, will you PLEASE stop taking a big stinky dump all over me? Just for a second?

So I'm at 290 now, which is horrible and depressing. But, I'm not going to be at that weight for long. I'm going to do Weight Watchers again.....well actually I'm going to pretend I'm doing Weight Watchers. At this point in time I don't have the money to pay for the meetings and whatnot, but two wonderful ladies at my work are going and they've decided that we'll have our own weekly meeting after they go to their regular meeting. That sure is nice of them. We have a scale and everything in the office so I can even weigh in, and my boss will be monitoring so that's even more motivation to get this done.

The beginning of the year, like every year, I was MOTIVATED with a capital GUNG-HO to start my weight loss, then Panic Attack 2010 reared it's ugly little head and I was basically bed ridden for 3 months. Not really, but I sure wanted to be. Anxiety and panic run in my family, my mom and sister both have it, as do many aunts and cousins, but I was hoping I dodged the bullet. I didn't though. Sad day.

So I've been dealing with that nonsense, trying not to lose my mind. It's getting better though, and one good thing that came from it was I finally kicked my forever long soda habit. No more caffeine for me!!!

So I'm back to give this weight loss thing another try. Not a try, a do. Because I'm going to do it.
