No longer obese!!

leave a comment »

I will admit, my weight loss has been slow. But, I’ve still lost 40 pounds.

My current weight is 197. To me this is very exciting becuase I can’t remember the last time I was at this weight, or I guess I do but not since some crazy year like 2002.

The exciting news for me is my BMI is 29.8. I am now considered to be overweight! I’m not longer considered to be obese! I’m excited because it was a small goal I was looking towards and I made it!

A new season of The Biggest Loser has started. I was really into this show when it first started, but haven’t watched in few seasons. I’m excited to watch this season, I’m also hoping it will help keep me extra motivated this fall/winter. I’ve watched the fisrt episode already, and plan to watch the second this weekend. There are 2 things I dislike about the show though… and they are that it gives people the idea that losing 15 pounds a week is where its at and all the crazy yelling Jillian does.

As hard as losing weight is and can be, it is 110% worth it. I feel fantastic! I can walk 6 miles straight. I can wear cuter clothes. People flirt with me more. I’m more flexible. I can squeeze into smaller places. I weigh almost 50lbs less than my spousual unit. I’m probably adding years to my life. It may cost $40 a month to do Weight Watchers but I’m sticking to this for life.. the rest of it.

Beer wench? Yes.

Although today was such a drain…

I mean I went to my personal little heaven, aka Target, and was to tired to enjoy it.

… one of the better moments was when a customer asked if I was the “beer wench?”

And I gladly replied, yes I am!

Farewell.

leave a comment »

Today I was told that a great employee has left our store.

I can’t believe how distraught I am over this. I can’t believe I’ve shed tears over it. But I can believe it, too.

This person was such a back bone to our crappy little store for almost 2 years.

Good bye Montreux or Montague. You’ll be missed by so many. I do hope you keep in touch.  I hope your next adventure in life is a great one.

Too much of a good thing.

Eeep.

So this weekend I drank to much. I vow never to drink that much in one day again.  EVAR. It’s a few days later and I can tell my body is still unhappy.

Happy September 1st!

I think our wonderful and strange Seattle summer is wrapping itself up. A second ago, it was pouring down rain!

I’m happy for fall!

I’ll go find my scarf if someone will pour me a porter!
