I can’t believe I have not been here to post for a while, July 30th was my last one. So much for blogging continually through out my journey. Lol. Well I am happy to say even though my blogging has taken a back seat, my weight loss has not. I am down 23 pounds and look forward to tomorrows way in. I have been able to say no in some icky situations and stay on track. Even though it stinks to say no to going out to eat with friends and family, I know it will be well worth it in the end. Yes I would love to have more pounds off, but I also know it didn’t go on over night. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. I am working on a weight loss bucket list, hoping that and the poster I want to put together will keep me going. There have been a few days I’ve wanted to throw in the towel, but luckily I have great support and there are so many people who are motivating so it keeps me on track and I don’t feel so alone. I just keep envisioning the day I can look back at what I accomplished and be so proud that I did it, I am going to be a healthier person and enjoy living instead of watching it pass by. To be able to step off the plane and see my friends and show myself off 😉 I am not one that likes to be the center, but with this I am so excited to show off. If I can help inspire someone else to lose weight that would be a great feeling. Help others as I have been helped by so many amazing people.
Since I have not posted for a while, I also can say that I am working again!! Yahoo. Feels so amazing to be collecting a pay check and feel like part of life again. I may not like getting up at 5 am, but it is worth it once I get to work. I didn’t get the position I wanted, but I am at the facility I wanted. It is an assisted living facility and I have enjoyed it. There have been a few bumps in the learning curve, but I just try to laugh at it and say I am that much more prepared. 🙂 The residents are great, they are so adorable. It is funny how some of them do remind me of working with kids. I love just talking to them and listening to their stories. They have helped me realize that life is short and you got to make it count.
I try on days off to go to a new place, or to a place where I haven’t been in a long time. Rediscovering this wonderful state of Maine that I took for granted. I should have gone today since it was a beautiful fall day, but I did some cleaning and relaxing. This morning I got up early and headed out to Fort Williams for sunrise. So beautiful and peaceful! I downloaded the pictures from today and a trip my mom and I took the other day. There were a couple of pictures that I was quite surprised with how they came out, so beautiful. I look forward to taking a class and brushing up on my photos. I would love to do that as a very small side thing. There is something about being behind the camera I love.
Well I must go continue to work on the things I want to finish so I can get back to enjoying the outside before winter comes. To posting more blogs on this journey and to an amazing weigh in tomorrow morning. Cheers.
