Sunday, September 21, 2008


Well, I finally lost weight again. 1.2 lbs this week to be exact! Now, I really have no idea how that may have happened because I don't think I kept very good track of my extra points...but still, I'm not arguing.

In other news, I had a very busy week! Wednesday I went to the Cubs game with my mom and David
We had a lot of fun, and I ate waaaay too many peanuts. Thursday was exciting as well when Adam decided that it would be a good idea to put me on his auto insurance plan. Not only is it saving me money, but it's exciting to have more things combined.

Yesterday, we met with a wedding planner, then spent the afternoon tooling around Oakbrook while we killed time before dinner. The moms finally met last night!!! We had a really good time, and everyone seemed happy. Now, I'm just killing time on a lazy sunday while I figure out what to do with myself today...

I'm sick of it

I've decided that I'm really and truly sick and tired of having to work SO HARD at this whole weight loss thing. I watch some of my friends who have a "healthy" relationship with food decide they want something, eat a small portion of it, and then be done.

Wheres my switch like that? Why do I have to consume EVERYTHING thats put in front of me? Why do I LOATHE exercise?

damn genetics...
