Woohoo!!

As you all know I got a new job a little over a month ago. Well, I had been noticing some changes in my body, mostly that it was getting smaller =). So 2 nights ago I weighed myself...I lost 5 lbs! And then I did a scan of myself in the mirror and noticed that I've lost like 5 inches all over! So this motivated me to get up at 6...yes 6 in the morning and go work out. I did it yesterday. Now most of you know I am not a morning person. But 5 inches?! Hello! Of course I owe most of that to my job. They have been making me work so hard...I worked 11 hours 2 days straight last week. And I worked all 7 of those days. All in all I worked about 60-65 hours. So yeah, that'll do it. But hey, it's good money too =). So anyway, because I've been making a real effort in the past few months to lose weight, eat healthier yada yada yada this is a real motivater. Ha, in your face Kimber (j/k, you know I love ya girl!) And you know what the best part about this is? Caleb has definitely noticed (raises eyebrows). And on another happy note, my aunt gave me and Caleb a wedding video that she took. Brings it all back (tears up). And Caleb had his interview with UH fire dept. It went well and they are setting up the second and official interview in a couple of weeks. Yeah, they're making him wait. But I think he'll get it. Please continue to pray for that. And hey, while you're at it since I'm on a roll here, boost my ego! LOL You too Kimber, we'll boost each other up! Happy happy happy...

i'm totally jealous because i have GAINED weight in the last couple of months -- not what you are supposed to do 6 weeks before your wedding!!! my only consulation is that i've been working out, so i know some (or maybe all) of that is muscle :) still, i'd like to see the scale go down!!!

Crystal, my doctor told me to lose weight, so I'm trying, also. It is HARD to drop those pounds. He gave me 3 rules:
1. Don't eat anything really bad (like a big slice of cheesecake)
2. If you are not hungry, don't eat.
3. If you are hungry, think of how much you think you'd like to eat, and just take half.

Sounds simple, but it's not easy and the results are SLOOOOW. I think you have the right idea, have a job where you run your feet off! or is that run your fat off?

Love,
Gramma Geri

how exciting!!! I'm holding my own in weight right now, but with bruised ribs it's really hard to work out like I need to. Hopefully I'll be able to drop a few inches when they get better! :-)
