It's certainly been a while since my last post...I don't really have a good excuse other than I've been pretty busy - and have nothing really witty to say :o)
So far - I have gone to two of the Weight Loss Classes and for the most part, I gotta say - I feel I am so much further ahead than everyone else - both mentally and physically. I've also done a lot of people watching (one of my most beloved things to do) and have actually named a couple of people in my class already (they actually don't know I've named them.)
First of all - there's Bitter Woman...she sits beside me on my right...she is angry at the world and thinks everyone owes her because she is fat. This drives me nuts I gotta say...whenever I am put in a group with her, she snarls out one word answers and the eye rolling is a bonus.
Second - is Big Mac Woman...she sat beside me last week and proceeded to tell me her whole life story. Now after a full day of work, this is probably the LAST thing really want to be happening. I eventually tuned her out until she poked me in the arm - she had written a note to me that said " After the meeting, how about we head to McDonald's for a Big Mac? I'm gonna have two!" I looked at her as if to say: ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME???!! This is how you got that way! lol I couldn't even fathom eating a Big Mac right now - I never really liked them to begin with and won't be wanting them in the future.
Oh and don't forget Nosey Woman...she's the one that weighed herself and then announced to the whole room that she had lost seven pounds. When she got to me and asked me how much I had lost, I pretty much told her it was none of her business. I have a thing about privacy and trust - and will only tell people stuff about me when I feel comfortable.
So far by the way...I have lost 3.6 lbs in two weeks. I know I can do better, but it is a start. Ben has kicked up my workouts a notch the past couple days since he has been back so I'm sure the scale will be better this Tuesday.
I also found out a couple of weeks ago, that I will be moving over to the Rockyview Hospital in September. I got the position I applied for back a few weeks back. It will be much closer to home and I am looking forward to it.
So that's my life in a nutshell at the moment...lots of gym time, lots of class time, but most of all...ME TIME...
