Tried on some cars the other day

We had to turn in out lease car last week. I miss it already. It was a Ford Edge. We have decided not to purchase/lease a new vehicle right now, while I am not working. I am kind of bummed about this, but I know it is for the best. We have the F150, plus my MIL signed her Corolla (otherwise known as the ash tray on wheels... boy does it smell) over to Ron. We have 2 vehicle with the Corolla, and it will make things a bit easier financially not having that around $500 a month going out, between the payment, insurance gas etc.

Anyway, while Ron was doing the paperwork at the dealership I was sitting in the model cars on the sales floor. I was soooo amazed at the fact that my belly was not rubbing on the steering wheel. And believe me..... a year ago I could have started a fire with that rubbing!!!! I sat in a Escape and remarked to Ron how spacious it was inside. He said "Last time you sat in one you complained about how small it was inside" It is things like that that really make me realize how far I have come so far.

My mini goal right now is a 25 pound loss. That will take me to 100 pounds lost. I booked our tickets to Michigan leaving on Nov 23. I am really going to try to hit this goal before then.... I'm not sure if I will be able to make it. But if not.... I know I will make it sooner or later.

Finally..... 75 pounds!!!!

Well, I hit 75 pounds lost today. I know it is just a number... but I am still so geeked about it. Now I have to shoot for 100!!! Hopefully it won't take as long. That last 21 pounds took 10 months!!!

Feeling like poopy today. Nausea, pain, headache.... the whole 9 yards. Managed to make a big pot of stuffed cabbage soup today. It smells sooooo good. I will have a bowl of it tomorrow (I'm afraid it will come back up today. Not get stuck, just your run of the mill old fashioned barf ;0 )

Feeling much better now

I went last week for a slight unfill. She took out .25...so, basically half of what the doctor put in. I was afraid for a day or two that it was not enough, since I was still having issues 3 days later. But, luckily they seem to have gone away. I am noticing I have to really really really chew the heck out my food. I have always been fairly good at chewing well... but now I have to make a special effort to chew even more.

I hate to say this for fear of jinxing myself.... but my weight has started to go down a bit now, which is good, since I was getting so beyond frustrated!!!

Other than that, not much to say. So..... Later
