PS: whatcha studying in school?
Hey!!!!!!! Thanks for stopping by! Yep, this is my lil part of the world where I get to blabber all I want about whatever Just plodding along and trusting the process, it's all we can do! I have no clue what I wanna be when I grow up!!! I originally started with the intention of business administration but then veered off into criminal justice, nutrition, yada yada yada.......all over the place!! Finally had to admit I don't know wth I'm doing. This semester my classes are weight management, asian history, history of rock & roll, and abnormal psychology... ALL areas that I am absolutely fascinated by. So, I just go to school to go to school until I find something that inspires me to stick with just that one thing..

No winners here. How much fun would it be to go to Vegas like celebrities and do it up big! You've come so far, Amber and you look AMAZING!!!

Ugh, doesn't it suck! Next few weeks will be very telling (and possibly frustrating?) and I'm really bracing myself for gains on the scale...just because that's what history tells me is gonna happen. Not going to stress tho because I have finals coming up and so do not need the extra stress!

Man, I dunno what I would do if I won money like that!

-------------------------------------------------------------

Today I am back down to my low. Really hoping that now the numbers will start dropping lower! It would be nice to get somewhere in the 20's for the month of December. A girl can dream!

UD today. It still cracks me up at how I can have an ultra hungry day on a DD and when the UD rolls around I don't feel hungry at all and have to remind myself to eat. What wild problems to have, eh?

Finding all my Xmas stuff today so we can start decorating. Haven't gotten a tree yet, nobody is selling them yet... Too hot?

Hi Honey! Congrats on hitting your number again!

I'm sure if I won that kind of money I would become vain, shallow and stingy. I'm really glad I have to continue to be the real me.....Vain, shallow and generous....

Hey ladies, thanks for stoppin!

Blonde~ Japanese Friendship Gardens. First time I've ever been. It was for an Asian history project but I'll be back because it was awesome. It only fueled my Japanese obsession even more Fed Koi fish and the ducks and just sat in the sunshine and listened to waterfalls and streams. I did not want to leave!







__________________________________________________ ________

UD today! Had a really long DD yesterday and skipped dinner....I had spent over 4 hrs writing and embedding pics into my history project and somehow I deleted the ENTIRE thing. It was already 10pm..... Needless to say, I was up til after 1am re-doing it to get it turned in early so I didn't have to do it this weekend. I'm and so glad I can eat today!

Goal for December: 236

Dec 1.... 231.0

A truly beautiful place, lucky you!

So glad today is up for you, good heavens, you deserve it. Losing your work and having to start over? What a nightmare. I don't know that I could have tackled it again. You're a superstar!

Gorgeous there, the pics don't even do it justice! Can't even tell you how mad I was about losing my work!! I thought I was gonna pass out from hyperventilating for 10 minutes before I even said anything to DH about it He later told me that he was waiting for me to say forget it and be done but I didn't. Instead, I kept him up with me past 1am

Christine, it was so calming and relaxing. What was amazing was how that feeling carried on throughout the day even after we left. I wish this place wasn't a drive..maybe like 25 min. or so...I'd be there everyday

UD yesterday was so yummy! Had some steak and even a little potato.

DD today and I'm ready!

Scale was tellin me it did not like what I had for dinner. Or.... maybe it was the serving of nachos I had

All is well, it'll be gone soon!

Ended Novemer at 232.0 >>>> -8 lbs

Dec1.... 231.0 -- New Low!
Dec2.... 233.5 --

Man, I didn't think I was ever gonna get that paper done! I'm determined to get an A out of this professor AGAIN this semester (had her last semester too) and I'll do whatever it takes to get it!

I nearly shot out my coffee thru my nose reading about your Magic Mike experience Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised that there was even a plot line at all... and yeah, I'm one of those ones that had to get the blu-ray with the extra dance footage


Amber, Blonde, Christine, Gail, Monica, and Amber...THANK YOU for all your support. I wouldn't be here now if it weren't for the awesome women here!

Monica~ We're actually going for a couple concerts..old SoCal punk band.. we're seeing them twice actually We won't be there long enough to do too much else....but I'm sure we'll find somewhere to get in trouble

__________________________________________________ _______

I spent all day yesterday feeling very bloated and puffy for no apparent reason... I wasn't all that surprised by my weigh in today. Thought I had enough water yesterday, apparently my body has other ideas..

UD today. Had breakfast and I'm feeling way way stuffed....bloaty...meh!

I can't wait! It's been ages since we have been, so much has changed. It will be fun to explore and see what we've been missing all this time away. I wish it was for longer but just not possible this trip, but I'm thankful we get to go at all!

Went to bed feeling very stuffed and blah. Ready for a DD today and lots of water.

Not feeling great today, sore throat is hanging around. Slept in for a while and I never do so DH knows I'm really not feeling good. I hope whatever is trying to invade comes and goes quickly and leaves me in time for our trip!

Feeling bloaty still today but down .5 Praying that the rest of this "gain" is gone before TOM shows up cause I know the scale will rise some more and I'd really not like to see any higher....

Sorry you are catching a bug. I caught something last week and it hung around for a solid week. Heck, it's still here 8 days later, but appears to be exiting. I hope you get something much kinder. (((hugs)))
