One week left...

until Thanksgiving! Holy crap! Time is flying! I'm a little bummed that I have to work the day after Thanksgiving. Boo! :( I LOVE shopping on black Friday! The crowds, the excitement, the Christmas songs--It totally gets me in the Christmas spirit! But this year I will be at work and Tom will be at home in our cozy bed. I think my place of employment should be closed. It would be a huge boost of moral to everyone who works here! Hell, that will never happen. We are even open on Christmas Eve! (And yes, I have to work!) Which really sucks when you live 3 hours away from all of your family so it's not like I can meet them right after work... Ugh! Now I'm just getting crabby thinking about it!

Moving on... I read this quote today, "I’ve learned that most people won’t change until the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing." Bingo. I have tried and failed at losing weight so many times. But finally, it clicked. And I knew I had to change. Because no matter what I had to do to lose the weight, it was worth it to no longer be the fat, depressed person I was.

But I also look at it from another angle...I am no longer "in pain" with who I am. I am a "normal" weight and my weight doesn't hold me back (as much) anymore. So, I'm having a hard time kicking myself in the ass because I don't have to lose weight. I want to. That's the difference now. (When I was 185+lbs I HAD to lose weight...I had no choice.)

Makes perfect sense! It doesn't mean it will get any easier to lose the last 10 pounds...but I still like that awesome quote!

Weigh-in day is tomorrow. I'm not sure what the scale will say, but since I've started jogging again, I am noticing a slight difference in my clothes fitting better, even if the scale hasn't caught up yet. We will see what happens tomorrow...

P.S. Emma did great at the vet! And she weighed in at a WHOPPING 1.7pounds! :)

There are 14 of us in my department. Only 4 people can be off on a vacation at one time. Which is stupid because we are always sooooo slow that day. And really? open on xmas eve?! It is D-E-A-D here that day. So why not just let us stay home and have us be happier? Oh well. Since I can't use my vacation days over the holidays, that means I will have 3 weeks carried over into January! Woohoo!
