I've actually put a deadline on whatever this is I'm doing. I've decided to 'maintain' until I go back to work. At some point, it became too hard to be motivated to lose while having no schedule to speak of. I go back to work on August 6, so some time around then, I'll be back on a schedule.
I'm kind of excited to get back to school ... but, I also like laying around the house all day. Alas, what's a girl to do?

Thanks so much for everyone's kind words. I've been lurking and reading about you too. It means a lot to me that people out there want to make sure I'm doing okay. Hey! I've lost 50+ pounds. I have at least that much to go. I'm not going anywhere! Plus, I already donated the fall/winter clothes that I was fitting into so I have to go down at least one more size before it gets cold (thankfully, I live in Georgia where it won't get too cold too often). But still, I currently have about three outfits that will fit come November. You know I have to get my ass moving soon, because I'm not a fashion plate, but I do teach 8th grade. You can't stand to hear too many of this: "Ms. Hither, didn't you wear that on Tuesday already?" Kids may not study, but they notice everything --- when I get my hair cut, when I wear sandals without my toes polished, when I didn't sleep well. Everything.

Anyway, thanks for being here for me. I'm still here for you ... but on the sidelines for another week or so.

Glad you are still doing well, have missed your posts! Kids do notice everything eh? I only have to put on a dress and they say "Where are you going Mum?".... funny.

I know what you mean. But, keep up the great work. Villains have been attacking me left and right. Good thing I was able to get batpower down at comic-con last week. Off to the batcave, I have a mission. See you at It's a place to lose weight and feel great. Afterall, I am the master weight loser.

Trying to lose weight when your schedule is out of synch is really hard! Most of us have a hard enough time with that on the weekends, not to mention you getting the summer off! I think it's a great plan to try and maintain. Enjoy the rest of your time off!

Take care,
