Square One

I am going to give this another go. I have destroyed some of the progress I made, but I still have lots of progress that I've kept. However, I kept resting on the fact that I'd lost so much weight. I made the decision a few weeks ago, on my first time at WW in months, that I would reset my weight loss to zero pounds lost. I think that will give me the kick in the pants I need to start making that loss number big again.

At my first weigh-in since zero, I had lost 1.6 pounds. That was nice. It was the first time I'd felt like I'd lost in a long time. Of course, I'm basically where I was a year ago at this time. However, I feel like it's time to get back on track.

I'm starting over with my blog, but I'm leaving everything to be seen at the bottom. Since I'm starting over though, I'll have a new list of weigh-ins, I've written a new 'about me,' etc.

Here are a few personal updates. I am still dating Max. Much to my surprise. I'm not going to go back into old stuff, but I for one never saw this coming. I found that when I concentrated on my relationship with him and not how my relationship with him was different from all the other relationships I've had in my life (the ones that ended for some reason), that I was madly in love with him. We are so lucky to have found each other at such a perfect time in our respective lives, and I anticipate that we'll spend our lives together. After spending the last 15 months living between two homes (mostly his because of his cat and his nearness to both of our jobs), we will be combining homes in July. He's moving into my condo. I cannot wait! It seems like we've been living together already. Honestly, I've only slept in my own bed alone maybe five times in 2008 so far. At this point, the only prediction I have is this: I think by this time next year, we'll either be engaged or single. I've never been one who rushed things. I was never one of those girls who dreamed about my wedding. I still say that I'd rather never marry than divorce. However, I've begun dreaming about my wedding with Max. He makes me happy, and for the first time in a relationship, I truly know what it is to feel loved. Any boyfriends I was 'in love with' in the past just don't hold a candle to this.

Besides my love life, and my weight, there hasn't been that much going on. I've been on vacation from teaching for most of June. I was supposed to be teaching summer school. Actually, I taught summer school for a week. However, it soon became evident that there were too many teachers and not enough students. I had the least seniority, so I got the summer school axe. I actually anticipated it, and I was kind of glad to get fired. I worked a week and made enough money to cover some expenses, so I'm happy.

I hope that some of you who used to read my blog all the time still have me on your RSS feeds so you know I've updated. I'd love to hear from all of you, but I know I'll have to build my relationships back up and work on being consistent. Thanks in advance for being there for me!
