I feel like I'm just melting away!!

I'm so happy!!  I've lost another 5 lbs!  I'm not sure how many total that is, bit I think it's like 35 lbs now.  I'm so friggin happy!!!  I've been loosing since about mid september!  What a great way to start the year!  And loosing weight wasn't even one of my new years resolutions! lol.  I think if I had made it a resolution, I wouldn't be able to keep up with it.  But I'd like to compare pictures.  The one of me from this summer and one that was taken just a few weeks ago. :)

Here's the photo that was taken over the summer, makes me sick just looking at myself.

I'm not sure if you can tell, but i can feel a difference, mainly in my clothes.  And of course the way I look at myself in the mirror.  I feel thinner, so I guess that's what really matters! 
And that's my wonderful Grandma in the pic with me, and I'm holding my uncle's new puppy.  He was so cute!!!
I can't wait to loose more!  I'm releived that I have aboslutely no cravings for any kind of fast food or junk food.  Deffinately makes loosing weight a lot easier!  For breakfast I have an Odwalla bar, for lunch I have another odwalla bar, then I make Munchkin and I a nice dinner.  And they are small portions.  Of course I am still taking my vitamins, 2 glucosamine, 2-4 focus factor, 2 omaga-3 fish oil capsules, and 1 multivitamin.  Every now and again, i have a sip of soda, but it's like 4 oz, and no more than 8 oz that may be once a week, if i even have any.  I also conitnue to have sweets and some junk foods, I just have them in moderation anymore.  I just still can't believe how easy it is to loose the weight anymore.  I guess every other time I've tried I haven't been ready subconciously, but now I am ready.  That's really the only explanation, or it's the focus factor.  And it does help me focus in school.  I stopped taking if for like a week, and when I went back to school, I could tell a difference.  I had a hard time paying attention and retaining the knowledge.  But this isn't an add for focus factor lol.

Oh, Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Years!!!

Another year has come and gone.  It's always sad to see the old year end even if it was a crappy year, but it's so exciting for the new year to start.  I'm so curious what this year has in store for me.  Hopefully a new job!  That would be awesome!!!
I know everyone makes new year's resolutions, and sadly, I'm not different.  I originally wasn't going to, but I thought about it and there were a couple things that I would like to make sure I do this year.  I'm staying away from the obvious ones that everyone does such as loose weight, get organized, blah, blah, blah.  I never get organized and I never loose weight, so this year my New Year's resolutions are going to be.....

1) to graduate from college
2) Find a job as a Pharmacy Technician
3) Make an effort to be more crafty (make more crafts)
4) To attend craft fairs as a vendor and sell my goods.

I think those are very resonable and very attainable.  I REALLY want to make the effort to sell my crafts.  Not only because it will help offset the fact that I'm the only income now and that I only work part time.  So, if I make the effort, I can make it my second job.  That's really what I want to do anyway, I really don't want to be stuck behind some pharmacy counter counting pills all day, but the pay is good, it's a regular paycheck and it has benefits.  My ultimate goal is to work 3 12 hour days, tues, wed, and thurs.  I know it's a long shot, but hey, you never know right.  That leaves the weekends open for craft fairs.  I was a little bummed because there's one coming up in february that I really wanted to attend, but I don't have enough stuff, and I don't think I'm going to be able to make enough stuff to sell by then.  But that's ok.  Spring isn't too far off and I should be able to get enough made by then. 
Wish me luck and I hope everyone's New Year is filled with wonderful things!
