Happy Birthday Mom!

Well, today is my mom's birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! I called her this morning and gave her her normal serenade of "Happy Birthday" the way that only I can. She so LOVES it!!! :) I'll be coming home to see her next week and spend the night like most years. I love my mom though and want to wish her the happiest of birthdays!!!

Sunday Morning

For some reason, I always wake up early on Sunday. As much as I would love to sleep in until 9:00 or something, I seem to be up by 6:00. I blame the damn job..haha! I have to get up early through the week and now I'm getting older so by next year I'll be up at 5:50 and 5:40 the year after that, etc. Dang.

Yesterday wasn't the best eating day for me. Ate a little too much but am trying to keep myself in check. Did well all week even passing up cookies, cake and muffins on different days. Just doing the best I can and not beating myself up too bad for having a rough day.

I went and saw 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' yesterday. It was pretty good and enjoyable. Successfully will reboot that franchise if that's what they're trying to do. The summer of movies is just about over. As stated before, I've seen a bunch of them this summer. I have rediscovered my love of actually going to the movies.

Some Summer Things

Well, it's damn hot here. As with everywhere else this summer it's been terribly hot the last few weeks. We had two weeks of shorts being acceptable at work but this week, when the first two days have been hotter than anything, we've had normal business casual dress. I guess things could be worse but I'd have loved shorts the last two days.

So over this summer I've done a couple of things...not weight loss related but just some fun things. Over a span of span of two weeks in early July I read all 7 Harry Potter books and saw all 8 movies. Yep, two weeks!!! I didn't do a whole lot besides read but I really got into those books and just wanted to keep reading.

I've seen a whole bunch of movies at the theater this summer. I've seen: Kung Fu Panda 2, Hangover 2, Thor, X-Men:First Class, Green Lantern, Super 8, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 and Captain America:The First Avenger. I've enjoyed them all in one or another although I think I loved Potter the most and thought Green Lantern was okay for what it was but was rather disappointed and unimpressed.

I'm feeling better about things right now and for the first time in awhile, went through a grocery store tonight and only bought the things I "should", not the bad things I may have wanted. Although, I have to say I didn't really want them tonight. It felt kind of good. Hopefully things are turning around. I'll be back tomorrow night with some more news...hopefully all of it good.

Guess Who's Back

Okay, I've been gone for a long time. A loooooooong time. I've probably put back on about 40 pounds from my lowest point. Damn. It just has not been a good time lately. I haven't felt a great deal of stress which helped bring about my downfall but getting back on the horse after falling off and being trampled by a whole herd of horses is much harder than you would think. I've done okay today and am just trying to go one day at a time.

I have come to realization that I don't handle weight loss success well. Each time I do things right for about 10-11 months or more and/or get to 100+ pounds lost, I fall apart. Just utterly fall apart. I've gained back this weight and my pants are tight and all the things in the size bigger have been donated so I have two ways to go....either buy new things or start losing weight again. I NEED to start losing weight again!

I will start again with updates next week but the weeks that are gone are gone. They are the "Forgotten Posts". I'm sorry that they didn't happen and that things haven't been better and going in a good direction. I've let myself and you all down and I'm sorry. I'll try not to let it happen again and disappear again. Even if things are bad, I need to post my thoughts as bad as they may be and just go with it all.
