Friday and Twilight!

What a wild week at work, I got the job that I had applied for at work.  I also had to move to the other side of our building.  I am now in training and learning so much.  It is rewarding though.  I will be approving Charity applications for OSF and the Medical Group.  I recall when Adam was so sick how much help like this changed my life back then, so I love being able to help others.

I went to my support group on Monday night after being absent for over 2 years.  It was ok, I was uncomfortable at first about going back.  I used to lead this group, so it was hard.  I did meet someone there who remembered me however.  It was fantastic seeing her.  She was 400 pounds when she began and is now 270 I believe.  She has regained 37 pounds she told me.  So it was great for her to hear that I too had gained, but that I had gotten it back off.

I am glad that sharing my story will help others who are also struggling.  I know absolutely that is helping me.

I am doing ok, still not back in the gym the way I was before my teeth nightmares.  But I am back.  I cannot make excuses just because I am so busy with work, school and the holidays and family.

I am thrilled this is the weekend that "Breaking Dawn" opensFor those of you not familiar, this is the last book of the Twilight series and this is the first movie for that book, the last movie will be sometime next year.  So I am pretty excited, I am going to see it this weekend.

I have a short day today so I had better get back to work.

I'm sure it's good for people at the support groups to see that everything is going to be all roses and puppies during the process and there may be slipups and all kinds of things that can impede progress but as long as you're committed, you can come out better on the other side.

Let us know how the movie is. I'm gonna see it eventually, but I want to let the mania die down first... maybe next week! lol

Great job being back to the gym. One day at a time. :)
