Life in the Fat Lane

As I near my thirtith birthday, I realize that it’s getting harder to get weight off…even than last summer where I dropped ten pounds (though I gained six back in October). I exercise and watch what I eat…but I still stay around the same weight. It’s very frustrating. I have this fear that once I pass April 19, my whole metabloism system will stop and I will forever be what I am…if not get bigger. I’m sure that if I got that mentallity out of my head then I would definitly probably lose weight faster (it’s the whole positive thought process). So I’m trying my hardest to lose fifteen pounds by my birthday (April 19), that way I’ll have five pounds leway…it’s hard.

Enough about depressing matters…I took the billing department on a ‘field trip’ this morning to the offices of the new company we purchased. They wanted to meet the new employees and see where the IT Department would be housed as of Feb. 28. Plus it was a good excuse to get out of the office for a little while. It’s going to be weird not being able to go downstairs and see my brother anymore…I’ll have to actually call him or email him. At least we get to keep the kitchen.

Well, I think that about covers it for now. I’m going to WA state in April for a friends wedding. I’m really excited. It’s two days after my birthday…so I can act like I’m going on a birthday trip. Woo-hoo!! I’m looking forward to seeing my friend and getting out of MO for awhile.

Until later,


  1. You always look thin, regardless. You have the luck of being tall, so you could gain five pounds and it wouldn’t even show.

    When you’re 5ft tall, you gain 5 pounds and have to buy a new wardrobe, or end up looking like you are hiding fruit salad in your pants. :)

    Don’t sweat it. :)
