I can’t believe it. I step on the scale and I’m 189 lbs. It’s like the closer I get to my goal weight, the further away it feels. I remember when all I ever wanted was to be a size 12. I thought being a size 12 would be happy. Well, now I’m a 10/12 but still want (and need ) to lose more weight.
Somehow my accomplishments don’t feel like enough. Maybe its because once I’ve reached them, it seems it couldn’t have been a challenge if I’m there.
My roommate and I are still chugging along with the Atkins diet. It’s helped me get under 200 lbs, so I can’t say that I am mad about it. I really miss fruits, though.
The job search is coming, or should I say going. My fingers are crossed about a short term (3-6 months) opportunity. It would be amazing because that is just the right amount of time for my current company to get back into the swing of things. I also think it would sound better – here’s my caring too much about what others think – to say that I am leaving for a fellowship than just leaving.
I was really upset Friday when I went to get my lo loestrine fe prescription refilled. Somehow, even with insurance, it cost me $75. I nearly broke down crying in the store. I’m sure it didn’t help that it was the first day of my period. I like this medication because I haven’t gained any weight, skin is reasonably clear, and some of the obnoxious PMS pains are gone. Also, I haven’t had any pain – likely from ovarian cysts in a long time. I think I’m doing better and I’d like it to stay that way. However, I need some kind of RX coverage to keep paying for this medication!
I’m super excited to meet my ESL student next month. I posted a listing on university tutor a verrrry long time ago, and he was searching the web and found me. It’s such a great match. He’s visiting from Brazil and chose Philadelphia as his first stop in the US. I told him it’s a pretty awesome city and filled with history. I’m glad that my student found me and that he’s coming next month. The extra income is definitely needed.
Full disclosure: he’s also pretty cute
I’m applying for health care coverage via healthcare.gov. Finally, I can get on the damned website. It seems like maybe people have forgotten about it already. I really hope I’ll be able to find something with better coverage than I have right now! Please Please!
