Don't put that in your mouth! You're not really hungry!

I'm back! Of course, I don't think anyone is reading anymore, and who can blame them. America said it best:

"I've been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find, but it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind."


It's a new year, but I won't bore you with any resolutions I've made—I didn't make any! Why set myself up for failure? I still have the same goals I had at the end of 2008: be kinder, gentler, and thinner! I did take a wee step backwards on that last one and have gained a few pounds since I stopped taking the Adipex back in October. I figured the body needed a break. The good news is, I can still fit into all of the clothes I did three months ago (if a little tighter). The bad news is, some pounds have definitely crept back on. Since I don't own a scale (crazy, I know) I don't know exactly how many pounds, but I will be weighing myself when I drop The Bear at school. Results to follow. :)

This is me, just last week:



I wish 1) my husband new how to use my camera ;) and 2) the shoes showed up better—they're HOT!

I have made the resolution decision to NEVER go back to 198 pounds (or even 188 pounds, etc.) My first time on Adipex I changed some of my eating habits for the better, and those changes have stuck with me (like portion control). As of this morning, I'm back on the Adipex and will be making it work even more for me. I have a finish line, after all. I want to lose 40 more pounds before I celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary (yes, John Rykert, that means 10 years!) in Las Vegas!

To do this, I need more than drugs and portion control. I need exercise. I know, I know, you've heard it all before, LOL. But dammit, this time I mean it. So, dear readers, post your comments and help keep me going! I have 164 days to drop 40 pounds. Crap, I'd better get moving!

UPDATE: I weighed myself and am not too disappointed—7 pounds are back, but they will soon be history!

170 today,

Melissa

@Keely: thanks, I hide my fat well, LOL!

@bronsont: are you trying to kill me? The last time I was on a bike Reagan was president.

I love reading your blog! You are doing GREAT! I am taking the same meds (well I was stop a couple of weeks ago!).... I was 171 when I started at the end of July and now I am down to 145. I am hopefully going to be going back to the doctor next week to get another prescription! I still would like to loose about 10 more pounds but I am stuck! It is like a have it a road bump and all I want to do (or think about!) is EATING!!! And it is way to cold outside for me to walk!!! :) BUT YOU ARE DOING GREAT!! KEEP IT UP AND KEEP POSTING!
