Reason to Lose

Got our notifications the other day about mine and MyPoolBoys's 20th year reunions. I have fallen behind in my weight loss goal for this year (I wanted to be at 130ish by summer), but I think my emotions and stress haven't helped in my motivation -- well -- the reunion probably will. Not that I want to impress anyone at MY reunion, or even really at MyPoolBoy's -- I just want to look better than the psycho who was chasing MyPoolBoy during HS and made my life miserable since (I will probably never be over it and MyPoolBoy can't seem to understand why). Anyway, she had no room for anything but improvement so she is bound to look better than she did in HS and if she does, then I have to at least have maintained SOOOOOOO I am now back on track and wanting to get down to 140s by June 9th (That's about 1 pound per week -- very doable!) It also would get me on track to be 130s by the END of summer which would be ok for the float trip in July.

Soo gonna dig out the TaeBo and Firm tapes and try to find a way to get to use them in the mornings. TAKS is Tuesday -- get that over with and we'll be on our way!

My results from the Dr. Phil test

My sister-in-law sent me this - I scored a 35, so my range puts these as my resutls:

Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your trust In your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken. (hmmmm MyPoolBoy should really learn to see this side of me!)

Lightning Struck Twice

Last year a player got injured badly enough to go to the hospital at the soccer game. We joked and teased that at least this year I would not have to go home on the JV bus while the coach went to the hospital. Were we ever wrong. The varsity coach told me he really didn't think lightning would strike in the same place twice, but sure enough one of the boys broke his arm in the first half, and I was on the JV bus back from the same place again!
