My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Slacker Blog Girl!

That's what Jil calls me.. I guess that's a hint that I should blog, eh?

Well, I'm doing alright on my GOALS for 2009.
I've been to the gym at least 3 times, probably more, but my brain is not functioning properly today. I also joined Weight Watchers on the 4th of January. I know it's odd for a post-op RNYer to join Weight Watchers, but at this point, I am on my own as far as my weight loss goes. I am finding that I can eat like a "normal" person, so I might as well learn how to eat properly. I follow my plan first - which is high protein, low fat. But I also stay within my points. I think it's going to be very successful for me, and I have found that I was over eating, which is why I essentially stopped losing weight. I'm not ready to be done losing weight. I'm going to hit my goal this time, and I'm going to stay within my goal! :) I'll actually hit lifetime in about 10 pounds, which is awesome. I never thought I'd EVER get to the point where I can go to Weight Watchers and not have to pay for it! hahah.

Work has been amazingly stressful for me lately, hence no blogging. I hope things calm down soon, or I will need to check myself in somewhere! heheh

Ok, back to work now...


Another Year is Here!

Wow, I really can't believe it's 2009 already. So much has changed in the past year, and I'm looking forward to seeing what 2009 has to bring!
I'm really facing the challenges of losing the last few pounds (15-20 more is my goal), keeping off what I lost, and making sure that I get myself mentally on track.. I have mirror image issues, and still think I'm always the biggest one in the room. I am ready for that to escape me! :)
I'm not a big resolution type person, but here are my GOALS for 2009.
1) To make it to the gym more often.
2) To get out of debt, or at least close to it.
3) Declutter my life.
4) Go back to school
5) Come to terms with the new me, and try to know myself again. :)

Hope you all had a happy and safe Christmas and New Year :)
