Hey Sarah..sorry its been so long. Well, I've been bad lately and I'm hovering around 142 or over lately. I don't know why I cant keep on track. Ashley was just here this past weekend and I'm always bad when he's here because we always go out to eat. We did cook dinner saturday, which wasnt too bad but then had pumpkin shake. And then sunday went to red robin (love that place). Also been eating a lot of pumpkin stuff lately (pumpkin roll, cookies) and candy.
How have you been? Has your stomach pain gone away? I've been dealing with a back always hurting. My mom teases me that I'm an old lady lol.
I was feeling positive about starting things with his moving but there are going to be a lot of obstacles (money, money). I want him here so much but he has some bills and I hate to start our marriage off on the wrong foot. So I just have to try to be positive and hope things will work out for us.
Did you get your house you bid on? I hope you did.
I hope you have a great week! emoticon

Hey Sarah... so how was your weekend getaway? And I know what you mean about your boyfriend's focus on the computer, etc. Ashley is the same way. Even when he's here he likes being on the computer. I can understand it while I'm getting ready but aside from that. He is on his way down now for the weekend. We are going to see a lawyer tomorrow about getting things going on moving him down here. I still think it will be awhile but I would feel better knowing we're finally starting the process. It's going to be very expensive also.
That's great about your doing so good with diet and exercise! I haven't been exercising at all lately. I've been maintaining between 138-140. I need to get back to 135 then I really would like to be at 130 but 135 would be ok. And the holidays are coming and you know what that means.
My issues with breathing have finally subsided. Ashley thinks I'm a hypochondriac because I always have something wrong. I do seem to have issues all the time. I wish I could retire now!
How's your job search going? I get so frustrated. You have to apply online for everything and I keep doing that but get no calls. I refuse to be stuck at Cvs forever!
I hope you have a great weekend! Its supposed to be very nice! Talk soon emoticon

Hey Sarah.. sorry I haven't written you back in forever. I've just been going thru a rough time in the past couple months. I've always had issues with anxiety and ever since my aunt passed away I've been having lots of issues with my breathing. I've gone in to see my doctor and she says its anxiety just like I've been told in the past. And yes this relationship really stresses me out also. I love him a lot though. We are just going to do one of those quickee weddings because a lawyer said we should get married first before starting the process of getting him down here. And then later on we can have a proper wedding. So I'm not sure yet but we are going to need quite a bit of money for everything.
I have still been applying for other jobs. So your completely done with school now?
I actually made it to 135 I think about a month or so ago for one day! And then I got off track again and lately I'm around 139. I keep eating candy and sugary stuff lately (more than usual).
I hope things with you are going well?

Hey Sarah, well since I wrote you last my aunt passed away. She lived right next door to us. She was only 67 but had copd and was on oxygen. It's been a hard time lately. I did take off a few days. I've been worried about my mom because they were so close. This all happened just a few days after getting back from Canada. I've just been so stressed lately about that and hating my job more and Ashley not being here. My weight is still the same. I've not been really good so I'm still around 139. I've lately been bad eating icecream. I know its because of stress plus I love it.
I didn't buy anything too exciting in Canada. I kinda regret spending so much time shopping though and not enough just being with Ashley. I have been missing him so much. It just gets harder and harder being apart.
Thats great to hear that your about done with school!! I know your excited about that!
I have to work the whole weekend this one coming up. I have to wait til the last one this month before I see Ashley.
Have a great rest of the week!
