Welp! It has been a while since I have blogged.. A lot going on with getting ready to go back to work tomorrow from maternity leave. Not ready at all to return but I got to get back my 100% pay since my job only pays 50% :( . I am also happy to say that I have stayed away from a scale since my last post up until tonight.. errr!!! lol! I just HAD to figure out what I am loosing at this point. I have had days where me and hubby have at at fast food restaurants and I am getting better at not feeling guilty for what I am eating and also have made a lot of wiser decisions when we go out. I had somewhat of a chocolate day today and ate some unhealthy treats! lol! but its all good... just portion, portion, portion! That is what I keep telling myself. Well with that said and the junk that I ate today and this past weekend, with my 30 min. treadmill workout at least 6 days a week and eating better I am happy to announce that I am indeed in the 230's!!! YAY!! GOODBYE 240's for GOOD AND FOR EVER!!!! I am not sure accurately where I am in the 230's, I will weigh myself again in the morning and report in my next post. I just saws 23(something) and got excited.

As far as my JM30DS ... I kind of stopped after day 2 of the last 10 days.. I think it did its purpose in jump starting my endurance and helping with some quick results in my muscles. I plan to do it again possibly when I get down some more or get bored with the treadmill.
I thank God for my motivation and I am excited!!
Tomorrow I do go back to work and its also a day for my nutrition class but I think I am going to pass on the nutrition class just because I have to get in the habit of getting the kids to daycare prior to work and I do not want to tire myself out too much. I shall see how it goes. I did promise myself if I get down to 225 by 3/25 I will cancel my pulmonologist appt and possibly stop pursuing the LapBand surgery but right now even if I do reach that goal I may just keep it.. it wont hurt to see a pulminologist.. right?! lol!

Oh yeah and I recently purchased the book "Eat this, not that" I keep it in the car with me when me and hubby go out to eat.. Its a book that breaks down some of the best and worst fast/restaurant foods out there.. Including calories, fat grams, and sodium.. Its an awesome book. I consult it most of the times before hubby stops somewhere or talks about eating out esp if I can not check the nutrition guide online prior to going out.

Well Im about to go to bed! Good night everyone! :)
Stay Blessed!

P.S. still waiting to hear about a clinical seat for my RN program.. please keep me in prayer.. I need this in more ways than one! Thank you again!! :)

We are at the same spot on our weight loss journey, 230s...I have finished nursing school and 2 years into my carreer as a labor delivery nurse and am craving the married life...and you have the married life and are trying to get into nursing school!!! Keep me updated! I remember how stressed I was applying to school after school
