A day in the life of an average New Jerseyian!

11th September, 2007. 10:47 pm.

 Hi everyone,
It's been awhile. I'm very happy Weight Watchers has been going really well.  I'm now 4 lbs below my goal weight and tomorrow I pick up my new car! 
I'm getting a 2007 Mini Cooper S!  Here's a picture! 

I know today is 9/11 and I live just north of NYC but this year I just can't deal with it.  I cried this morning but I guess living so close to it this year I couldn't really watch.

Hi everyone.  I know i haven't updated but things have been crazy and I haven't been up to posting.  In my regular full time job the women that I work with is coming back in June.  Only part time for a while but she will work up to full time.  I think she will retire with in a year or so.  I want her to retire when she's ready not because she sick.  Working for Weight Watchers is great.  Yes it's work but I love talking with other members and telling them that If I can do it they can as well.  I'm now working one meeting on Saturday morning and two on Tuesday evenings.  Yes I'm working at the meeting I went to while I was losing!!!!  Wednesday I'm dog tired but I still love it. 

My Hubby and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last week.  We didn't do anything real special but we did go out to dinner at a local diner.  I didn't have to cook so I was very happy. Plus he got me a XM radio to go.  The Pioneer Inno.  I love it.  It's great for walking/jogging after work as well as the car.  The past year NYC radio really sucks!

So far I've stayed with in my 2 pound limit so as long as I stay focused I know I can do this for life.  I do need to see my doctor soon to have a mini physical.  I think I'm low on potassium.  I've been getting leg cramps in my right hamstring for 6 weeks on and off.  I have been eating bananas and taking potassium pills over the counter but I think I should just get checked out.  

Today after work I when out for a walk/jog with my 14 year old daughter  she couldn't keep up with me.  How cool is that!!! I'll be 41 in August and I have more stamina than her.;)

Well I'll try to update more often.

Hi everyone I know I haven't updated in a while but here's the skinny on my life.  
Hubby and I finally had it out and he realized he's being a real old fart and need to pitch in more.  He has and all is well.  
KS has been doing poorly in school but contacted her case manager at school and now is trying harder but still gives me 'tude' too many times to count but she is working on it.
I just got a call today from the woman that I work with that she should be getting out of the hospital today and should be back to work at least part time in about 6 weeks.  YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Working for Weight Watchers is going well.  I really enjoy it and so far I've been working at least one meeting a week.  The pay is good for only 3 hours of work.  I don't have a regular meeting I'm just subbing but I've been working and I hope to get my own meeting soon.
Though all of my life turmoils I have been staying firmly on program and I will weigh in for April tomorrow.  I'll keep you updated.

Right now my life sucks!  My husband is being a dick, my daughter is being a bitch, my full time job sucks beyond words the only thing that is good right now is my work at Weight Watchers and my cat.  He loves me no matter what I just hope that he didn't get any of the tainted Iams pouch food. 

Current mood: bitchy.

I know I haven't been posting for a while but life is crazy.  I'm doing my job and the other woman I work with job.  She's been in the Hospital for 2 and 1/2 months. 

I just completed my Weight Watchers Receptionist training and worked my first meeting.  It's fun. Work but fun.  I also weighed in for March last week and I was exactly the same as last month!!!

My family has been driving me crazy Hubby and Daughter have been fighting a lot and keep dragging me in as a referee.  I think they need to work this out by themselves.  So far I have resisted binge eating or killing them. ;) 

I will keep you posted on how working for Weight Watchers is.  So far every one is great and since we all have a common goal of keeping our weight loss off it's real fun hearing there stories.

James Marsters is coming to Secaucus, NJ !! I've been waiting for years for him to come to NJ.  It's only 30 mins from me! I'm going!!  My hubby says that I'm a fan girl.  He's right I am.  I can't wait.  I don't care if I go alone.  I have wanted to meet James for years and now I have the chance.
Secaucus is nice but it's right off the Turnpike so it's another stereotypical New Jersey joke.  I wish he could see some of the other place here and not just Highways.  Jersey is beautiful.

Current mood: ecstatic.

Now that I'm lifetime I had no weigh in this week but next week in February so I will weigh in.  I couldn't go to my meeting because I went to a WW employment Info meeting.  I had fun and found out what I need to do.  Today, I got the call and I now have a part time job receptionist at WW I will go through training then I will start working.  I know it's more work on top of my Full time job but this is something I really believe in and I want to help others reach their goal.  I can't wait. 

Current mood: chipper.

I did it!!  I did it!! 
I'm a Lifetime Member !!  In fact this week I lost 1.6 why I'm not sure but hey I'm happy!! Next week I'm going to the Employment info meeting. 

Last night KS and I watched Heroes.  Very good show!  It reminds me of a show I watched when I was in HS in the early 80's on PBS.  It was a British import called "The Tomorrow People"  I loved that show.  Heroes is similar.

My fifth week of WW maintenance:
The .2 I lost last week is back.  :)  Next week I will make lifetime.  My leader is officially sending my name and info in to Weight Watchers so I can work at a meeting.  I started Weight Watchers on 9/13/2005 at 207.6 I made it to goal on 12/12/2006 at 141.4 That's 66.2 pounds lighter and healthier!  It took me 15 months to get to goal and I'm determined to stay here for the rest of my life.  So working for WW is a great way to stay focused and help others get to their goal!

In my life:
My co worker had her surgery yesterday and It went well.  I hope they got all the cancer and she recovers fast.  

My freeloading sister in law and brother in law finally moved out of my father in law house.  Now he can sell it.  Good for him. 

Winter has finally arrived in New Jersey.  Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

WW Maintenance: accomplishment
This week I lost .2 which is fine.  I'm almost at lifetime and I plan on celebrating.  I'm not sure how but for me this is a very big accomplishment.  I hope that I can work for WW at my meeting place at my tuesday time.  They don't have a regular weigh in person so I hope I can fill the void.  

My hubby got me a 100.00 gift card to Victoria's Secret and I got 3 new bras and 2 panties.  I'm wearing my new convertible push up bra it fits and looks great.  I love it and so does he.;)

Work is really crazy!  With the other woman out and W2's that need to be sorted and sent plus all the normal payroll stuff I think my head will explode soon.
