Weighing somewhere around 215-220 lbs, aka almost complete countered all weight loss progress to date. Still on track to leave the military this year. Revised job hunting begins in full swing when I return in early/mid September, which puts income, saving and wedding planning for June on track.
5 people living in a 2 bedroom apartment does not work. The extensive Reno to the family house was supposedly completed enough for us to move back in but only at the extreme insistence and strong-arming by family. Turns out the room Karly and I are in won't get finished flooring until after I can afford to get my own place and move out. Learned this after cutting our feet on nails and staples sticking up from the rough wooden and very dusty floor. Not impressed because it is worse living like that than in a small room in the apartment; at least there we eventually set everything up and had a comfortable system.
I am eager to spend a full day working in some army things so I don't get back stabbed. Signed up for the Project Management course at UofM which happens to run concurrently to army week nights, preventing me from attending but also opening up opportunities for others to assault me with indefensible attacks as I won't be present. All the more reason to get things done this week.
Struggling with obviously wrong or avoiding responses to my requests for the data that will ultimately lay the basis for my formal redress of grievance regarding the abusive mishandling of my annual review and promised-then-aborted promotion to Captain. I ought to win hands down by the 3rd round when it is reviewed by a board of senior officers not involved in the colossal fuckuppery that directly affects me. I am sick of paying the price of others' shameful incompetence and blatant lying and smearing. I'll owe a few thousand in lost gear over the years but also receive a severance package totalling close to 10K and while I cannot get years of my life back I will be free.
I am increasingly excited about the next World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria, out 25 September. My brother has friends that I am acquaintances with who are returning to WoW and they Re the extremely capable yet relaxed players who we will have fun doing new and hard things with, earning awesome looking gear. This is the paladin gear I will wind up with:

Cool blue colours, full plate, and it has wings!
I will enjoy being in school again. As LONG as it took me to graduate I have also been out for 6 years. I will surely get an A in the course and will strive for the A+ because I learned what really working hard is through the army, starting from the Summer of 2005 and culminating over the last 3 years.
I will adjust my weight goal to be under 200 lbs for the end of the year. I am in dire need of a regular schedule to plan meals and workouts around. This Fall will see me doing exceptionally well at school; in a new jobs where I work hard and receive not only good pay but recognition AND reward for outstanding results; permanent weight loss, I swear; and bring me closer to being married; and out of the army for the end of the year, ideally as a Captain with enough severance to cover all my debts.
Cross your fingers.
