|Just a little sip...|
I know, I know. I never write. I really should start.
So much has happened in the last three months. About a week after I wrote my last entry, lo and behold, Jason came back into my life. We've been together since April 28th, and things are progressing marvelously. So surprising and shocking, I know. We had one slight bump where I caught him asking for pictures from a nasty ass chick. I let him know in no uncertain terms that I was not afraid to walk away and say goodbye forever. This is our final chance to make it work. We're planning for me to move from Washington to Maryland. And if we can't manage to stay together and work together to make this move happen... there's really no point in trying ever again. So, this is it.
Speaking of the move, it really is such a scary thought! But so exciting, too. I've been going through my stuff and selling things on ebay... my old raver pants, some books, random things I've collected from my work to sell on ebay but never got around to it. I've done pretty good so far! I'm also saving money, we're doing great with bonusing every month at work so those go straight into my savings. So about $200 a month. Also, Jason's mom is such a heinous psycho bitch that she is "kicking him out" in a couple months, but letting him save up money and not pay rent so he can do so. Little did she know, we already had plans. But, that really helps out so now he can put a lot more money to our savings.
It's July now, we're shooting for me being there and us having a place by October 1st. He even took the initiative and started looking and calling around for places yesterday! Another shock to me, as I'm so used to him being so damned unreliable. He found a really cheap place that includes most of the utilities. But, I looked up some ratings last night and there are a lot of negatives, mostly including mice and roaches. I have never lived in a place that had bugs, so I think we'll have to look elsewhere.
I still have a lot of prep work to get done before moving. Basically, I have to fit everything I own into my minivan. That's what we're driving over there. That also means getting it checked out and making sure it's ready to drive clear across the country. lol. I'm making Jason fly out here to meet my family and all that, before we drive back, so that way I won't be all alone driving across the country with just my two kitties. haha. I have a lot of the basics already, we're just going to be kind of short of furniture when we get there. I have a couple small tables, a dvd rack... that's about it for big stuff that will fit into my van. Jason has a bed, so we're good there. We'll have to scour freecycle or something to get some furniture.
I also need to make a few appointments before I go. I need to go get birth control, which means another of those lovely "annual" exams. Bleh. So uncomfortable. I also need to find a dentist that will take payments, since my dental insurance only pays 50-80%. My teeth are really bad and I'll probably need them all extracted and dentures or something. Not what I'm looking forward to, but I'd like to get it done before getting out there and having to jump through all sorts of hoops. So we'll see.
Weight watchers has been going great! I've lost 37.4lbs since January. I'm just 8 lbs shy of my high school weight. That is so insane! Every week I only see a pound or two loss, but when you add it all up.... 37lbs?!?! That's a lot! And I can totally tell, too. I've dropped about 5-6 pants sizes, since I carry most of my weight in my hips and ass (lol). I got some size 14 pants the other day and was like "Nahh, these will NEVER fit me. I'll just hang onto them for when I lose enough weight." Tried them on... AND THEY FIT! With room to spare! I don't think I've ever worn 14s.
I've noticed so many changes in my body, too. I've always been infatuated with collarbones, but I've been too fat to really have much definition on mine. But now I do! And I unconsciously touch my neck area all the time now, haha. Also; hip bones! I love running my hands over my hips and not just feeling rolls of fat. I mean, I've still got aways to go, but now I'm curvy, and not roll-y. If that makes sense! lol. I love it, and it's been worth it. It's really not even all that hard, since you can basically eat whatever you want so long as you stay in your points range.
Anyways, this has been long enough I think. I'll work on writing more often. This whole experience with the move really should be documented!
