*singing*  Fi-na-lly!!  It has happened to me....

Finally!!!  I made my first mini goal of shedding 20 pounds since surgery!  It's taken exactly 3 months, so it's definitely slow going.   But I'm doing it mostly on my own as I've only had one fill thus far.  I am averaging a loss of one pound per week.  Hopefully that will change once I get a J.O.B. and can afford the stupid $250 "administrative" fee the doc here requires before he'll do any fills.  Yes, I am still a little bit pissy about that considering everything listed in the "administrative" fee has already been done because it's all pre-op balogna that I've already done or bought!

I finally got my packet submitted to have my nursing license endorsed by the State of Florida.  Hopefully when I get back from taking Munchkin to my parents for her summer visit, it'll be endorsed and I'll be able to have a job ASAP.   Speaking of Florida, I've been here  for right at a month and honestly, I'm not all that impressed.  Everything costs an arm and a leg and the service you get for that price bites big burritos.  I'd rather be in Kansas...seriously!  How often do you hear that?!  One bright side to Florida is that I've been able to meet some great people and make new friends through our new church.  For that, I am thankful because I'd probably be losing my marbles otherwise!

Well, Hubster is here for the long weekend from Alabama, so I'm going to get going.  Just wanted to drop in and let you all know that I am still alive and the scale finally moved after 2-3 weeks of holding steady at 201.

Hope you all have a wonderful 4th!


  1. Is there another doc you could see? That $250 sounds like a ripoff! I'm sorry you're dealing with that. BUT!!! Congrats on losing 20 lbs!

    Sending you good vibes for that certification. Not having a job stinks!

    Have a great 4th!!!

  2. Congrats on the 20 pounds!!!

  3. The first few months are tough - especially before you get fills. Hang in there...once you start getting fills it will come off faster!!

  4. Sorry to hear your fills are going to cost so much, but welcome to Florida!!
