I have issues (and if that isn't a No shit, Sherlock statement, nothing is). Issues with self-esteem that mainly stem from my weight and body image and all that lovely crap. I weigh too much. I'm not going to say how much, but I need to lose a considerable amount of weight. It's not gastric bypass-worthy, but it's pushing it. So, yeah. Yuck.
I'm taking part in the OC New Me Challenge. I've pledged to lost 30 lbs. I can't kick in that much money, but I figure kicking in even a little bit will help keep me in line. Are there many of you OC-ers out there doing this?
I was also inspired by this post over at Oh, The Joys (who's a fucking riot and if you aren't reading her regularly, put her on your blogroll and do it now), I have dragged out my old Weight Watchers stuff. Last time I did it, I lost 40 lbs. Of course, I promptly got knocked up with the baby I lost before I got pregnant with the Boo, but now that TCBIM has been snipped, I shouldn't have to worry about that. (Unless Johnny Depp comes knocking, but that's another fantasy for another time.)
I've only been doing this for four days but I've already lost five pounds. Five! Yay! Go, me. I guess I need to take a picture of my scale and send it to Allison.
And in other news, we have heat!! Whahooooooooooo!
TCBIM got a second job, tending bar. We had been talking about me going to work at someplace like Barnes & Noble or Whole Foods, but this came up for him. We'll see if he makes enough money doing two nights a week. I don't really like the idea of him bartending - the hours are going to suck for him and the temptation to have a few after hours are going to be there - but hopefully he'll make enough to make it worth his while.
