Friday Update: Week 9

Start weight: 204 lbs
Current weight: 197 lbs
Goal weight: 160 lbs

After running around this week, I think my activity has went back up. It definitely helps that I’ve been drinking more water. So, unless my scale is broken, I’m making progress again. Yay!

I do have some bad news. My most comfortable pair of jeans are way too big.

I wore them last Friday to take my test, and let me just say that it is a hassle to keep pulling them up every three steps I take. It is good news, I guess, but still. I liked those jeans.

I do want to tell you guys that I have had to start taking my Celexa, again, also. I started taking half of one a day for the simple reason that I am unable to focus. I mean, come on, my concentration was absolutely wacked.

Last Friday, I took the Language Arts portion of the real GED test. I passed! While I didn’t get the college credit I was hoping for, I still managed to make a great score. However, while I was taking the test, it was extremely difficult for me to concentrate. I’m not sure if it was my test-taking anxiety or the fact that I ran over a squirrel on the way there. I almost cried, by the way.

That’s the main reason why I really wanted to take my medicine. Even though my anxiety has been manageable, my ability to keep my mind on track was pretty jumbled. It doesn’t help that a million holidays are coming up. The good news, though, is that I am moving pretty fast with my GED. For now, anyway. I take the Social Studies portion next Friday. I guess we will see how I do!

My blog is suffering from neglect because of how busy I am. Between my son’s birthday, school, GED classes, and these holidays coming up, I don’t have a whole lot of time to just sit down and write. I will still keep the updates coming, though. You guys are a huge part of my “take back my life” journey. I definitely could not have gotten this far without all the support I’ve received. My confidence has boosted, tremendously. I feel like I’m accomplishing everything that I never would have thought I could accomplish.

And you guys are to thank!

If I could, I would buy every one of you a round of drinks. (Or, chocolate milk for the non-drinkers.)

Love you!
