Finally Back in the Right Direction (week 51)

Last week's fill plus logging my food has really helped with the weight loss. I'm down to 213.4, which is the lowest I've seen on the scale since we've been back from MAY. 3.1 pounds down from last week and only 5 more pounds to go to reach my all-time low, so I'm pretty excited about that. I really feel like I got a good fresh start with this time and I don't want to screw it up this time.
I think I'm going to go to my first Jazzercise class next week. I was waiting for my sister-in-law to be able to go with me, but she's busy, so maybe I'll just go by myself. Unless Chris would want to go with me.

In other news, I met with my cooperating teacher for student teaching yesterday. It went well. She seems really cool. She wants me to be as independent in the classroom as possible and she's even letting me have a say in the rules and procedures for the semester. I'm starting to get excited. The school is pretty nice. What I really liked about it was that each year, they have their senior art students paint their own murals on the walls. We're talking floor to ceiling student artwork. It was awesome. There was abstract art, unicorns, sports jerseys, the pink panther...anything and everything the students could imagine. It's so great. I told my teacher about my WLS because I want to make sure I'm able to have snacks and water with me in the classroom. She said that would be fine because she brings stuff all the time. She also said that another woman in the English department had WLS. Might have to make friends with her. All in all, it seems like it'll be a really good experience. I'm really starting to feel like I'm ready for this :)

I've got a busy weekend ahead: brother's birthday's the 29th and daddy's is the 31st, so I'll be doing that, plus (hopefully) spending some coupons at Fashion Bug. So sad they're going out of business. Not sure if I'll be working this weekend as the woman I work for was admitted to the hospital. Hope she's ok. She's been having some heart problems. If she's not out for my shift with her tomorrow, I'm going to call my company to see if I'm allowed to visit her. I've been working for her for about a year and a half now and we've gotten pretty close. If this is her time, I'd just like to be able to say goodbye, which I don't think is too much to ask. But, hopefully she's ok and she'll be out of the hospital soon. Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Congrats on the loss!

Oh no, I hope the lady you work for will be okay. Or if this is her time, she at least has an easy, peaceful passing. Jeez, that feels horrible to say.

Glad to hear the visit with your cooperating teacher went well. I would definitely talk to the other teacher who had WLS. Unless she's been unsuccessful, then I'd steer clear. (I know I sound evil, but you don't wanna find an "eating buddy"!)

Have fun this weekend celebrating your dad and brothers' birthdays!

OH, and great job getting back on the wagon. Are you on MFP? Are we already friends on there? I have so many people on there, it's like mini-FB. sigh.
