Hey guys it's been a while because of school... I hav a few things I want to touch on. I have some encouragement & need some also..

I started at 208 a few months ago and I am now at 168. I've lost 40 lbs!! Part from my meds and part from exercise and lifestyle changes. I'm still losing. My goal is 154. So I have some to go still.

My friends baby will be here either wedn or Thursday. So, I'm super nervous about that. But excited.

My mom and sis are moving out this weekend. My dad still has no idea. So, that's stressing me out a lot.

I'm on spring break so school stress is low, but always there.

I have a great bf that I've been seeing a few weeks now. That's going pretty good actually. He's a great guy and so I have high hopes.

Well, I'm on my iPod so it's not easy to type... Hope everyone is well and I'm looking forward to hearing from you guys and trying to get on here a little more. Take care!!

Hi Christi,

Thanks for posting. What are you going to do? Are you going to stay with your mom, dad or friends? I hope that you are feeling okay with this all.

I am happy about your weight loss. I am glad that you are happy with it too. I think it is wonderful and I am losing a little too. So I am happy about that.

Keep up the good work, post again when you can. We always love having you on the forum.

Take care my friend...

Hugs, Karen

Yea I was just diagnosed with GERD also so... Just more pills I have to take each day. Yay! (sarcasm)... But he said I was at a good weight.. Made me happy!  But, I plan on losing some more...
 
Karen, I plan on staying with my friend and the baby a few days after he comes home, until my mom moves out. Then, we are going to stay at my dads house. She will stay in my room and I will stay with the baby in my sisters room... We will most likely go back and forth.. and Im sure I will stay at my moms occasionally.
 
I am okay with it for now. Although, my finances are not well right now so Im not sure what I am going to do about that. I am trying to stay positive. The doctor today was impressed with all the meds I take and that I still go to school and that I pursue help for all of my problems. He said most people ignore it and just dont go to school but he was impressed that I continue to go and that I am studying Social Work. He was a nice guy... he's my gastroenterologist... I have a med monitoring tomorrow... and my friend is being induced in the morning so I may have a baby tomorrow. I will most likely post a pic on my facebook immediately after he is born so you can see Karen!
 
Well, I am going to try to get some sleep before my friend gets back home, i havent been sleeping and we have to be at the hospital early so I need to try to get some sleep! Thanks for the support! Take care all
