Wednesday Weigh-In and Pre-Holiday Fire Drills

Well, I'm down another half pound, to 144.6 today. That's perfectly fine. I doubt I'm going to be losing much more for a while, only because it looks like I'm getting close to where I want to be.

You'd think with the holidays, there would be major slacking in legal-land, but not so. I have to finish up my last remaining Continuing Legal Education credits, which means several days of BORE-ing seminars. And there are brief deadlines up through the end of next week. Presently, I have two word processing windows open on my computer screen, my email server up in another window, a browser window open to an on-line legal database and another on a court docket, and then this window is up for my blog. I'm running this computer into the ground. Poor thing.

And my poor sis has been sick and in the hospital since Monday, putting me in anxiety mode for a while. But no boo-hoos or condolences are necessary. She's getting better every day. The food does suck, I am told. So I'm not going to complain about my mediocre, over-microwaved chicken 'n green beans I'm trying to force down at the moment. People in bare-ass hospital gowns would take a dozen IVs if they could have my food. We should all be grateful.


  1. Congratulations on the weight loss! .5 of a pound is one you don't have to see again. Sorry you've got so much going on in your work life.

    I hope your sister feels better soon.

  2. I think it took me three months to lose my last 5 pounds. :) The fact that you're losing ANY weight with so much going on is amazing. Kudos!

    Healing wishes for poor sis! I'm glad she's on the mend.

  3. That's like losing half a box of butter. Way to go!
    I just have to say that I love your devilish profile pic. And you're studying law? Does that make you the Devil's Advocate? :P

  4. amazing journey you have had. I look so forward to hitting goal. Congrats.

  5. Thanks, ya'll. Sis is doing GREAT. No worries, although she'd sure like to be home right about...NOW!

    A half box of butter never felt so special. *dreamy sigh*

    @Kelly: Too late. I already crossed over to the dark side and have been an attorney since '98. *bwahahahaha*

  6. Condolences on the legal profession. At least it sounds like job security isn't an issue right now.

    Hope sis is home soon and sharing some chicken and green beans with you.

    Great news on the loss!

  7. I don't know what else to add except for DAYUM, woman - way to keep that scale moving downward!!!

    Hope life gets a little less busy for you soon.

  8. Hey Camevil

    I know I haven't checked in in awhile but you look amazing. Have a great holiday and keep up with the great work.

  9. Congrats on the loss.

    You are doing great!
