Addendum to Yesterday's Post/ Weight Loss Update

First, an addendum to yesterday's post.  I kinda feel bad about writing that now.  Looking back I wrote it out of frustration and with not a whole lot of grace.

I didn't give the benefit of the doubt to a whole group of people who have a job I'd rather not have during the Christmas season.  I mentioned that I've been in their shoes, but a lot of time has passed since then and I think I've forgotten a bit how stressful it really is.

I thought about deleting the post altogether.  But, I think I will leave it there for now.  I do, however, want to apologize to those folks who are working in retail/ service industries.  I know you work hard.  I know this is a rough time of year.  And, those of you with good customer service really do still outweigh those with not so good.  

I'm going to work harder to look for the positive this holiday season and all year long.  And, hopefully I remember to say 'thank you' for a job well done.

Second, I've reached another weight loss milestone.  And, I feel a little silly mentioning it right before Christmas.  But, I'm really excited, so I wanted to share.  As of this morning I have lost 30 pounds since July (35 pounds since the beginning of this year).  I still have a few more to go, but I feel SO much better than I did at the beginning of the year.
 - I have more energy.
 - My moods have evened out (I still can be moody, but nothing like the wild swings I was having earlier this year)
 - I feel lighter & more comfortable in clothes.
 - I just feel overall better instead of feeling kinda yucky most of the time.

Sometime after the new year I plan to write a post on what I've been doing to get healthier.  I've had a lot of people I know ask me, so I figured I'd put it all down.  And, really it's stuff I knew I should be doing all along.

If I don't get back here before Christmas, Have a very Merry Christmas!
