This week has gone fairly well on the food front, meaning that I haven't had too many awful cravings or temptations. I have no idea if any of it is doing any good since I haven't weighed myself but last night I tried on the infamous Seven Jeans (I discovered that they are actually NOT Seven jeans but are Citizens of Humanity or some stupid hyped up name like that) and I could just barely get them buttoned but I got them over my hips and closed and that's definitely progress. I think my big ol' gut is looking a little smaller, too.
I am really not just totally obsessed with my body - there are other things going on in my life besides my weight loss goals but I focus on that because that is what this whole blog is supposed to be about. For example - Right now Justin and I are sweating it out and waiting for our bar exam results. We should get them around April 16 or 17. Waiting sucks!! For me, it is especially crucial that I pass, not only because I failed half of the exam last time but because my boss and I have a pretty full case load right now and it would be great to actually be able to a) sign documents that I have worked so hard on and b) charge more $ for my time. However, I would give up passing if it meant that Justin would absolutely pass. We both feel pretty good about the exam, though, so I am hopeful that we will both be getting the small envelopes (you only get the big one if you fail and last time, I got the big one - shiiiiiit). I will not be happy if only one of us gets the small one, no matter who it is. Okay, I can't think about this anymore because there is nothing I can do at this point to influence the outcome. I just don't ever want to take another bar exam again. One in 1999 (Oregon), one in 2006, one in 2007 (both Montana) - that is enough!
Justin is sitting next to me and eyeing the computer as if he has some big pressing thing he needs to do and I am keeping him from it. He didn't make a move toward it or say he needed to work on it UNTIL I picked it up and then suddenly he has a critical assignment to complete for his Aunt that has an immediate deadline. Hmmm - men.
