I fit into size 10 jeans this morning. That’s pretty good considering my size 16’s were becoming too tight last December. This is all without a diet plan such as NutriSystem or Jenny Craig.
I did this on my own. Basically I eat one meal a day plus have coffee with skim milk and Red Bull.
I’m thinking Caplyta has made me a new woman because I’m also tanning and getting my nails done.
I want to be young again while I still can.
As the pounds melt away my figure is revealed.
I’m thinking I’d like to be a size 6 or 8 when I’m finished.
Let me update you about outpatient. I last told you that I would partake virtually. Since then I looked at the schedule and saw that the groups I need only take place in person. They are accommodating me in that I can arrive late and miss group therapy with the hostile girl who doesn’t like me.
I’m looking at outpatient differently now. At first I was there to make friends but now I really want the skills because I have a long range goal in mind.
I’ve been on disability for 24 years. I am doing pretty well. My physical health is good. I am single, no children. I want to take on a second career half-time. Going back to nursing is too hard. That wouldn’t be an attainable goal so I am setting my sites on becoming a counselor for alcoholics and addicts.
I am finding out what the credentials are. I think counseling would be a nice career for a mature person.
12 step living interests me even though I’m not actively addicted at present.
I believe I understand the core reasons as to why people use in the first place and that I might have something to offer a person once I complete the training.
So that is my long range goal.
I did go to church today as I had promised. I listened to the service and met the Pastor afterwards. I have a Bible at home and bought a book bag at Walmart afterwards.
So you can see a sun kissed me above. The tan is noticeable.
I want to look good and also take on that second career on a part time basis because I need to stay on disability for the sake of security. My illness can be unpredictable. At the same time I know I have life left in me. I am better than sitting around doing nothing.
Really it’s about making the rest of my life count.
I can’t forget to mention that I’ve been decorating my apartment. My brother put up new curtains for me today plus I got a set of matching lamps for either side of my loveseat.
Life is good 👍 😊 💜
