I had to post this even though it's off schedule. It's exciting! I knew when I got on the scale that I was a little backed up. I just needed to make sure that I hadn't gained all of my weight back in the 3 weeks since I took on the new job. The scale at the time showed me that I hadn't gained any back which was good enough for me.

This morning I hopped on the scale. I've been feeling really off. Kind of soft from lack of exercise, not as regular as last month. Bloated. Badly gassy. I was certain there might be a little gain there. I looked down expected 185 or higher and saw 180.8 instead.

Wow! I have to stay vegan. My body is regulating on its own even without exercising. My body hasn't done this in years - maybe seven or eight years! That's a 1 pound a week average, and I'll take it as long as it stays consistent.

Meanwhile, I've got small group tonight and LA Fitness is in that direction, so I'll stop in and get a free 1 week pass to try them out. Okay, back to work now.

Sunday is my normal weigh in day and then I post on Monday. But, I just couldn't wait to post this excitement. Today I weigh-in at 183.0 pounds. My lowest weight ever on FatSecret!!! I started this journey on February 23, 2010. The whole thing has been quite a struggle - a battle really - with my hypoglycemia. It made me so sad to see myself putting in more effort to lose a fraction of the weight over the last several years. I developed worse eating habits as I increasingly lost hope. I'm so happy to have found something that works for me, a physically active hypoglycemic who loves to eat. I'm a low fat, high carb, whole food, plant based vegan. I don't count calorie, I don't measure portion sizes. I eat until I'm full and then I stop. I have energy and alertness to run around and do things. I don't need caffeine. And, I get to indulge every now and then.

I'm just really happy today and so glad that this doesn't feel like the bottom. I'm not starved. I'm not dehydrated. I'm not over extended. I can go lower!

I've got a little bit of a tummy poking out this morning. Had to eat out for lunch and dinner yesterday since my lunch had gone bad while sitting on my desk. I was sniffing around like, who is passing gas and why won't they go to the bathroom. Turns out, that was my lunch - HA!

I am sure that pita bread that I ate with my hummus is what's adding a little extra fluff, so it's lots of water and lots of veggies today. I made a green smoothie for lunch with romaine, banana, mango, lemon juice, and flax seed. I also tossed in some of those old sugar-covered, dried pineapple that have been sitting around since last month. Today I'm scheduled for a two mile run which will definitely help deflate me and get me back on track.

So, one more day until I'm out of here! I'm so excited! I've done a little bit of work here and there, but I didn't dive in like I would have if they gave me the PTO that I requested. My boss finally wants to meet with me on my last day to see what work I have leftover. Really?! The last day?

I feel like the meeting is mandatory only because I work from a cyclical caseload, leftover isn't a term that applies to what I do. Maybe she means paperwork, but she told me to do that last week, and I haven't started anything new. Why bother? I'm leaving, why start relationships with clients that I won't be around to foster. It's better for them to wait two weeks for their permanent liaison.

Anyways, I got my tax refund and immediately paid off the roof repair and put the remainder towards the credit card that I'm trying to pay off and my charity. I had to do it quickly before I got to experience how good it felt in my bank account. Now I can put the focus back on the credit card. Stupid roof, I'd have the credit card paid off by now if I didn't have to suddenly take care of that. On a positive note, it's not like I'm up against a deadline or something.

So, let's knock today out of the way, because I'm just one step closer to a better quality of life!

Oh, my coworkers are so sweet. I bought specialty cupcakes from the bakery up the street because I didn't want our standard, store-bought, vanilla cake with whipped cream frosting. My coworkers bought me a card and supplied chicken wings and salad. I chowed down and had like 8 or 9 wings...I'm not even gonna lie! I was surprised that it still tasted good because in the back of my mind I wondered if going vegan would mean meat would eventually disgust me.

Today, I reached out to HR to find out if they got my email that I sent two days ago. I had requested that they go ahead and terminate my employment on Friday instead of Tuesday. The difference being that Friday is the end of a pay period and that would make a clean cut. HR did not answer, rather they scheduled for me to meet with them at 10:30.

Why do I need to meet with them? They already sent me the exit interview and I can't be bullied into changing my answers. You know what? I do need to know what the consequences are if I don't come to work next week. My biggest concern would be not getting my PTO paid out to me. I earned that and I want it.

I'm proud of myself, I finally remembered to take all of my supplements and it's paying off. Now, I just need to get to the store to find some B12s and I'm set. Yesterday, the skinny jeans fit even better than last week. Now, that felt amazing. I remember when they used to cut off my circulation when I wore them all day at work. I've also got some business skirts to donate too. I tried my skirts on Monday because it was actually warm enough to wear a skirt. They're too big now.

Tonight, I have a small group meeting so that means fast vegan food for me again. I think I'll be ok, though. It's better to eat a whole-food meal than to fill up on the snack food the ladies bring.

I really hope this meeting goes in my favor. I need the days off regardless of whether they give them to me willingly. I need a chance to put this place behind me so I don't mentally take it with me. Is that so much to ask?

Onward...
