Nice!  One more challenge to complete the respawn!   I realized after this last challenge that I have successfully completed all challenges so far this year!  Yay for successful respawns!

Thats awesome Shello great job! Yes I feel I am in a good space with the forums now.

 

Back in the day I was super active, posting on nearly every rangers thread and going all in. In the past I felt when I returned I had to do the same and always got burnt out.

It's a good lesson.  But it's a lot better to follow less and stick around than to do too many and get burnt out.

I have been avoiding the series.  I am sure it is awesome but the first time I read a big epic like this was the Wheel of Time and I eventually had to give up until the series got completed.  I am still waiting for Winter to Come...

So yesterday was an exciting yet busy day at work. A huge project I am working on is coming along well. Since I have taken it over it is far more organized and progressing in a much better way. With tracking and data to show the marked improvement. I did lose an employee since shes off to have a baby (her being pulled out of work was unexpected) so I had to push to get someone trained earlier than I had anticipated. But things are progressing well.

 

Then last night I was talking with the owner of the business and he told me he had given me a 10% raise. Which is HUGE and amazing and something I definitely need at the moment.

 

I did stop on my way home last night to get a small celebratory ice cream...

I signed up for the virtual challenge to climb mount Everest. Will be setting all that up today. Anyone who wishes can join me! You don't need to sign up either. Just track your mileage!

 

I am recommitting to fasting today. I had been eating breakfast on my way in because my meds made me nauseous. This does not happen if I keep up with them. I am happy to report that I did not have to deal with the nausea today!

 

I have stepped into the realm of online dating. It has been a pleasant experience so far surprisingly. I am using Bumble and currently speaking with a few women. It has done wonders for my self esteem and all that since the only way you can start a conversation is if they initiate it. I am hoping to meet one of them in person relatively soon!

 

The business had me tied up all weekend. We released a new product for sale on our website and saw some good traction. Of course when making samples I had 0 issues with the process. Now that we have orders 3 of them literally exploded in my hands. It was a frustrating. ON top of that we started working at 9am on Saturday and I didn't leave until 11pm. We did take a lunch and short dinner but still it was tough and we where nowhere near done. So we ended up working Sunday morning from 8 to 12. Everyone was frustrated and on edge at first, but we took another look at what had happened and came up with some good solutions. So we are hoping to ship out all orders early which is a relief!

 

We are excited for the reception of the new product and are looking to go into full production. The goal of our business is to create and launch a product. Get it to the point where we can train someone to do it and thereby creating a full time job for someone local. Rinse and repeat!

So this week is going fairly well. I intend to push the prowler tonight to progress on that portion of my goals. I have been speaking with someone new on the dating app I use so that is trending in a positive direction. I am not going into these things expecting much of anything but the discussions are doing wonders for my self confidence.

 

I have signed up for the virtual challenge but have yet to log miles. I am planning on going for a walk with the dog tonight to get something in. I believe my usual trail is 2-3 miles. My cousin has joined me so I am excited to have someone participating with me!

 

I am really pushing to hit 30lbs down and I currently am at 28.1. I intend to eat another salad today for lunch with a light dinner to keep me pushing in the right direction. I had a rather stressful morning so I stopped to get a bagel with cream cheese due to my late start but it is what it is. I logged it an moved on.

It sounds like you're doing a great job here. Well done in not letting the bagel get you down (nolite bageles carborundorum) and carrying on as you were. Best way. Keep it up. 

Your attitude to the dating app situation seems healthy too - I hope it continues trending positive but I'm glad to know you are not letting your self worth be dependent on the outcome.

Week one was a "meh".

 

I did not push the prowler at all last week. Mainly due to working way too much last week. To add a little bit of fun to the mix the water pump in my house went so I had to take that apart and replace that. Fun times!

 

I have set up the challenge and want to institute a scheduled walk or something to start making some progress. Excited for the challenge!

 

I have been talking with some women online and it continues to go well. So i will call that a success for the first week in meeting new people.

I received a nice photo/message from my friends wife over the weekend. It was a photo of me in the pool teaching my godson how to swim. She said "look how much work you've put in, this was last year!"

 

The first thing I thought was teaching my godson to swim. As he no longer needs half of the flotation devices from the photo. But I thought it was worded weirdly. The next thought was the business her husband and I started. But why the photo?

 

It dawned on me that she was referring to my weight loss. And I was terrified to ask. To assume that was what she was referencing. But she said flat out she was talking about the weight I lost and that felt good. Its strange being in that place again. But a good strange. I am noticing things are fitting a bit better as well.

 

I think one of the hardest things for me is that my clothes fit for long periods of time because of the fact that fat settles across my entire body. Its fairly well distributed which means that I don't drop pant sizes quickly. I am wearing the same pants that I wore a year ago and the same size I wore 2 years ago. So its often hard to go by that form of measurement to gauge my weight loss. It is also still very strange to me that I am in the process of losing weight. I am making better decisions sure. But I don't FEEL different. I keep expecting some eye opening moment of hardcore inspiration and its just not coming. Instead my weight is gradually going down, with daily check ins to make sure I am making some form of progress. It's strange.

 

It's even stranger that I can't remember what it felt like to lose weight before. But deep down I think I know it felt a lot like it does now. It wasn't a radical mind altering state of inspiration. It was far more subtle than that. A daily push of small almost unnoticeable changes.
