Down a pound!!!

SmileyCentral.com

Down a pound!!! Woohooo!!! It's been a long time since I could say I lost some weight I'm determined to work out today and keep on trying to make the healthy food choices.

I'm feeling better about things today. Yesterday, I was tired and feeling melancholy and thinking of the path not taken. But, I would never trade my marriage or having my son! There is nothing like them. I think it's just because I'm at a stalled point right now. I'm not in school till the fall and have too much time to think! I'm looking for a part time job but I want one at night so we don't have to get daycare. There is no secretarial jobs at night so maybe i'll end up working at a grocery store or something. I could use a little income.

Yeah, maybe when I get older and retire there will be more of a chance to travel and study marine life. When we were young, we traveled some with scuba and had a lot of fun. We waited 10 yrs to have a child and it was like our early retirement. Not really, cause we were working. We used to say when we lived in Maui, 'look at all the retirees on the beach'. It sucks that now you can enjoy life when you're retired and old and who knows how much time you have left to live. Wouldn't it be awesome to retire when your young and do the traveling and really enjoy your time and then work later when your older! Can only dream.

Hope everyone is having a good week!!

Woo hoo for the loss, and yes, we can all dream! I think is sucks that by the time most of us get to retire we are old and not necessarily in great shape to have fun and travel... my dad died just one year after he retired, after working 12-14 hours days all his life.... he drowned actually. So yep, I think you need to try and get as much outta life along the way, cos you never know what may happen tomorrow.

Way to go on the loss. It would be good if we could retire early, I see so many people work hard all their life only to do nothing when they give up work because there too sick to do anthing else.

I know what you mean about wanting to retire young. I wish I could just hit the lottery and have all my money troubles taken care of :)
