That time of year has approached. This evening I begin my 3rd full time semester of graduate school. As stated previously, I'm excited to learn but not excited to read textbooks or write papers. And now, I'm not even sure I want to do this for the rest of my life. I am seriously considering a career change (before I even start one, I might add) to being a teacher(?!) or even a school counselor?! This has absolutely nothing to do with my fatgirlblogging, but it's something thats now on my mind besides food.
My Friday began very stressfully, finding out that one of my relatives died and that I would have to figure out a way to get home for a funeral in LI on Sunday morning. Pair that up, with aggravation and chaos at work and it turned out to be a rough day. I had to go into Talbot's to work after work, which only added to my frustration (remind me that I need to QUIT!) and luckily found someone to cover my Sunday shift. While I working at the register towards the end of the night, in walks Adam with a purple rose for me because he knew I had such a shitty day. I am a very lucky girl.
Sunday, I went to the funeral. I saw a bunch of relatives I didn't remember, who remember me as a baby and not a voluptuous 23 year old with tattoos and spike heels. At least I got to tell them I was a graduate student? After the funeral and cemetery, we headed over to someone's house and there was a giant spread of Jewish foods including: salted fish, bagels, cream cheese, tuna/egg/whitefish/potato salads, cookies and fruit. I chose to make a plate of fruit and a cookie or two, instead of eating salty Jew food. It was PAINFUL not to make a bagel with lox and eat it. But I persevered.
For dinner, I went with my mom and her friend Jackie to a Jewish deli back at home, and ended up eating: salty Jew food. And man, was it good.

I am still successfully a NON-SMOKER (2 weeks strong!) and I've recently began an attempt to stop eating my cuticles.
So today, was weigh-in day....and how did I do?
I, Jillian, lost the 2.6 pounds I had gained last week! Wohoooo!
167.2 pounds of woman! Only 2 more pounds for my goal of weighing 165 by next week. Ummm, I really hope that happens! I'm setting up more goals soon and I'd really love to write more but I've got A LOT to do and not so much time to get it done!!!
