Waiting...

Lord, please give me patience... AND HURRY!

I feel like I am in a current or perpetual state of waiting.

My mom had a nuclear stress test done yesterday. Now we are waiting on the doctor to call with results. The good news is that they didn't rush her up for immediate surgery! But, we are still waiting on all of the results.

***UPDATE: Mom talked to the nurse and there is NO sign of blockage and her heart is in good condition! I am working on her right now and she says she will dig back out her weight watcher materials because I feel like her blood pressure will come down naturally if she will just loose a little more weight. Until then, they have her on a new blood pressure medicine that should do the trick. PRAISE THE LORD!!!***

On Tuesday I weighed in at exactly 10 lbs from goal. (I have been weighing "heavier" this time around on Tuesdays because I am going to my body pump class at 5:30am, then eating breakfast, drinking lots of coffee, and then weighing in!) Anyway, when my leader Kim saw this she handed me a piece of paper asking me to apply for a job with Weight Watchers. Since I am within 10 lbs of goal I can get a job as a Weigherinnerlady, aka Receptionist. When I am within 2 lbs of goal I can apply to get my own meeting. Anyway, I submitted my application and resume. They emailed me with a link for a "personality" test. I took it. Now I am waiting to hear from them again.

I think filling out the application may be just what I need to get out of this state of maintaining (which I view as a major accomplishment) on toward my goal! Already this week I have thought twice about what I put in my mouth because I have no wiggle room. I can't even gain 0.2! I must stay where I am or go down!!! Cheer me on will ya!

Okay, so for now I am waiting. What are you doing???

Yay for your mom and I bet if she loses it will help, Jay was very successful at reducing his blood pressure through diet and exercise.
