How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

1.  If you were a character on Friends, who would you be and why?

As much as I'd like to think I would be Rachel (gorgeous and put together), I am pretty sure I'm more Phoebe than anyone else. I'm a little bit nuts and tend to not worry about what other people think of me :)

2.  If you weren't in your current career what other career do you think you would have done?

I always wanted to be a singer. Like in a band. On the radio.

3. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were 6?

I never really had anything like that growing up. I don't remember ever saying I wanted to be this or that. I just enjoyed my life at the time. Dorky, I know.

4.  Do you think everyone only has one soulmate or true love? Or are there multiple people for everyone?

I honestly don't know. If you'd asked me when I was 18 and in love for the first time I would have said yes, everyone has a soulmate and true love exists. Now, I think that although it is possible for people to have a soulmate and find true love, that it doesn't happen very often and there isn't just one person for someone. I think you can make it work with many people, depending on where you both are in your lives and if you both want to. I guess after being hurt in the worst way, I'm a little cynical now. Sometimes it makes me sad.

5.  Repeat question.  Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real Life: This has been a long week and I'm glad it is finally over. There has been a lot of garbage going on at work lately. Power struggles, ego wars, etc. It is exhausting. Outside of work, yoga was good this week. My house got cleaned yesterday and my cat is feeling better. So life is happy there. Plus fall TV has started back up, I'm going to a concert tonight with Beth, then Chicago next week with all of y'all and then to see Duran Duran with my BFF on 10/6!

Blog Land: I've been a big 'ol slacker. Partly because work has been sucking the life out of me and partly because I don't feel like I have anything exciting to say. I need to get better about that and find things to post about. Even if it isn't earth shattering, right? :)
