Finally I'm home. Sorry I've been MIA for the past two days but I was in the middle of moving and studying for my final, then this morning I took my final and drove the 10 hours home. Moving out was an adventure to say the least. I woke up at 8:30am and at 9am started packing up my car with boxes which took about an hour because I'm one person and I had to walk down two flights of stairs and out to my car then back up and back down etc etc etc. At 10:30 the guys showed up to pick up my furniture to take to storage and 2 hours later all of my furniture and boxes that I fit into my car were in the storage unit. Then I took a little break and just chilled for an hour and a half to talk to my friend. Then I finished packing up my room, making sure I organized everything in a manner that I would remember. Made a trip to comcast to return the cable boxes and dvr's, and another trip to the storage unit to bring some more stuff. Then back to my apartment to pack up my car for home and the very last bit of stuff that needed to go into storage. Took a shower, then cleaned my bathroom and bedroom really well. And finally I was done moving out at about 7pm. So I burned major calories yesterday haha. I put it into a calorie burn calculator under "Housecleaning (General)" even though it was so much more than that, and it said for an hour I would burn 252 calories. So multiply that by about 7 or 8, so around 1800 calories burned. WOW. lol. And that is just an estimate, the way I was running up and down the flights of stairs and heavy lifting etc probably burned so much more. Last night I studied for about 3 hours with my friends from class and then we all said fuck it and went to the bar to get a drink. I had one MGD 64, because I know exactly how many calories are in it (64 obviously haha) and it doesn't taste that bad. Plus I deserved it after that day! Took my final this morning and I think I did pretty well. We will see when I get my grade back. Then I picked up this guy Josh who lives near me at home and he drove home with me, being my iPod DJ the entire way which was awesome because we have very similar taste in music (basically all over the spectrum). So we talked and listened to good music and it made the 10 hour drive go really fast! So now I am home! My best friend came over for a while tonight to hang out for a bit, but she has to work at 9am so she left at about 1am to drive home to sleep. Tomorrow I'm going to a concert with the guy I drove home with and his parents haha because they had an extra ticket. It's a band called Dream Theater, I don't know if anyone has ever heard of them, but I love them and am so happy I was offered the ticket hahaha! Oh and best news is that I am now down to 146lbs. I finally got to weigh myself when I got home because I have a scale here. I haven't been able to weigh myself in so long because I had to pack my scale up as you all know. Now I just really have to be careful while being home because food is a temptation here unlike at my apartment where I can fast forever and ever and no one will know that I don't keep food in my apartment. I am exhausted right now though so I really need to get some sleep. I will catch up on everyones blogs when I wake up tomorrow and leave comments and such. I hope everyone is doing well and again sorry for not being on here for a couple days. Think thin girlies....gnite.

Phew, I haven't eaten a single thing since last monday night 7/20! I just want to be skinnnnnyyyyyy damnit. I can't even weigh myself until I get home on Thursday night because I packed up my scale. I should have left it out but I really really really just need to be done with this never ending task of packing up this stupid shithole lol. So I ran around like a maniac today...went to class this morning (almost overslept whoops), got my test back that I took last week, I only got an 82 and I was really pissed cuz I thought I did well on it. I hate when that happens, but oh well I think I still should have an A in the class because everything we do gets graded and I have A's on everything else. After class I went tanning, then I washed my extremely dirty car so now it looks white again instead of gray haha. I came back to my apartment and read for an hour, then I went and reserved a storage unit for all my stuff to go into, bought an unsweetened iced tea from McDonald's which is the only thing in that godforsaken place that doesn't have calories, and now I'm laying in bed relaxing and I just finished a really cute book called Lovehampton by Sherri Rifkin, I definitely reccommend it. Tonight I'm going to finish packing the rest of my random stuff and then tomorrow I get to have two guys help me move it into storage, clean the apartment and study for my chem final. Can't wait for Thursday afternoon so all of this stress will be lifted off my shoulders. I just want foooood but I can't can't can't! :-(

my life is sooo boring right now. Nothing new and different to report today. Went to wal-mart and got moving supplies, make-up, lotion, gum, and sugar-free no cal juice mix. Then I went tanning, came back and watched some tv and took a lonnnnnggggg shower. I should be packing but I'm really tired and keep getting light-headed everytime I stand up from not eating anything since Tuesday. My friend invited me over for dinner tonight but I told her I just went to wal-mart and bought enough food to last me until my trip home (total lie) so I couldn't eat with her. I'm adding a 2 pictures of me from last weekend so you girls can see where I am weight wise.

That is my mantra for the next week! My other mantra is "packing, packing, packing," getting ready to move all of my stuff in this apartment into a storage unit so I can go home for August before I have to move my stuff into my new apartment! So excited and seriously, packing and cleaning are amazing workouts. I don't know exactly how many calories they burn but yesterday I think I ran up and down my stairs about 20 times, hauled 5 boxes that were about 25-50 pounds each around my room, suitcases full of winter clothes, and scrubbed my entire bathroom (good arm workout). I know its not straight cardio or anything, but boy does it keep your mind off food! I think I might reward myself by going jewelry or makeup shopping today, I just don't know what to do with all this money I'm saving by not buying food and not eating! Anyways, thanks for the comments girls and keep up the good work...think thin always!

Ugh sorry I haven't written in a while. Anyways, in my last post I talked about a dress that I got at Michael Kors and my mom took a picture of me in it on my phone (crappy quality) so I posted it here, tell me what you think! I know I look enormous so don't comment on my weight haha! So the reason I haven't been posting is because I've been so busy with school, planning to move out, finding furniture for my new apartment and between those things the only other thing I've had time to do is sleep and go tanning. I know it's so bad for my skin, but tanning just makes me happy whether its laying outside or going to the salon. Either way it makes me nice and warm and I look thinner when I'm tan! I've been fasting ever since I got back to school, so far no food Tues, Wed or today and will continue until I get home next Friday. I'm too scared to weigh myself after this past weekend. I know the number is not going to make me happy, so I'll weigh myself right before I leave for home. Need to not slip up again, I'm so annoyed with myself!

I love love love love being home with my mom and my friends. I've missed them so much and I've been spending every waking second with them. I got home thursday night and hung out with my mom and best friend and her boyfriend who slept over at my house because her parents are strict about the whole sleeping situation. I was good about food and only had a salad. Friday we woke up and my mom made us breakfast, eggs and bacon and toast. I had a little bit of eggs and half a piece of bacon and lots of water. My mom then took me shopping at the outlets so we were walking around for 4 hours so I burned some calories haha, and she bought me some really nice clothing including 4 things from Michael Kors :-) and 2 pairs of shorts from J. Crew. My mom hasn't been feeling well, apparently she got lyme disease a few days ago but she's on antibiotics so she's feeling better, so I made her dinner that night. I made a big salad with lettuce, slightly steamed broccoli, carrots and cucumbers and I grilled a piece of steak for us to share and sauteed some mushrooms. I ate the salad and had 3 very small slices of steak. That night we went to the bars for my best friends 21st, and it was a lot of fun except for her mom was being a complete bitch and I'm ready to just have my friend move in with me because the situation is getting a little ridiculous and it makes me sad that she has to deal with it 24/7. Today we went to the pool and laid out for like 4 hours and swam around, but then she had to go home and work in her neighbors barn and her own, but we made plans for her and her bf to come over later so they could have a really good homecooked meal and time away from her mom. However, her mom stopped that quickly because she apparently hates me and my mom and is trying to keep her daughter away from us because she has too much fun at my house. So my friend and her boyfriend show up at around 11pm exhausted and frustrated with the whole thing and pretty much eat, drink a little, watch some tv with me and then they passed out which was completely understood. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. We're supposed to go and ride her horses which will be fun as long her mom stays the hell away from us, because if she says one word to me I think I might snap. But all in all, I've been doing pretty well with controlling my food intake, I haven't been as strict with my calorie counting, but I also haven't been binge eating at all. I have been on the move these past couple of days so anything I do eat definitely gets burned off. We shall see when I get back on the scale, but hopefully I will be the same weight as when I left. If not I'm not gonna freak out, just fast and work out and things will snap back. Gotta stay positive because if not it might turn into a binge and that just equals more weight gain and it's a downward spiral from there. So girls, stay positive and believe in yourselves! Just say no to bingeing haha.
