Time to lose weight!

Today mom and I started a contest to see who could lose 50 lbs the fastest - the Dr really gave mom a hard time the last time she went to see him about how she needs to lose weight because of her diabetes. She has had the diabetes for years with very few problems, but as she is getting older she is starting to see the effects of the diabetes. He told her she has to lose 50 lbs which would basically make all her symptons go away. (if she needs to lose 50, I can just imagine how much he would think I need to lose!) Anyways since this was her wake up call, I figured this would be a good time for me to smarten up too and we can help each other out. I myself am high risk for diabetes since almost every member of my family has it so this can be my wake up call!

Small update

Nothing really too new and exciting happening but am coming down with a cold and want to go to bed early, but it is only 7:00, and if I go to bed now I will be up at 3 in the morning wide awake!

Had a wonderful lunch today with a group from work, my "good riddance" lunch as I nicknamed it. About 2o were able to make it despite it being a crazy week with the deputy minister arriving tomorrow, and our deputy registrar there today. Unfortuneately it was planned a little short notice so not every one was able to be informed in time so many missed out. We went to the ***** for an amazing buffet. Everyone really enjoyed it so I was happy to see that. 3 managers were able to come, as well as our union rep - was nice they were willing to take the time out of their busy schedules to attend - meant a lot to me. I'm going to miss a lot of them - there are a lot of great people at the ***** ! Only two more days working the day shift - can hardly believe it - some of these people I have worked with for 8 years!

After lunch our union rep approached me about being the union steward for the night shift - well I definately have experience in grievances and disciplinary meetings (as most of you who know me will agree) So that will be a new and interesting experience. I will have a paid training session coming up soon, just not sure when or where at the moment.
