So Depressed!

You'll have to excuse my mood today. I'm in a depressed mood for a few different reasons. But sometimes you have to vent and get it off your chest and this blog is an avenue for which I can do that in.

I'm depressed because I weighed in today. I haven't weighed in about a month! And I've gained many...many...many pounds. I now weigh 170.6! 170's! That's depressing in and of itself!

I'm depressed because I hate my job right now. I work in a law firm and my attorney is going to be retiring. But he hasn't really said when. The other attorneys are covertly trying to pick up his files. But no one is really giving good direction and I feel caught in between. Plus, I love my attorney. We work so well together. He is the most normal man in the office. I really dislike (really dislike) these other two attorneys. And they are the ones that I will have to be working with. And am kind of working with right now as they are slyly trying to pick up my files. And I just hate it! BIG BIG FROWN FACE :(

But there is one silver lining that is going to get me through the day (I hope, it's still early). Matt's coming in tonight! Yay! He can shower me with affection and tell me how gorgeous I am. That should perk me up a bit! lol. I'm so excited for him to come here! Not so excited to have to go to O'Hare airport! lol. It's not far, I'm just not as familiar with that airport. I'll be fine! Small price to pay.

My motto for today is going to be...Just make it through today!

Oh and another good thing is that my house is really clean! Really clean for me at least! Wow! I'm impressed! Good job Amanda!


  1. I love how you started this post with "depressed" and ended with "impressed"!!! If you reread your post you will see that you talked yourself right from negative to positive! Good job, Amanda!!!

    Sorry things at work are bad right now:( I know that can be very stressful! No worries about the scale, either, girlie! You will get back to where you want to be - you've done it before and you can do it again!

  2. Oh you are right? Maybe I'm more optimistic and positive than I thought! Thanks Marisa!

  3. I have been a legal secretary for 22 years, and have worked with some a-holes. It comes with the territory in law firms I think!

    Hang in there - that weight is temporary and by next week you'll be in the 160's again. Hooray for Matt coming!

  4. awe...big hug...but you did find some positives...and that means you will be alright whatever comes your way!

  5. Your sweetie visiting should help make you feel better.

    I know a weight gain can be very depressing. But fortunately you know how to lose it and you have the tools to do it. So it will go down with a little work. It's not a permanent number. :)

    I hope you have an absolutely fantastic weekend and you're smiling all the time. :D
