No, not 12 lbs lost, that would be written in much a much bigger title. But today an I am wearing size 12 jeans! They are very comfortable and I can remember trying them on about a month ago and not being able to come close to snapping or zipping them! I have to come to grips with my slow weightloss and I am really close to that size 10where I am to be. I will be on vacation in April and won't be expecting much of a loss, I will be happy with just not gaining on vacation. What a wonderful NSV!
Now for some sad events going on with me. As many of you know, We lost our home in Hurricane Katrina, We finally found a contractor at a price we could afford to rebuild it. We did all the necessary things before selecting him, we checked his license, references and past customers, the guy seemed reputable so we went with him. We agreed upon periodic payments based on various levels of completion. So far we have paid in $46,000 and in the weeks following our last payment to him, he has become increasingly difficult to contact. Not returning calls very quickly, and today we hear through a friend that his secretary was fired because he is filing bankruptcy! My husband went to his office today and found an eviction notice taped to his door. I have been crying for days now, what makes me so angry is that he knew this was coming even as he requested our last payment. He had no intention of doing any work. I filed a complaint with the Louisiana Attorney General and State Licensing Board, but I doubt either one will be able to get our money back. It took us 5 years to save enough money to rebuild after the Hurricane and now this...It's just so frustrating.
