Happy Monday!

Greetings Blogland! I have a case of the blahs today. I think the high of just being banded has worn off and now I am realizing that if I want weightloss, I'm going to have to do the work. Which I guess is okay. I don't mind the work. But it isn't very exciting.

I used to take little mini trips on the weekends every few months to combat the blahs, but I've been really broke for awhile so that isn't an option. My fella has been out of work since the first of the year so things are pretty tight around our house these days. I've also been feeling unappreciated and underpaid at work. I make my boss a lot of money which he spends recklessly and then always claims poverty when it comes to passing it on. I haven't had a raise in almost three years and I lost a bonus that I used to get so really I am making less than I made in 2006/07. I started my own little company awhile back, but it is growing very slowly so I still have to work at my regular job.

I work with one other person. Her name is Sarah and she is a great person and one of my best friends, but she can be a HUGE FLAKE. She often comes to work several hours late and sometimes not at all. She performs her specific duties, but all the incidentals fall on me. And my boss knows that if he wants something done, he has to have me do it, because I am always the one he asks to take on new projects.

So thanks for coming to my pity party! My food has been good. I don't weigh until Thursday. Hey - does anyone need some size 24s? I have some clothes that I want to pass on. Let me know if you want them. Happy Monday!

Speaking of my co-worker, I was telling her how poor I was these days and she told me that her and her husband made $100,000.00 for the first time this past year. WTF??? And remember that I mentioned that last year she lost 60 lbs. WITHOUT TRYING!!!! And she hardly ever comes to work. It is not fair!

I hear ya... nothing fair these days. My husband is only on-call so pretty much out of work also. I only work half of what I did before. Times are TOUGH!!! I feel your pain.

My just-been-banded high is gone too! I am having to work on this...not that I thought I could just lose without doing anything, but damn it, I want to lose! My fill is on Wed, so keep the fingers crossed!

I'm right there with ya feeling Monday Blues. It was a rainy dreary day and I'm bummed because I DON'T have the band. It's a little scary to hear that a few of you are feeling bummed with the band. I understand from reading everyone's blogs that there are good days and bad days - pre and post band, but are you wishing you hadn't done it?

The economy sucks right now so the fact that your side venture is growing at all is an indicator that it should boom when the economy does. Until then, stay strong.

Bonnie - I have no complaints about the band. I think it is great and I am very glad I did it, but it isn't magic and I still have to work it. FB - I have a property management company and prior to this last year, I had one client. Now I have two clients so you could say that I had 100% growth in 2009. I am on the verge of adding another client this month so you could say that I will have tripled my client load. This is why statistics can be misleading LOL.

Have you tried asking help or intervention from your HR department? If you have and they continually ignores your concerns, I would highly recommend hiring an employment lawyer. If you’re still working for the same guy, do not let another three years to pass before he completely denies the compensations and benefits you deserve.
