I know that it has been ages since I have written in my journal, but in my defence I have been working hard at getting caught up on all my school work. I have not only got caught up now but am well ahead of the class also. I had two reports that haven’t even been given a due date for done and ready to turn in when we get back from break, and have gotten a good start into the really big paper that we have to do. Now all three of those are for the new aromatherpay course that we have only started about 4 weeks ago. I have one more written test in reflexology and one more pratical assessment in Swedish body massage, and than have to do the 4 day first aid course and I am totally through with Swedish body massage, Reflexology, and Salaon Pratices (which is Health and Safety and Frist Aid combined). So for the next month or so, I plan on concentrating totally on araomtherpay and Anatomy and Physiology, with finishing up those last couple of things. On the first of March, we start block three and all the courses will change. Than I will be taking Communications ( which I might self study), Client Based Counseling, and Organic Chemistry. We would also be finished with Anatomy by that time but still working on the case studies and pratical assessments for Aromatherpay. All should be finished by the beginning of June. I did sit that test for Indian Head Massage that our entire class missed and had to do. That was passed but still waiting almost 3 weeks later for any notification of that or my certificates, and I will remind you that course was finished in June of 2004. so hopefully they will get it sorted here soon. I have been starting to get more clients, Indian Head Massage and some reflexology. Also, some of the clients have been volunteering for pratice sessions of swedish body massage and vying for the aromatherpay case studies when I start those. Only problem that I will have is probably having too MANY volunteers 😯 We did my monthly weigh in today. after all the excesses of the last month, and water retention from PMT I still only had a .6 pound gain for the month of December. Not too bad when most people normally gain 3-7 pds during that same time. We also did my measurements today. The last time that they were done was on the first of June. So in the last seven months, I have lost 18.4 pds and 22.75 inches in total off various parts of my body. Even though it has not been a huge weight loss over the last 7 months, I have had some considerable losses in the over all inches and shape changing part of my body. I can’t wait to see what it will be like after I have my tummy tuck. 😛 Some of the bigger losses were 3.5 inches off my chest, 2 inches off my waist and 2 inches of my hips. I also had some big losses of my thighs, and upper arms. Once that loose skin is also removed, there will be an even more noticeable difference there also. I plan on doing some 2 year anniversary photos and an overall lost of weight and inches for the 2 years on the anniversary of my surgery in March, or as near to it in order for my husband to do the picutres and measurements. That will be something to look forward to seeing updated here and on the WLS portion of my web page 😉
