My Feelings

Kyle and I are going to El Paso this weekend to look at homes with our realtor. We are really excited to get this going and I have my fingers crossed that we will be able to put an offer on a home *squeel*. Amidst all of our excitement we are still getting several negative opinions about this move (at no point have we asked anyone their opinion because frankly it doesn't matter). I am sick and tired of people thinking that we want their opinion. We made this decision for Kyle to take this job because it is good for his career and because we have heard AMAZING things about Bliss and the area from people who actually have been there. Here is my response to the negative people:



Thanks for letting me vent!!

On a very positive note, since I went on vacation a month ago I tried my hardest to watch my calorie intake and still try to lose weight. 

The last time I did a post I weighed:

133.4

Well I weighed myself this morning and was shocked to see this number pop up:

128.4

HOLY COW!!!!! I am so excited, I am 3.4 pounds away from my goal. I honestly thought that I would have gained weight on my trip. I am just hoping that I can keep it up.

Don't forget about my 200 followers giveaway, tomorrow night I will be announcing the winner!

Have a great day!

  3. Woo Hoo!! Go Jen!!! And I feel you on the negativity! While this place has been our most challenging place so far, a big part of why we wanted to do the military life was so we could experience places we never would have otherwise. So even though we aren't always happy here (just wait until you step on your first goat head barefoot....) I have LOVED exploring the area (it is SO unique, everyone compares it to Arizona but it is completely different) and we have met so many AWESOME people here. And really, life is what you make it, I honestly think the negative people want to be unhappy anyway:) And I'm so excited for you to house hunt!! I love looking at houses and I wish I was still in the market for a house so I could check out all the houses for sale I see.

  4. I hate it when people decided to give their opinion when it isn't asked for. It's a big reason relationships get hurt...Dumb people. haha Love the new blog design!

  5. WOW! That is so awesome about your weight loss!! I need to get my tail in gear! As for the naysayers, just ignore them. Or just be blatantly rude like I am: "If only I cared what you thought about us moving to Ft. Bliss! Bless your hearts!" Works like a charm to shut people up!

  12. Yay Jen! That is so awesome and you must feel so great being so close to your goal, keep up the hard work! Also, don't worry about what other people say about your decision to move, it's up to you and your hubby to decide what's best for our family. But, you already knew that ;)

  15. Don't let those negative people get to you. It bothers me how negative some people are at other people's happiness.
