A Juicy Jewel Hidden Near MCAS Iwakuni

Since I have been working hard to lose weight, Saori introduced me a great little shop near the back gate of base. It's a juice bar called Vegetrip. It's a really cute shop beside Mameka. Vegetrip offers a variety of healthy choices in the way of fresh pressed juices and smoothies. This is something that is unusual to find in Japan, especially in a small town like Iwakuni. It is refreshing to have an option like this and so close to base. The shop is really cute and has a small seating area so you can sit with friends while enjoying your juice. Saori went with me last week to grab a drink before lunch.

Small Steps For The Future

Last week when I wrote the post "Bye Bye Fat Girl" it was a way for me to tell myself I was serious about the weight loss this time. I wasn't expecting the response I got from all of you. So many comments, emails, Facebook messages, and more and all were positives messages. Thank you everyone for all the encouragement and advice. You have no idea how much I appreciate it. The support I feel this time makes me actually believe that I can achieve my goals.

I Feel Like An Adult Again

Today was my first day at the Rib House. I actually enjoyed it. It felt great to be actually working again. Yeah I am basically making minimum wage but its something. Plus I am actually feeling productive again. It has been over 18 months since I worked a legitimate job. Yes I know teaching is a job but it is only an hour a week. It feels different to actually go to work and punch a time clock. I feel like an adult again. This base has had me feeling like a child for a while.

Bye Bye Fat Girl

I have always been plus size. Before I blamed it on my schedule (no time to cook healthy or work out). I blamed it on it being too expensive to buy healthy stuff all the time. Then I blamed it on Hashimoto's. Yes I have put on weight because of the Hashimoto's but I need to be honest with myself and admit that I am a bigger part of the problem than the disease.
