BORED with Weight Loss - new pic of me

I'm so over it.  I don't have much to update.  I guess I will update here when I have my revision which will be in a few months.  In the mean time, I am living my life.  Not gaining, not losing, NOT OBESESSING over weight.  I am living.  I hope you all are doing the same. :) 
Happy Belated Thanksgiving.
